TOP 30 Best Fitness Youtubers
It seems like these days everyone has a Youtube fitness channel. A lot of these guys make a significant income off of making Youtube videos. With so many to watch, how do you know which ones are worth your time and provide entertaining and knowledgable information? You don’t want to watch someone who speaks in a monotone voice or has no personality. You also don’t want to watch someone who tells you nothing but broscience. So we compiled our list of best fitness Youtubers.
Make sure you subscribe to their channels to keep up with their latest stuff. These people have made the list because they don’t put themselves first. They understand that the reason they make Youtube videos is to help other people achieve their ideal physique.
Remember that each channel may offer different opinions on training and nutrition so don’t necessarily believe everything they say.
Now before you get upset because one of your favorite channels isn’t on the list, remember that we did not base this list on the number of subscribers although it did play a big factor. Even if your favorite youtube channel has over 500k subscribers, if they only put out videos every couple of months then they were not included. We evaluated each channel based on these criteria:
- Entertainment-Do they make fitness fun? Are their videos funny?
- Information-What kind of expertise do they have? How motivational are they?
- Personality-Is this someone who seems like they would be a cool person if you met them?
- Consistency-How often do they put out videos? Do they consistently put out quality material?
- Popularity-Which channels do our viewers think are the best? How many subscribers do they have?
