Funny Foto Friday: Fitness Magazine

A few months back, I was fortunate enough to win was a subscription to Fitness Magazine from Erin “Berryfine”over at From Fat to Fab. Go check out her blog. She is funny, direct, and sincere all wrapped into one.

I'll admit, I didn't 100% realize that it was a WOMENS fitness magazine when I entered the contest, but that hasn't stopped me from entering contests for head band dealies or for a pink pair of Ryders sunglasses. So, even if I did know I probably would have signed up anyway.

Well, the first issue came in the mail the other day. I'll be honest, I've got to admit, I can't put this thing down!

Sometimes I found myself reading it while in my office.....when I was supposed to be working. (Note the marathon medals in the background, the Garmin on the left, and the free copy of "Sweat" magazine on the right. You don't get any flower print or doilies in the MAN zone!)


Usually, I would read it while sitting on my ass "chillaxing" after a hard days work.


Literally.couldn't.put.it.down.


I read it so much I even brought it into the pool to read while I was spending some quality time with my most favorite blow up lizard.

The best part was that it was a double issue so there was twice the amount of 'reading to be done. (And why it looks like it is flipped upside down in some of the pictures) So, seriously, this magazine was pretty good. It was a little fluffy for my taste, but it had some really good articles about fitness (imagine that).

Happy weekend! I've got some killer giveaways coming up!

I'm sure the editor at Fitness will be pleased!

Berryfine said...

OH.MY.GOD.

I never thought anyone would top Jenny McCarthy's Candies ad on the toilet but once again Adam....you've done it. I'm so glad it was you who won!

Also, I haven't been blogging as much as I should so I guess now that you called me out I better step to it.

Tricia said...

You should definitely move this one to your "favorite" post section. Sure I like to hear what you have to say about running, but you on a toilet trumps that anyday :) Have a great weekend!

Andrew Opala said...

ok ... I have to leave now ... I think I ruptured something from all the laughter.

Neil Z said...

C'MON MAN, The freaking toilet!??! Unfortunatley the part that freaks me out the most is, I know what kind and color your underwear are... DAMMIT ADAM!!! TMI!

Lisa said...

I can't stop laughing! that's it. hilarious.

Running Through Phoenix said...

Fitness really is a quality mag. Glad your review made it to the blog. I've been reading a copy over and over and over again for the past three days.

ShutUpandRun said...

You are a man after my own heart. The toilet. Oh my god, the toilet!! I love it.

GeorgiaSnail said...

well, looks like the age old, "Boxer/brief" debate has finally been settled.....Crikey, now what will my saturday morning running group have to talk about?

Christine Jensen said...

Hilarious!

Ed said...

I literally lol'd at my desk... at my office... for work... where I should be getting work done, as well. Can't you see... Your blog is my Fitness Magazine!

Her Name is Rio said...

Yes- you can put that in the "never thought I'd see..." category. :)
Glad you like the mag! Fitness magazine's PR oughta hire you!

Rad Runner said...

You killed me with the toilet! I would have been thoroughly disappointed if you wouldn't have put such a tasteFULL picture! That was a rad giveaway!

kilax said...

Oh. My. Gosh.

Adam, you totally crack me up.

And I thought I was the only one who read Fitness on the pot! (Ha ha, actually, I don't sit there for a long time, but someone in our house does so there are a lot of magazines in the bathroom!)

Whitney said...

Awesome pictures. Just AWESOME.

I just purchased myself a subscription to that magazine yesterday. Excellent news that you are enjoying it.

razzdoodle said...

Could've done without the toilet pic. Especially after having lunch. NO DISCLAIMER?????

Take the good with the bad, huh?

Julie said...

Oh Adam,
You always crack me up:) You are the biggest goof-ball ever!! I love your man zone....your office is very tidy:)

Happy Friday!

Pam said...

Love it. Absolutely love it.

EricaH said...

To be honest I am really lovin the pink and green blow up lizard pic I think it show off you athletic ability (keepin your balance and reading takes skill) and the lizard is so darn cute (fingers crossed that the lizard is one of the "killer giveaways" you were talkin bout)

Seth said...

I find myself reading my wife's fitness magazines too -- i don't see why not! hilarious post dude.

RunnerDude said...

You're so crazy! LOL! Loved it!
Honey!....Where's your Fitness Magazine?!

destinationathlete said...

Oh, submit that photo dude, the toilet one - that's freakin' hilarious!

Cynthia O'H said...

Sadly, my husband reads my magazines too and I do find them in the bathroom. Now, if you ever want to hear a gal yell, leave her magazine sitting on the toilet.

And, I have similar opinions of Men's Fitness but I'd get in trouble if I were caught reading it at work. Can you imagine the stories our 7's and 8's would start?

Colin Hayes said...

Talk about irony! I'm now reading your blog while sitting on the can! Actually, I didn't quite make it there in time (thank God for Depends), but still...

Funny stuff as usual, my man.

Adam Culp (Crazy Floridian) said...

Oh no you didn't just burn the image of you on the throne into my eyes ! ! ! Damn!

64 CLASSIC said...

I was worried on the third pic that we were going to see a little too much of the "man zone!"

Jamoosh said...

One of those pictures is absolutely WRONG. Reading a magazine in your office - sheesh...

sRod said...

Picture #3:

1) Is that grassed tied around a towel?

2) This is one Vaseline jar away from inappropriate.

RunningLaur said...

Your cover commentary is just about spot on. Crash Diets? Sounds perfect for fitness!!!

Jill said...

Green undies? They go well with the bathroom wall color! And you seriously should sent your blog to Fitness mag, you'd probably get a free 10 year subscription!

5 Miles 2 Empty said...

Hilarious.

Kevin said...

Found your blog via Tricia at "Endurance Isn't Only Physical". Absolutely hilarious. It looks like I have another blog to add to Google Reader now.

My wife subscribes to Health (also a Women's magazine) and I read it on the can all the time.

Thanks for the laugh!

Robyn @ WannabeWriterRunner said...

Haha this is the funniest thing ever. Love it!!

inspiREDtorun13 said...

LOL. Okay... where did you get that pool float?!

I was looking at an Alligator and Killer Whale at Target. The 5 year old in the picture concerned me that it could be a waste of $11 dollars and not hold me or any of my friends. I still think I'm tempted enough to go back and buy it!

Emz said...

freaking
kill me.

really? really khaki boxers?!
