We Bring You The Best
When it comes to giving you the most trusted and credible information, Oxygen never shirks its responsibility — this magazine is packed with the best experts in the industry, all of whom ensure they keep up with the most current scientific research. We take pride in finding the very best because we know you’ve come to expect that from us every month.
For instance, our nutrition stories are written by specific nutrition experts who know the fitness industry and especially female nutritional needs. Registered dietitian and Oxygen advisory board member Susan M. Kleiner is a well-known sports-nutrition expert and author who regularly speaks at conferences about the importance of proper fueling for female athletes. Registered dietitian Jessie R. Shafer is a former college athlete very familiar with the weight room who knows what it takes to eat to sculpt muscle and perform at your highest level by choosing nutrient-rich foods.
When it comes to fitness, we don’t cut corners there either. In fact, so attuned are we to knowing the importance of proper form in every exercise and scientifically created programs, we hire the best writers and contributors in the country. Also, for every photo shoot, we have a tech adviser to ensure that the photos are correct. We are lucky to have on hand tech adviser and regular contributor Erin Calderone who earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in kinesiology from California State University, Northridge. She teaches kinesiology and is heading up a fitness specialist certification program for prospective personal trainers. Even while pregnant, she’s on set!
We know the value of the best nutrition and fitness experts, and you’ll continue to meet a wide variety of them within the pages of the magazine every single month.
P.S. What better way to celebrate the 200th issue of Oxygen than with our second annual Ultimate Oxygen Challenge! It doesn’t feel like it was a year ago that we launched this great concept, and we are excited to do it again this year! You’ll find an introduction into our coaches within these pages, and I have to say each of them have terrific programs that will transform you physically and mentally. Just like last year, it will seem as if you have your own personal trainer at your side! oxygenmag.com/oc2
