Most people who follow bodybuilding are familiar with the well-known Muscle & Fitness magazine that it’s been around almost forever (nearly 85 years) and has featured the world’s biggest stars in fitness and bodybuilding. But because of the Covid-19 pandemic, they stopped print publication in 2020 and stuck with digital content for obvious reasons.
However, according to the publication, they’ve decided to bring the magazine back to shop shelves due to popular demand and this should happen in the second part of 2021. Many will surely be pleased with this news, especially long-time fans of the magazine.
Muscle & Fitness is a leader in publishing content related to training programs, nutrition, bios, and much more.
Last year, Wings of Strength owner Jake Wood purchased the Olympia and Muscle & Fitness from American Media (AMI) and he’s big plans for the brands of which he also has the help of Chief Olympia Officer and Chief Content Officer Zack Ziegler to make the dream a reality.
This was from the Muscle & Fitness website…
“Following the successful release of a special edition of Muscle & Fitness HERS in December 2020, the publisher of the iconic fitness media brands is now set to return to print for both Muscle & Fitness and its sister publication, Muscle & Fitness HERS.”
The magazine won’t just be for subscribers though but it’ll apparently be sold at select newsstands and events. In addition, the magazines will have “thicker page stock”, “glossier pages”, and add a lot more value for readers.
They also plan to offer more regarding their subscription service and we also learned that there are plans to continue publishing FLEX, another legendary bodybuilding magazine.
After a challenging year, this comes as good news for many who are hoping for more normalcy.
