Time to make those gym gains.

There is nothing harder than finding the motivation to go to the gym — or choosing to eat that green salad over that greasy slice of pizza heaven.

Especially during the summer months, the constant feeling to look a certain way and actively follow a healthy lifestyle is time consuming. We take longer over-thinking how we look and the food we eat instead of just living in the moment and enjoying every minute of our precious time.

There are some incredible and strong women out there who put their fitness journey on the Internet to help inspire others.

Living a healthy lifestyle is more than just eating your veggies and working out regularly — it is practicing self-love and giving yourself the pamper time you deserve.

There are many fitness bloggers I look up to for inspiration and motivation.

These women aren’t perfect and don’t want you to think their body is the ultimate goal — they want to create an environment where every woman is confident in her skin and lives the healthiest lifestyle that she can.

Here is a quick rundown of my top three favorite fitness bloggers and why they are truly so inspiring:

1. Maryana Dvorska

A fresh face to the fitness vlogging world, Maryana Dvorska has powered through countless weight loss slumps until she finally found her groove. The 23-year-old fitness guru has transformed both her physical and mental health over the course of three years. She created both a YouTube channel and an Instagram that revolve around her favorite workouts, quick and healthy meals, and clothing favorites.

She is not shy when talking about topics that may be a little uncomfortable – not being able to digest dairy and having serious bloating problems being a few. She constantly shares recipes for those who don’t want to break the bank buying healthier food alternatives and strives to make her followers feel they can relate to her and her weight loss story.

She partners with Gym Shark and Women’s Best (an active wear online clothing store and a health food line) to give her followers discounts on her fitness favorites and must-haves.

Her videos are inspiring and uplifting, as well as super informative. Whether you’re just starting your fitness journey or are a gym fiend, Dvorska is your go-to-gal for all things fitness goals.

She also has the cutest style.…

20 Inspiring Quotes That Make Going To The Gym A Whole Lot Easier

Feel the burn!

Welcome to the end of the summer. If you are anything like me you had major #GOALS to get the summer bod of your dreams. And if you are really like me, that didn’t exactly happen.

So you are going into the new school year or you are going back to work and you are thinking “this will be the year.” I know I am. But going to the gym and making healthy choices is a lot easier said than done. I know once I step back on campus, I will be confronted with a wall of responsibilities that don’t include the gym.

Life is busy, we all know that. But what if we could change our mindset about working out and eating healthy to make going to the gym a lot easier. Well, we can. Instead of just saying over and over again for the millionth time, “I want to eat healthier,” define what that means to you.


To me, eating healthy is fueling my body with what it needs to get through the day and STILL have energy by the end of the day. Recently I’ve started checking out the nutrition labels on foods I buy and ACTUALLY being aware of what I am putting into my body. I know, crazy right?!

The gym is more of a mental obstacle than anything else. I don’t know how many times I’ve made dumb excuses for myself to allow myself not to make it to the gym and work out that day.


Getting ANY type of movement is so important for our bodies. And now more than ever, I am starting to understand that. As a 21-year-old, I should NOT be having joint pain. It’s just not OK and it’s time to start listening to my body. And so should YOU!

But going to the gym should NEVER be about anyone other than YOURSELF. Your body is YOUR body, which means your decision to workout should be because YOU want to make healthier choices and YOU want to treat your body right.

You may not know it now, but today IS the day.

“It’s the days when the body aches, the desire is low, you feel tired and you feel weak…those are the days when champions train.”


And that’s ALL she needs.

“She believed she could, so she did.”


That day will feel GOOD!

“It hurts, but
