MAGAZINE: Nov/Dec 2008 Fitness

23 10 2008

I bought the November/December 2008 issue of Fitness today¬† ūüôā¬† This is a monthly magazine aimed at women in their 20s and 30s who are interested in fitness and living a healthy life.¬† Focused on publishing timely, well-written non-fiction articles, I love buying this magazine sporadically and mainly for doses of writing inspiration.¬† Being so entrenched in fitness, health, and well-being, what is common sense for one person can be completely foreign to somebody else.¬† There is such a wide spread range of health literacy it’s almost fascinating ( you can be sure I’ll be writing on this topic).

So when I pick up magazines like Fitness, I get a feel for what issues, concerns and events the average woman my age are thinking about and participating in.¬† It’s dubbed “reading with intention”. Writers influence one another and this capacity to nourish and be nourished by other writers is truly the great gift of the reader’s writing life.¬† And with Fitness Magazine, I feel confident that I can find many interesting articles to read and just as many article ideas to query on…

Topics I am interested in writing about right now include:

  • Sleep disorders (Why Can’t I Sleep?). I’ll be checking out the feature on “The New Way to Never Feel Tired” on p. 80
  • Energize & motivate me.¬† I’m hoping that the stress free 20 minute meals on p. 89 will give me the kick in the ass I need to go to the gym
  • Balancing a Busy Life (How to Juggle Different Hats). I’m looking forward to reading how 4 writers learned to manage negative self talk and love the skin their in on p. 121
  • Antibiotic resistant organisms (AROs). With winter around the corner, I am interested in the growing number of AROs such as E.Coli, C.Diff and MRSA.¬† (I’m still trying to figure out the difference!)¬† There’s no mention in this mag… hmmmm…

MAGAZINE: Sept/Oct Issue of Muscle and Fitness Hers

13 10 2008

I am a big fan of fitness magazines.¬† I like to subscribe, buy them, keep them and read them over and over for motivation.¬† A staple in my collection are issues of Muscle and Fitness Hers.¬† It’s¬†focused on fitness and health and the women that grace the pages of the magazine are in beautiful shape — not too skinny like fashion magazines and not too muscular to turn you off.¬† They are toned, feminine and sexy.¬† One Ohio reader raved, “Thanks for using models who epitomize the beauty of a naturally toned and muscular body.”

Aimed¬†at “women who want more out of fitness“,¬†the common theme is that you CAN fit fitness into your lifestyle and you SHOULD.¬† There’s no excuse¬†they don’t provide solutions for.¬† The layout is great with a balance of pictures, content, graphics and advertisements.¬† The information is varied, interesting, helpful and clear.¬†¬† And instructions¬†are easy to follow,¬†straight forward and motivating enough for me to want to try recommendations at my next meal and workout.
