For the fifth year in a row, IDEA Health & Fitness Association’s publications team has been awarded the prestigious Maggie award. Dubbed “the Oscars® of the magazine industry,” the Maggie awards are presented by the Western Publishing Association and represent more than 400 magazines. This year IDEA Fitness Journal took top honors as Best Health & Fitness/Trade publication. “We are extremely proud of the editorial team,” says Kathie Davis, executive director
of IDEA. “Their commitment to producing the fitness industry’s highest-quality and most educational print vehicles has been recognized with yet another prestigious award. The fact that their professional magazine industry peers have recognized them as best in class is a testament to the gold-standard quality they deliver. Their expertise in packaging practical
