What Happened to "Fitness Swimmer" Magazine?

Post by James E Pring » Fri, 22 Jul 1994 02:56:02


Title says it all.  I was given a gift subscription at
Christmas last year and have only received one magazine
since.  I think it is a quarterly magazine, so I figure
that by now, I should have received at least two,
possibly three issues.  Tried calling the 800 number
listed in the one issue I did receive but the number
is no longer in service.

Did they go belly up?

I'm glad you brought this up.  Just last week I was trying to remember the
last issue I had received.  Of course, I didn't save it and have no number
or address to contact. (Dumb, huh?)  I thought it sounded like a good
magazine while it lasted.  WHERE IS IT NOW?

I called fitness swimmer about 2 months ago asking about my subscription.  At that time, their 800 number had been disconnected.  I left a message on a machine
on their number for advertising listed in the masthead.  About a week later someone returned my call stating they had no record of my subscription.  He also said that Fitness Swimmer had been sold to a large publisher and was currently
under the process of reorganization.  

Hope that helps,
Kurt Congdon

P.S.  He offered me a t-shirt or a back issue to compensate for the trouble,
 which I thought was kinda nice.  You might try calling and see what the story
is now.
