How Julianne Hough Stays Fit and Healthy (But Still Eats Pizza)
Behind the scenes with our beautiful, balanced September cover star
Julianne Hough makes things happen. In the past year alone she won rave reviews for her role as Sandy in the hit TV special Grease Live!, recently started her own television production company, created an athleisure line called MPG Collection by Julianne Hough (she's wearing it on our cover), and launched Juliannehough.com, a lifestyle website where she gives fitness, food, and fashion advice to her millions of fans.

Shape Magazine (or Shape) is a monthly English language fitness magazine started by Weider Publications in 1981, founded by Christine MacIntyre (a pioneer in women's free weight fitness) and became the #1 women's fitness magazine. At that time, Weider Enterprises consisted primarily of the bodybuilding magazine Muscle & Fitness. Joe Weider and Christine MacIntyre had differing views of how to present Shape magazine, Weider endorsing a less journalistic and more commercial approach to articles, MacIntyre endorsing a more academic, doctor-based magazine. Weider also endorsed a sexier approach to editorial while MacIntyre endorsed a healthier look for women, eschewing sexiness in the models and the copy. MacIntyre largely won that battle, editing a magazine that required that every byline have an advanced medical degree[clarification needed], that cover models should look healthy rather than sexy, and that sexist language be avoided. Christine MacIntyre was the editor-in-chief until her death in 1988. Tara Kraft is the current editor-in-chief. Shape found a readership based on that formula.
Weider was purchased by American Media in 2002. A German version of Shape is available in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
On January 28, 2015, it was reported that Shape Magazine would be acquired by Meredith Corp. and Fitness Magazine, published by the company, would ceased publication in May 2015 to be combined with it.
