  • Ability to think creatively about packaging, presentation and promotion of fitness articles.
  • An interest in helping people from all backgrounds live their healthiest, happiest lives.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication.
  • Not afraid to wear multiple hats – no job being too small or too large.
  • We’re casual and informal but we work hard and work responsibly. Personal accountability goes a long way. We believe we are the change.
