A review of Women's Health magazine

Women's Health magazine is published ten times a year in the USA and it is all about women's lifestyle. This piece reviews the magazine's content and how to subscribe to it.

Basic facts

Women's Health is published by Rodale Press, which publishes nine magazines in total and deals in 47 different countries worldwide. The magazine was originally a partner to Men's Health magazine, but later found its own. It now has a readership of 1.5 million in the USA. What is the magazine about? According to the website (Womenshealthmag.com), the magazine is primarily for women who have low confidence, and who are interested in lifestyle issues but are sensitive to media pressure found in other health and fitness magazines.
