Jennifer Nied

Adventure. Recover. Write. Repeat.

I’m Jennifer Nied, a New York City-based journalist with more than a decade of writing and editing experience. These days, I’m the Fitness Editor at Women’s Health magazine. That means I spend most of my day editing workout features for print and digital, brainstorming the next great idea or discovering talented trainers, and writing stories of my own.

I like to follow an adventure, recover, write, repeat formula. It has taken me to the serene shores of Lake Como, the formidable peaks in Alberta, an erupting volcano in Iceland, snow-covered slopes in the Sawtooth Mountains, and many more destinations with stories to tell.

In addition to fitness, reporting on adventure travel (especially winter sports), wellness, and spa all delight me. My words have appeared in Women’s Health, Marie Claire, Good Housekeeping, Prevention, Southern Living, SELF, The Spa Insider, Apartment Therapy, Budget Travel, Simplemost, and more.

I started at Women’s Health as a contributing writer in May 2019 (sweat changes EVERYTHING) after two years freelancing. Prior to pivoting to full-time freelance, I was senior digital editor for American Spa magazine. There, I covered the world of wellness, spa, and beauty for spa professionals for four years. I started my career with internships at SELF, InStyle, Marie Claire, Southern Living, and American Salon.

I believe there are stories all around and where you least expect them. Please explore around to learn more about what’s inspiring me, my latest work, and to get in touch.

When I’m not at my computer, you can find me exploring the mountains on my snowboard, training for my next marathon, or taking my dog for a stroll in Central Park.
