Technology

They say that you are most likely to be shaped and influenced by the people you spend the most time with. I've always been acutely aware of this and have gone as far as making career decisions based solely on this concept. But it occurred to me, social networks make just as much impact in what we do and think about everyday, just as much as the people we interact with in real life.

 

I'd like to think that I follow, and stick with, people and brands on Twitter who keep me positive, healthy, informed and passionate. I took a look at my Twitter stream a few months ago and found a whole lot of noise, negativity, and excuses. So I cleaned house and distilled the best of the best fitness accounts, compared notes with other coaches and athletes, and created the best damn fitness Twitter list you could possible ask for, broken up into eight categories.

 

 

You can subscribe to each account individually by clicking on their Twitter handle, or subscribe to the entire list here. Do you know of Twitter account that should have made the cut? Comment below!
