If you’re looking for an illustrator to design some exercise demos for promotional materials such as an e-books, infographics, or a resource library, etc., don’t worry – I’ve got some resources for you!
Personally, I’m a graphic designer and do offer PDF design (along with web design), but I don’t do custom illustrations.
Three places to find illustrated exercise demos
Deezify shares a lot of his illustrations on his Instagram account, and he has a full shop of accessories and merch with illustrations as well. His website doesn’t explicitly say if he offers custom illustrations, but it doesn’t hurt to ask!
WorkoutLabs has entire illustrated library of exercises, and you can sort by female or male characters. Not only that, but they have an entire yoga illustration library as well. It’s a great database that you can search and find which illustrations you need for your own business.
ExRx has a CD of 3D illustrations available with a wide variety of exercises: band and chain, lifts, mobility exercises, testing, dumbbells and barbells, cable. Their CD works on both Mac and PC!
Alternatives for fitness illustrations
Instead of using illustrations, you could always use photos or videos of yourself! You could easily upload your demonstration of each movement onto YouTube, which would give you an added SEO benefit. Just make sure you brand your YouTube channel to your business, and include a link to your website in the description of each video.
You’ll also want to make sure that you optimize the keywords of each fitness move, and not just name the videos “Move 4” so that it can help your SEO. It doesn’t have to be anything special, but name the specific move and equipment.
If you decide to go with photos instead of video, Canva (aff. link) is a great resource to piece together infographics, ebooks, and whatnot.
