38 Great Health and Fitness Links

Get Fit!

Last month I wrote about the Forever Body Transformation program, and I still highly recommend it for people who want a fitness program that will guide them into a healthier lifestyle. 

That said, I know that not everyone wants to pay for a program, and others prefer to do things themselves without a set program. So, that is why I've created this list of great health and fitness sites.

For some of the sites I include a description of what to expect, but in most cases it's best to just go and have a look around.

I've broken down this list into categories that best describe what is offered by the sites. All of the sites in this list are either free, or provide great information for free.

High Intensity Interval Training

http://www.12minuteathlete.com/ - One of my favorite sites. Krista posts workouts three days a week, and writes good blog posts on off-days.
