Leaving Work Behind

How I Left Work Behind and Built a Profitable Fitness Blog

Written by Guest Author on May 1, 2014. 57 Comments

Tom: the following is a guest post by Henry Croft, the founder of a website you’re going to learn a lot about in this post. I’m seriously impressed with what Henry has managed to achieve in one short year – it just goes to show that blogging is far from dead as a means of making money online. Take it away Henry!

Do what you love what you doOn March 17th, 2014 my fitness blog GymTalk celebrated its first birthday.

Over the last year I have managed to grow the website from something which started out life as a bit of a laugh into a profitable online business which can now support me financially – just about!

In its first year GymTalk achieved:

Quitting my 9-5 job to earn a living online has been a tough journey full of missteps, sleepless nights and anxiety, but I do not regret a single day of it.

Although I still have a long way to go, the whole process has been a labour of love and doing something that I’m passionate about seven days a week has been a revelation.

The following is my story so far.


Henry CroftI left university in 2011 having studied English Literature as an undergraduate and postgraduate.

After a brief stint as a journalist at my local newspaper, I ended up at a small online marketing agency in south London. As I worked my way up from lowly copywriter to operations manager, I fell in love with the world of online marketing.

Although I enjoyed my job, I quickly realised that I wasn’t content working for someone else’s company and someone else’s dream all my life.

This gnawing desire to do something on my own was largely fuelled by some of the internet marketers that I was following at the time, namely Tom Ewer and Matthew Woodward. These guys were proving that making money online by doing something that you love was a viable option and I wanted a piece of the pie.

So, I asked myself, ‘What did I love? What did I want to make a living out of?’

Well that was easy – I have always loved fitness, be it swimming, running, weightlifting, whatever. Combine this with a love of writing and online marketing and the answer was staring me in the face.

And so, in March 2013, I purchased the domain name gym-talk.com, set up an embarrassingly basic WordPress blog, and a few days later published my first post.

Leaving My Job

I can trace the rather spontaneous decision to quit my job back to one YouTube video, which I was watching one morning in April (instead of doing work).

“Do what you love – no excuses” ~ Gary Vaynerchuk

This message really hit home, and being ever the impulsive fool, I immediately typed up my notice and handed it in to my boss there and then.

During my two month notice period I began to map out a plan for the next 12 months. I was going to take on freelance SEO work for a handful of clients to support myself financially while I took the plunge and attempted to build GymTalk into a viable business from scratch.

My girlfriend thought I was a fool for leaving a secure job, my parents had no clue what it was I doing (they still don’t), and I had countless “oh shit” moments during those first few weeks.
But I kept the faith.

Although I was taking a huge cut in earnings, I was confident of the medium to long term pay off of building brand equity.

I had seen others do it and I knew that I could do it too.

And after all, the risk wasn’t really that high; it’s not like I had a mortgage or a family to support.
Just an appetite for peri-peri chicken, protein shakes and Guinness – which is much cheaper fortunately.

By the time I left my job in early June I had managed to sign up five clients for SEO work.
Although this didn’t represent a huge amount of money, it was enough to support my basic needs while I started working on my website and my new life.

Establishing A Brand

During April and May – whilst still working at my old job – I had already put in a lot of work to establish the GymTalk brand.

For me, this would make or break the site. Before I even considered how to monetise the website, I wanted to first create something which people would genuinely enjoy and find useful.

I did this by:

Creating a Brand Personality

The gym/bodybuilding/fitness niche is very competitive and awash with lots of great content. To stand out, I needed to create something which was distinctive and had a unique voice.

I settled on creating a website which would be like the Top Gear of bodybuilding websites.
In other words, I wanted the tone to reflect having a chat with your mate down the pub.

So, although the content would be high quality, helpful and well-written, it would also be carpeted with knob gags, occasional f-bombs, pop culture, and irreverent commentary.
This tone would be reflected in design and ‘feel’ of the blog in addition to the content.

Creating a Content Strategy

Having thoroughly researched my niche via keyword research, competitor research and monitoring chatter on forums and social media, I discovered that the most popular kinds of blog content, in terms of traffic and interaction, were tips on training and nutrition, supplement reviews, and humour pieces.

In addition, I began to contact supplement companies to secure prizes for competition giveaways and I reached out to authority figures in my niche to see if they would be interested in working with me.

Hiring Writers

Although I loved writing, I knew that in order to regularly produce high-quality content I would need some help, otherwise I would burn out.

Having other people contribute content would allow me – in addition to fulfilling my client obligations – to spend more time managing and direction of the blog, networking, and improving my online marketing skill set.

When I started GymTalk I was lucky to have a couple of close friends – including a personal trainer, ex-national swimmer and pharmacist – who were just as much into fitness as I was.
Fortunately these guys were happy to write content and help me promote it. At first they wrote articles for free, but as soon as I was in a position to pay them, I did so.

Monetising The Brand

Once I was confident in the direction the brand was heading in, my next step was figuring out how to make money from the website.

Having devoured income reports from other bloggers over the last few months, I was fairly well versed in how to go about monetising websites, although I had no actual experience in it.
I decided I would accomplish this predominately with affiliate links to other companies in the fitness niche.

Over the last few years the supplement industry has really exploded, so this seemed like a sensible place to start.

I would use affiliate links to these supplement companies which would appear on supplement and product reviews and on the various deals and discounts that I would promote via the blog and social media.

Getting these affiliate links was a simple case of creating an account on Affiliate Window and signing up to the relevant advertiser programmes.

Building An Audience

So, now I had all this great content and the potential to make money, my next job was to get the website in front of people.

Unfortunately, despite what Matt Cutts and Google might tell us, the internet is not like Field of Dreams – “build it and they will come.”

From, working for an online marketing agency and following other bloggers, I knew that building an audience would be the toughest part of the gig.

So this is how I managed to drive a quarter of a million unique visitors to my website during its first year.


List Building

One of the first things I did on GymTalk was to create a mailing list using AWeber, as I knew that building up a list of loyal readers would be a solid long-term investment when it came to maintaining traffic levels.

To extract as many sign-ups as possible, I placed a prominent sign-up form in the sidebar and included further forms at the bottom of each post and in-line with the content.

Social Media

I created profiles on all the main social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Tumblr.

In addition to promoting my blog posts, I also engaged with my audience as much as possible on these platforms.

To boost reach, I also advertised on Facebook, automated posts on Twitter and posted content to multiple Google Plus communities in my niche.


I posted in a handful of bodybuilding forums where, in addition to occasionally promoting the blog via forum posts, I also included a link to GymTalk in my forum avatar.

This is a department I have been slacking in recently and something I need to work on in the coming year, as even from a few forum posts I have seen huge traffic surges.

Email Outreach

Another tactic I use to promote the blog, which I learned from this fantastic post over at Backlinko, is email outreach.

After producing content, I email websites in the fitness niche telling them about my new blog post.

By just telling other bloggers about your content and being polite, you’d be surprised at how many people are willing to link to you!

This is an example of a mention (and a link) I recently secured after a few minutes of friendly email outreach.


Using email and Twitter, I began building relationships with authorities in the bodybuilding and fitness niche, many of which I ended up interviewing for the site.

These guys would then go on to promote GymTalk and the interviews on their blogs and social media platforms, which resulted in huge traffic spikes and a ton of backlinks!

See this post, for example.

Guest Posting

Another bonus of networking is that people are very receptive to you guest posting on their blogs further on down the line.

I’m not talking about crappy guest posting solely for backlinks here.

I write super high-quality content – as if it were intended for my own website – which has the added benefit of me being able to share it on the GymTalk blog and social media platforms.

This is an example of something I recently wrote.


Over its first year of existence, the vast majority of GymTalk’s earnings have come from affiliate marketing.

The first affiliate sales began to trickle in during June and July.

As more content was published and GymTalk’s presence on social media and Google became more prominent, these sales gradually increased month by month.

Earnings peaked in January 2014, when the blog turned over £2,400 (~$4,000).

As far as costs go, they are (in addition to general hosting fees) largely twofold:

  1. Writers’ fees
  2. Facebook advertising

This amounts to generally a few hundred pounds per month.

Where I Am Now

Recently I have been working to monetise the website in ways other than affiliate marketing.
Throughout February I worked on creating the GymTalk Shop to sell a range of gym clothing, which launched in early March.

I have started small and kept overheads low by only creating a select range of men’s bodybuilding t-shirts.

The feedback so far has been great and while sales haven’t yet set the world alight, the result has been encouraging enough for me to start working on expanding the shop into women’s clothing and more designs.

I’m still not where I want to be in terms of earnings (I still do freelance SEO work so I can pay the bills), but I’m proud of how far I’ve come so far.

Moreover, I get a bigger kick out of people telling me how much they enjoy the website and the two awards the blog has won (Activate Nutrition’sBest Fitness Blogs 2013’ and Supplement Centre’sWinning Fitness Blogs’) than how much money I can make with it.

This alone gives me confidence in what I am doing.

The Future

Over the next 12 months, I have a good idea of which direction I want GymTalk to take.

In addition to developing other income streams such as the shop and more permanent advertising relationships, I’d like to work on drawing out the ‘community’ aspect of the website by introducing a forum and more user generated content.

Content-wise, my goal is to develop our YouTube channel with more video content (such as this) and launch a new series of gym reviews, which is a topic that has been suggested by many of our readers as there a deficit of such information online.

By growing the blog in these areas, my goal is more than double the turnover I have achieved in the first year, which will enable me to leave all client work behind and focus exclusively on GymTalk.

Wrapping It Up

Ultimately, I hope this post will inspire some of you guys – who are no doubt procrastinating at your dreary desk jobs while reading this (like I was) – to take the plunge and leave work behind.

However, it’s certainly not for everyone.

It’s tough not having a guaranteed pay packet at the end of the month, it’s hard work, stressful, and it does get lonely from time to time.

But for me, the rewards far outweigh the drawbacks.

Working on your own terms, having the freedom to travel when you want, doing what you love and building your own legacy is what it’s all about.

And as Stephen Kellogg said (I’m disappointed it wasn’t actually Tim from The Office), “It’s better to be at the bottom of the ladder you want to climb than half way up one you don’t.”

So go on, dream, take a risk, and have fun.

    Very inspiring post, especially for someone like me that has just started his blog. I just read a short ebook on Amazon that basically stated the same strategy that you took. It also mentioned that connecting with others in blogs and networking is the most effective way to generate traffic.

    From your personal experience, which methods of generating qualified traffic to your blog was most effective?

    • Henry
      May 2, 2014 at 5:28 pm

      Hi Jear

      Thanks for your comment 🙂

      The majority of my traffic comes from organic search, which tends to very targeted around topics that the site deals with, such as training routines, supplement reviews etc.

      So, in that respect, make sure your on-page SEO is on-point. Don’t get too obsessive with it, but make sure you do some keyword research and optimise your content (body text, H1s, meta-tags etc), otherwise you’ll be leaving a lot of targeted traffic on the table.

      Check out this article for more information.

      However, when it comes to generating a loyal readership (i.e. people that will return to your site again and again, leave comments, engage with you etc), then I would say that most of this demographic has arisen from the networking and connections I have made on other fitness blogs, Twitter etc.

      Hope that helps, and let me know if you have any more questions!

    The fitness industry is an incredibly tough market. You did some good research to decide and target your niche. Congrats on your success. You give others inspiration to continue because we see you succeeding in such a tough niche then I can succeed in my niche which isn’t anywhere as near as competitive.

      May 5, 2014 at 10:11 am

      Hi Jennifer

      Thanks for the kind words. You’re right, it is a very competitive niche. However, I think the fact that I entered it with a genuine passion for fitness rather than just targeting a niche because it seemed profitable worked in my favour.

    That’s an awesome journey that you have going on there. Great tips on how you grew engagement as well. What were you doing to automate twitter posts? I’ve been looking for some good ways to increase my social presence.

      Hi Josh

      Thanks for your comment. With regards to Twitter, I just use a WordPress plugin to Tweet a post from the archives each day. Once I’d built up a sizable following, this delivered a steady flow of traffic.

    Great post!

    How much traffic do you get from Google? Seems like a very competitive niche to get traffic from Google.

    • Sylvia
      May 7, 2014 at 7:14 pm

      That would be my question also. This is a very inspiring post, and I’ll have to re-read it to try to determine what Henry has done (is doing) to achieve so much in so little time.

      I too created my blog BusinessPlanMentor.com in a very competitive niche and have blamed that for my less than stellar Google ranking. It will be 1 year old this month and still struggling to find a bigger audience. The readers I do get are highly relevant from a forum I frequent. Without that forum it would be fairly dead in the water.

      My dream is to grow the site to the point where I could leave work behind, but it seems more and more like a pipe dream.

      Thank you Henry Croft for the boost in the arm I need! You have proved that with a lot of hard work it can still be done!!

        Hi Sylvia

        Thanks for the comment. I would recommend you do some very basic white hat link building to improve rankings. High quality blog comments and high quality guest posts with branded anchor text should help significantly – and they’ll also have the added benefit of sending you some nice referral traffic.

    • Henry
      May 16, 2014 at 5:04 pm

      Hi Rolf

      Around 50-60% of my traffic comes from Google, the rest is mainly social media referrals.

    Wow. Truly motivating. Not bad for a full year of hard work. Nothing more motivating then lack of Guinness funds. I hope to accomplish the same in the next 9 months. Still trying to shake the “shiny object” syndrome and stay focus. I’ve asked many people before they decide to pursue their niche, can they write at least 100 articles about it.

    The market I really enjoy is explaining and sharing with people how internet marketing works and show people how they can make money online. Any advice to a somewhat newbie on how to set myself apart in this highly competitive market or should I just chuck it and find something else to hang my hat on that is not as broad?

    • Henry
      May 16, 2014 at 5:14 pm

      Hi Phillip

      I would say the best advice I can give you is to find a voice which makes your brand unique and memorable. This is especially important in crowded niches such as health and fitness, where I work.

      Other than that, get stuck in, make mistakes, learn, and enjoy. It’s all part of the fun of online marketing!

    Thanks Henry!

    This post inspired me. I just became a full-time fitness blogger in March. I had to sell my personal training business because my husband got offered a job opportunity in Costa Rica. There are a lot of fitness blogs out there and trying to stand out can feel overwhelming. It was nice to read about your success. Congrats!

    Hey Henry, this was great.
    I’ve directed my blog/business primarily to the nutrition side of things and have been focusing on guest posting at the moment. Had you thought of making your own product, like an ebook/guide to supplements you could sell? I Think that would be a great fit for your site.

    thanks again

Gonna put in some work mostly after and before work to get it going …but thank you so much for the inspiration 🙂

    Thank you so much for this post! I just started a blog less than 2 months ago, also fitness related. The technical side of it has been rough. (I don’t want to think about how long and frustrating setting up the site was. Plus I’m clueless when it comes to SEO.) I want so badly to really put my all into it, but with a 5-year-old and a 10-month-old (who barely sleeps!) plus a part-time job from home, there just isn’t time (or energy)! But, I am determined, even though it might take a while. I know my talents and my passions, and with God’s blessing I will be able to combine them AND make a living in doing so. This really helps me in my journey. Thanks again for your insight! I’ll be staying tuned to GymTalk!

    Hello Henry,

    I stumbled upon this post while honestly slacking off with creating my own for the fitness website I have been developing. I was feeling a bit overwhelmed with trying to make my way into such a competitive niche that I am passionate about, but this post has opened up my eyes to see the possibilities of a future with more dedication to my website (and less slacking).

    Truly inspiring story and thank you for sharing.

    Great post Henry!

    Just want to touch about branding.

    While you’ve done a great job branding a really short domain, it’s not always the case for many. In fact, it’s probably one of the most challenging tasks in starting a blog, together with audience identification and building.

    I’m also trying to establish a fitness blog and has purchased about 5 domains already the past few weeks, but I haven’t really decided which one would be called home for my fitness/training tips (I do running, dieting and home fitness).

    That being said, do you think this is enticing enough for audiences like couch potatoes and intermediate fitness enthusiasts to join my tribe, if not, at least have a look at what I’m trying to share?


    As of this writing though, I’m still chasing it but I believe it’s just a matter of time before I’ll finally stop chasing.

    Just like what you’re doing, I’ll be giving great contents within my blog and reaching out politely to authorities like you and Tom for equally great, if not better, contents.

    By the way, thanks Tom for letting Henry write for your blog. Appreciate your thoughts as well.

    Hi such an inspiring post! I’ve always wanted to start a fitness/lifestyle blog myself, not so much about training and supplements, but more about inspiring to help those like me who are still overweight and want to do something about it. This post has just pushed me forward to take that leap of faith and just do it!

    I am currently training myself, still really overweight but I’m starting to see improvements. I really want to help those in similar positions like me and just want inspire them to start making some better choices for their health. Do you feel that would be a good place to start from?

    Wow! I’m super impressed with your motivation, and your method to your madness. I too am in the process of writing a fitness related blog. I will have to agree that this is a super competitive niche. I see there is so much content out there, most of it terrible, rehashed information. Its too bad there isn’t much original content out there on some of these websites! I must say reading post like these are inspirational, and helps me when I feel like it isn’t going to work. The only way I will know something will work is to try it regardless. One of my favorite hobbies is fitness, and I am really good at writing, and anything to do with literature. Sometimes, I feel as if there is too much content out there that my blog won’t make a dent in the competition. But like I said previously, I won’t know until I try! Thanks, for the write up! Thanks for a boost in motivation.

    Much love, and support!
