Top 100 Health and Fitness Influencers for 2020

Every year we put together a list featuring our favorite social media accounts for health and fitness news. The goal of these lists isn’t to give more exposure to high profile fitness celebrities and Instagram models. We want to shine the spotlight on real people who share incredible advice and inspiration through their social media accounts.

Since we put out our 2019 list we have gotten a lot more familiar with the health and fitness social media scene. So if you compare this list with the last one there are a lot of changes. We think everyone from the 2019 list is amazing, but we had many more great accounts to consider this year. As always you can follow this list directly on Twitter if you would like.

Community Contributors

We reached out to our social media community and asked them to nominate their favorite health and fitness influencers and they really came through. Many of the people on this years list were highly recommended. We would like to thank everyone who nominated someone. In no particular order:

Thanks For Checking Out Our List!

I want to stress that this list is extremely subjective and there were a lot more people on our initial list than we could include. Eventually we had to stop and take the top 100 off the list and call it good. If you feel like we forgot someone please leave their name and Twitter handle in the comments below.

I am the technical person behind OthFit.com. I write a little bit but most of my work is behind the scenes. I am working to get back in shape and reclaim some of the agility and strength I've lost to age and injury.

    You’re missing one of the Godfathers of the LCHF movement along with Dr. Atkins. That would be Dr. Mike Eades ( @DrEades ). He, of “Protein Power” fame which is the book he wrote back in the mid-90s. There are a few others you’re missing, but no list is complete without him being listed. PD Mangan, as mentioned in another comment, is another.
