It’s been a very long while since I compiled a list of Youtube fitness channels. Since then many more fitness gurus joined Youtube and I’ve been receiving a steady flow of suggestions from my readers of who I should include in my list.
As you look and explore all the channels below you will find mixture of fitness related content. Some Youtube fitness channels contain only workouts, some have recipes and some fitness gurus will even share motivational content. I’ve included fitness channels for women, fitness channels for men and many that will appeal to both sexes. If you have a favorite Youtube fitness channel or a fitness guru you follow that’s not on this list please do share in the comments below.

- Beth Andrews
Beth’s channel is a rarity and has a lot of potential. Reminds me of many other ways other Youtube fitness experts started out, raw and uncut. Beth holds an RKC certification and posts videos consisting of kettlebell workouts with real kettlebells, not those soft tiny little ones made for a nursery room.

One of very active Youtube fitness channels I subscribe to. There’s alot of self-analysis of workouts and tips for viewers, product reviews and lifestyle banter. What I really like about his channel are the guest Youtubers he brings on. It’s a good way to discover other fitness gurus, enthusiasts and amateur athletes with Youtube channels.
