The Magazine 

Health & Fitness has been a figure-head publication in the female fitness market for nearly three decades. The need to stay in shape and be conscientious about your health has never been more in the public eye. As a consequence, there is a growing market of information-hungry women who require topical and reliable information. Health & Fitness magazine ensures their needs are met via editorial targeted directly at active, fit, health-conscious women. It allows relevant brands the opportunity to communicate and educate this hard to reach audience. Its recent move to Dennis Publishing fitness portfolio ensures the publication will continue to go from strength to strength.

Health & Fitness is the UK's original women's fitness title and the leader in its field. Now in its 27th year, it has defined itself as the quintessential title for active, health-conscious women who want the latest information on fitness, diet, health and wellbeing. Packed with expert advice, diet and exercise plans, product reviews and features, H&F offers its 233,000 readers everything they need to feel their best. H&F's Workout Handbook section provides workout plans and guidance to help readers get the most from their exercise sessions. Readers also enjoy inspiring interviews, gym fashion, natural beauty tips, healthy recipes, spa travel reviews and in-depth features, all delivered in a glossy, entertaining magazine.
