I'm sure a lot of you have heard of this one, but if not, this is like the Temptalia for health and fitness. The site features several new posts each day and offers a wide variety of content. You'll find recipes, health articles, exercise routines, gear reviews, and more. I find myself browsing through this site several times a week... I love it!
For any of you who like to run, walk or bike, MapMyRUN is amazing! You create a free account, then can chart your run on an interactive map. Look up your address (or starting point), then click points along the roads to create a connect-the-dot type route. The site calculates the distance as you go, so you can find the perfect route before you even leave your house. I love this because it allows me to try a new route and know exactly how far it will be. It's great when you're on vacation and don't know an area well.
There is also a MapMyRUN app on the iPhone that works as a GPS tracker! If you keep it in your pocket, it will chart your distance, time, etc. as you run, just like a GPS watch would (though I think the accuracy is a bit lower).
I found out about the Tone It Up girls because they are fellow YouTubers (youtube.com/toneitupcom). Karena and Katrina are certified nutritionists with tons of tips for health and fitness. Their site is full of motivational posts about diet and exercise, and they have even created their own unique diet and exercise program (which is available for purchase online).
What I love most about these girls is that they are real. I feel like a lot of fitness sites offer posts about things an average person wouldn't do (complicated recipes, odd exercises). The content on Tone It Up is relateable. Whether the girls are weighing in on their favorite health bars, spreading a motivational message, or showing you a new (uncomplicated) way to break a sweat, the content is useful! I also like that they use YouTube as a platform to upload videos actually showing and explaining the exercises.
