So it seems that everyone and their step-aunt has a blog these days. And the prevalence of fitness blogs is on the rise. The key is to find the fitness blogs with the most valid information (was it written by a 16-year old who is taking phys ed this semester?); a positive message (is it a motivational “fitspo” blog or a horrible “thinspo” blog?) and relevancy to YOU (is it a CrossFit blog and you’re a Zumba-addict?)
