Top 30 Best Fitness Blogs to Be Following

Our top blog lists are always a big hit on Wealthy Gorilla, so here we are again in 2017 with updated lists to give you!

As a big lover of fitness and working out, I follow a lot of great fitness blogs;

So, you know the drill. Just like we’ve done previously with the best blogs for entrepreneurs, bloggers and motivation, we’ve compiled a list of all the top fitness blogs to be following in 2017.

If you haven’t already checked out the other lists I’ve just mentioned above, I’ll leave a link to each of them at the bottom of this article so you can check them out later. For now, however, let’s get into some of the greatest fitness content on the web.

In this list I’ve named the 30 best fitness blogs, in my own opinion of course, and given the name of their founder and a little bit about them. The list also covers a complete range of styles such as bodybuilding, weight training, female fitness, running, calisthenics, you name it.


Top 30 Best Fitness Blogs 2019

Before I start dropping names, I’ve decided to leave a few of the major blog names out of the top 30 to allow room for the slightly lesser known sites to get a well deserved shout out.

But, just in case you haven’t already heard of these big names, here’s what I left out:


1. Muscle & Brawn

Founded by Steve Shaw – Muscle & Brawn contains a lot of excellent advice on power-lifting and bodybuilding. If this is your desired area of fitness, definitely check out M&B. Steve gives solid, real advice.


2. Scooby’s Workshop

Founded by Scooby Werkstatt – Scooby’s an old school bodybuilder, and provides exactly that; solid, old school bodybuilding advice. Just a quick look at his bio shows that his body has only improved with age. He’s now 54 years old and looking better than when he was 23!


3. Brandon Carter

Founded by Brandon Carter – This is a blog I’ve been following for quite a long time. Brandon is a fitness model and let’s be honest guys, why wouldn’t you want a body like this? Brandon shares his best advice on here that he puts into action himself in his daily life.


4. Nerd Fitness

Founded by Steve Kambs – Nerd Fitness has been an authoritative fitness blog for several years now, and Steve has begun to write about working out and building muscle whilst you’re travelling the world, which is particularly interesting to myself. I’m hoping to jump on a Skype call with him later in the year.


5. Fit Bottomed Girls

Founded by Jennifer Walters & Erin Whitehead – Fit Bottomed Girls is a great fitness website specifically targeted at females, and has a couple of sister sites as well that you shouldn’t definitely take a look at!

6. A Shot of Adrenaline

Founded by Todd Kuslikis – A Shot of Adrenaline is one of my favorite calisthenics blogs as Todd has tonnes of different bodyweight exercises on the site and uses a video to physically show each one being performed. If you’re into bodyweight workouts, you need to head on over to his site now!


7. Simply Shredded

Founded by James Follacchio – Simply Shredded has become incredibly popular within the last few years; the highlight of the website being that it features tonnes of interviews with other great bodybuilders.


8. Tony Gentilcore

9. Breaking Muscle

Founded by Mindith Rahmat – Breaking Muscle is an incredible resource for all fitness enthusiasts, and has a lot of different articles on workout training and fitness knowledge to keep you satisfied.


10. Gym Talk

Founded by Henry Croft – Gym Talk had to be one of my favorite fitness blogs out of the whole list. Why? Because they add humor into the equation, and try not to take things too seriously. That being said, they feature some great advice and a lot of different supplement reviews for you to check out.


11. Born Fitness

Founded by Adam Bornstein – Adam is hugely recognized is the fitness world as being one of the leading experts in the field. Just one quick look at his blog, and you’ll be drenched in testimonials and places where he’s been featured. The testimonial from Arnold Schwarzenegger is enough to convince any this is a blog worth following.


12. Fitness on Toast

Founded by Faya Nilsson – Faya is a personal trainer who not only writes about fitness but also on nutrition, health, fashion and travel. If you can relate to Faya’s passions and lifestyle then you’ll definitely want to check out her blog for inspiration and advice. P.S. the name ‘Fitness on Toast’ came from when she moved to the UK and realized just how much we eat on toast.


13. Catalyst Athletics

Founded by Greg Everett – Catalyst Athletics was founded back in 2006 and focuses solely on olympic weightlifting. A great blog for any weightlifting fanatics.


14. Chronicles of Strength

Founded by Pat Flynn – Chronicles of Strength has some good workout advice and Pat also offers coaching for anyone looking to transform their exercise program.

Founded by John Romaniello – At Roman Fitness Systems, they do two things: Make people hot and get people huge. Choose wisely. What more do I need to say? Start following this fitness blog.


20. Baristi Workout

Founded by Dennis Ratano – I love Baristi Workout because it incorporates so many different calisthenics workouts and interviews with people such as Frank Medrano, a legendary bodyweight master. For any bar fans, Baristi Workout is a must follow.


21. Purely Twins

Founded by Michelle Corso & Lori Morris – Purely Twins is a perfect blog for other females as the twins take you through their journeys in healing their acne, recovering from eczema, pregnancy and other great aspects of life that females might struggle with, revolving around health and fitness.

    I can vouch for Breaking Muscle. Great resource! It’s one of few sites that can grab my attention with genuinely interesting articles. They don’t create content just for the sake of it, like most sites these days. Rather, they seem to genuinely care about presenting high-quality and insightful material.
