MUSCLE & FITNESS MAGAZINE TO RETURN TO NEWSSTANDS IN 2021
We’re back, because you asked for it!
By M&F Editors


After more than a year since ceasing its print publication, Muscle & Fitness flagship magazines will be returning to print, it was recently announced.

For nearly 85 years, the Weider publications earned a reputation for their industry-leading coverage of all things related to health, fitness, muscle building, and nutrition. In early 2020, at the start of a global pandemic, the magazines suspended printing in favor of a fully digital online presence.

Now under the direction of new Owner Jake Wood, President Dan Solomon, and Chief Content Officer Zack Zeigler, plans are now in place to bring printed issues back to subscribers as well as selected newsstands and events toward the second half of 2021.

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.

Each of the titles will enjoy several upgrades — including thicker page stock and glossier pages, along with several content improvements aimed at providing more overall value to readers. Additionally, the magazines will expand its subscription base to an even wider audience. Plans are also in the works to resume publishing of FLEX, widely considered the bible of the bodybuilding world.

Wood, the co-founder of Wings of Strength, also acquired Joe Weider’s Olympia Fitness & Performance Weekend, the fitness industry’s most celebrated event, in 2020.

 Demand is high enough to bring a muscle rag out of retirement! Who needs this kind of media nowadays? It obviously stopped for a reason

Ones got to wonder how/why Blechman keeps MD in print?
Must be a money losing endeavor? Went from 500 pages down to 50.
Break even? Tax write off?

Obviously Jake and Steve are rich, but why keep a Mag out there?

Although in other area's, some magazines are still popular (probably an older crowd) hunting, fishing, etc. Weird.

Most people who used to read it won't even know it's back on the market if they don't read Getbig.

One small staple could cover everything up.
