My roommate picked up a Men's Fitness magazine last week and I was reluctant to read it due to the bad things I've heard about it. Many of my female friends refer to the magazine as a "male version of comso" and I think I have to agree with them.
The magazines focus is on exercise, nutrition, sports, style, and women. Many of the articles centre on males getting into better shape, and tips how to pick up women. One of the great aspects of the magazine is that they interview a lot of professional sports stars covering a whole array of sports. In the issue I have there is an interview with a UFC fighter, a NHL goalie, an X games athlete, and an NBA player. The diversity of interviews are very entertaining as it looks at different fitness aspects of different sports. The fitness aspect of the magazine is very well written. They often provide simple, unique work out routines that for the most part are very effective when performed properly.
While the sports and fitness section are very well written I tend to find that everything else is little over the top and exaggerated. Many sections of the magazine focus on male and female interaction, how to pick up women, how to dress properly, etc... While these sections are mildly they are not something I'm interested in when I buy a fitness magazine.
Like all magazines now-a-days there is an excess amount of advertisements which I personally think takes away from the magazine. Even though I don't enjoy every aspect of the magazine I do find it to be rather entertaining and have some useful fitness information. I wouldn't strongly recommend it to someone instead I would recommend that everybody should read the magazine and draw their own conclusions.
