OthFit.com is a heath and fitness blog for middle age and older adults. We are always looking for high quality, informative content. If you are a health and/or fitness expert with something to share with our audience we would love to have you contribute.

Submission Guidelines

  • Relevant - All submissions need to be of interest to middle aged adults looking to improve their health and fitness.
  • Original - Each submission must be you own original work, and must not be published elsewhere previously.
  • Well Researched - Each post must be well researched and authoritative. Include references & citations as necessary.
  • 1000+ Words - Each post needs to be long enough to go into detail on the topic. Shorter posts may be considered but only if they are very high quality.
  • Well Written - We may edit the contribution if it is accepted but articles need to be as ready to publish as possible.
  • Non Promotional - Articles submitted must be informative and actionable, not sales pitches. Avoid using specific brand or product names. If you would like to advertise please contact us about our rates.
