Hi Mike – sorry for missing this earlier; I’ve been dealing with about a billion spammy comments on this site and yours got mixed up in that folder. 🙂 You can definitely still start a fitness blog and share your personal experiences. I think examples of workouts you do, fitness mindset stuff, etc is all great. I would be careful about anything that could be construed as medical advice (i.e. specific nutrition advice) – and I might add a disclaimer to the site that notes your not a licensed fitness professional – but otherwise I think there’s room for all of us to share!

I will say as far as SEO goes, you’re probably going to have better luck ranking if you do have credentials from an EAT standpoint for Google (expertise, authoritativeness, and trust). It’s one of the factors that goes into ranking. A trainer certification is fairly inexpensive to pursue, so it might be worthwhile to do if you have hopes of monetizing the blog over time.

I hope that helps – let me know if you have questions. 🙂
