About Us

The Fit Brit is a blog made by a group of fitness nuts who just love everything about eating good, pounding pavement, pumping iron and eating healthy. We're not pro athletes or bodybuilding champions - we're regular people with regular jobs just like you - we just love to get after it with our fitness goals and want to take you with us!

We believe the best investment you can ever make is in your health, and that a healthy body leads to a healthy mind and a healthy life. Through this site we hope to reignite a culture of fitness and show people that even if you only have 15 minutes a day, that's still enough for you to invest in some exercise and make a real difference to your life.

We come from all walks, from personal trainers, to bodybuilding junkies, to marathoners, to martial artists, to Ironman triathletes. We hope to share whatever knowledge we have gained on our fitness journeys to help you improve your health, little by little, one day at a time. Our hope is to make every soul in the UK a true Fit Brit!
