Resources for Every Fitness Entrepreneur

By Becca Chiaravalle

The world of fitness is vast and ever-growing. Trends come and go, and it can be challenging to know what is for real and what is simply just a trend. As a fitness entrepreneur, influencer, or coach, it’s important to keep up so you can provide accurate information to those who are depending on you for information.

We see the versatility and innovation with different coaches and owners on the SpaceTogether platform, and in turn, we have been tuning into what resources can help them grow. We also know how important it is to keep up so you can grow your business, so we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite podcasts, youtube channels, and blogs to help you keep up with the trends.

If this is you as a coach, then definitely check him out.

3. The last is specific to their channel, TED. You’ve probably heard of TED and the hundreds of talks that have been put out into the world ranging a high number of subjects. Their talks specific to fitness are interesting and supported by a lot of evidence, and there are a couple that we recommend.

  • Sandra Aamodt: Why dieting doesn’t usually work

  • Mick Cornett: How and obese town lost a million pounds

These two are fantastic for information and motivation! For more specific videos, browse the TED channel.

Blogs

We’ve got three blogs here that we think could be beneficial for anyone trying to start, run, or grow their fitness business, ranging from the financial side to the day to day tasks.

  • Trainerize: This has a ton of great blogs specific to the business side.

  • My Fitness Pal: Sure, this one seems a little arbitrary, but if you’re at all focusing on nutrition, this one has a lot of great blogs pertaining to nutrition advice, tips, and recipes, as well as being one of the most popular calorie/macronutrient counters.

  • Fitness Pain Free: Though this is specific to fitness rehabilitation and preventative care, this is important for anyone in the fitness world because injuries happen every single day to just about anyone.
