As the weather starts to warm up in Phoenix, you may be thinking it’s time to work on your summer body.
With all the information found on Internet platforms, it can be difficult to sift through it all and know where to start.
When I first started being serious about lifting weights and living healthy in 2018, YouTube was my main source of knowledge.
I learned about workout splits, different exercises, how to eat in a healthy but balanced way, and how to make a healthy lifestyle fun and sustainable.
If you are looking to make a healthy change, start by checking out these fitness youtubers!
Nikki Blacketter was my OG YouTuber when I first started getting into fitness. Blacketter is the ultimate girls’ girl, and perfect for college beginners that need a bit of confidence and a push in the right direction.
She posts a mix of fitness and lifestyle videos, making her great for someone who isn’t super serious about their fitness lifestyle.
Blacketter isn’t afraid to be herself and hopes to instill that in her viewers. You might even catch her around town someday, as she gets her hair done by @hairby_chrissy in Gilbert, AZ!
