Thank You and Goodbye
First and foremost, I want to thank you for either placing your blind faith in us by being a FitList customer, willing to try us out as a beta client, or using the platform to find a job.

Until today I have been trying to get two fitness sites off the ground - our job board fitlist.com and fitevents.com - an event discovery site and the only site of its kind to list all relevant fitness and endurance events in one place (please check it out!). 

I am not Elon Musk or Jack Dorsey (not yet anyway). I lack the bandwidth or capital to get two sites from zero to scale at the same time. While the traffic is admittedly flat for fitlist.com everything is pointing up and to the right at fitevents.com. A founder never has a clear answer when to shut an endeavor down but I believe the time is right to focus everything on the one that is kicking ass and I have made the decision to stop operating FitList. 

It's not just about dollars and cents for me. If that were the case I probably should have looked outside of fitness to build something.  As I was passionate about both fitness events and helping people find awesome jobs in the fitness and endurance space in both cases I built the platforms to scratch my own itch. 

I am confident I am building something unique on the event side. However, if I were to find a job in the fitness space now, I would point people to the team at Talent Hack. They are truly committed to the cause of connecting the fitness community with opportunities and talent.  Through them, I just found a great opportunity that I'm excited about.  They have been carefully and strategically growing their platform since 2015.

If you are interested in owning the fitlist.com domain name or site, it is up for auction at flippa with a starting bid of $1. 

Thanks again for your support and I look forward to seeing or meeting all of you in a random gym, on a trail or at an upcoming HYROX event (ask me about a gym discount for your team).   

Thanks,

Paul Buijs, fitlist.com
