The world of fitness is a big and sometimes scary one. From gyms to trainers to diets and workout plans, it seems wherever you turn some “guru” is offering to share their secrets with you.
How is a well-meaning fresh entrant to the world of fitness to differentiate between what is legitimate advice and what is not?
Well, thankfully for you, the editorial teem here at FOOPs has broken down some of the most authoritative sources on all aspects of fitness. There are hundreds of great personalities. The video below describes just a few of them:
But we’re not all about mega-stars. Many of the experts in the video above are more corporations than they are teachers.
After considerable thought and voting from the writers, we have narrowed down our list to three of the most important online fitness presences you should be following.
Each figure/brand brings uniquely constructive insight into various aspects of fitness and healthy living. We apologize if you already know these websites, and if you don’t, we are excited to introduce them to you today!
Let’s begin shall we!
Pullup Professors (http://pullupprofessors.com/)
The “Profs” as they are sometimes called on social media have been in the game for quite a while, even if their latest version of their website looks brand new. The Profs has been advising people on how to build muscle and stay lean without having to buy gym memberships.
That’s right, for years on select fitness forums, like Bodybuilding.com and Reddit, the Pullup Professors have been sharing their secrets, largely based in the world of calisthenics, with anyone eager to listen.
The pull-up professors have articles on a wide range of topics, from home gym equipment reviews to exercise guides and anatomy lessons. We highly recommend anyone looking to get fit on a budget check them out.
Elliott Hulse (http://elliotthulse.com/)
Elliott Hulse might as well be called “Elliott Hulk”. The dude is a mammoth within the fitness community and has been doing “his thang” on Youtube for over ten years now.
Elliott is a wholisitc practitioner of “strength training”. His workouts combine elements borrowed from power lifting, weight lifting and bodybuilding, resulting in brutally exhausting yet effective workout plans.
Check out Elliott’s videos online, even if you aren’t looking to become the next Arnold, you are sure to find a subject that connects to you and to which Elliott shares his experiences form the heart.
Scooby’s Workshop (http://scoobysworkshop.com/)
Scooby has been around for decades, even though he doesn’t look like it. Scooby started with a simple blog and forum as well as a Youtube channel where much like The Pull-up Professors, he shared mostly workout-at-home advice and nutrition tips.
Scooby is unique in that he doesn’t “over-hype” things like many fitness celebrities seem to do these days. His instructions are always from years of personal experience and the way he communicates his fitness themes are simple, practical and down-to-earth. Scooby is one of the most likeable personalities in the fitness space.
Another unique thing about Scooby’s website and videos is his emphasis on home training and how effective it can be. You don’t always need a big gym membership to build solid slabs of muscle and Scooby is living proof of that, the man is jacked!
There you have it. There are hundreds of thousands of “voices” in the fitness space but we feel the three mentioned above are quite special in not just the content they provide but in who they are as people.
The above mentioned individuals all truly seem to be like great human beings with a strong desire to share their knowledge with the world and that is something FOOPS will always respect.
