What is Happening with Fitness magazine?

I am not sure if you all have heard but Meredith Publishing bought Shape magazine so Fitness starting in May will be digital-only. That means this will be the next-to-the last issue of Fitness reviewed on this Blog. This is a sad day but let’s be grateful that we will still get new content from the editors in the future—it will just be online.

Anyhoo—let’s talk about the March issue which is on newsstands now!

What Do We Learn This Month in Fitness?

“Chisel and Zizzle”

I am dying to learn how to use ropes in my classes so I loved this express workout from Gold’s Gym trainer Adam Friedman that give six moves using ropes.

“Hot Stuff: The Goods We’re Obsessing Over Now”

Fitness has a whole page here filled with cute gear that gets me excited for Spring. The Cole Haan slippers are especially divine!

“Go Vertical”

If you are looking to kick up your workout—try taking the stairs. Here we get two options (staircase vs. stairclimber) to get in a quick workout that gives fast results from Chris Powell.

“In the Hot Seat”

Four years ago I attempted a big change in my life by working at a standing desk (plus my wobble board to work on my core!) Sitting for hours a day is KILLING us and we need to act now in order to prepare office workers in the future.

Check out some of these options to make your office healthier!

And now the rest of this issue of Fitness:

  • “Fake Wide Awake” I love lotions and potions and lately my skin has been looking dull so I liked this feature offering ideas to brighten my face.
  • “Get a Fierce Physique” Trainer and author Adam Rosante offers an excellent workout here that you can do very quickly and see results in no time.

Overall Grade:

B+ Some really great workouts are featured here (just wish they had more features!)

  1. Interesting that they are going digital–I think there is definitely a trend towards that, but I love sitting down with a magazine…it’s relaxing in a way that screen time isn’t. #oldschool Those slippers are super-cute!

  2. Oh no! I didn’t know it was going digital-only. I don’t like that at all. I read in the morning with my breakfast and I keep a pretty strict no-gadgets rule until work. It’s so nice to keep that morning time relaxing and electronic-free.

  3. I stopped subscribing to both SHAPE and FITNESS a while ago. They became glorified beauty magazines to me. I then exclusively orders Muscle HERS and Oxygen but some of those mags publish so infrequent I can’t recall if I missed an issue or not.

    I need that stand up desk – my back is killing me with all of the sitting FOR REAL!

  4. Well I’m so glad I read that Fitness is going digital. I actually did get to my March issue but most of last year is still in a pile (I do go back and read them or tear out routines). I know I’ve been blessed with several free years and have purchased subscriptions too. I think they gave them free with some 10 Minute Solution DVDs, a while back. I have stacks of fitness routines I’ve torn out. It was a favorite to take to the gym for treadmill workouts. I only have Runner’s World as a current digital subscription in my Zinio digital library, but have many back issues of Shape and Muscle & Fitness and other mags so I do enjoy the digital issues. I’ll have to get to those–thanks again!

  5. You are so interesting! I do not suppose I’ve truly read a single
    thing like that before. So good to discover someone with original thoughts on this topic.
    Seriously.. thank you for starting this up. This website is one thing that’s needed
    on the web, someone with a little originality!
