What's Your Favorite Health Magazine?

What's Your Favorite Health Magazine?

I love reading health magazines. They're perfect for long car rides, flights, or just when I'm sitting on the couch on a Sunday. They've got great tips on new exercises and recipes, and I love the motivational stories that inspire me to keep working out. Everyone has their favorite health mag, so what's yours?

I've subscribed to soooo many in that list before. "Health" magazine and "Fitness" magazine are the only two of the list that have consistently held my attention. It seems like so many fitness magazines these days will just print any old crap that oughtta be in Cosmo instead.

muscle & fitness hers is by far the best out of all the magazines i've read...it actually encourages you to use substantial weight, instead of resistance bands and swiss balls and 5-pound dumbbells. and they have awesome healthy recipes, too. plus the women look healthy, instead of the other magazines where you can tell they just got skinny models to pretend to be lifting weights.

I love Oxygen, Health & Fitness, Low Carb Energy, Low Carb Nutrition, and there is this other one that is slipping my mind at the moment because it went out of business after like 3 editions, which STINKS! I do love all the mags listed above though, except for the Yoga one, because I am not a Yogi! These magazines SAVE ME at the gym!!!

I just started getting Fitness, but I didnt know there was a Woman's Health. I may have to start getting that too! I don't really like Shape or Self, I find them too fluffy. I get Vogue, I don't need to talk fashion, makeup, etc. in my fitness mags (although Fitness mag is a bit guilty of this too).

I like Fitness, but I also read Shape and Self because they're a little less intimidating. I do like Women's Health and Fitness too though. It's got some great stuff in it and it's a lot more hardcore than most other women's magazines. One that I don't read too often is Cosmo...it's too demeaning to women (if you don't believe me, read the lists of "things to do to please your man". Some of that stuff is JUST WRONG).

Love Shape and have for years, although I think the last editor was better. I recently stopped reading Self when I realized it was taking me about 10 minutes to read the entire magazine each month. Pages and pages of common sense. I do like the Self Challenge, though.

Fitness RX for Women is my absolute favorite! It offers blurbs about recent studies, offers great recipes and work-outs. I definitely like it way more than the other health mags!

Women's Health, but sometimes I want a little more "fluff," and I'll also pick up Self or Shape.

I really like Health — it's not the most hardcore fitness magazine by far, but it has a friendly tone and some great recipes.

i havent really read Shape before but i love SELF! i enjoy all the tips they have each month for fitness and beauty, etc. I also like there "if you have 3 extra minutes" section where they give ideas to do with a couple extra minutes.

Fitness RX always has great up to date info and quite scientific at times. Oxygen is great for hard core workout and eating plans. Self is a well-balanced fitness-lifestyle mag but doesn't go very deep into anything. Still it's always informative and occupies my time on the elliptical trainer. The rest, like Fitness, and Shape really don't bring anything new to the table it's all quite basic and fine for beginners but after a year or two it's time to graduate to the more in-depth publications

I used to read shape and self but didn't like them much because I felt they were too much like Cosmo and Glamour with maaaybe a couple more fitness articles. I got fed up and started reading men's health. Then ever since Women's Health came out I've really liked it, so I get that.
