Starting a fitness blog is like starting any other blog but in fitness category you have to have a little more knowledge of the subject. Because fitness is related to the health of the human beings, so it is highly recommended that you do not start a blog if you don't know anything about it. If you are a fitness freak and have done courses in fitness then it is one of the best category to go for blogging. Lot of people are adopting the lifestyle of eating healthy, living healthy and being fit. That is why a lot of people are searching for information on internet, reading more books, following guides and following different types of diets. This in turn creates the requirement of blogs which have very comprehensive and correct information.

So, if you fulfil all the above requirements, then you can continue below and see for yourself how you can make money by starting a fitness blog.


Choosing the Perfect Platform for Fitness Blogging 

Now you have decided to start the blog so let's do it by choosing your first platform for starting the fitness blog. There are various options you can choose from:

  1. Wordpress

    Wordpress is one of the most popular blogging platform and even for big websites. WordPress is currently used by more than 50% of the bloggers. This has lot of many features and plugins you can use to create your blog without the need of learning any coding. Just follow tutorials and you are done.

  2. Blogger

    Blogger is another platform powered by Google which gives you one click solution to start your blog but due to its limits starting blog is easy but scaling it and making money can be a little harder when it comes to adding new features and system in your blog.
  3. Other platforms are Medium, Wix, Tumblr, Squarespace, Ghost etc. but I would not recommend them because they have their limits and they may be easy to set up but again features like auto linking to affiliates, auto ads, customising the theme according to your needs are pain in the dashhh. So I would recommend stick to wordpress.

Choosing the Hosting for your Fitness Blog

For hosting I would recommend you to use Hostinger because they have the one of the best and the cheapest plan for starters. So you will have to spend less money and you will get quality service from these guys, even I use them for lots of my blogging needs.Their plan starts from $.99 a month with free ssl and email and 99.99% uptime record. 

Also why I am recommending them is because they have one click wordpress install option. So you do not need to download WordPress zip file then upload it and then extract it and then create the database all yourself. All these things will be done for you with just few clicks of button.

Writing Your First Blog on The Fitness Topic

Now that you have set up your blog, you are ready to go and write your first blog. By setting your blog I mean is that you need to choose your theme customizint it etc. or you can go by the default theme while you learn how to customise your blog. Now, you are ready to write your first blog, to decide a topic, you should be understanding that you are writing for an audience that do not know anything about fitness and you have to treat them as newbies that don't know anything about fitness. Content generation is the very first base before you start making money. Make sure you are solving problems of the people because this is what they search for on the internet and if your blog is not solving problems for the people then no one will be interested in it so make sure you give good and comprehensive information while you write. Make sure to keyword research before you get into writing and look for long tail keywords to target first.

Making Money from your Fitness Blog

There are three major ways through which you can make money from your fitness blog.

1. Advertisement

Advertisement is one of the most popular way of making money through blogging. Adsense is the top used source for running ads on your website. Here is how you do it:

  • Sign up on AdSense.
  • Enter your website and get the code.
  • Paste the code given by the AdSense in your website on the places where you want to show the ads.
  • AdSense will check your blog and once it is approved it will automatically start showing ads.
  • Now keep creating content and start making money.

2. Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is highly used by bloggers to make money and if you want to make real money like big sum of amount then affiliate marketing is the way to go. To make money from affiliate marketing sign up on platform like Clickbank, Shareasale, CommissionJunction etc.

After you sign up on these platforms search for offers that are related to your blog topic or you can write topics related to these offers and promote them but make sure do not overly promote and forgot about the audience. Try to solve the problem of the audience through these fitness products, fitness courses, diet charts, etc.

3. Selling your own Fitness Courses

If you are a fitness guru and are well-versed in the field of fitness then the third method you can use is to sell your own fitness course. First of all create videos related to fitness. For example "1 month course guide on loosing 20 pounds of weight", "Keeping your Body Fit and Healthy - Course 101" etc. Now you can advertise these courses on Google ads, Facebook ads, Instagram ads etc. and on your blog. Even you can sign up on the affiliate websites to sell your own courses and share commission to whoever promotes your courses. So, instead of you promoting for others, others will be promoting your courses to make commission.

That's all folks I hope you like the guide on how to make money by starting your own fitness blog.
