Default Just a vent here- \"Oxygen\" Magazine

Okay, so I know that ABC is far superior to any "fitness" magazines out there, but I still read Oxygen and M&FHers to entertain myself and see what the latest fad is. I just got the newest Oxygen in the mail and I could not believe the cover model!!! It's Rebecca Herbst who is an actress on "General Hospital"!! She's absolutely gorgeous and I am a fan of the show, but come on- a FITNESS model???? At first I thought maybe she was going to say that she had recently discovered what weight training could do for her body and was a fitness convert or something, but she states right in the article that she doesn't have a formal workout program and just roller blades or goes for a hike with her hubby to stay in shape. I'm so disappointed, although I guess I really shouldn't be so surprised. When I think of all the great women on this site and the pictures you all have shared it just makes me so sad that a magazine supposedly dedicated to fitness would put a genetically blessed Hollywood skinny minny on the cover instead of scouring some local gyms for a body that truly shows the fruits of some serious labor.

Oh I hear ya; last spring Heidi Klum was on the cover of "Shape"; her upper arms are about as big around as my (freakishly tiny) wrists.

Disclaimer: I would never subscribe to "Shape"; although occasionally they have good exercise explanations, overall they are not oriented to heavy lifting, plus their "diets" are too light on protein, too heavy on processed carbs; also still in that "lowfat rules!" mindset. But my gym gave me a free 2 year subscription; I guess cause I'm a gurl I couldn't possibly be interested in M and F, which is what they gave male members.

I used to buy the magazines....waste of money IMO....they repeat the same articles over and over and push their products in your face on almost every page.

I value the expertise and opinions at Abc over anywhere else...it comes from passion and dedication...and you cannot put a price on that! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Holy crap ... I totally agree w/ you. I thought that was her, but I wasn't sure. I haven't
read the article yet, cause I save the reading for my less intense cardio workouts. I am
shocked that she's on the cover, she's looks so scrawny to me. She's pretty and all that
jazz, but WHAT THE HECK???!!! Oh, well it makes me feel better because my
arms look like gigantic rocks compared to hers!! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

I just bought this months M&amp;FHers and laughed at the fitness diet they have in there. If I ate all those carbs, I'd be as big as a house. I've learned more here then that magazine. Thanks to all.
