UPDATE: I’ve updated this list that includes 50 amazing Youtube Fitness Channels <- check it out, let me know who else should be on the list.
If you’re bored of your current routine, or not producing results, or simply need an injection of motivation here’s an awesome list of fitness gurus on YouTube you should subscribe to. As a personal trainer myself, it is imperative for me to keep my skills updated and stay on top of new techniques, industry trends and all the science behind it. I subscribe to these fitness experts not only to learn something new half way around the world, but also to get inspired.
John Kiefer is the most recent entry to my Fitness Gurus on Youtube list. Kiefer provides great advice, backed by research, on nutrition and training and how to optimize it for maximum results. I recently discovered Kiefer’s blog Dangerously Hardcore and had to add to my list of Top Fitness Blogs That Challenge the Status Quo.
Jeff Cavaliere puts together very tough and challenging workouts. Try one of his Iron Man routines. You’ll be panting like a dog in no time.
Bret Contreras also known as the Glutes guy. Bret will show you how to develop strong sexy legs, and a nice butt. He’s not flashy nor does he make any bold and unapproven claims. His articles and videos are well researched and he takes his time to explain why something works and why it’s effective.
Scooby Werkstatt is a living encyclopedia of fitness. Just check out his YouTube channel or visit his site Scooby’s Workshop and you’ll get a grasp of knowledge this man has. He’ll explain to the absolutely detail why he does something, what works and what doesn’t. I really liked his philosophy and realistic approach to bodybuilding.
Zuzana Light’s workouts are brutal. The best part is that you hardly ever need any gear to perform one of her routines. Quick update: As you’ve noticed, Zuzana is no longer part of BodyRock.tv, however the new team members continue on delivering intense home workouts. Try one of their HIIT routines
Peter Carvell offers killer ab and cardio workouts. He really takes the time to share little tidbits on what would make the exercises even more effective.
Lee Hayward’s workouts and exercises aren’t for the average user. They are targeted at a serious bodybuilder. Subscribing to Lee’s channell is still worth it because he delivers great and honest advice on how to maximize muscle growth.
Alycia Kluegl’s workouts are just as challenging. Besides offering routines that will get you nicely toned, she has a number of great uploads covering nutrition.
Scott Herman gets right to the point. He jumps right into the routine or exercise and offers great tips on how to achieve nice looking physique along the way.
Elliott Hulse was suggested by one of my readers in the comments. He’s got a lot of really good training videos. They’re aimed typically at those looking to build brute strength and put on size. He also answers viewer’s questions in his videos and delivers information free of clutter and fluff.
Vince Del Monte’s videos are filled with great fitness tips and challenging workouts. Vince also delivers great advice on life outside the gym. Although some of his results are questionable, he still provides some good advice.
I hope to put myself on my own list this summer when I start sharing my own workouts. If you think I missed someone, let me know and I’ll check them out. Perhaps they’ll be on the updated version of this list.
