Stay Informed and Motivated with Health Magazines

Men’s Fitness MagazineWe all know getting into the workout groove is half the battle. Whether it’s from lack of motivation or not knowing where to begin, a health and fitness magazine subscription is a good way to stay on track and to keep you positive.

I like Men’s Fitness because it is a great source for fitness, diet, and health advice. Each issue has articles on exercise routines, nutritional plans, and weight loss. There is always at least one article on “how to lose 5 pounds in 2 weeks” or “how to lose 10 pounds by Easter.” They provide a day-to-day workout and diet breakdown with just enough scientific explanation for the average person to understand.


Many of my teen years included me reading a wide assortment of bodybuilding magazines. I learned a lot of information from them. Personally I changed the way I eat and workout from reading some of the articles. Some articles even tell you which foods to avoid, eat, and why. They’ll even throw in recipes for delicious healthy food.

I like to look for discounts when I order subscriptions. I usually buy them at the local Wal-Mart, but always think to myself that it’s cheaper to just subscribe yearly for the cost of a few magazines that you would buy individually. I came across a site is offering magazine subscriptions for a good discount. Discount Mags has a large library of health and fitness magazines, I already put in my order for Men’s Fitness, Muscle & Fitness, and Shape (for the misses).

It’s always good to add to your health knowledge arsenal. Which health magazines do you read or subscribe to?

      Hi DM, I was googling around for some discount health magazine sites and yours stood out. Hope it’s not a problem that I linked it…

        Not a problem. I’ve actually gone ahead and created some coupon codes for your readers. They’ll be able to pick up Shape or Men’s Fitness for $7.00 using the codes UNLEASH-S and UNLEASH-MF, respectively.

    I am a big fan of Men’s Journal Magazine. It gives me encouragement to prep for journeys. It gets me out of the crib and doing things. I think magazines can be great for motivation. Also having mags that are not just ads on top of ads is good… Great offer DM. I might have to jump on that. Men’s Journal is also at a great rate as well.
