The target demographic for Fitness magazine is women who are serious about being healthy and staying active. This service-driven pub seeks to motivate and inspire readers with workouts, health advice, diet plans and more.
The mag is open to freelancers, but be creative with your pitch. Focus on an attention-grabbing idea, provide research to back up your claims and include clever suggestions for packaging the story. As for what to pitch:
Editors seek newsy, service-oriented pieces that would appeal to a health- and fitness-minded reader. Regular pitchable sections of the magazine include “Boost” (health and motivation), “Eat” (nutrition and food) and “Move” (fitness). Within each section are two- or three-page stories, as well as four-page features and reported pieces. Freelancers hoping to land a byline should come armed with breaking research on one of the magazine’s core topics.
