Fitness vlogs and
blogs are so popular, with everything from enthusiastic runners to
cross-country cyclists, we get breathless just thinking about it! If you’re into fitness, you’ll love this instalment of 5 Amazing Assets from Envato Elements, plus our top tips on making your vlog a success.
The Power Fitness Logo
Intro for Adobe After Effects is a high impact opener, perfect for fitness vlogs
or gym businesses. There’s a tutorial included in case you get stuck, but it’s
easy to set up and you won’t need any plug-ins.
Including some stock footage in your fitness vlog can work
as a useful cutaway between sections, or even just to place while you talk
about something specific, like this clip of a Fitness Center With Exercise
Clean and bold, this lower
thirds set for Adobe Premiere Pro is a 4 pack of fully customisable graphics.
Use them to introduce guests, or even just as a descriptor to highlight places or
products in your vlog.
The Bear Gym Logo Template
for Adobe Illustrator is great for a gym, fitness blog or other health and
lifestyle outlet. If you expand, it’s the kind of design that will look great
on promotional branding, uniforms and kit bags.
The Aggressive Sport Opener is a high-energy, well organised
template for After Effects. There are 20 placeholders for text and 20 for video
– just drag and drop!
Each asset here is

Tuts+ Tips for Fitness Vlogs
- Keep it positive – no-one likes a lecture and particularly
when you’re talking about bodies and fitness it can be a delicate balance.
- Try not to be too niche and conversely, not too ill-defined.
If you can grow a fanbase without being exclusive then you can quickly become
the expert in your field. There’s always time to branch out or widen your scope
- Post consistently. It’s unlikely anyone will follow your
vlog if you upload five in a week and then nothing for six months. Short and often
is the key, so do what you can reasonably manage.
- Give back to your audience. Rather than just letting them
follow your journey, help with things like meal plans, training schedules and advice
- As with all vlogs, get your sound
and your visuals right. That means investing
in good, but not necessarily expensive, kit.
