Hello everyone. Today’s article is a guest post from Hadley Jolley.
Keeping fit and healthy is a lifelong process. Unfortunately, not everybody does so or even knows how—and those who do often struggle to maintain the motivation to put in the energy to remain fit.
However, blogs can help, both by providing general tips and tricks for exercising and time management, and also by providing inspiration for continued effort. The blogs listed below provide a wide range of help, including inspiration, tips, and the latest scientific findings about fitness.
1) Sussex Boot Camps Blog:- Run by two British personal trainers, this blog dovetails with the real-world boot camps the two writers run. It mostly focuses on general exercise and motivation tips.
2) Trying Fitness:- This blog’s tagline is “Because you’ve tried everything else”, and provides general tips about fitness, particularly for people who are not hard-core athletes. However, it also has interviews with pro athletes and links to free ebooks on fitness.
3) Weak Fitness:- Most posts on the Weak Fitness blog are Fitness tips—short ideas and facts about getting fit, especially for people who are just starting out. Their tips include what kinds of clothing to wear and the differences between different types of home exercise equipment.
