    Post LG Sciences is looking for freelance FITNESS WRITERS!


    LG Sciences has some exciting new things in the works.

    We're currently looking for men and women interested in writing informal columns and articles related to fitness training, diet and nutrition, food and drink, cooking, sports, the lifestyle, etc...

    If this sounds like something that interests you, post any questions you have, and I'll answer to the best of my ability.

    If you'd like to talk about this opportunity privately, you can either PM me or email me at scottc@lgsciences.com

    I look forward to hearing from you!

    Hey IC this sounds like a great idea. I am sure the first question will be what is the compensation (if any)?

    Supplements would be the start, and may develop into something else depending on the type of work; featured or freelance. It depends on feedback and such.

    Yes, we're going through some changes with the site. We're going to have a large informational section. Articles on various things will be a big focus.

    No, it doesn't matter at all.

    Justin doesn't really have anything to do with the new site or the articles. This is kind of my baby, so you're better off just talking to me about it. You CAN talk to Justin, I don't care, but I don't know what you'd really be talking to him about when it comes to this.

    I have no problem writing articles portraying the typical bone-heads that clutter gyms across the world. They will also include proper gym etiquette. Good articles for self-reflection, should the reader feel a sense of guilt or perhaps even hostility. Someone needs to step up and speak out regarding said matters.

    There isn't necessarily any experience or background required as this is all freelance. If it's a great article, we'll use it and you get a supplement of your choice. If it sucks, we won't use it and you won't get anything. lol

    The "featured writers" will be writers sort of on staff with the website. They'll have a more permanent deal going. I'll decide who those individuals are based on experience and writing talent. I've already got a few lined up for those positions. They're either world-record holding athletes, strength coaches, influential recreational athletes, and/or professional athletes.

    If your work continues to come in and exceeds expectations, then I'll most likely be contacting you for a spot as a featured writer, assuming there is an open position.

    My dear friend! This is the best thread I have seen on AM!

    Two loves, in one harmony. Writing, and fitness/wellness/diet/supplementation!

    I am a writer by trade ^.^ Even wrote the last Christmas play that apparently was a great success due to its "outside the box" approach to the Christmas story

    Man do I miss writing papers for school...sounds stupid, but was always fun.

    There will be a link on our new website giving you information on where to send articles for publication.

    Until then, you can send them to me: scottc@lgsciences.com

    Please DO NOT contact me for any reasons other than the articles. If it's about something else, just shoot me a PM.

    Nope, not at all. While this site will be owned by LG Sciences, and there really won't be any direct discussion towards other specific supplements (ingredients are fine, just not products by direct competitors), this site is designed to be purely informational based. I want athletes from all over to come to OUR site to get information on training, strength routines, dieting, lifestyle choices, etc., from a group of people just like themselves. - It won't be purely based around Bodybuilding or Powerlifting. I've even got a featured author that used to play in the NBA! Here's a few that will be writing for us:

    Luka Hocevar: http://www.hocevarperformance.com/
    Chase Karnes: http://chasekarnes.com/
    Rosie Scott (you all know this lady ) : http://rosiesmusclerevolution.webs.com/
    Darilyn Doddy: YouTube- Darilyn Doddy age 19 Bench presses 330

    ...and a few others. (They're not freelance)

    Ok guys this is ALL SET!!!

    Anyone can submit articles. If your article is chosen, you'll be notified. At that point, let us know which supplement you want. - Protein requires two articles as it costs so much to ship.

    SUBMIT ARTICLES TO: articles@lgsciences.com

    The site will not be ready for a few more weeks, but I'm gathering content right now, so get them in!

    Anyone can submit articles. If your article is chosen, you'll be notified. At that point, let us know which supplement you want. - Protein requires two articles as it costs so much to ship.

    SUBMIT ARTICLES TO: articles@lgsciences.com

    The site will not be ready for a few more weeks, but I'm gathering content right now, so get them in!
    Nice, any categories you guys have planned so we have some ideas where to start? I was also thinking of getting some healthy eating recipes together if that would fit in somewhere....

    Basically anything. I believe the categories listed will be: Training, Supplement Science, Cooking, Food and Beverage, Traveling and Leisure, Entertainment, and Sports.

    lol I didnt know F+B and cooking were categories. My current full time job (while I do KB training part time) is a line cook (used to be sous chef) at a major resort.

    I can help you a lot if I ever get a minute to put anything on paper
