Fit maine advertising and sponsorships

Reach your people

Connect with active Mainers who want to hear about YOU. The Fit Maine audience is wildly interested in doing fun stuff that also happens to be good for our bods – from fun indoor fitness classes to challenging outdoor adventures. We’re not all hardcore athletes here, but we love trying new things, feeling strong, and making memories along the way. (And maybe stopping off at a brewery to cap off the day.)

In addition to the broader Fit Maine readership, the Fit Maine Social Club is an especially dedicated group of women and men who thrive on new and unique experiences and learning first-hand about cool ways to be active in Maine.

Let’s work together

Through engaging online content that’s crafted with personality (because this is fun stuff we’re talking about – it should be fun to read), Fit Maine can share the story of who you are and what you do.

There’s a whole world of engaging ways to do it, too: Stories, video, social media, contests and featured events, advertising and sponsorships (just to name a few). Let’s talk about what you’re up to and how Fit Maine can help spread the word. It all starts with getting in touch. Email Shannon Bryan at shannon@fitmaine.com

How do I get featured on Fit Maine?

Do you own a gym or studio? Teach yoga or strength or other fitness class? Lead group runs or rides? Or maybe you’re part of a local organization that maintains trails or hosts activities and you’d like to spread the word about what you’re up to.

– You can post EVENTS to the Fit Maine calendar at any time, for free. Simply go to the calendar page and hit the “post my event” button at the top. For event promotion, check out the Featured Event Promotion packages below.

– For PROMOTION on Fit Maine (or help with content for your own website), stories, photos, and video are an ideal way to highlight the work you do – and engaging content gets attention.

STORY + PHOTOS. I regularly check out classes, groups, and other activities to write about on fitmaine.com. In exchange, I typically do that work in exchange for a free or discounted class/experience for the Fit Maine Social Club. This can work in a range of ways, but it’s a win-win that gets “butts in seats” at your gym/studio, great coverage of your class or group online (including a story on fitmaine.com that’ll drive readers to your business for months and years to come, multiple social media shares, inclusion in the newsletter, and more).
