I finally found a fitness magazine where I appreciate every article. I picked up a copy of Experience Life magazine for Kat while she was in the hospital, and ended up reading it cover to cover within minutes.
What I liked about it was that it focused on athletic-minded people looking to get more fit for a further function and not just for aesthetic reasons. In fact, especially NOT for those reasons. I liked that it focused on training questions, mindset questions, and other issues around how to lift a bar. The workouts in the book worked neatly with what I’m doing with Core Performance. And there weren’t any sensational grab articles about getting the best bikini body by June.
Man, I really hate the typical men’s offerings. I get Men’s Fitness (weak moment with door-to-door sales types), and there’s usually a *few* okay things in it, but essentially it’s Maxim with metal. I think the new staff are trying to shed that image a little, but time will tell.
Oh, and Oxygen scared me.
Great mag, that Experience Life. Check it out. It’s fairly cheap to get a few year’s worth, too. Twenty clams brings it all home. That’s the same as buying five issues off the newstand, only you get 20 or so… (I sounded like an ad, didn’t I?)
