Top 50 Calisthenics and Fitness Blogs - 2023

There are many blogs about calisthenics and fitness on the internet. Some of these blogs go to great lengths, while other blogs often only cover topics superficially. Since we ourselves are in the area sports and gymnastics equipment are active, we can't avoid reading fitness blogs and keeping ourselves up to date.

Consequently, we have created a list of our top 50 calisthenics and fitness blogs in 2022. We read these blogs regularly and find the commitment and the depth of the topics particularly impressive. This is not to say that other blogs are worse - by no means! We certainly don't know all the blogs that exist on these topics.

Nonetheless, we would like to give a special mention to these top 50. There is no placement or ranking. First place is just as worth reading as last place. Feel free to write your favorites in the comments!

Let's get started with our favorite blogs...

Aesthics Blog - Clothing Stations and more

On Peter's blog you can really find out everything about aesthetics and fitness. The topics of clothing, stations and equipment, gadgets, training plans and nutrition are all dealt with here. However, there is also a separate section called “Lifestyle & Motivation”.

In my opinion, the most interesting thing is the training plan configurator. After all, there are still many ignorant people who don't have a proper training plan and consequently, that's why most injuries happen.

In the Functional Training Blog you will find posts that you have never seen before. For example, the most recent article is about Japanese forest bathing. But not only such information and tips for a more balanced life can be found there, but also scientific contributions that help you enormously in training. Here I am thinking of the post called "Comparison of Single-Leg Training & Bilateral Training".

26 Fitness & Food Blog – the perfect combination of nutrition and sport

Fitness and Food Blog - Nutrition and Sport

Here it is announced right from the start that the blog serves more as an inspiration and should not be understood as a clear guide or law book. Regardless of the blog, I like the No Regrets Shop. However, this is not just about nutrition, but health in general.

For example, it is explained very precisely why lack of sleep makes you fat and how important healthy and restful sleep is. However, exciting topics such as collagen or the like are also dealt with.

Sneaker Love is predominantly an outdoor sport and running blog. However, you also get the associated topics such as nutrition, motivation and yoga. The great thing is that most of the pictures were taken by the photographer themselves and you can see the effort they put into it.

I would also like to highlight the fitness planner. This is free of charge and particularly extensive. Here you get a training plan, nutrition plan as well as relaxation mandalas and much more. The blog is definitely worth a visit.

Fitmedmary - Doctor Athlete and Blogger

Marie-Luise is a real role model when it comes to sports and professional life. She is a full-time doctor and still manages to train hard. The interesting thing about it is the very well-founded and scientific approach. As a doctor, she knows exactly what she is talking about and it shows.

For example, the article "Triathlon Olympic" deals with training control and other very important aspects. There is already a difference between an advanced and a professional. Marie-Luise is definitely a pro. If you want to read more of her - and I can only recommend that - you should definitely stop by her blog.

Of course, we personally liked the article “Calisthenics in self-experiment” best. I think the idea of ​​designing the gym blog like this is really successful. Here you can see that this is not only for self-expression, but really the reader is in the foreground.

38 – the all-rounder

Marvin's fitness blog

Marvin's blog is comparable in scope to Mirjam's fitness blog. He covers topics such as motivation, nutrition, fitness and bodybuilding and provides creative ideas on how to cook healthier and tastier.

Most of the fitness blogs that have been presented so far have had little to do with endurance and muscle building. However, this blog, which writes really extensively about the topics of fitness, muscle building and endurance, changes that. However, injuries are also discussed here.

It is very nice that you quickly recognize the professional competence here. It doesn't matter whether it's training methods for preparing for the season in football or contributions in the area of ​​motivation - sport has been around here for a long time.

A very personal blog is the blog of Flying Evi. She not only reports on personal experiences such as the cryosauna or the Leguano barefoot shoes, but also gives practical tips on the topics of self-love, yoga and regeneration.
