Best websites for learning about health and fitness

It used to be that if you wanted to learn about fitness, you had to either go to school for it, or at the very least hire a personal trainer. No longer.

Now the internet is full of health and fitness articles you can read for free. Too many of them in fact, and many are downright bad. (Dr. Oz comes to mind).

However, there are a lot of amazing websites that will teach you everything you could possibly want to know about health and fitness. Here are thirty of the best.
