Product Description


Who Reads Men’s Health Magazine?
Men’s Health readers are active, successful, professional men who want greater control over their physical, mental and emotional lives. They are looking for in-depth reporting on everything from fashion and grooming to health and nutrition as well as cutting-edge gear, the latest in entertainment and more.

What You Can Expect in Each Issue:

  • Fitness: Men’s Health knows total body fitness is not accomplished during the hour or two you spend at the gym three days a week. That’s why, in addition to the removable workout poster included in every issue, we also write about what you should be doing outside the gym, like catching the right amount of Z’s. And no, five hours per night is not enough.
  • Nutrition: Quick and easy recipes paired with advice that will help you live longer and healthier. Our editor’s even throw in a selection from Eat This, Not That each month because we know life is too busy to never eat fast food.
  • Sex & Relationships: Women are one life’s many mysteries, which is why Men’s Health is here to help. Our editor’s cover everything from how to bulletproof your relationship and keep your sexual attraction revved up to how to be her best ever. Need a specific question answered? Write to The Girl Next Door, editor Nicole Beland who sheds female insight on your most complex situations.
  • Health: Our editors comb through the latest health news and report on topics most relevant to men like how to protect your prostate, lower your cholesterol and protect your manhood.
Feature Articles:
  • Style Guide: Our editors take you step by step through the best new products and looks that will help get you out the door looking your best.
  • Eat This, Not That! At the Supermarket: What you don’t know about your local market is making your fat. Men’s Health investigates how stores dupe you into paying top dollar for unhealthy foods. It’ll forever change the way you shop.
  • How Fit Are You? : Men’s Health rounded up top athletes who set the bar in terms of speed, endurance, power, and agility and asked them how they got to the top. We know their secrets, now you can too.

Customer Reviews:

  • Ok on the surface level, thin on content and true facts once you dig deeper
    I picked up a copy of Men's Health when I was at the height of being a work out zealot last year and it seemed like a complete and utter revelation. Tips about diet, work out plans, zillions of factoids to confirm I was on the correct track. I was hooked, bought the next edition and after that got my years subscription.

    The bottom line? I quit reading after about six months - I felt like there were only so many 'I was fat and now I am thin' articles I can read and I felt the emphasis on some diet aspects, herbs and unproven substances was a bit suspect once I dug deeper into the research. They put a huge emphasis on protein in the diet when the bottom line is most Western diets have more than enough and there is a substantial body of evidence leaning toward the fact that high protein diets lead to a lessened flow of blood to the heart. Frankly I pulled out a food pyramid from the government, went to the gym a ton, lost 40lbs within a few months. No fancy herbs, no supplements, no major pain. There are no revelations within its covers and in essence you are paying money for questionable advice and to be advertised at.

    If you really want to know about Nutrition get a copy of Understanding Nutrition - Textbook Only, and stick to the exercise tips in Men's Health at best. Men's Health is no substitute for common sense, as it is my subscription is half unopened and gathering dust in the corner. For strength training check out Strength Training Anatomy. Eat a balanced diet, get your exercise -- save some trees and some cash in the long run.

  • Mens Health Subscription
    Be careful with this company... I recieved a card in the mail for a gift membership to this magazine. I thought it would be a cool gift so I filled the card out as an interested party. They started sending the magazine without recieving any money from me to start the subscription... well after thinking about it I decided not to do it so I did not want to pay for it. They continued to send it I thought in error... Now over a year later they send me a collection letter from a collection compnay for the 19.95 subscription fee. Why would a company send a product before being paid.. to rip off customers. OK magazine but I would not bother with this company ever....more info
  • Sad demise
    Men's Health used to be a top-notch magazine with great writers and helpful and innovative articles for all men. Writers like Greg Gutfeld and Denis Boyles gave the magazine a sharp wit and truly made the magazine a stand-out. They turned up their noses at political correctness and wrote what most others wouldn't dare. The writers were real men (and women) who weren't afraid of putting their reputations on the line. They told it like it was, not how the advertisers wanted you to hear it.

    However, they're all gone and all that's left is an emaciated skeleton of articles that are not interesting, innovative, or remotely intelligent. In fact, the only men I know who look at it now are my gay friends, for the great pictures of muscles on the cover and inside. But they, also, are too smart and savvy to waste their time on the lame articles. I don't know what happened to the management of that magazine, but somebody made some devastating decisions. I've never seen a magazine go from being truly one-of-a-kind to just a faceless jumble of paper and staples among the crowd. If you want articles on fitness, almost any other magazine will be better than Men's Health. The newest teeny bopper rag will have deeper articles on relationship than Men's Health. They assume the average guy is extremely insecure and has a sub-standard IQ. This magazine had a great thing going, and they blew it. Big time. Don't waste your time or money....more info

    I bought this for my boyfriend because he kept taking my Cosmo magazine. It has great articles for guys and for their girlfriends....more info
  • still the best
    I have been reading MH since it came out and I still find it enjoyable and entertaining. The tidbits of information, the suggestions on fashion and health and the articles are always well documented, well written and interesting. Over the years I have seen it emulated but few, if any, can compete with it. I would pick over the fluffed up GQ and Esquire any day (besides, who gives a rat about what Hollywood thinks about this or that)....more info
  • A "Woman's Magazine" for Men
    The publishers of "Men's Health" have hit on a very successful formula, one that they've taken right from the pages of any number of women's magazines found on the rack at the supermarket. Each issue is devoted to stroking the egos of the middle-aged readers while selling them tons of useless "lifestyle" cloting, toys and cosmetics that they can justify by telling themselves it's all about their healthy lifestyle.

    No stars....more info

  • Yes, beware of Rodale books
    I was a subscriber to Men's Health for a year. My year ended at the same time the magazine published its tacit endorsement of Barack Obama in its November 2008 issue. I did not believe that a cigarette smoker who spent his youth smoking marijuana and snorting cocaine was an appropriate man to promote in a health magazine. The same issue also attacked several conservatives and Republicans. (Oddly, a poll in that issue showed that 42% of the magazine's readers identified most with the GOP, while just 18% identified most with the Democrat Party.) Therefore, I chose not to renew my subscription.

    I never received a postcard such as one reviewer said he received. However, several weeks after I notified Men's Health that I would not be renewing my sub, I received a package with two books and a note that read, "As promised when you ordered Men's Health Magazine, your 21-day free preview of Men's Health Total Fitness Guide 2009 has arrived."

    First, I did not receive such a "promise" when I signed up for a subscription more than a year ago. Second, I would not accept a subscription with such a "promise." And, third, I wrote Men's Health on November 10 to let them know that I did not wish to renew my subscription.

    I just e-mailed customer service and told them that if they want their books back, they need to mail me payment to cover shipping and handling. ...more info
  • pleasantly surprised
    I bought the subscription for my husband because he wanted it. I thought it would a less sleazy version of Maxium, not to trash Maxium, but come on. Anyways, I was pleasantly surprised because not only did my husband love the magazine, I also ended up reading it and getting health and diet tips. We now have a magazine we can actually have a conversation about....more info
  • I only recieved 3 issues of htis magazine
    I do not recomend ordering mens health through Amazon.com

    I signed up for the whole year through amazon and paid in full. I started recieving the magazine immediatly. Its now been like 10 months and I have only recieved 3 issues. since then I have not received a single issue

    great magazine if Amazon could get their orders to go through correctly and customers were assured they would actually get the MAGAZINE. ...more info
  • Slow delivery of magazine
    I subscribed to the magazine in December of 2003 and did not receive the December 2003 or January 2004 issues until the beginning of February 2004, at which time both magazines arrived together (and only after I e-mailed Men's Health about it). And now it is the end of March and the March 2004 issue has still not arrived!
    Other than that, Men's Health is an informative magazine, with good fitness information (if you apply it)....more info
  • Why it is still a great investment
    Men's Health is one of the most popular men's magazines because it meets the various expectations and needs of the modern man. You simply have to know about fitness, dieting, supplements, fashion, gadgets, etc. The annual subscription makes it a bargain and you get so much information for a few bucks. One of the most interesting sections is the one dedicated to bedroom activities. The tips are definitely useful and yet I highly recommend in addition the bestseller "scientfically guaranteed male multiple orgasms and ultimate sex" for the latest secrets in this area. Another key feature of the magazine is that it motivates you to stay healthy, lean and fit. There are weight loss tips, advice on how to eat and exercise in order to see results fast. This is important part of keeping sharp appearance. Overall, I can reasonably say that you will learn a lot, have fun reading it and most probably it will help you up to a certain limit to be a good looking man and great lover....more info
  • Was More Consistent A Couple Of Years Ago.
    This magazine offers plenty for its readers. Various advice on career issues, fitness, financial planning, sex, nutrition, style, weight loss, time management, and even recipes. It is clearly accessible and brief in its execution. Which is fine, since life can get rather hectic nowadays. It is somewhat similar to "Mens Journal." But, with far more attention on health and fitness. I deduct 1 star because it was better written in the past. Still, it is the best mens magazine available today....more info
  • great!
    I ordered these for my boyfriend and we both love them! There are so many great articles..not just a bunch of advertisements like most magazines are....more info
  • Weak, but it does have Joe Quenan
    Not a great magazine. They do now have Joe Quenan after the mororn who runs GQ now fired him. Workout articles can be found for free on the Menshealth website or other forums. Fashion is ok, realisticly priced (at least for me:). Maybe most importantly, it's NOT a sexist and misogynistic magazine such as FHM, Details, etc. They have some mindless fiction each month, also. I just wish someone could put it all together: fashion, fitness, current events....more info
  • Not what is used to be...
    When it first came out, Men's Health was a health magazine. Now it is a mildly amusing waste of paper. There is rarely anything new or revolutionary in it. They keep rehashing the same "health" news, and keep adding more and more articles about sex. The humor is nice, but not enough to make up for a lack of real health articles....more info
  • sneaky
    I was a subscriber for several years and have terminated my subscription due to the november obama lovefest. I didn't think it was neccesary to endorse a political figure in a magazine devoted to health and fitness especially one that was a drug user and smoker. Then one day a package of books arrived in the mail for a free trial that I did not order. I had 21 days to preview and return if I did not want them. Cost me $$$ and time to return. Not happy. ...more info
  • men health magazine
    I haven't recieved a single copy so I can't really review it. All I can say is the amazom service is terrible....more info
  • Information overload
    First let me say, the vast majority of men in the US, need to read this magazine. Why three stars? Simply put, MHM overloads you with too much information, without putting it together in a bigger picture. Should I really be excited to hear some pop icon or actor's workout every month? And if you expect to afford the clothes in this magazine, you should be earning $100k a year.

    Something else that bothers me about MHM, is the magazine still debates the roles of alcohol, beef, pork, marijuana, coffee, and processed foods in seeking optimum health.

    The magazine never forgets to issue advice on every sort of interpersonal/social situation, and if your a little slow, I guess you need it. On the other hand, if you meditate and have some degree of intuition, you don't need all that advice, it's common sense.

    MHM and Rodale press could just publish one workout book every decade, as "breakthroughs" don't happen very often in the realm of physical training. Just look at the US military. Also, who knows how much money the beef industry pays Rodale, let alone all the other products they "recommend".

    My problem with Men's Health Magazine is it's role, to make money. Despite these setbacks, and considering the widespread obesity in America, I'm glad to see this magazine on the shelves. If you want to be as healthy as possible, get Paul Pitchford's Healing with Whole Foods....more info
  • Must Have
    If you're interested in your health and well being...this is the magazine for you. It hits everything a guy would want to know and more. My girlfriend wishes there was a magazine equivalent for women. Very concise and to the point.

    It is a magazine to be read, it is not for pictures...well not always......more info

  • Be a man
    If you're looking for a men's magazine that will help to keep you informed on fitness, weight loss, nutrition, sex and style - then this is a magazine you will have an interest in.

    The layout is simple, with the most important information highlighted to draw your attention. I have found this magazine to be extremely helpful in keeping myself fit. I find an abundance of useful material each week and there is always a recipe or something that I find myself trying out with each issue. Great stuff....more info
  • Requested feedback
    The magazine covers an overall spectrum in order to touch on areas of interest for all individuals...more info
  • I didn't like magazines until i picked up a Men's Health
    Normally I would never buy a magazine, but one day someone at work brought in a Men's Health and I ended reading it cover to cover. Its filled with little facts and figures guys love to know spread throughout the pages in addition to the main articles, which are great by themselves. If your a man and can read, you will most likely enjoy this magazine. ...more info
  • Why did it take so long?
    It took forever for this magazine to get to the address and it also is shipped a week to 2 weeks after the magazine is already on the stands. What's the point of having a subscription if you get the magazine later than everyone else? I will never order a magazine from Amazon again, I'll go through the actual magazine company instead....more info
  • Ideas on how to improve yourself
    Many people will find this magazine shallow, but I don't really believe them. I am reading it non stop since the last semester, and I have to recognize it's well-written, it has great articles on health issues so guys can understand it; for example, there was a story on heart disease which was very compelling and informative. You will find exercises there if you want to pump up, I have been using them for a while and mixing them up as a routine I can follow and I'm pleased for the results; it's a nice first step if you're a beginner but then you'll have to take it a little forward. It has a simple, no-nonsense and humorous attitude which makes it even more enjoyable to read. I think it's good for your money's worth. just don't take the relationships articles way too seriously (by the way, they're NOT intended to be taken seriously)...more info
  • Great magazine.....if you happen to be a woman.
    Men's Health has tried to improve sales by creating a marketing plan that targets young woman hoping to find out what men really want. This magazine is filled with advertising and uselss information that does not apply to the average male. Most of the articles are tongue and cheek....more info
  • A positive influence
    I like Men's Health a lot, because it is one of the most practical, useful magazines I get. It covers fitness, diet, health (it is very big on prevention and self-diagnosis early, so as to avoid major health problems later), fashion (good stuff, trendy and basic, not latest-from-Paris kinds of stuff), relationships (carefully sneaked into a magazine that looks like it isn't about relationships -- clever, because men don't read magazines about relationship tips), finance, and other topics that come up. There are brief articles on each of these (this is the magazine I read while standing over the kitchen sink eating breakfast -- articles tend to be brief enough to finish in that period of time), and I appreciate the witty, upbeat style that is not pompous or pretentious, just good basic 'guy stuff'.

    Alas, in each issue there is at least one article on 'how to drop five pounds this week' or 'how to lose 10 pounds by Easter' -- these look like they'll work and seem very reasonable, but I cannot comment on their effectiveness (would that I were able to!). I can comment on the effectiveness of time management, basic financial planning, and exercise routine advice -- these have worked for me. In fact, I credit many of the articles in this magazine with helping me to plan a graceful exit from my old job and into my new self-employment career and graduate school/seminary endeavour, by illustrating stories and giving useful advice.

    There are also fun things, too, like a recent issue's back-page article on how to effectively tan, by the tan-master himself, George Hamilton. Do you know how to tie a bow-tie? This magazine had an article showing that, too.

    This is not an 'in-depth' magazine, but then again, it doesn't pretend to be. Many of us work and live in a world that doesn't permit time-consuming research and consideration of essays on health and fitness, unless we are professional in that field. Thus, magazines like this fill a need. So far as health and fitness magazines are concerned, this one is a good one -- many magazines are veiled soft-core erotica. Men's Health does not avoid the topic of sex, but doesn't overplay it the way many do.

    The magazine has a good graphic sense to it -- it illustrates the physical things discussed in photographs without as much embellishment as many other fitness magazines. Comparing this to several others on the magazine rack, it is understated, has less flash and more substance in the articles.

    Definitely worth a look!

  • Barely a "Health" magazine anymore
    I used to enjoy this magazine, but it has gone downhill. Rather than "Health" the magazine's focus has become getting women to bed, sex, and fashion. The title of the magazine should be changed to "Men's Fashion" or "Playboy". If you want a fashion magazine, there is already GQ. The magazine cover usually tries to portray "muscle" type articles, and there are articles on working out, but the focus on "Health" is very limited....more info

  • Only somewhat useful but very annoying
    I have twice subscribed to Men's Health and both times was disappointed. You really only ever need two issues of this repetitive journal of contradictory advice and mediocre fitness strategies. Real information is offered up sparingly and is often incomplete. There is however, an abundance of absurd success stories of people who are either so young that they can easily achieve their fitness goals or have so much time that they have no excuse not not be in shape.
    There is little that applies to anyone over thirty who have actual jobs and need to live real lives.
    Furthermore, they slip additional book offers and subscriptions in with your contract. You can easily spend 5 to 6 times the subscription price per year if you don't stay on top of the junk that hey send you. Honestly, one of the worst magazines in terms of all the additional crap that they send to you. ...more info

  • eh--it was ok.
    I gave this subscription to my husband as a gift while he was in law school so he would have something else to read besides law books. He likes to exercise and keep fit but he was not overly impressed with this magazine. He like the first few magazines that came but the one's after that seemed to feature the same type of stories and had a lot of advertisments for things. We did not re-order....more info
  • Mostly fluff for metro-sexuals, gays, and women
    I've subscribed for several years and have finally asked my wife to stop renewing for me (for Xmas). I can't figure out what the magazine wants to be: a metrosexual guide, a fitness guide, a health & beauty guide,....

    Its not a fitness mag., because the fitness articles are lame and sparse. You could read Ladies Home Journal and get the same.

    The men's health and beauty feature articles about "looking thin", and then present guys wearing $1000+ outfits. Sorry, dudes -- I don't know who your audience is, but its not me.

    Finally, the advice columns are often a joke...like Jimmy the Bartender taking 5 paragraphs to finally say, "Don't sleep with your girlfriends sister." Yea...who'd a thunk that one!...more info
  • Great overall magazine
    I've been an avid Mens Health reader for years now and enjoy the almost every article. Great finance tips, good everyday man stories, and great sex tips. The cooking ideas cannot be topped in most cooking magazines.

    I rate 3 stars because during the last few years I've seen repetive articles, after about a year or so the same topics will come up again with no fresh information. During the last year or so the magazine has began catering to the 6 figure man. I'm no slouch but I cannot afford to spend $500 dollars on a pair of pants.

    All in all a good magazine. If your a normal man looking for anything outside expensive fashion tips, finance tips for 6 figure investments, recipes on roast duck, or awesome workouts made for the corporate executive your looking in the wrong place. ...more info
  • Men's Health Stealth
    MH has some good content on a variety of topics, although I would like more on fitness and health. Their treatment of customers is another story. I dislike the fact that they regard a subscription as permanent until you figure out how to turn it off. Just now I spent $7.50 returning books I didn't want. They sent me a notice beforehand allowing me to opt out, but I was away on vacation. When I returned, I sent in the opt out form, but apparently it was too late and I received the book for a 21 day trial. I was ready to return them immediately, but the fine print says that an invoice is to be included; in another place it says the invoice will arrive in a few days. After at least 15 days (of the 21 day period), the invoice hasn't arrived. After I found a phone no. and called it at 10am on a Monday morning, the recorded message said it couldn't take the call - try again another time. Rodale has sneaky ways of serving its custormers.

  • RIP-OFF >> BEWARE of publisher RODALE!!!
    Aside from the fact that this magazine has very little to do with REAL men, it's publisher, RODALE has treated me very unfairly.
    You will get bombarded with glossy junk mail and they will automatically renew your subscription without your approval. If you ignore it, they will have North Shore Agency (collector) send you a collections notice. Think I'm kidding? Just Google it. They do this to everyone.
    My wife got me a subscription through her airline miles program. I hated the magazine and never renewed it. Apparently that means little to Rodale. I got a notice from North Shore and challenged them to prove I asked for a renewal. Never heard back. I expect to see this on a TV "rip-off" report soon. You've been warned!!...more info
  • love the recipes
    I agree with all of the reviewers who commented on the auto renew. I had to call to cancel my husband's subscription b/c they kindly auto-renewed him - twice - in the same month. As a female, I enjoyed the recipes and found the sex tips humorous. I agree that the magazine tends to regurgiate the same information. ...more info
  • Good informative reading
    The only problem is that when you subscribe, they start off your subscription with old issues. Make sure that you have not purchased any recent issue or you will reading them again....more info
  • Highly Entertaining, but that's it
    This is an excellent bathroom magazine. If you're looking for a "real" health magazine, look elsewhere. If you're looking for some entertainment, this may be it. There's loads of information ranging from your basic shaving razor to your ...pair of jeans. There's not much in the exercise department anymore. In fact, you can probably draw the same information from your first issue and your last issue when it comes to diet and exercise. Nonetheless, it's one of the more entertaining and interesting magazines I've encountered... It's worth taking a look at....more info
  • Liberal
    Obama and Democratic party hacks!!! I thought I was getting a honest health magazine, not another Liberal Obama loving mag. I will not renew my sub. I just wish that these publishers would keep their personal politics out of everything they do. They just can;t help themselves. The media are just insane with this Obama worship so I say NO to menshealth. Shame, you had an opportunity for a interesting magazine, but you had to shove your Obama down my throat. Not anymore!!!!...more info
  • Not what I expected.
    So I ordered this magazine and for almost a year I've been reading it. I have to admit, it's not entirely what I expected. I've picked up a random issue for review, September 2007 to be exact. So here goes...

    The GOOD: The articles in here are well-written for the most part, and many of them are related to actual health. This issue, which features an odd dual-issue format with Jamie Foxx on one cover and Andy Samberg from SNL on the back, has an article about the decline in testosterone (good) and stories about cooking healthier (also good). Some of the ads in this issue are geared toward men too, such as the Ford Super Duty and Jeep ads.

    The BAD: In my opinion, there's *way* too much focus on fashion in this magazine. It's bad on normal months, but this issue has a whole section donated to it (the back, upside-down section). They seem to want me to buy a $750.00 pair of ugly Beatles-boots and by far the ugliest watch I've ever seen, the Zenith Defy Xtreme Open for $29,700.00. Not sure who this magazine is catering to but I bought a subscription to learn more about healthy living. There are entire magazines out there devoted to the type of guy who has money to burn and cares so much about a certain image (in otherwords, a poser). I didn't expect it from this magazine. And it's not that I want to tell this magazine what it should or shouldn't be... it's just that I don't want any part of this whole image thing. You can buy some great high-quality and functional men's items without going overboard with materialism, and I don't want a magazine that promotes that.

    The UGLY: That Zenith watch takes the cake. Seriously, look it up online. It looks like something from a cereal box. I might wear it if it was free, but I'd have to wear long sleeves to cover it up. A watch shouldn't cost more than a new car. If it does... you're a poser :)

    Overall: This magazine has some good fatures but it's too fashion-oriented for my tastes....more info
  • Review
    Would have liked to receive confirmation in the mail that the subscription had been made and the person would receive it pending on processing time. But the first magazines were delivered much faster than the website had listed. Would order again....more info
  • what guys think about
    You can tell a lot about the readership a men's magazine is trying to reach by scanning the first three car ads. In the issue in front of me, they flog the Lincoln MKZ, Range Rover Sport, and Audi A6.

    There you have it. We're going for the affluent but not super-rich young guy who won't even become aware that the Lincoln Town Car and Audi A8 exist until he turns 55. Well, 52 maybe.

    But you didn't need the cars to figure out MEN'S HEALTH.

    It's about what all men think about and what affluent guys with six-pack abs (in reality or in their dreams) can generally snag: expensive suits, beautiful women who seem never not to pout, and beefy arms to set off those abs.

    To be fair, there is actually a fair amount of *health* under discussion in these pages. But I doubt that's the main reason guys pull this magazine off the shelf instead of, say, DOG FANCIERS.

    In spite of an irritating habit of treating women as trophies to be won or dupes to be lured, there is a good bit of wit in here about what one might call the manly dilemma in the modern world. And if it really is lack of *just* the right workout regimen that has kept you from getting all that's on offer in MEN'S WORLD, well, there's at least one new workout each month that will cure all that ails you.

    Don't mistake this monthly for serious journalism. But you won't need a brown paper bag to carry it out of the store either.

    I kind of like it....more info
  • The Only Magazine that connected to you
    I have many men magazine, none comes close to Men's Health. Some magazines are too glossy that spell "expensive" for what ever they wanted to promote. With Men's Health, I get to everything from A to Z. I always pass my old copies to my local library for their own collection....more info
  • Not Just for Women--My Favorite Health Magazine!
    It's funny, but my husband subscribes to this magazine, and I subscribe to WOMENS HEALTH, but it's this one I prefer. I've finally nailed it down to it being just a little "sexier." As in, the celebrity profiles and the short pieces on sometimes pretty random things.

    For instance, recently there was an article on Adrian Brody and all the weight he had to drop (plus learn to play piano!) in a very short period of time. He described locking himself in an apartment, all alone, because he knew he couldn't achieve new goals by living his life the way he had always done. That really resonated with me since I, too, am trying to achieve things I never have before. It's an inspiring, helpful magazine, and I think many women would benefit from reading it just as I do!

    Plus, this month there's Josh Holloway, and who's going to say no to that? :)

  • easy subscription process
    this was my first time ordering a magazine subscription through amazon, and i was impressed. i ordered it as a gift, although men's health is a great read for us women, too... placed the order on 12/02, and the first two magazines showed up in the mail last week....more info
  • This is a consistently informative magazine.
    My brother dismissed magazines such as "Men's Health", due to an errant assumption that such publications were not for typical suburban Dads like him. A heart attack and quad bypass later, he changed his mind! I bought him a subscripton to enjoy during his recovery, and he has really gotten a lot out of it. It's not glossy "fluff"; it actually has stuff he reads and uses each month. This is one subscription that is worth every penny....more info
  • Great Mag, Always learn something
    I always learn something new and useful from this mag. I read this and the Wall Street Journal....more info
  • Watch out for the unwanted books!
    The magazine is ok, a little light on exercise for the fitness guys, and a little light on fashion for the GQ guys.
    Warning:
    Rodale (the publisher) will send you books you haven't ordered, then send you a bill for them. Although you have no legal obligation to pay for them, they may report you to a credit agency to collect their [...] bucks. This is sleazy and I wouldn't recommend doing business with a company that uses tactics like this....more info

  • sad to agree with "sad demise"
    I wish it wasn't so, but it is. "Sad demise" hit the nail on the head. I used to be a faithful subscriber and even gave annual subscriptions to my 2 sons and son-in-law for Christmas. One by one they have asked me to drop or change the subscription. While there are still a few worthwhile items in each issue, the erosion of value is swift. Dittos on Greg Gutfeld too, I really miss his contributions....more info
  • one star might seem harsh but . . .
    This magazine is good for a year or to buy an issue if it has a specific story you are interested in but it doesn't have much staying power.

    * The workouts are recycled. They may change a few exercises but it is always the same swiss ball crunches and weightless squats on a bench. Though most health/exercise magazines do have this problem.

    * They always have a 6 page advertisement toward the end. Yes 6 pages. It is normally from the company that makes Hydroxy cut. But the worst part is that it always has the disclaimer that the claims haven't been evaluated by the food and drug administration. Isn't the name of this magazine Men's HEALTH? Yet they run ads for untested unsafe over-the-counter supplements. This advertisement is in addition to all of the other supplements that have full page ads.

    * Next, as one earlier reviewer mentioned, the clothing in the fashion section is always extremely expensive. I'm not a thrift store shopper but I don't spend over $700 on one outfit either.

    Not to be all negative I have to admit there are some issues that really rock like the interview with Thomas Jane about his Punisher workout and the article about physical requirements of dangerous jobs like Marines, Army, SWAT, FBI, etc.

    I just don't feel that it is worth what they are charging. As I suggested buy an issue from the newsstand if it has a special article. This magazine will bore you if you read every issue....more info
  • One of my favs.....................
    First off, I am not a health nut, I dont go to the gym; lets face it, I dont exercise like I should, or eat like I should. I am an active guy but I dont have regular workout plan. I do love this magazine though. I had bought a few from a local store every so often and had to order a subscription. Their regular articles are great, I really like the 3 sex ones, and all of the stats on men and women. The little add-on on almost every page giving a percent of the male popluation that has or hasnt done something or something is great.

    The articles on health issues, say the prostate are very informative yet simple enough the average person can understand them. Yet even as a biochemist I find them captavating. I dont usually spend to much time reading the atricles on working out, as I dont really do that, although one day... There are articles on just about everything; gadgets, clothing, cars, getting ahead on the job, etc..... Everything you would want for a guy magazine, its just not the main focus. I have changed my diet from reading some of the articles. One thing you wont really find in here is politics, which is fine by me. Usually a magazine will pick one side or the other and completely turn me off of it, I think its better that they just stay out of it all together. One last little bit of info, there arnt a whole lot of ad's, as compared to other magazines. There are some at the beginning and end, but very few in the middle (as far as whole page ads go).

    I highly recommend this for any guy out there. Even if you dont want to subscribe right away, go pick up a few issues from time to time at a store and give it a chance, it wont take long before you do subscribe. ...more info
