Fitness bloggers require a certain style when creating a blog, and there are many different reasons to begin fitness blogging. Starting a fitness blog in 2019 is challenging because there is more competition (more people creating fitness blogs), but it is also simple because you can have access to post on your blog form anywhere in the world.
Starting a Fitness Blog in 2019
Aside from people who are considering to start a fitness blog solely to make money from advertisements, the main reason people to motivate and interest potential customers and readers. Check out these simple tips that can help you begin a successful fitness blog in 2019!
Let Your Passion Shine Through
When you begin a fitness blog, you need to always showcase your love of fitness to your readers. Not only does your passion need to be present in your blog, but you need to remind yourself often of why you are doing this.
It is not always easy to have a blog; it can be time consuming and difficult. However, it is much easier to keep going when you remember what it is all for.
If you have a passion for helping people lose weight, blog about simple and effective weight loss tips. If you like to try to help people build muscle and develop an aesthetic body, write about that!
Regardless, write about what you are passionate about- and not what you think is the best way to make money.
Don’t Over-Complicate Things
Use WordPress. It is a simple site that you should be able to figure out in no time. There are also a number of different templates available (although you have to pay for a few of them), so you don’t even have to worry about design. You are only responsible for content, which makes things much easier.
If you decide not to use WordPress for some reason, go on YouTube to find a tutorial that will help design your site.
After a few months or year of fitness blogging you can decide to use a paid theme and hire an expensive website developer, but at first you should concentrate on creating content that readers will love to read. After you have written quality articles for a few months, you can begin to focus on User Experience on your fitness blog.
Come Up with a Great Title
You have to draw readers into your blog, especially in the beginning, when no one has heard of you. But, how do you do that?
You come up with a great title! If you have something that people respond to, they are more likely to take a closer look at what you have to offer.
If you have a reputable name due to athletics or a certain accomplishment in the fitness industry, I suggest using your name as your brand. However, if you are relatively new and looking to establish yourself, use a blog title which illustrates your goal of the blog. After users begin to read your blog more often, they will begin to associate your blog title with useful fitness tips!
Seek Out Followers
There are so many things you can do to attract followers to your blog.
Make comments on other blogs that have something in common with yours, set up Facebook ads, get the word out about your blog on your social media sites, add likes to your blog, or e a guest blogger for someone else. Every little bit you do helps!
When I began this fitness blog I initially got a lot of attention off of Instagram. Although I don’t use Instagram as much anymore, I know it is still valuable when you are starting a fitness blog.
P.S. Please follow me on Instagram!
Another great way to promote your new fitness blog is to talk to people at your local gym about it. Whether you are giving diet advice or writing your Workout of the Day for others to see and use, the people you see at your local gym will probably be interested in what you ahve to say!
Don’t be afraid to ask people to checkout your new blog!
Add New Content Regularly
Most people don’t stick with their blogs, and they stop posting new content after 12 weeks or so. Let your readers know that you aren’t going anywhere.
Put up posts frequently!
Concluding Thoughts – How to Start a Fitness Blog

There are many ways to learn new fitness information for your blog, including taking courses and reading research studies and applying them to your own concepts.
