Who are We Looking For?

A full-time, highly experienced, brilliant and charismatic assistant video editor with a passion for telling great stories that motivate people to action. This is a full-time, 100% remote position with a flexible work/vacation schedule as lifestyle is hugely important to our company.

Our fitness and nutrition products fundamentally change people’s lives for the better. Because of that, we’re sitting on a goldmine of highly motivating life transformation stories. We leverage these stories for our paid ads, for social media and for branded content. We need an editor who is fast, efficient and can work with multiple Sr. Producers to build strong story-driven advertisements to unearth this goldmine.

The ideal person is extremely results-driven and gets tremendous satisfaction from having their work see the light of day quickly… and being motivated by seeing the impact it has. We want someone of who obsesses about and loves to produce/edit… but also someone who loves to think big and be bold

Your projects will include everything from working on compelling customer testimonial videos to thought-leadership videos to, video tutorials that teach our metabolism-first approach, in-studio productions such as workout programs and podcasts and viral videos meant to power our social media content campaigns.

The ideal person is extremely self-motivated, loves to grind out work consistently and is comfortable being hands-on in all facets of video production. You’re a creative problem solver who can manage all elements of a video’s pre-production, production and post-production process, including planning, scheduling and editing.

Just as we obsess about creating metabolism-optimizing products that get the most results in the least time, we’re looking for someone equally obsessed about doing the same thing with producing the highest quality video possible as measured by what delivers the best results for the company.

While your production and editing skills are important, it's how fast you process information, how quickly (and accurately) you can cycle through work and how well you work with our senior team. To that end, communication is key to this role, as is the ability to self-motivate and quickly turn great creative into a project that you can jump on immediately.

Who is This Opportunity Perfect For?

If you’re tired of the commute, sick of burning the midnight oil and stress is dominating your life, this is your opportunity to take back control, live life under your own terms and design a lifestyle that brings you joy, happiness and satisfaction.

Or, if you’ve always wanted to be a part of the thrill of a rapidly growing company, but didn’t want to move to an expensive big city with all the madness, stress and high cost that brings, this is your opportunity to stay where you are (or move to where you always wanted to go) to design your ideal life.

Or, if you’re drowning in the corporate or agency world, suffocating from constantly shifting priorities that nobody agrees on, jumping from one fire to the next, incessant scope creep, micromanaging bosses, endless meetings, constant interruptions and no respect for the quiet time you need to actually get work done, this is your opportunity to simplify and go deep – to pour your heart and soul into ONE big opportunity… and scale it like never before.

Regardless of your situation, whether you prefer to work in the quiet of your own home, sipping a delicious cup of coffee at your favorite coffee shop, or outside enjoying the sunshine on a bright, beautiful day… AND you are a humble, high-performing individual who would THRIVE in this type of environment, then please read on, as we can’t wait to meet you.

Who Are We and What’s the Company’s Background?

Our mission is to spread our metabolism-first way of living we’ve been busy perfecting for 8 years to a worldwide audience. It’s a lifestyle that’s 100% focused on getting you the results that matter: looking your best, feeling your best and doing your best. In the shortest time possible. And in a way that sticks.

That’s why our tag line is “Life’s Short. Make it Count.” It puts you back in control. It empowers you to fix your own problems. And it makes you want to tell the world about it.

Our vision is to do this by becoming a billion-dollar multi-channel brand that’s distributed via online, mobile and physical retail. We’ve been painstakingly building the products, services, framework and high-performance culture to make this happen. And now we’re ready for a much larger stage.

We’ve built a full ecosystem of products and services that allow someone to live a metabolism-first lifestyle. This includes exercise and nutrition programs, nutraceuticals, functional foods and membership programs. We’re launching a mobile app next year, then will push into offline retail, extend into home-delivered meals and more. But ONE thing at a time, just like we’ve done for 8 years.

Our next major step is rolling out our new Metabolic Living brand and centralized e-commerce website at, using highly customized Shopify implementation, by December. As part of this, we will sunset our old brand, Natural Health Sherpa, and consolidate our various product-driven microsites like at

So why is a metabolism-first lifestyle needed? Because there are record amounts of sick, overweight, tired and depressed people piling up in virtually every country. Why is that? Because we’re over-worked, over-stressed, over-fed and toxic. And we’re deprived of the sleep, nutrition, exercise, movement and relaxation we need to thrive. That’s a recipe for disaster. And we’re seeing it.

Unfortunately, the typical solution of extreme dieting and exercise trap people into a 1-step-forward-2-steps back vicious cycle that actually makes them worse off. They bounce around from one latest flavor-of-the-month program to the next, never making any progress… staying trapped in a downward spiral.

Rigid philosophies like Paleo or Vegan, while extremely healthy for some, create an us-vs-them tribal mentality that’s self-limiting. Neither of those philosophies work for all people all the time… or even the same person all the time. People differ. People change. If that’s not respected, things will backfire.

We, on the other hand, present a framework that allows you to customize your life in a way that works best for you, so you can reach your fullest metabolic potential. Because we’ve found through working with millions of people that a fully optimized metabolism is what delivers the results you want.

Instead of fighting against your body or your life, we empower you to work with your body and life to create the perfect program for you. One that’s practical. One that’s sustainable. One that’s enjoyable. And, most importantly, one that delivers the results you want at any stage of life. And fast.

And we practice what we preach: our company is designed so everyone on our team both enjoys their work challenges while having plenty of time to do what they most in their life. We recruit only high-performing, humble people who produce in fast cycles, hold themselves accountable and have fun. And we invest a TON into our team, mentoring, coaching, teaching high performance habits and more.
