There are stock photo websites out there, but there are no fitness stock photo websites out there, other than Cavemantraining! What is the difference?
A fitness stock photo website:
- lists photos with correct technique
- list photos with incorrect technique but marks them as such
- does not list a kettlebell swing as a dumbbell exercise
In short, a fitness stock photo website is managed by fitness professionals.
Cavemantraining is currently collecting interest from athletes and photographers all over the world to submit their photos.

What are some of the issues with other stock photo websites?
- the currators/editors have no fitness/exercise accreditations nor the knowledge to decide what is good form, and/or whether assigned title plus keywords are correct
- you’ll find that everything these days is tagged with the keyword “CrossFit” so if you’re looking for real CrossFit photos you’ll be wading through OCR races, everyday housewives cycling on a stationary bike etc.
Cavemantraining stock photos only focusses on fitness related photos and all submitted photos are manually reviewed and appropriately tagged, titled and categorized.
