Coach is a different kind of health and fitness site. We believe everyone can enjoy becoming fitter and healthier so we inspire men and women to find activities they love then help them to follow their passions. We also help readers make sense of the confusing wellness scene by demystifying fads and trends with expert advice.

While we are based in the UK, we aim to serve readers around the world.

History Of Coach

Coach was launched in October 2015 by Dennis Publishing as a free men’s magazine with a distribution of 300,000 (opens in new tab) and went live with a website which it shared with stablemate Men’s Fitness UK (opens in new tab).

Coach went online only in December 2016 and continued sharing a website with Men’s Fitness UK, as well as incorporating some stories from Women’s Fitness UK and Health & Fitness UK, until those three titles were sold to Kelsey Media. You may find archive stories on the Coach site that reference those other brands, but we are always revising and improving what’s on the website to make sure everything is relevant to a modern audience.

In December 2021, Coach was acquired by Future Publishing.

How We Review And Recommend Products

One of the most important parts of our service is helping you find the right product to help you get more out of the activity you love, so we publish honest reviews and buying guides based on our own experience using products. Advertisers can not buy reviews or recommendations.

To find out more, read our explanation of how we review and recommend products.

Affiliate & Advertising Disclosure

We always aim to provide unbiased editorial created by our journalists and writers. We also need to pay our teams and website costs so we make money in a number of ways. We sometimes use affiliate links to products and services on retailer sites for which we can receive compensation if you click on those links or make purchases through them. From time to time we also publish advertorials (paid-for editorial content) and sponsored content on the site. When this is the case the content is clearly marked as sponsored or promoted, so you’ll always know which content is editorial and which is not. Future PLC is our parent company and has an in-depth terms and conditions page (opens in new tab) with a lot more information.
