Fitness blogs have become an essential component for many people who want to train at their own pace, keep the motivation high and overall improving their life.
In fact, 70% of fitness enthusiasts would rather learn about a workout from someone else, like a gym buddy, than by themselves. Another research from Bodybuilding.com finds that 73% of people with new year resolutions give up within 6 months.
