Periodicals Hold Wealth of Information
Byline: Dick Weisz
Three excellent periodicals showcase 1998's fitness and recreational activities. Sports enthusiasts as well as event planners and directors will find these references very useful.
Competitive and noncompetitive activities are included, like running, walking, in-line skating, skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, rock and gravity climbing, aerobics, soccer, basketball, swimming and almost any, you-name-it, type of athletic pursuit.
The three mentioned below have motivational articles, how-to columns, sport and exercise equipment, nutritional and diet information, training and rehab information and much more.

Most of these magazines are available free at fitness or sport specialty stores, work-out centers, park districts or libraries. If you prefer direct mailing, a reasonable subscription rate is available.
