1.0 out of 5 stars Have to agree with "Vapid" ... March 13, 2005
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I received two free trial issues in order to give the magazine a chance before subscribing. Boy, am I glad I didn't subscribe! The magazine is nothing but fluff - good only for people who mostly want to flip through and look at pictures - not for people who actually want informed articles and reports on health.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring magazine with little substance February 10, 2003
By A Customer
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I subscribed to one year of Health magazine in hopes of finding tips on better living and overall health. But upon opening my first issue I have been very disappointed. The magazine is nothing but ads, and has very little substance. Even the recipes in the back are knock-offs from other food magazines like Cooking Light (an excellent magazine by the way).
I don't think I've found one article in Health magazine which I've found useful. Maybe other people like it, but I will not renew my subscription.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a read March 29, 2003
Subscription Term Name:1 year
In general many health magazines seem to focus on glamour and make you wonder what's wrong with you since you can't be a size 2, work out for 3 hours a day, balance a job, family and whatever else life throws your way. The magazine comes with several articles a month that focus on looking good, exercise plans, diet tips, stress relief, and a few that promote good mental health. I like this because its low key and sensible. This magazine isn't set out to change your life, but enhance what you have and show you a few new ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best health Magazine I Have found June 11, 2002
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I have subscribed to various magazines for years, and paid pretty prices too, but this modestly priced magazine is one of my favorites. It really has a variety of articles, fact based, no nonsense. I love the exercise part, I teach the yoga type exercises to my satff at work. This puts "self" to shame. Check it out for yourself . I give it as a christmas gift to my friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Realistic Health Magazine November 18, 2001
Subscription Term Name:1 year
This has got to be one of my favorite magazines. I take to old ones to work for the break room. I (and everyone at work) eagerly await the newest issue to arrive.
What I like best is that the magazine writes about health in a realistic manner. Giving you tips to live up to your full health potential, including regular reviews of popular diets, recipies, beauty tips, exercies and wonderful articles.

Subscription Term Name:1 year
I was given HEALTH magazine as a gift, and have enjoyed six months worth at the present time. I'm a 40 something, formerly fit mother who still believes in herself enough to know that someday...I can be 'fit' again. This magazine seems right up my alley. It addresses common health issues with clear, short articles and yet isn't packed with ads so that the articles get lost. Some recipes, some exercises, some discussions, while remaining entertaining too.

You would be wasting your money if you are already fitness oriented and off to the gym to meet your trainer, but if you are in need of an encouraging, helpful, entertaining read that will inspire versus guilt you into getting healthier, this magazine is for you.

Update: 6/24/12
I've been an avid HEALTH reader for years now, and it DID inspire me to get healthier and fitter. Over time I've lost 22 pounds and lots of inches. I'm stronger and more knowledgeable (thanks in part to HEALTH) about health-related issues that are common with my age group. I met and maintained my goals by starting slowly, with realistic goals. Despite being a self-proclaimed 'gym rat' now, I still enjoy HEALTH magazine. HEALTH keeps it 'real' and I like that!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly Surprised! July 14, 2005
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I picked up a copy of Health at my local grocery store, mostly out of curiosity. I found myself enjoying it enough so that I will be ordering a subscription. Here's why:

1.It encompasses every facet of health, not just diet or exercise. As one reviewer noted, it is broken down into categories: Looks, Living, Moving, Feeling, and Flavor (it was just redone). The articles in each seem to be well-written and are enjoyable. I particularly enjoy the Feeling and Living sections, as they are something that is rarely found in other magazines.

2. Unlike many other magazines, I found myself marking or wanting to mark so many pages to keep or check out further that in ended up being a good part of the magazine. I, like most others, enjoy getting the most for my money.

While everyone has a different idea of what constitutes a "good" magazine, this one will soon be a regular fixture in our house.

5.0 out of 5 stars Overall Health 'A+' October 26, 2001
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Health combines the best of healthy food, basic fitness with a nice peppering of vitamin (supplement) use for an overall healthy lifestyle. You don't have to join a gym to be able to apply the principles that Health shares. I read an article on garlic in Health recently, it discussed the healthy properties, myth and fact, as well as cooking suggestions. A great overall magazine for healthy living!
