Great Fitness Blogs to Follow in 2017
The New Year is fast approaching, and that means one last feast before we consign ourselves back to a fitness regime.
At least, that’s the plan. For so many of us, those good intentions get lost in cold walks to the gym, calorie counting applications and turned down invitations to the pub. Put simply, for most of us, staying fit is hard.
Thankfully though we no longer have to do it alone. The internet has revolutionised the way in which we approach fitness with blogging and social media bringing us closer to a community of experts, enthusiasts and beginners – all of whom offer invaluable advice for fitness fans of all levels.
So, with 2017 almost with us, which fitness blogs should you be following? Here’s our picks, in no particular order:
- Roman Fitness Systems
Roman Fitness Systems has been around for a few years now, but there’s still nothing quite like it. Editor-in-chief John Romaniello has built a blog platform with an editorial style which skews somewhere between scientifically backed workouts, delicious healthy recipes and business advice (useful if you’re planning on turning your passion for fitness into a career), it’s an excellent read. Do be aware though that if you’re taking your tentative first steps into fitness, it might all be a little much.
- Nia Shanks
Formally known as Lift Like a Girl, Nia Shanks recently broke out of the LLAG branding and instead based her fitness blog on herself. Her experiences, her knowledge and her outright honesty. Declaring “workout programs which leave you exhausted” and “fad diets” as bull***, she sets about “arming you with bull****-free information” to help you achieve amazing results. It takes commitment, but her brand of exercises and advice are hard to beat for women (who don’t mind a bit of colourful language).
- Born Fitness
Adam Bornstein is a man who comes very highly recommended. Indeed, when you first visit Born Fitness, you’ll be greeted with a testimonial from the man himself – Arnold Schwarzenegger. From there, Adam delivers a straight talking approach to exercise and nutrition for all fitness levels. It’s excellent, simple advice that you simply can’t do without.
- The Body Coach
It’s been a crazy two years for Joe Wicks since he launched The Body Coach and its signature ‘Lean in 15’ diet and fitness plan. Put simply, his brand has taken off, and with a hugely successful social media presence, has become a TV programme on Channel 4 and a range of books detailing his ethos. Hugely approachable and based around tasty food, The Body Coach presents an easy way to get into fitness for 2017.
- Fitness on Toast
Though it started as a platform for holistic living, Fitness on Toast has grown into an amazing fitness blog. Exceptionally friendly and with food at its very heart, Fitness on Toast shows you how to eat healthy, train healthy and even dress well, with author Faya illuminating the path all the way.
