7 Legit Fitness Blogs to Follow to Get in Shape for Summer

There's a swarm of fitness bloggers out there on the vast internet who armed and ready to share their workout tips, personal journeys and healthy recipes. But for some, uttering the very title of "fitness blogger" conjures up unattainable and somewhat abstract #FitnessGoals, detoxes and mirror selfies in workout clothes.

In January 2015, Vogue called wellness the new "luxury lifestyle." Thankfully, there are still fitness bloggers who are more relatable, providing health insight and inspiration — aka fitspo — that's easier to work into our lifestyle.
