With the silly season wrapping up and 2021 just around the corner, I’m sure many of us are contemplating our New Year’s resolutions.

With bellies still full of Christmas feeds, the age-old resolution of getting fit and healthy is likely to have made its way back onto the list (again).

One small step that will help you commit to this resolution past January is filling your social feeds with motivational messages, inspiring recipes and mob who share their workout ideas online.

Below you’ll find some deadly Indigenous-operated accounts that will help you commit to bouncing back after Nan’s Christmas feed.

@BlackfitFitness

For content surrounding health, fitness and mental wellbeing, Blackfit Fitness hits the nail on the head.

Starting out as a Facebook page in 2015, Blackfit Fitness was established by Gomeroi man, Joshua Toole.

After seeing almost no health and fitness platforms aimed at inspiring mob, Toole took matters into his own hands and started his social media accounts to provide culturally appropriate health information with a holistic approach.

From sharing native recipes, workout ideas and reminders to look after your mind – Blackfit Fitness provides the important message that your emotional and spiritual wellness is as valuable as your physical fitness.
