Fitnessista is hiring!

Hi friends! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. We enjoyed an amazing staycation at the Del. While Iโ€™ve visited the property a couple of times, it was our first time staying at the hotel. It was magical. ๐Ÿ™‚ I canโ€™t wait to share more details + a video later this week!

So for today, I have some exciting news: Iโ€™m looking to expand my team.

Apply for fitnessista

When I started the blog 8 years ago, I had no idea what it would become. I just knew that I loved it. Since the blog birth, Iโ€™ve looked forward to connecting with you each day and sharing as much fitness knowledge as possible. That same enjoyment and fire is still there 8 years later, and this site has grown in ways I never could have fathomed when I was like, โ€œLetโ€™s try this blog thing out!โ€ and wrote my first post.

For this reason, Iโ€™m looking to expand the Fitnessista team. I need help executing all of the ideas and plans I have in place while providing the best possible content, especially with the upcoming Post Baby Bod Advanced launch.

Iโ€™m currently hiring one part-time employee with flexible hours. It would be preferable to be located in Tucson or San Diego, but we can figure out the distance thing if youโ€™re not located nearby.

The job’s requirements will vary on a weekly basis depending on what’s going on and where I need help. It will vary between the following tasks:

-Content brainstorming, editorial calendar, and repurposing old posts

-Photographing old recipes

-Creating pinnable graphics

-Optimizing posts for SEO


About the ideal candidate:

-An avid and enthusiastic blog reader, who reads a variety of fitness and lifestyle sites

-A fellow fitness connoisseur who takes and enjoys a variety of classes and workouts

-At least 3 years of experience writing for your own blog or another website

-Able to generate and produce compelling and enjoyable content

-Experience with photography, recipe creation, graphic design and social media (focus on Pinterest)

-Strong Lightroom and Photoshop skills. Experience with WordPress is a plus!

-Experience with SEO

-Extremely organized and detail-oriented

-Enthusiastic, driven, FUN (obvi)

If you think this might be you, please send an email to fitnessista at gmail dot com with the subject APPLICATION.

Please include a resume, cover letter, one Pinnable graphic that you created, and 3 ideas for blog posts that would fit the overall theme/vibe of my site.

Thank you so much for being here, and Iโ€™m really excited to see how this blog will continue to evolve with some extra hands on deck. ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a wonderful day and Iโ€™ll see ya soon!

      that is you!! i prewrote this post and forgot to actually SEND when i scheduled it. you should have it in your inbox now ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. What a cool opportunity! How about a web developer? Eh ๐Ÿ˜‰ I doubt you could afford me anyway, ha ha

    • Fitnessista says:

      you’re probably right about that. i pay my web designer on a project basis.. and that’s all i can do right now haha

  5. Hello, this would be such a dream job! Unfortunately, I lack at least half of those skills. Haha! Good luck! Thankful for this blog!

  6. JUST SENT!!! So excited about this opportunity!!!!

  7. That is awesome that you’re hiring! I just hired a VA myself. Things were getting a little hairy.

  8. So cool that you’re expanding your time! What an awesome accomplishment. Good luck on your search – I hope you find someone as positive and cool as you ; )

  9. Is this for fitnessista or for post baby bod site?

  10. Great news! Congratulations on your expansion!

  11. How exciting for you and your blog (and the readers!)! I’d love to be on your team but sadly I’m highly under qualified! LOL Best of luck!

  12. That’s great that you have expanded and are continuing to grow your blog. Does this mean that we will be reading stuff you aren’t writing? I get it, but I come to your blog to read what you have to say – not saying that I’ll stop reading though, just wondering.

    • Fitnessista says:

      No, it’s more for all of the behind the scenes stuff and things that take me much longer (seo, Pinterest, design, repurposing old content) because I’m not as strong with that

      • I have no experience with blogging, but I think it might be more helpful if you posted a more detailed job description, including details as to what the job will entail and responsibilities of the employee. For example, will this person be creating their own content or creating graphics and such for your content? Reading this post, I also assumed someone would be taking over some content creation, especially since you require 3 ideas for blog posts in the application. There can be a huge difference between someone who is creative with content and someone who is great at behind the scenes and “techy” stuff, so it might be helpful to be more specific? Good luck with your search.

        • Fitnessista says:

          i asked for 3 ideas in the application because i also need help with content brainstorming and my editorial calendar. i added a little blurb in the post- thank you for the guidance. i appreciate it.
          it’s a little tricky because the tasks will vary each weekend depending on what’s going on.

  13. Congrats Gina, it’s good to see one of my favorite bloggers do so well! And what a great opportunity for someone ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Go Gina Go!!!! I have loved following along your blog and seeing it grow! Your blog inspired me to finally follow my dreams in fitness and to start my own blog!

  15. I’m so excited for you! When I first read it, I thought “I want to work with her!!!” but I don’t meet the qualifications. You’re awesome and hope you find a great partner-in-crime to work with. In response to the other comments, you be you! The site & its followers will follow. Good luck!

  16. This is amazing! I would LOVE to apply but I am currently living in Japan. I just starting building a blog this past month. I am looking for a more flexible job with my LO. Good luck!

  17. This is amazing! What a fun part-time job. I bet you’ll be flooded with applicants. I mean who wouldn’t want to work with you! I need to work on getting qualified for a position like this – the best of all worlds <3

  18. Congratulations on expanding your business! I’ve been reading since the beginning, so it is so cool to see how it has taken off ๐Ÿ™‚ I am sure that you will find someone amazing!
