I have searched for helpful fitness sites for personal use over the last 15 years. Here is a list of the most helpful websites regarding health, fitness, and overall well being. I will give a brief explanation of each.
This is the biggest staple site for fitness of all kinds. It started as a bodybuilding site when it first launched but has since become the internet’s largest diet and fitness resource. They have tons of articles on diet tips and programs to follow, depending on your goal. I highly suggest checking these sites out for well rounded approach to health and fitness. They also are the largest retailer of supplements online. I buy most of my supplements from them.
