    I bought my very first copy of fitness, intrigued by the contraddicting viewpoints. Personally, I like it. It’s rare for me to find a magazine that has it all, most women magazines are either too shallow (only fashion and makeup) or too “homey” (cooking, house decorating, Martha Stewart style). I am 25, so I like fashion news and makeup suggestions, but because I am also married and have a child, I am interested in recipes and health. Additionally, I like to keep in shape so I like to keep informed on the latest great fitness videos and workouts. And to keep in shape, you always need some motivation, and the success stories featured in the mag are of great help. This magazine has it all. And that’s why “Fitness” is probably not the peftect title, but more like “Women’s Best” or something, unless there is already a magazine with this title!

    But afterall, who cares? The title doesn’t really matter, what matters is the content, and this magazine’s content is good.

    I read Fitness for the first time about a year and a half ago… and I liked it. So I subscribed to it for two years. Well, a year into it, I’ve decided it’s just not for me. See, if you’re like me, wanting to gain something out of reading a fitness magazine involves knowledge of how the muscles work, when to work them, what nutrients are best for them, and basic health, because let’s face it ladies, even if you DON’T have a degree in biology, you know losing weight and staying healthy involves a lot more than a fashionable pair of hot pants or just a few crunches. You have to understand your body – each person requires different exercises and different diets (by which I mean different types of foods, not an actual act of dieting) in order to look their best. So, if you want to gain the education you REALLY need to lose weight or stay healthy, Fitness isn’t what you need. They’ve got great ads for great fashions and great UNREALISTIC looking exercise models (who personally don’t have “perfect abs” or “sexy arms” – they look like size 4 girls that haven’t lifted a weight since high school gym class). A magazine like Fitness Rx is LOADED with information and women who look like they really work for what they look like – something we all have to do in order keep our figures.

    I love FITNESS. While I am not one of the perfectly proportioned size 6 models they almost always use, I AM a more fit and healthy person because of the motivation I have gotten from this magazine.I have gone from a size 14 to a 10 with the help of exercise and nutritional tips I’ve gotten from this magazine.I love to read the inspiring success stories of others who have reached their fitness goals.
    I finally realized that if I put in the effort I too could be strong and healthy even if I am not tiny like a super model.
    FITNESS has exercise routines that you can do at home that don’t require lots of expensive equipment or a gym membership.I like the make up and fitness clothing articles too.
    Overall FITNESS is a magazine for those that need motivation and information on how to get and stay healthy and have fun while getting there.

    If you enjoy reading the National Geographic, or enjoy going to museums, or like the Discovery Channel I would recommend subscribing to this magazine.

    The feature articles in the Smithsonian are enlightening and well researched. The feature articles often take place internationally. Recent articles have whisked me away to Morocco, Egypt, London. I look forward to receiving the Smithsonian every month.

    Pros
    - Feature articles are uninterrupted by ads.
    - International feature articles
    - Printed on quality paper

    Smithsonian used to be informative and intriguing. Now it looks like any other pop culture mag. A whole issue on food?? I can go to Cuisine for that. Articles in this current issue (May) look depressingly like People and the new version of Time–slick, clever, shallow, “with it.” That’s not what Smithsonian was all about–it dealt with varied topics that surprised. I can get shallow by turning on the TV or watching the Huffington Post. Won’t be renewing.

    Previous review from April 2012: Smithsonian Magazine used to be thick and full of intelligent articles. It’s been stripped down and dumbed down. Disappointed. Will not renew.

    Update Nov 2012: Glad to say that the latest issues have been very rewarding, things seemed to have turned around with the newish editor. Am pleased!
