Hello there my fitness focused sea changers. With over 4 million searches each month on the term fitness alone, online sales within this industry have been steadily rising over the past few years. This makes it a very promising field of entry for affiliate marketers and industry professionals keen to ply their trade in an online world. So with that, I have decided to chip in for the assist with an outline of 10 of the best fitness affiliate programs in 2020.

Do You Need Help With Your Online Business?
See how over 2 million affiliate marketers (including myself) are making money by using my recommended affiliate training.

Includes step by step lessons with live help and training. Oh and you can host your site here too...

Now, before we begin, fitness is a huuuuuge niche on its own so choosing just 10 was not an easy task. To be honest, at the end of the day, I have chosen them simply by looking at:

  • Commission rates
  • Payment terms
  • Cookie duration
  • Application processes
  • Affiliate/Marketing materials provided

I have then tried to find a diverse range that covers most aspects of selling fitness programs online. If you wish to find programs more targeted to whatever it is that you do within the industry, check out the section at the bottom of this page on how to find your own affiliate programs (click on the link within the table of contents below to go straight there if you wish).

For now though, let's check out the 10 that I came up with…

Others

Now, as I have mentioned, the fitness niche is massive and I have chosen the 10 above to give you an insight onto what there is and how it all works. That is not to say that there aren't others out there that are as good, or fit closer to your own niche as well (see next section). If you are looking for branding, you can also find affiliate programs from some of the major brands including (and again – a very small cross section):

To locate, simply type ‘brand affiliate into your favourite search engine.

How to find your own affiliate programs

As discussed above, as fitness is such a large niche, you may need to find affiliate programs that better suit what it is that you are trying to do within this space. Luckily for us, there is a simple way to find these programs online. All you need to do is enter “affiliate: niche type” into your search engine. (obviously substituting ‘niche type‘ for whatever product it is that you are choosing to sell).

Below are some examples:

How to Sell Fitness Workouts Online - affiliate weights

Or targeted sports:

Best Fitness Affiliate Programs 2019 - soccer affiliate

Or even a particular exercise type:

Best Fitness Affiliate Programs 2019 - zumba affiliate

There are affiliate programs for everything else such as weightloss, diet, Pilates, cardio exercise and so on. Once you have completed your searches, you can search through and find programs that:

  • Relate to your niche/problems that you are solving.
  • Have quality products – your brand can be severely damaged if you promote poor quality product.
  • Have solid payment and customer service arrangement.
  • Pay decent commissions.
  • Have good testimonials covering commission payouts and quality of product.

In most cases, you will need to apply for the program before you are allowed to promote their products – don’t take this step lightly or you will be rejected. Affiliate programs will generally want to know:

  • Your website name.
  • Traffic levels.
  • Why you want to join – (so I can make money by selling your fitness products is unfortunately not generally a good enough answer).
  • How you plan to promote their products.
