How To Get Published

Six mistakes you can’t make if you want to write for fitness magazines.

Listen to what the experts are already saying…

“I’ve been writing for fitness magazines and websites for more than 10 years. But when I began doing it, my education and experience did not prepare me for the challenge. At first, my editors would ask for fewer words, more description, and constant re-writes. I wish a product like this existed back then. It literally tells you how to get the job done right the first time. Having a resource as valuable as this would have saved me hours of frustration and wasted time. It can do more than that for you. It can get you into the magazines and websites now!”

– C.J. Murphy, owner of Total Performance Sports and contributor to Men’s Fitness, Muscle&Fitness, Men’s Health, and

“The first time I was ever published in a magazine was in Men’s Fitness. Sean gave me the critical tips I needed to understand exactly how to deliver powerful, well-written articles that garner the attention of readers as well as make it easy for magazine editors to work with me on a regular basis.”

– Zach Even-Esh, owner of The Underground Strength Gym and contributor to Men’s Fitness, Fight!, and

“I can honestly say that Sean Hyson has been instrumental to my success and development as an author. He gave me a chance many years ago in Men’s Fitness when I was still an unknown strength coach. I still remember the issue and the story like it was yesterday. I had no idea what I was doing but through his direction and guidance, my first article was the featured workout, spanning four whole pages. Sean taught me how critical it was to understand the magazine you're writing for, and to learn what the readers expect from you before you even start the article. I was so used to my own style of writing for my site that the first draft I sent Sean was beyond horrible. I'm sure he had a ton of sleepless nights trying to edit that monstrosity! Fortunately, I got better, and today, I have been published in most every national fitness magazine on the market.”

– Jim Smith, owner of Diesel Strength and Conditioning and contributor to Men’s Fitness, Oxygen, and

“Sean Hyson is easily one of the best writers in the fitness industry today. Working closely with him over the last decade has improved my skills considerably and taught me what it takes to produce easily consumable, high-quality content. He is not only my friend and brother but someone I continue to learn from on a regular basis. Watch what he does, listen to what he says, and you'll get better. It's that simple.”

– Jason Ferruggia, owner of The Renegade Gym and contributor to Men’s Fitness, Men’s Health, Today’s Man, and Maximum Fitness
