#BlackGirlFitness: 7 YouTubers Who Will Get Your Body Right

Summer is pretty much wrapping up at this point, but our journey to a summer body doesn't have to end when the leaves start falling.


Working on my fitness has been a love/hate journey and I know I'm not alone. Still, I used to seriously despise working out. There weren't enough Beyonce playlists and motivational videos to make me enjoy going to the gym, but of course, that's one of the keys to getting fit and healthy.

I started looking up videos on YouTube until I came across a few that I liked and felt good doing from the comfort of my living room. It didn't take long to find out that Black girls are out here running the fitness game! Check out a few ladies who will help you get and keep your body right (and just happen to be full of melanin).

1.​Keaira LaShae

Keiara LaShae was actually one of the first videos I came across on YouTube. I found her Hip-Hop Tabata workout on PopSugar's YouTube channel. Let me say, this is not easy! But as Keaira says, "With challenge comes change." I cried after my first workout, but after doing it multiple times, you do feel a change and it feels so good. I did a little stalking and Keiara's specialty is the Tabata workout that helps you work out every part of your body, from your thighs to your abs. And she makes it fun! The videos are about 30 minutes, but it actually goes by quickly. Not to mention, cardio is something you can definitely be proud of when you're finished. This is now my go-to workout. My husband even noticed that I was getting toned, which is huge because he hardly ever notices anything.
