I am always on the hunt for fitspiration and I turn to some of my favorite websites when I need some motivation to push harder or eat healthier. Here’s my top 15 favorite fitness and wellness websites of all time!
Wanderlust not only created a great book and a great festival, but have a rockin’ website as well. Their website is my go to for anything to do with meditation and yoga inspiration. They also have a bunch of fun yoga videos and videos on other topics that are free and well-made. Practically unheard of!
Yoga by Candace is also another great yoga-centric website I love to visit for tips on how to do yoga poses correctly. You’ll come for the yoga information and stay for Candace’s beautiful spirit! She is a hero of mine as her story of dealing with a chronic illness is very similar to mine and I actually had the opportunity to guest blog for her here.
Well + Good can be a little woo woo at times, but they have some great content and have a lot of tips and tricks for the modern, working gal. I love checking out their site for the newest health trends and fads and seeing which ones I might like to try out. You know I’m all about experiencing new wellness experiences or foods. They concentrate really heavily on showing that each personal will have their own health journey and nothing is one size fits all. They also focus on gut health and write quite frequently about the microbiome. If you check out my article on the microbiome here, you’ll see why that’s so important!
Clean Eating Magazine is definitely making this list because I’m a strong believer that in order to achieve your fitness and wellness goals what you put in your body is just as important as physical exercise. Clean Eating Mag makes it easy with their delicious and easy recipes and their suggestions for making your home space cleaner as well. I support my physical fitness by putting in foods that will help nourish me and fuel my activities. Moderation is key. You don’t need to avoid doughnuts or milkshakes, just make sure that 80% of the time you’re eating foods that are good for you and feel free to splurge the other 20%.
I feel fully that you can reach untapped potential by looking inward and Mindbodygreen is a great place to learn how to! Just like Well + Good, they strike a great balance between fitness centered articles and ones about internal health with some meditation articles thrown in. I always check them out if I want some new information or workout ideas.
I adore Yogi Approved because they have information for beginners all the way to advanced yogis. There’s something for everyone and a great place to learn how to take your practice further. I believe that yoga is more than just a workout, for me it is a spiritual endeavor and I love how Yogi Approved combines the fitness aspect and the spiritual one. They show you how you can bring what you do on the mat into your everyday life. If you view yoga as a lifestyle and not just a way to sweat than this is the site for you!
Julie from Paleomg is one of my favorite humans. She’s always trying out new workouts and talking about them and her casual style of writing makes all of her posts feel like a glimpse into her life. She has a broad range of posts that show her from dolled up to just coming from the gym. Her website feels like visiting an old friend instead of all those glammed up sites full of photos of girls “working out”, but their makeup is impeccable. Her true strength is her amazing recipes. She’s paleoish, meaning that she typically eats paleo, but will incorporate some non-paleo foods into her diet once in awhile. Just like me! Check her out and you’ll see why I love her!
I love weightlifting and strength training so you know that Bodybuilding is going to be on my list. They have phenomenal resources for teaching you how to lift correctly and giving you workout plans broken down for free. It also has a long-standing community who can answer tons of your questions if you’re new to the scene if you don’t find the answer in the wealth of information already provided.
I don’t eat a strictly plant-based diet, but I try and eat as many different foods as possible to nourish my body and Oh She Glows makes that delicious and easy! Gone are the days of forcing plain brussel sprouts down your gullet. Every single one of her recipes I’ve tried are scrumptious!
Healthy Glow is a health-conscious gal’s best friend. It has phenomenal recipes and great workout ideas. Just when I think I’ve run out of self-help books to read or run through all the clean products out there Healthy Glow is there to prove me wrong. The site has an easy readability that reminds me of reading my favorite magazine without tons of ads! Win win!
Fit Bottomed Girls is run by girls for girls and it pays off. It has a homey feel to it and the writing style is very casual making this feel less like a website trying to make money and more like it’s trying to really help you be the best you that you can be. I love reading about the writer’s fitness adventures all over the world and live vicariously through their travels. I also get the deets on new workouts before I try them out which makes me feel like I’m in a secret club.
Simply Taralynn is a lifestyle blog, but she frequently writes about her workouts and health meal ideas. She’s all about balance and she practices what she preaches. I’ve been following her since I was in college and she has truly blossomed into a great blogger. Her recipes are amazing and seeing her learn what works best for her when creating a lifestyle has always inspired me to find my own specific healthy lifestyle that’s geared just for me. She seems like a genuinely loving person and she really displays appreciation for her followers. She has got me into trying circuit training more often and pushing myself to try out new workouts. You’ll love her southern charm!
I was blessed with actually being able to meet Emily Schromm in person and she’s just as sweet in reality is she is on her blog and instafeed. She’s a crossfitter who is crazy strong and all about female empowerment. She runs challenges that are great for beginners to seasoned professionals and her blog always has amazing information for those who are more interested in the nerdy science behind foods and exercising. I love kinesiology and how foods are broken down so I could spend hours getting lost on Emfit learning new information!
Amanda doesn’t blog much anymore, but the posts she does have our priceless. Follow her on her journey from cardio bunny to weight lifter as she gets ready for her first bikini competition. As a person in the health field she went into this very factually and wanted to show you could compete without starving yourself. Her blog is so very important for those who are looking to compete in any arena and you can always count on her to keep it real. I loved reading about all of her prep work and seeing the behind the scenes pics of her getting ready for her first competition.
Most of all, Buddha Belly is my own personal inspiration because above all else you should be inspiring yourself. Sharing my personal life and providing content for others was something I never thought I could do, but it was only myself getting in my own way. Just like I never thought I would ever go from 200 lbs to the 130 lbs that I stick around right now. The only person editing your story is you. Make your life a book that others want to pick up and never put down!
Definitely let me know of any fitness and wellness websites that should be added to the list below!
