As a blogger, I not only write, but also read a lot of other fitness blogs. In the course of time, a relatively long list of ( over 350 ) fitness blogs has emerged, which I visit more or less regularly. In this article I would like to introduce you to a selection of what I believe to be the best German-speaking fitness blogs.
The following fitness blogs are all blogs that I myself like to visit and which I can recommend to you. If you want to find out more about fitness topics or just want to read a few fresh articles about sport and fitness every now and then, you’ve come to the right place.
So if you have read all the articles on the topics that interest you here on Fitvolution and would like to get some impressions from other fitness bloggers, then this list is just right for you. I also update the list every few months, so please come back again.
Update 2020: With the new update, some new fitness blogs have been added and some others unfortunately no longer made it onto the list (mostly due to inactivity). This year I mainly sorted out a few blogs that primarily run a podcast. You can find these (almost all) in my article about the best sports and fitness podcasts .
So that you can find what you are looking for faster in the large number of fitness blogs, I have divided the pages into categories. Use the following links to jump directly to the blog category that interests you most:
Even if you are primarily interested in one category, I would still recommend that you take a look at the others. To think outside the box from time to time can always be interesting and useful.
By the way, the order in the list is absolutely arbitrary and I have not yet ranked the 25 best fitness blogs of 2020 among each other. All of the following 25 fitness blogs are absolutely worth reading if the topic interests you.
The best general fitness blogs
To begin with, I want to start by introducing the all-rounders among fitness blogs. These blogs deal with various fitness topics. They all have one focus, but are relatively broad in terms of content. Everyone interested in fitness can find something suitable on these pages.
Yes, this is a fitness blog too. So if you landed here via Google search and don’t know our blog yet, then definitely take a look around here. Fitvolution is the fitness blog for busy people. Here we have made it our business to help you optimize your training and get your diet under control with little expenditure of time. The 80/20 principle is paramount and I attach great importance to showing you on each topic the things that really bring you closer to your goals.
Regardless of whether you build muscle mass as effectively as possible, lose weight and define your muscles or change your habits and just get fit would like to find a suitable article here. Do you want something about self-motivation , really useful supplements or other useful fitness accessories learn? Then you have come to the right place. Even if you’re just looking for a cool one cool fitness gift for a friend.
2) Marathon fitness
Marathonfitness is one of my all-time favorite blogs and a real top dog in the scene. Mark writes about all kinds of fitness topics on his blog. His articles are very extensive and well written. Articles How Can You Targeted Reduce Belly Fat? and Why slim women lift heavy weights provide valuable information to support you in your training.
Helping his readers stay tuned and not give up is Mark’s primary concern. For this, he sometimes uses a bit more unusual approaches and refers to Sigmund Freud or advises frequent travelers to workout on the plane with a wink. Mark also produces a very cool podcast to help you stay tuned on the go.
In addition, Mark has published a really good book with the title Looking Good Naked *, which I can only recommend if you want to get into an attractive (re) form effectively and sustainably. With the title LGN Powerküche * there is now also a suitable cookbook with 60 super-fast recipes.
On 4yourfitness, Pat writes about the benefits of bodyweight training. I’m also a big fan of training (preferably supplemented by a sling trainer ) with my own body weight and I regularly stop by Pat. For example, he always presents interesting exercise variants. For this reason he already has a guest article about the basic exercises in bodyweight training released. In addition to many training tips, the topics of motivation and sustainability also play an important role on Pat’s blog. The topic of nutrition is also not neglected here.
By the way, Pat recently published a really good e-book on bodyweight training. If you are interested in this topic, you should definitely take a look at Pat’s eBook on bodyweight training *.
4) Fitness experts
When fitness-experts started a few years ago, the blog was a real game changer. Dominik and Johannes have made it their business to put current scientific knowledge at the center of all content. They hit a nerve and became very successful in a short time. You’ve certainly helped bring more science to the fitness scene.
In my opinion, the blog has become a bit confusing lately and new articles don’t appear that often. It still serves me as a very good reference work on various fitness topics. So be sure to stop by there.
Dominik is no longer there and now runs drdotzauer.de. Johannes has taken over the blog, which he continues to run very successfully with a small team.
5) Fitness Agony
On Fitness Agony, Zimo writes about all kinds of fitness topics from what I think is a very approachable and personable perspective. Even if his texts should appeal to most people interested in sports, I would tend to assign him to the field of athletics – and some of his short texts even go almost in a philosophical direction. For example, he wrote about the plogging trend.
But you will also find a lot of exciting articles here, for example about how you can recognize and overcome your limits or simply lose weight without being hungry.
6) Love to be fit
The first woman on this list is the good Steph with her blog Love to be fit. On her blog, Steph mainly writes about motivation and functional training at home and posts delicious recipes and tips that should help you lose weight (especially by counting calories). Steph has also been a mother for some time, which has changed her focus a bit. In addition to mother topics, it has also thematically developed into the area of personality development.
There is still a lot on the blog that could potentially be exciting for anyone interested in fitness.
7) Got Big
Got Big by Thomas Bluhm is an absolute veteran among fitness blogs. It continues to be one of the scene’s blogs with the greatest reach. His main focus is clearly on building muscle and how you can get a six-pack. He has also developed a successful program of his own to help you get a six-pack. Click here * if you are interested.
In the meantime, Thomas also writes other interesting articles that are a little further away from his main focus. Interesting examples that I have never read anywhere are foods for intestinal problems or how to guarantee that you will never have a hangover again. In addition, he is currently regularly bringing other authors to his blog in order to be able to regularly ensure new content.
8) Crazy about running
Paula is a slogan in the fitness blogger scene. Some time ago I put them in the running blogger category. However, Paula has now set herself a bit broader and now deals a lot on her blog with the topics of nutrition, strength training as well as self-love and mindfulness. At the same time, she is not afraid to openly deal with special women’s issues, such as cravings before the period, with her refreshing manner.
The articles on her blog Laufverarrt always have their own, very personal touch. She doesn’t mince her words and even speaks out when something doesn’t suit her in the blogger scene. Some of you may be offended by her clear words, but I think her blog is very readable because of her nature.
9) Sabrina Wolf
Sabrina is a yoga teacher and personal trainer. On her blog sabrinawolf.de she deals with various fitness and lifestyle topics. Of course, yoga always plays an important role. In addition to the more classic fitness topics, it also deals with dealing with personal problems. There are often unrecognized connections here. The promotion of self-love and dealing with self-doubt, for example, are important topics in the entire scene (officially especially among women) and are also discussed here.
The best fitness blogs about running
Running is the ultimate sport for everyone. There are numerous reasons why you should go running. You can find a selection in my article on why you should go running. A lot of blogs are specifically about running. I would like to briefly introduce you to the ones I visit regularly.
10) Endurance blog – Finally more sport
Torsten has been running the endurance blog since 2015, which he first drew my attention to via a comment under this article. Since then I have stopped by him again and again. Torsten is a real role model for his readers. Not because he does sport for hours every day and has a real astral body, but because he manages to integrate his sport into his everyday life in a healthy way alongside a stressful job. To do exactly that, he also wants to help his readers and he does it in a very authentic way.
I had previously classified Torsten in the general category because he used to be (and is) an enthusiastic cyclist. In the last few months, however, he has built his blog very much around running. It’s about stability training for runners or healthy nutrition for runners.
His free running course for beginners is also very popular with many beginners.
11) The endurance coaches
The endurance coaches are Hannah and Carsten. They share a lot of interesting running reports and personal experiences with their readers on their blog. In addition to running reports, they write about all kinds of interesting topics for runners, such as proper nutrition for a marathon. The topic of trail running is also regularly discussed. Since the two of them take part in such events from time to time, they have put together some tips for trail running beginners. This running discipline is becoming more and more popular and I’ve already tried it myself and even constantly climbed the Zugspitze .
On his blog Slowtwitch, Stephan regularly reports on the runs and triathlon competitions in which he has participated. There are also unusual competitions, which is why you can get some inspiration for your own competition calendar here. His reports about the Wall Race and the Inferno Triathlon, for example, made me think about participating.
Harlerunner is an old-school running blog whose articles I’ve been reading with pleasure for a number of years. Thomas mainly reports on runs and other events in which he participates, takes his readers with him to his training and gives tips on the right equipment, which he also regularly tests for the blog.
Thomas is also a real nerd when it comes to training planning and technical support for his training. He likes to report particularly comprehensively on these topics. For example, I found his article on training control with heart rate variability very interesting.
Fitness blogs for triathletes
If running is too boring for you, you can run an obstacle course, like the Tough Mudder, or venture into a combined competition like the triathlon. The triathlon is the next logical step for many runners. But cyclists and swimmers also often dare to take the step to this combination sport. The following triathlon blogs are on my reading list and should also be on yours if the topic interests you.
14) Ice cubes in the shoe
For several years now, I have been reading the blog Eiswürfel im Schuh (Triathlete Din) with great pleasure. On the blog you can always find great tips about triathlon and other sporting topics. There are also really good things for beginners, such as tips on swimming, the problem discipline of most beginners. Her article on endurance sports and asthma also helped me a lot personally. Just have a look.
15) Tri It Fit
Tri It Fit by Lotta and Schorsch is not just a triathlon blog. Bodyweight training and the paleo diet also play an important role here. The focus, however, is on the high-quality articles with valuable tips and experience reports on the Triatholn sport. Especially for swimming training (which is always difficult for me) you will find some good tips here. If you want to become a triathlete, then you’ve come to the right place. Lately they have also published a few delicious recipes that they have specially adapted to the needs of triathletes.
I have also published an article on Tri It Fit with the title The five easiest ways to train effectively while traveling.
Kathi, Max and Isa run a very cool triathlon blog together with Shuru.de, which is aimed primarily at beginners. Above all, you deal with important basic topics of triathlon training, such as the question of why technique training is so important in triathlon. In addition, they always write interesting testimonials from their own competitions.
17) Pushing Limits
Pushing Limits is a triathlon blog specifically aimed at ambitious triathletes. “Always go to the limit, overcome it and redefine it” is the motto because that’s exactly what the authors (and there are some of them) want to help their readers. In addition to training tips and equipment tests, you will also find all kinds of reports from running and of course triathlon events here. Other sports topics are also served, but the focus here is clearly on the topic of triathlon. There is now also a podcast for the blog.
Fitness blogs for bodybuilders
Do you like to move heavy weights and your main goal is to build muscle or optimize your appearance? Then fitness blogs with a focus on bodybuilding topics might be the most interesting for you. Here is my selection of blogs worth reading for bodybuilders and those who want to become one.
If your goal is to build muscle, I can also suggest that you take a look at my book Muscle Building Basics , the first “No Bullshit” guide for effective muscle building
18) Aesir Sports
The bodybuilding blog Aesir Sports is also a real veteran in the scene. As a full-time blogger, Damian has reacted to the changes in the market by now producing or having a large part of his content produced exclusively for his online magazine Metal Health RX. On the one hand, that’s a shame because you can no longer get the valuable information for free, but on the other hand I can understand him. He was simply looking for opportunities for himself to continue doing what he loves and to live from it.
Nevertheless, you can still find interesting articles on unusual topics on the free blog, which should be exciting for those interested in bodybuilding. Especially the somewhat more unusual topics that you don’t normally find, such as building muscle for the stomach or dealing with the thermal effect of food, I think a visit to the blog is absolutely worth it.
19) Fit`n Sexy
On the Fit`n Sexy blog, the successful bodybuilder (including German middleweight champion of the GNBF 2012) and personal trainer Benny Braun writes about all the topics that are important for a natural bodybuilder. In addition to classic training and nutrition topics, Benny also dares to tackle more provocative titles such as losing weight through masturbation and is also open to the dangers of steroid consumption.
20) Aesthetics blog
Peter’s Aesthetics blog has long been a big name in the fitness blogger scene. Two years ago I took Peter off the list because he hadn’t been that active for a while. However, that has changed again in the last year and there are regular high-quality articles to read on the blog. Anyone interested in bodybuilding and body shaping is definitely worth a visit here.
21) Dream team fitness
Julius Ise, who is known as a fitness influencer, bodybuilder and fitness model, runs his fitness blog with DreamteamFitness. I used to love reading his bodybuilding competition diary. Today he writes here on all kinds of topics in the fitness area. In between, you can find a lot of delicious and fitness-friendly recipes here.
22) Simply Progress
On his bodybuilding blog Simply Progress, Philipp helps his readers to optimize their health and aesthetics. For this he writes a detailed article every couple of weeks that deals with an exciting fitness topic. Be it the correct execution of an exercise, a special motivation technique or just a few tips for optimizing the mass phase.
23) Fitme Licious
On her blog Fitme-Licious, Melanie, whom I have known personally since the first FiBloKo, primarily writes about sustainable, healthy nutrition. You can find a ton of cool recipes on her blog that you can hardly find anywhere else. The nutritional scientist and mother also takes her readers with her again and again to her nutritional experiments. Particularly interesting for mothers who want to get fitter and want to eat better and everyone who likes to be inspired by cool recipes.
24) Spring onion
Stef runs the spring onion blog, which focuses on the simplest possible diet that is fit for fitness. Above all, she always posts a lot of interesting recipes that you won’t find everywhere else. For example, I found your healthy interpretation of fast food recipes very interesting. If you’re looking for inspiration for recipes and fitness snacks, you’ve come to the right place.
25) Julie feels good
Julie feels good is a blog that deals with healthy eating in general and clean eating in particular. There are also a lot of great recipes here. Julie also writes about weight loss problems, such as food cravings, and how to manage them. Meanwhile she deals more and more with the topic of self-love on the blog. Here, too, the target group is clearly women. However, I also always find something valuable for me in your articles.
That was it, my selection of fitness blogs that you should read or at least look at in 2020. I hope you enjoyed my selection of fitness blogs and found one or two new blogs that are of interest to you.
