Top 30 Best Fitness Blogs to Be Following in 2018

Top 30 Best Fitness Blogs to Be Following in 2015

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 2018

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!
