- This is my handpicked list of some of the best fitness blogs for females, beginners, bodybuilders, over weight individuals that provide up-to-date, scientifically-backed information on health, nutrition, lifestyle, diet, weight loss, workout plans, eating plans, and more. If you want to start your own blog in the health and fitness industry, I recommend following and learning from these fitness blog examples.
The best place to start is always at the beginning and by answering some common questions people have about blogs in the health, fitness, weight loss, exercise, workout, diet, and nutrition industries so you can decide if you want to start your own blog and make a business out of it.
Keep on reading or use the table of contents to jump ahead.
Who Is The Best Fitness Blogger?
There isn't one person whom I would label as the best fitness blogger. There are way too many blogs covering health and fitness to judge any one as "the best." But, you can learn a lot from each of them, even if it's a general fitness blog. Labeling anyone as "the best" at anything is an exercise in futility and subjectivity, as the best to me isn't going to be the best to you.
Can I Start A Fitness Blog?
Yes, you can, but before you do so I recommend you follow and learn from some of the blogs I am going to recommend in this post so you can decide what niche in the health and fitness space you want to focus on. You can pull a lot of great ideas from other bloggers so you ace your website design, know how to help your site users and visitors, and turn your blog into a real business.
Take The Pain Out Of Your Health Journey With The Right Blog
Whether you're serious about improving your health, the top blogs have content that will help you do exactly that.
Whether you want to join a gym or exercise at home doesn't make a difference, because the key to being healthy isn't where you workout. The key to a healthier lifestyle is getting the right advice and guidance that suits your fitness goals.
And finding the right blog to do that is important because when it comes to achieving better health and getting into good shape, you're in a class of your own which depends on your age, weight, circumstances, environment, support system, finances, and many other factors.
The Top Fitness Blogs Appeal To Specific Groups Of Users
Bloggers in the health and fitness space tend to focus on specific niches with their business.
In fact, when you search you'll find that some experts get very specific with their fitness blog.
You'll find content to help business people improve their health and their business at the same time, as it's difficult to have a successful business or to keep one running if you're not healthy.
Some bloggers in the health space focus on back pain, and some focus on sleep issues, as these are also common challenges and problems people face and are important aspects of physical, mental, and emotional fitness.
Many top fitness sites include fitness management tools to help their audience stay focused, provide the best workout for each individual, and even provide coaching and training through email.
These 4 blog and sites are worth checking out, in my opinion.
1. Greg Doucette
Greg Doucette is an IFBB professional bodybuilder and one of the most outspoken - in a good way - fitness professionals. Here are some of his credentials right off of his website:
- Expert in Aesthetics, Strength, Education, and Charisma
- IFBB Pro Bodybuilder
- Guinness World Record-Holding Powerlifter
- Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Kinesiology
- YouTuber with more than 1,620,000 subscribers
- Coach of more than 1,000 diet, training, and supplements clients around the world
- Published Author
- NOT: A doctor, lawyer, dietician, chef, astronaut, sex therapist, police officer
Greg's YouTube channel has 1.62 million subscribers. He's popular because he knows what he's talking about when it comes to health, diet, fitness, losing weight, staying healthy, and he doesn't tolerate any garbage advice many "gurus" are providing and isn't afraid to call these people out in his videos.
His YouTube videos are jam-packed with actionable fitness advice, like how to lose weight, improve your health, build muscle and strength, and many of them are quite funny, too, while at the same time providing serious fitness advice.
I personally lost 34 pounds in 5 months from following Greg's eating advice off of YouTube.
Whether you're thinking about starting a fitness blog, or you're serious about improving your health and care about your fitness, then Greg Doucette one of the top fitness blogs and YouTube channels to follow.
2. Steve Kamb
Website: Nerd Fitness
Steve Kamb started Nerd Fitness "in 2009 as a simple blog to provide a fun place for nerds to learn about health and fitness...and live better lives."
According to his website, the first and foremost goal of Nerd Fitness is to help individuals who want to get into better shape and live healthier lives to remove all the barriers, whether mental, physical, or emotional, that keep them from changing their lives for the better.
The Nerd Fitness website and blog contains all of the latest scientifically backed information on exercise, mindset, and diet to help people get into great physical condition.
The Nerd Fitness YouTube channel has 50,000+ subscribers and combined with the Nerd Fitness Blog, these are two great places to learn about how to succeed as a fitness blogger.

Mind Body Green
The mindbodygreen site is packed full of tips on fitness, workout, health (mental and emotional). From my own exploration of this site, almost every blogging topic that could possibly be covered related to health or fitness is found here.
Here are just a few of the things you'll find on their site, besides their blog.

The people I've featured above are some of the best in the health and fitness industry.

The most important thing you can do to grow your audience and make more money is to create high-quality content by writing posts that are helpful, valuable, and engaging.
Creating a superior blog in the fitness industry and creating a healthy, thriving business from your blog is like a workout in and of itself and also requires help.

They usually have a support network and one or two business partners to help with planning, creating, and sharing their blog content. This is something you should consider doing, too if you want your blog to succeed.
Successful fitness bloggers don't work alone. They network with other bloggers, influencers, and brands to grow their fitness blogs, audiences, and revenue.
Success in the health and fitness industry and in creating a great platform full of content that helps people achieve their fitness goals and lead a healthy lifestyle takes hard work.
