About Fitt:

Fitt is a community-driven media platform and localized marketplace where people discover, share, and sign up for health and fitness activities.

We’re creating the daily homepage of local fitness communities for people passionate about living an active lifestyle. With more than 25 city-specific sites, we obsessively cover what’s happening in boutique fitness, fit and active events, and healthy (and healthy-ish) eateries.

In each Fitt city, local contributors act as our eyes, ears, and ambassadors on the ground. This growing network of reporters provides comprehensive coverage of their city’s local fitness scene.

  • Ability to manage your own workload effectively, whether it’s quick turnarounds or longer-term projects
  • An interest in storytelling across genres (news, features, commentary, etc.) and social platforms
  • Proficient in Google Docs
  • Passion for health, fitness, and living an active lifestyle

Responsibilities

  • Write, edit, and proofread articles assigned or approved by a Fitt Editor
