Stuck on what to write next in your fitness blog? In this article we cover:

1.) Tips on finding your own blog post ideas so you’ll never get writer’s block again.
2.) 80 unique and in-demand blog post ideas to get you started.

Top Tips for Finding Fitness Topics and Blog Post Ideas:

Listen to what your clients are asking you and what they’re talking about.

Are they asking you about specific exercises for injuries? Perhaps it’s the music tracks they listen to when the workout? Or the gear they need? What are their goals? Is it weight loss, building muscle or defined abs?

Who are your clients? What are their lives like? What challenges do they face? How old are they?

Are they mothers, career-focused, go on holidays, getting married or pregnant? Do they need to workout around the kids, their careers, their holidays, while working from home, to get in shape for a wedding or having a baby? Do they have other sports, hobbies or activities they may need to exercise for? Thinking about your clients and the challenges they have working out can give you many ideas.

Look on social media.

What questions are they asking in Facebook groups, for recommendations or support? Answering the questions they are posting on social media can make great blog posts too.

Google is Your Friend

Do a quick google search for topics that you are interested in writing in. Many Google searches now come up with question boxes underneath, giving you exact questions and search terms that people are searching for. Here is an example below:

Another Google Tip

When you do an initial search on Google, it will often finish off your search query for you with other terms that people are looking for.

For example, I typed “exercise routines” into the Google search box (shown below) and it comes up with lots of suggestions of ways other people have finished this search query.

You can have fun playing around with this. It works with the beginning of questions and phrases. It’s a great way to get ideas for new blog posts.

Think Local

If you’re a fitness instructor based in a location, think about what you can talk about that’s happening locally. These types of posts are likely to resonate with your existing client base and become searchable in google because there is less competition. It will also help people find your classes who live locally as google will start to associate your website with the locations you write about.

Save People Money and Time

People are busy and they like to save money. If your fitness blog posts can help them do that, they will appreciate the value. So consider blog posts that help in these areas. It could be coming up with 10-minute workouts they can fit in their busy day or reviewing products such as yoga mats which will offer them the best value.

Current Trends and Events

What is trending currently and how can this give you inspiration? For example, I am writing this post during the Covid 19 outbreak and we are all in lockdown. This means people have to find solutions for home workouts. They may be working online or buying home gym equipment. As a fitness blogger, how can you help with this?

Other types of trends include the types of exercises and workouts people are doing at the moment. For example, there was a time when insanity and Zumba workouts were all the rage. There are also celebrity trainers that people may be interested in reading about. The trainer of the moment in the UK in Joe Wicks.

What events are happening? Is it an Olympic year? What food trends are people following? Veganury is one that jumps to mind.

After a quick Google search here are some fitness trends I found in 2021

Fitness Trends 2021

Trail runs
Virtual Classes
Cold Water Therapy

Outdoor classes
Virtual challenges (such as virtual races)

Write what you’re interested in or what you know about?

Try and focus on articles that you are passionate about and will also interest your readers. Writing what you know is always quicker and you can share your knowledge with others. Writing what you’re passionate about will produce a better article and you won’t lose motivation.

Combining ideas you get from different groups and sources can give you some amazing blog post ideas on fitness. Try to think of post ideas which people are searching for but which don’t have tons of competition. Here are 80 to get you started.
