21 Years of Finding Role Models
MEN’S HEALTH TURNED 21 THIS YEAR, AND AS ALWAYS, WE’RE SEARCHING FOR BETTER MEN. THIS ISSUE IS A TRIBUTE TO THE GUYS WHO ARE CHANGING THE NARRATIVE
Men, as a gender, have featured plenty in the news lately. And truthfully, most of the coverage has been negative. From the #MeToo movement globally to the alarming facts about how men treat women in this country, there’s plenty to be ashamed of. The role of modern masculinity is being challenged (as it should be), and our scorecard up until now has been crap. But thankfully, we can improve – and we can become better men, just like the brand promise of this magazine in your hands.
The starting point: finding the right role models. The men who are getting this masculinity definition right, and who are striving to improve in every facet of their life. The good news: the search for these men has always been part of the Men’s Health DNA, and now that the brand is 21 years old, we’re still uncovering the ambassadors and change ignitors that make these pages and pixels of the brand work. Case in point: our latest Cover Guy competition we did with Clere For Men, and the 5 guys you, as a public, voted for. Those fellas – including the winner, Tawanda – are the kind of guys leading the charge from the front, and we couldn’t be more proud to be associated with them. Check out Tawanda’s profile, and the 20 other reasons why we are going to be better in 2019 (p94). It’ll give you hope – and more importantly, some motivation to be a better partner, brother, father, son, friend and more in your own life.
As always, this issue is packed with everything you need to have a fantastic December, and to tweak your own lifestyle for the better. You don’t need to wait for New Year’s (or those resolutions) to be better in 2019 – start now, and keep us posted. We want you on the cover next year.
