In January 1989, Ironman Magazine started using the trademarked phrase 'The Future of Bodybuilding'. The vision for this phrase was to enhance the bodybuilding environment by emphasizing the positive and growing the awareness of bodybuilding as the foundation of a healthful lifestyle. Bodybuilding is not meant to be a quick fix but rather a realignment of priorities, a positive addiction.
Ironman Magazine is actually 'Iron Man' magazine. The magazine's purpose is to be a facilitator, and enablers by design. "We know training" is there mantra - training meaning all the facets of the process that can help you attain your physical - culture goals.
