Dennis Publishing has acquired Women’s Fitnessmagazine. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Women’s Fitness has an audited ABC circulation of 36,022 (July-Dec 2010) and was launched in 2002 .

The title will sit alongside Health & Fitness magazine which will continue to cover the areas of health and lifestyle in addition to its regular fitness coverage.

Previously owned by Vitality Publishing, the move will see the team of five editorial and two sales staff relocate to the Dennis Publishing London HQ within the month. The magazine will initially be published by Divisional MD, James Burnay.
