The Top 20 Fitness Blogs on the Net

Are you interested in reading some good fitness blogs?  Who isnt!  I read a lot of fitness sites everyday, and these are some of the best fitness blogs on the net (well besides Gym Junkies… duh!! )

By the way if you’re new here, I recommend checking out my new site which teaches you how to lose belly fat in just 15 minutes a day…


The Top 20 fitness blogs on the net…

#20 – Weight Ladder

Weight Ladder is a blog specifically written for people who want to lose weight.   I’m not sure who writes the site,  but they are putting out quality posts almost every day.

It’s tough to keep posting every day, so if a blog can do it while still putting out great content, then I applaud them.

# 19 – The IF life

The IF life is another cool blog written by Mike O Donnell that focuses on health and longevity.  One of his I posts I just came across made fun of fitness magazines, so I give him kudos there!

The IF life posts pretty often, so you can be sure there is always new content popping up.

#18 – Women’s Diet and Fitness

Angie over at Women’s Diet and Fitness has some great posts specifically for women.  Some of the things she touches on frequently are diets, goal setting and burning fat.

I think this is the only women’s specific blog I posted…hmmm

#17 – Eric Cressey

Eric Cressey is kind of like the wonder kid in the fitness world.  At only 26 years old, he already has a book out and is one of the most respected trainers in the world.  His work with elite baseball players and rehab athletes is nothing short of remarkable.

#16 – Fight Geek

Fight Geek is a video blog by Kira.  He posts videos every day which should help any type of fighter with their training.  If you’re a video guy and like crazy training, Fight Geek is your site.

#15 – Fitness Black Book

Rusty at fitness black book has a cool blog which focuses on functional training.  Like Gym Junkies, he’s trying to get people away from the bodybuilding workouts and into a more diverse workout.

His killer personality really shines through in his writing as well.

#14 – Zen to Fitness

Zen to Fitness is a blog written by Chris, which takes a “Zen” like approach to health and fitness.  Chris makes posts on a number of topics including food, exercises and most importantly eliminating stress from your life.

#13Alwyn Cosgrove

Cosgrove is THE MAN when it comes to fat loss.  If there’s one guy to follow if you want to learn about fat loss, it should be Alwyn.  His facilities in California train hundreds of clients which means he has more hard data than any University study ever has about fat loss.

Alwyn’s also a 2x cancer survivor, great writer and really into helping people improve their lives in all areas.  If Alwyn didnt pitch so many products in every post, he’d be rated even higher…

#12 – Ross Enamait

Who hasn’t seen the killer videos of Ross on YouTube?  Ross writes training articles for fighters from all areas including wrestling, MMA and boxing.  In addition to being a great guy, he’s a hell of a trainer.

Ross’s site is full of great content including sandbag training, wheelbarrows and anything else you can think of.

#11 – Nate Green

Nate is a young, up and coming trainer who just put out a new book that deals with working out and picking up girls (sounds good to me!)

Nate’s training regimen is more on the bodybuilding side, but he still uses very functional movements like front squats, deadlifts and pullups.  On top of that, he’s a pretty cool guy too!

#10 – Stronglifts

Stronglifts is a blog written by Mehdi specifically about strength training.  They have a great archive of posts and the forum is still active every day.

Hopefully Mehdi jumps back on the blogging bandwagon soon, he hasn’t posted in a while.

#9 – The Diesel Crew

The Diesel Crew are some of the toughest guy’s you’ll ever see.  They do a lot of strongman, powerlifting and grip training for athletes.  They have pretty cool videos on their site as well as good content on the blog that gets updated pretty often.

#8 – Mark’s Daily Apple

Written by Mark Sisson, Mark’s Daily Apple is an awesome nutrition blog that focuses mainly on living a life like our ancestors did.  This means eat real food, lift heavy things, run, play and get lots of sleep.

Can’t say I can argue with that…

#7Zach Even Esh

The wild man Zach Even Esh has a great blog that he regularly posts on.  Zach is known for his underground strength training style.  A lot of his training methods are similar to ours at Gym Junkies.

Zach also posts videos on his blog usually 4-5 times per week, so you can see some great workout videos from him.  As a bonus you get to hear his REAL Jersey accent everyday haha!

#6 – The Skinny Confidential

A fitness and lifestyle blog by Lauryn Evarts. With tons of healthy recipes and tips!

#5 – CrossFit

Should I have put Cultfit?  Ahh J/K… The main page at Crossfit has a daily workout, along with comments posted by cross fitters from all over the nation.  The workouts are tough, Ill warn you ahead of time

#4 – Fat Man Unleashed

Fat Man is a blog written by Israel Lagares.  He’s on a quest to lose weight and get in shape through strength training and circuit workouts.

His blog has some great tips for losing weight and you can follow along with his weight loss journey each and every week.

#3 – Straight to the Bar

Straight to the bar is a fitness blog by Scott Bird that mostly posts videos about functional training workouts.  He also finds some of the best videos from around the web and posts them daily.  Some great content going on at Straight to the Bar.

#2 – Again Faster

Again Faster and it’s writer Jon Gilson have put together a great blog.  Jon is a Crossfit affiliate and makes posts on functional training that really relate to life in all sorts of ways.

On top of that Jon has a knack for writing and he’s a great coach.

#1 – Steve Maxwell

Steve Maxwell might be in a world all by himself.  Im not sure of his exact age, but I think he’s about 54 or so and somehow still has a body that is just flat out ripped.

Steve is a BJJ practitioner and one of the best strength coaches out there.  His blog has some awesome posts about odd object training like kettlebells, sledgehammer and a few other fun things.  He doesn’t post very often, but when he does its top notch.

What do you think?

Did I leave off a great blog?  Is this the greatest list ever made? Or did I snub your blog from the rankings?  Let me hear your comments.  Come on I’m a big boy, I can take it !

    I read one interesting book “Magical Eating” written by Emily candler which gives information about how to make healthy food selections while dining in foreign cities. We think some foods are healthy but I figured out they have high calories in the ingredients. I am sure that you will find it useful if you go through this

    This is a great blog, but I’d have to disagree on your choice of top 20 fitness blogs. I think Zuzana of Bodyrock TV is the best; she has been my inspiration to start my own blog

    Hey Vic,
    First off I need to thank you. As extreme as it sounds, if it weren’t for this specific post I think my life would be quite different. I’ve recently become completely enthralled and enveloped in fitness and nutrition and a few months ago my girlfriend suggested that I start my own blog. I was very uncertain at first and I actually came here for a few ideas. I found Nate Green’s blog and have been following it regularly ever since. This lead to the growth and development of my blog which you can check out @
    My question to you as how do you recommend that I go about getting myself in the ranks of the above mentioned blogs listed above. I know I’m just starting out, but I have so much passion and I will strive to get it up there in time. Any suggestions on how to expedite the process?
    Thanks again,
    Noah Ohlsen
