Call from the former editor

I wanted to let everyone know that I had a phone conversation with the former Editor of Muscle & Fitness magazine, gave him my pitches over the phone and he liked them with some tweaking of course. I have two articles due on different days this month, one is due Oct. 17th and the other is due Oct. 28th, so I will be very busy trying to finish those up before my deadlines. He was a friendly guy who is only one year older than myself, which stunned me a bit, not sure why though. We talked about how I am to format the articles, the number of words for the articles and my compensation. As of now this an unpaid writing gig, but he said eventually he will be able to pay his writers (including myself) but for now he will be promoting my writing on all social media platforms (which I am just as excited about). Once my articles are published on his online magazine site, I will be able to share with all of you, so keep an eye out for them! In the meantime, I am still working on getting pitches ready for the Editor in Chief of Muscle and Fitness magazine, but this will take me some time so I can nail it this time around. 

I want to thank everyone for the continued support on my blogs and videos, I appreciate it! 

I will be sure to keep everyone updated throughout the process. 

Your fitness blogger,

Shay-lon xoxo

Hello! College graduate in exercise science and ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. My blog has all kinds of fun topics, something for everyone who is anyone that involves themselves with fitness. I like to think of fitness as a confidence booster, something to make us feel good and look good & pushes us to do things that make us feel more productive, unstoppable and stronger mentally and physically. My blog focuses on building people, and helping people see their true potential, while also sharing my journey with workouts, competing with powerlifting, and sharing how to's on workouts, so you step inside the gym with more knowledge. I don't know everything but I am on a voyage to build my character, my strength and work on my weaknesses --- with awesome people in my corner who support me and my goals. I plan on being your cheerleader, friend, coach and trainer all-in-one and most of all, I want to be your listener, the person who can listen and gain more knowledge about you and learn what makes fitness important to you; what's your why! (Your why will carry you to the finish line). It's important to have purpose for something, because you will need that purpose when you start to give up on yourself or want to quit. "Don't let the fire that guides you, dim" - Shay-lon Besides the fitness stuff, I reside in Ohio, love dogs and love pizza. Typical 26 year old trying to build an empire that brings out the best in others and makes me the best person I can be in all aspects in my life. Before I die, I want a reason to live, and I was given that reason each day I am able to wake up --- I have learned to not take life for granted and to explore as much as possible because to live with zero regrets would be fantastic! "I've conquered many things, but I still have much to learn about life, because nobody can know everything. & every battle is different" - Shay-lon
