The Barbell Spin Contributor Network

Get your voice heard by our dedicated community of CrossFitters, Weightlifters and Powerlifters!


The Barbell Spin is looking for writers who are passionate about CrossFit, Olympic Weightlifting and Powerlifting. Whether you are a coach, athlete, doctor, nutritionist or just a fan of the “barbell” sports, we want you to share your voice with our loyal visitors.

Why Should You Participate?

As CrossFit, Olympic Weightlifting and Powerlifting continues to grow – both as a training method and as a sport – there is a growing demand for high-quality content. If you are a coach or an athlete in your sport, your experiences have given you a unique perspective and different insights than others in the community. If you are a doctor or nutritionist, the community can benefit from your expertise. And if you are a fan of these sports, you likely have an opinion on the current events.

Your unique insights and perspective can benefit others in the community.

ALL contributors to The Barbell Spin have the opportunity to earn some $$$ and free swag as part of the Contributor Network Incentive Program. If you’re interested in making a career out of journalism or just want to share your unique experiences with a broader community, The Barbell Spin’s Contributor Network is a great platform to get your name out there.

What We’re Looking For

We want informative articles that will benefit the community – whether it pertains to the “sport” or the “training” aspects of CrossFit, Olympic Weightlifting or Powerlifting. We have a list of topics we are looking for, but YOU decide what they want to write about.

We definitely prefer original content, but will republish previously published work occasionally.

We are looking to grow our loyal audience. We are not looking for just pageviews. Instead, more emphasis is placed on creating a devoted audience that returns to the site to catch up on the barbell sports. The Contributor Network Incentive Program awards those who are able to build an audience that returns to the site.

How It Works

Once you sign up (form is below), you can submit any article you’d like, whenever you like. You will also be invited to join The Barbell Spin’s Contributor Network Facebook Group. Here, we will periodically pitch ideas for content we are looking for.

You can post as often as you like. There are no deadlines or any requirement to pitch a story idea. At the bottom of each article you contribute, we will display a short 2-3 bio with links to your social media or website.

Payments and Perks

Yes! All contributors are eligible to participate in the Contributor Network Incentive Program. Contributors are paid based on the number of unique visitors that visit their articles with extra emphasis placed on attracting return visitors. In addition to CPM, Contributors also have the ability to earn more when visitors make purchases via our Rogue Fitness Affiliate Program.

Contributors can make as much as $5.00 CPM, not even counting the Rogue Fitness Affiliate Program.
