Credit: hyperscholar

We’re taking a break from our regularly scheduled FitLinks programming to bring you a special Beginner’s Week FitLinks featuring our favorite health and fitness tools and websites. Let’s face it: The internet is a vast place, so it’s easy to get lost in all of the junk. We’re making it easy for you beginners by breaking down our faves. Bookmark these puppies today!


At SparkPeople, you’re getting a great free fitness website chock full of healthy living content and community. Join a group and watch your progress. Plus, Jenn regularly contributes, so it’s gotta be good!


Perfect for holding yourself accountable to yourself and others, PEERtrainer allows you to journal your daily fitness and activities.  Join a team (you can join the Fit Bottomed Girls team!) to get group support and that gentle nudge you might need to get moving.


FitDay rocks for tracking food and nutrition. A massive food library allows you to easily choose and enter your eats for the day.

CalorieKing and Calorie Count

Don’t know how many calories are in that glazed donut? CalorieKing knows. And knowledge is half the battle! Also try Caloriecount.com. Calorie Count allows you to enter entire recipes and will tabulate the nutritionals for you. Easy peasy!

Hungry Girl

Dying for some buffalo wings, but know they’re not calorie friendly? Visit Hungry Girl. She finds a way to healthify any obnoxiously bad-for-you food.


The minds behind the EatingWell Diet, Vtrim isn’t some hoaxy weight-loss gimmick. It’s a scientific weight management program that follows FBG’s philosophies!


With tons of free workouts online, Exercise TV is perfect for on-the-go workouts. Plus, right now it’s featuring a New Year, New You program where you can pledge to lose weight and win prizes in doing so! Win win!


Want to change? iChange can help! The weight-loss counseling program can match you with experts who will personalize programs for you. Think eHarmony for health!

  1. WOW! You’ve named so many of my favourites! How cool! Great minds really DO think alike! 😉

  2. LoriM says:

    Highly recommend videofitness.com for tons of video/dvd (they need a name update!) reviews, and a great message board and other helps.

  3. WooHoo SparkPeople!!! It is an amazing website and community. I have it to thank for being 30lbs lighter!

  4. Jules says:

    Thanks for all the referrals. I will have to check some out

  5. Becky says:

    I have used several of these. Another good site is DailyBurn.com. I can’t decide if I like it or SparkPeople better though.

  6. Joan Price says:

    Thanks for the share. Another one you might want to add is FitClick.com. It really reminds me sort of sparkpeople except its way more in depth and has more options. If you are serious about fitness and your health definitely check it out.

    Also would add “http://helsify.com” – some good articles about alcohol, weight plateau and so on…
