Top 10 Filipino Fitness Bloggers to Follow in 2016


What do you do when you’re struggling for fitness inspiration? You go on Instagram and search for the following hashtags, correct? #fitness #workout #fitfam #justdoit #fitspiration #beachbody #abs and the lists go on… But what about for people who wants more information rather than ogling at ripped bodies? These blogs got you covered. I compiled a list of top fitness bloggers in the Philippines (in my opinion of course), they have fantastic fitness content on the web and they will inspire you to be a healthier you.

Please note that these lists are not in order so don’t mind the numbers, it’s just a guide so you know where you’re at when reading the list. I included a short info about them, their social media accounts, and one article that I like that is worth reading.
