From Workout music to cycling clubs - a huge collection of links that take you to virtually every fitness site on the Internet. Not much discrimination or guidance here, but sometimes you just want to surf.
The site's primary purpose is to disseminate information on exercise and nutritution. The site achieves this goal by providing a comprehensive directory of fitness related sites that is updated monthly.
The site is divided into five separate pages. The Home Page presents the current Site of The Month, information on what has been added and/or changed in the most recent update, a listing of the new sites included in the update and a detailed description of the various categories presented on the two link pages. The Links Page and the Text Links Page are comprehensive directories of fitness related sites. Both pages are identically categorized by subject and sport, but the Text Links Page that does not contain the colored background and shows the table of contents in a list format. The Previous Sites of the Month Page provides descriptions of sites previously awarded the designation. Fitness related classified advertisements can also be found here.
