  3. Very solid list! I’m proud to say I’ve trolled many these sites for years.

  4. I’m sitting down to read The Four Hour Body after this post, so I’m honored and excited to be on this list with awesome athletes and wellness experts. 🙂

  5. Maybe next year Health Habits will make the list

  6. I highly recommend Healthy, Happy Living at http://www.cherylmillerville.com/blog Check it out!

  7. I really like Zen Habits, and I have worked together with Mark putting together a health fair…Mark is GREAT. I don’t know if I like Tim Ferris’ approach to “hacking” fitness however. I just think a lot of the stuff he does isn’t healthy in the long run and cuts a lot of corners….just my $.02

    • Thanks Joe! It’s cool to hear you know Mark – I’ve recently been “living Primal” and totally loving it.
