As someone who has battled weight in the past I'm always looking for great ways to exercise and get into better shape. Even though I had lost 50 pounds I still felt like a fat skinny person, meaning that even though I was now thin my body and muscles were very soft. So I bough a subscription to Fitness magazine in hopes of learning some great ideas on new workouts and new diet secrets.
What I got was a monthly magazine that pretty much regurgitates information from one month to another. Quite often an article will promise how to tone up in four weeks (or something similar) and then fail to give you a realistic workout to obtain those goals (which aren't really obtainable in 4 weeks). They'll promise you an out home exercise routine that is comparable to a gym routine. The only thing is that you have to have some major equipment to be able to complete many of the workout routines.
Fitness magazine article comprise of a lot of empty promises. If you're really looking for a great workout then go online and do some research. Most of the information found in Fitness magazine can be found for free on the world wide web.
