Oxygen Magazine, May 2016


It's Time To Get Stronger!

One of the reasons you’ve always turned to Oxygen (and why we’re lucky enough to have such a loyal, impassioned community of women picking us up every month) is your constant quest for strength. Muscles, you say … bring ’em on! Banish those waif-like celebrities who boast of workouts designed to keep them runway skinny. What you like to see — and revel in — are shapely muscles and sculpted, strong bodies.

You’ve told us in tweets, posts, letters and emails that when you get stronger, you feel more grounded, walk more confidently, have better posture — you own the space you’re in. Strength, you have come to realize, is both a physical attribute and a psychological one.

And that’s potent medicine.

That’s why we give you, every month, workouts designed exactly for what you want — an increase in strength and overall performance. For instance, “Bust Plateaus With Powerhouse Pyramids” found on Page 64 points to new, creative ways to sculpt muscle and gain strength. And to improve your endurance (and to aid your get-lean efforts so you can showcase those strong muscles), try some of these inventive finishers with four-minute Tabatas that will tax you to the limit! (We know you like that, too!) See “Turn Up the Burn!” on Page 50.

Our commitment to strength isn’t confined to the pages of this magazine. We also want to make your digital experience speak to your desire for a stronger body. Oxygen’s new 12-week online series STRONGER With Sarah Grace is the perfect example of what I’m talking about. The series gives you innovative workouts — designed exclusively for Oxygen by fitness coach and former figure competitor and boxer Sarah Grace — that improve strength and performance, plus strength-promoting nutrition tips and much more. With admirable strength chops, Sarah Grace coaches you every step of the way; it’s like having a personal trainer in your own home! For more, go to oxygenmag.com/stronger.
