 Websites:

Fitness/Nutrition:
Precision Nutrition – hands-down my most recommended resource for nutrition and fitness. I’ve used their resources with numerous clients, and refer them here every day.
JillFit.com – her mindset posts, metabolic workouts and moderation tips will help you find a happy medium – no more dieting or extreme hours in the gym! Love this woman for her passion, insight, authenticity, and beauty that resonates both inside and out. My #1 role model.
Thrive with Jen Sinkler – What do you do for cardio? “Lift weights faster!” -Jen Sinkler’s words, not mine :). This woman is empowering, radiates sunbeams of brightness and like her brand represents, unapologetically strong.
Bret Contreras – The Glute Guy – nicknamed “The Glute Guy” for his invention of the hip thrust exercise (and transforming thousands of women’s bodies!), this guy takes a scientific-based approach, countless research studies directly related to exercise. Want a better backside? This is your one stop shop. Seriously.
Nia Shanks – Lift Like A Girl – this blog and podcast will make you feel inspired and empowered!
Girls Gone Strong – an amazing, supportive community of strong female fitness professionals sharing valuable knowledge about embracing your inner and outer strength, mostly through lifting.
NerdFitness.com – Practical yet simple enough for the average “nerd” – using milk cartons for rows was certainly original!
DareBee.com – Need to get in a workout but can’t find the time? Looking for a quick at-home ab workout? Print off one of DareBee’s and put it to use!

For Personal trainers/Industry Professionals:
The Personal Trainer Development Center
IDEA Fit

Life:
Actualized.org – Feeling stuck, not knowing your purpose or direction? Watch one of Leo’s videos.
Tim Ferriss – Four Hour Work Week Blog – Author of Four Hour Work Week, Body, AND Chef – what’s next? Also check out his podcasts. I thought I wouldn’t be into them, but the two with Matt Mullenweg of WordPress and Maria Popova of Brain Pickings changed my mind.
MarkManson.net – very blunt, brilliant articles on life, relationships, and topics that pretty much all humans can relate to.
James Clear – the habit-change master
ZenHabits.net – brief, but thoughtful blog posts to reflect and connect with your inner self
TinyBuddha – contributor articles written on mindfulness
BrainPickings – insightful book reviews on the brightest authors, leaders, philosophers, and history makers
