All of the Women’s fitness magazine stated as well as others fitness magazines basically promotes one goal: For women to become fit and healthy. You may choose whichever fits your body or your lifestyle. However, despite the goal they are promoting, there are some who find these magazine to be bad and fraud. The fitness magazines manipulates our mind such that we are becoming used that when they say fit and healthy, what really comes to our mind is being slim and trim. These magazines tend to play with our insecurities to provide us with what they called solution but what is really happening is that we are forgetting the concept of loving oneself and accepting who you really are. The magazine makes us lose our self-esteem by providing us with figures and models that serve as false standard for beauty and wellness. They all tend to tell lies on what we are to do, what to have in order to allure us on the different products they are promoting on every issue they release. Basically, they are all liars and eventually pay others to eventually say all those lies, those whom they call experts and professionals. For them, you have to make yourself so thin and remove so much fat to consider you amazing. We, women should not be manipulated.
After knowing the pro’s and con’s of the fitness magazines, now, it is for you to decide either to patronize or antagonize these magazines. These Women’s Fitness Magazines are always available in the market. No one can push you to buy them or not. As for me, you may do whatever you want with them. To follow or not to follow is what makes you a woman. The ability to decide for yourself is the gift you have to treasure and what makes other people respect you. The most important thing is to basically love yourself, change is always part of life. If you change your way of thinking and love yourself despite being big, or whatever you do, that is good and no one can argue with that. Likewise, if you decided to change your lifestyle to become what you wanted to be, it will still be good for you. Decisions we make in life provides us with consequences we have to face in the future. Thinking of the consequences we have to face, will allow us to make better decisions for ourselves. So what is the top women’s fitness magazine for you? Only you can make it, based on your health, fitness level, and lifestyle with things that makes you fabulous.
