Hello and welcome to Fit&Well! It's great to have you here.

If you've ended up on the Fit&Well website, it's likely that you're looking for ways to meet your health and fitness goals, whatever they may be. And that's exactly what we're here to do. Our mission is simple: to help people achieve our tagline of 'healthier, happier living'.

Fit&Well is for anyone who wants to improve their overall health and fitness, regardless of gender, age or fitness level. We caters for people who simply want to lose a few excess pounds all the way up to those who want to train for a marathon or triathlon.

We cover health and wellbeing, fitness, nutrition and mental health with a mix of health-related news, how-to exercise guides, fitness equipment reviews, healthy recipes and inspiring case studies and interviews.

We also place a particular emphasis on home fitness technology, reflecting the current shift from traditional gym memberships to working out at home and the rise of app-based training products.

Fit&Well is brought to you by Future Publishing, which also publishes T3, Tom's Guide, TechRadar, Cycling Weekly, Live Science, Woman&Home, and many other popular titles (opens in new tab).

Previously Fit&Well magazine, the brand relaunched as a digital-first platform in July 2020. In addition to our website, you can follow us on Instagram (opens in new tab), Facebook (opens in new tab), Twitter (opens in new tab) and Flipboard (opens in new tab) - all under @wearefitandwell. You'll also find Fit&Well-branded health and fitness guides on the shelves of your local supermarket, including titles such as Running for Beginners (opens in new tab) and Mindful You (opens in new tab)

As for me? I'm Stephanie Wood, Fit&Well's Editor. You can find out more about me and my team below, including how to contact us.

On that note, I'd love to hear from you with your thoughts on the site: what you like, what you'd like to see more of and what we could be doing better. And if you work in the health and fitness industry and you have a product or service you think we should be writing about, I'd love to hear from you, too.
