Editorial Process

We’re making it our responsibility to navigate through the health and fitness market, providing our readers with only the most accurate, results-driven information.

Unfortunately, we live in a generation where more or less anyone can put pen to paper and promote risky practices that can ultimately negatively affect your health.

At Fitness Volt, we care about what works for you, and safety is always top of mind. Everything you read on our site has been written and researched by the experts on the Review Board.

Here’s a detailed overview of Fitness Volt’s editorial process.

1. Topic Selection

We start by picking what to cover. From breaking news to workout tips, we’re open to it all.

Your interests – and our own – guide our choices at every turn.

2. Research

Once we’ve picked a topic, it’s time to hit the books – and the gym. We pour over reliable sources for information. From peer-reviewed studies to expert opinions, we look far and wide.

Our aim is always to give you the most accurate insights.

3. Drafting

With research in hand, it’s time to start writing. We focus on keeping you engaged – from start to finish.

You might be a pro athlete. Or you might just be getting back into the gym after some time off. It doesn’t matter. Our content is geared to be accessible for everyone, everywhere.

4. Review and Verification

Before anything goes live, we double-check (and triple-check) everything. That means dotting our i’s and crossing our t’s.

We review for scientific accuracy, and verify any product claims. We want to give you the right info – 100% of the time.

5. Editing and Publication

Next up, our editors polish things up. They review for readability and consistency with our style guide.

It’s not enough, in our opinion, for content to be correct. It should also easy to read –and talk about.

Our editorial process leads to a final review. Once it’s been given the green light, the content goes live.

From idea to publication, we leave no stone unturned.

Continuous Monitoring and Updates

Our editorial team constantly updates our articles with new information and research, making sure you always have access to the latest and most reliable information.

We work hard to correct or clarify outdated or imprecise details. Users are able to view an update timeline for articles that have been extensively edited.
