With the Health Blog Awards less than 2 months away, we thought we’d share the stories from some of our shortlisted bloggers, starting with the Fitness and Yoga and Spirituality categories.
Yoga and Spirituality
Elle from Enlivening Elle
Enlivening Elle is a yoga-focused health blog, with a good dose of scientific evidence. It is a space offering you the tools to enliven and fully charge up your life – your one stop shop for yoga tips, recipes and BS-free articles on how to live healthily and sustainably.
I’m working to bring together holistic wellness and scientifically-backed health, as I believe the two should work together in harmony.
I’m also passionate about bringing the health scene out of London and into the north of England, by organising events and workshops, and working to connect bloggers, brands and customers together.
Ally from Ally the Earthling
Ally is a warm-hearted spirit focusing on self-love, empowerment and manifestation through vegan recipe development and food aesthetics.
I encourage and support people in their journeys of self-growth to become the best version of themselves, through caring for their bodies and minds as well as the world around them through veganism.
My blog and Instagram is a safe space for people to come together or to talk with me directly about personal challenges and pushing through limiting beliefs.
I share my own experiences with dealing with negative emotions and building myself back up from rock-bottom, and promote a life full of love, compassion and gratitude.
Zoe from Aloha and Coffee
Zoe’s blog is a mix of yoga, travel, food and life, all of which she loves in equal measures!
Life isn’t perfect and my blog is here to show you that it’s ok not to have it all figured out by the time you’re 25 (ok, 30!)
My blog is a reflection of me and where I am with a little bit of where I travel! I’m a yoga teacher, mom, business owner, traveller, wannabe meditator and wannabe recipe creator.
My blog is real – no airs and graces and no holds barred.
I want to show people that it’s ok to be themselves too. There is no magic answer to life and the struggles we face are all part of the journey and all steps along the path we are meant to take. I share snippets of my travels and my life in the hope that it inspires others on their journey.
Sarah from That Squat Bot
That Squat Bot is a fitness and health blog for busy people that answers the question: ‘how do you make the most of your functional fitness with a hectic lifestyle’?
There were very few websites out there that covered running, lifting and eating for fun, instead of how you look.
So in late 2013 I launched my blog to change that!
This year I’ve been focusing my content on helping others with the issues I’ve uncovered with my brand new PT business, such as exercise for stress.
I would love to turn this into a bigger part of my life and career and feel a Health Blogger Award could really springboard me into helping even more people.
Vicki from Vicki Mellard PT
Vicki’s blog is a place for her to share all things fitness, healthy living and body positivity, featuring a mixture of workouts and training advice, body confidence chats & empowerment tasks and healthier lifestyle posts.
It’s about helping women fall back in love with their bodies again.
I am a personal trainer with a difference. I don’t believe in quick fixes or transformations and you will never see me create a diet plan. Instead I am all about helping my clients and my audience focus on themselves, to be the best and healthiest version of themselves in a positive way.
I think the message I am trying to put out there is a vital one and I hope through my blog and social media it helps someone in someway.
Tamsyn from Fat Girl to Iron Man
Tamsyn is partway through a personal challenge to become an iron distance triathlete and her blog is a way of documenting that.
I’ve transformed myself from an overweight couch potato to a swimmer, cyclist and runner.
I blog honestly about the struggles I’m going through – whether they’re weight-related or simply finding the time to train with a sick toddler.
I can back up what I say with credentials as I’m a qualified fitness instructor and coach in running fitness.
