Women’s Health mag a hit with the stars

Women's Health Nov Issue
This month, Women’s Health celebrates five years of inspiring SA women to look and feel their best, with a Special Collector’s Issue and a sexy free gift. The issue features well-known TV stars Jeannie D, Gail Mabalane and Jo-Ann Strauss, who have all appeared on the cover of Women’s Health over the past five years. Launched in 2009, Women’s Health quickly carved out a niche as SA’s favourite healthy-living women’s title and is now the second biggest-selling English women’s monthly, with an average circulation of 58 686 (ABC: Apr-June). Readership has grown incrementally over the past year and the title now reaches 515 000 SA women, an 11% increase on the previous annual figure (AMPS Jul 13-June 14 BA).

The fifth birthday issue features a combination of highlights from the past five years (best workouts, weight-loss tips and recipes, most humorous sex advice!), a must-read celeb feature and super-quick beach body plan – just in time for summer. Best of all, newsstand consumers and print subscribers will receive an exclusive Women’s Health edit of the choose-your-own erotic destiny novel, A Girl Walks Into A Bar by Helena S Paige.

Continuing the festivities, Women’s Health has teamed up with former Men’s Health cover star Johry Batt to launch the #WHhigh5 campaign. Readers will be asked to nominate the women they think deserve a “High Five”, in recognition of their healthy-living efforts, and may be surprised with a visit to their fitness class from Johry himself! Video clips reflecting the activities surrounding this campaign will be shared across all Women’s Health social media platforms. Don’t miss the action!
