If you’ve scoured the web lately, you know that the fitness industry is having a huge impact on fashion. Between bloggers switching up their daily outfits from high-end labels to Nike Roshes and graphic sweatshirts; luxury retailers like Net-a-Porter introducing entire fitness categories, or fashion-savvy girls zipping around town in workout gear, it’s obvious people are starting to take their health more seriously. So it makes sense that in the world of exercise—just like fashion and beauty—there are more than a few fitness blogs out there.
These in-shape women running our favorite fitness blogs are experts on what to wear, eat and do in order to lose weight, stay healthy and be the best version of you. The coolest part about these gals? Most of them have been in our shoes themselves—surfing the web looking for inspiration, tips and advice—so it’s nice to see a real-girl angle to fitness, as opposed to always relying on trainers and “experts.”
To that end, we’ve rounded up some of our go-to health and fitness blogs when we’re looking for the latest fitness trends, healthy recipes and activewear.
