Men’s Health UK announces new digital columnist
Eddie Hearn: “Hopefully, what I talk about will resonate with the Men’s Health reader, and inspire those who want to improve their lives, increase performance and longevity.”

Men’s Health has announced world boxing promoter, Eddie Hearn, as a new digital columnist, which will see the 43-year-old penning a fortnightly column entitled: ‘Eddie Hearn: Don’t Call It A Mid Life Crisis’.

Hearn’s new column will reflect on his own fitness journey, as well as some of the most pertinent matters relating to mental health and valuable insights from inside the world of boxing. The chairman of Matchroom Sport and the Professional Darts Corporation will also interview influential figures from the world of sport and entertainment as part of the new Men’s Health offering.

The Men’s Health UK website – which the publisher says has a monthly global reach of 14 million – will host the new column, whilst those who subscribe to the brand’s newsletter will get early access to Hearn’s insights, receiving it 48 hours before anyone else. In addition, the Englishman will work with Men’s Health UK on its hugely successful How I Build My Body franchise, which will see Hearn feature in content on both the brand’s YouTube channel and print magazine.

Hearn said: “About 18 months ago I decided to focus more on my physical health and wellbeing. I was working myself into the ground. I was overweight, my diet was terrible and my training sporadic. Now, I’ve virtually cut out all alcohol, train five days a week and have lost 10kg. It’s still a work in progress, but I feel better both physical and mentally. This is why I want to write for Men’s Health, to share my journey, to show that if I can find the time so can you.

“Hopefully, what I talk about will resonate with the Men’s Health reader, and inspire those who want to improve their lives, increase performance and longevity,” added Hearn. “I used to think that success was about wealth, but now I think success is the way you feel when you get up in the morning – I’ve never yet found anyone who’s improved their health and fitness and not performed better in life. As for me, I’m just getting started.”

Robert Hicks, Men’s Health UK executive editor - digital, said: “We’re delighted that Eddie has teamed up with Men’s Health and we’re really excited about the inspirational insights and content that will be available to our readers. Strip everything back and Eddie Hearn isn’t that different to a lot of men. He’s in his mid 40s with a family and a hectic work schedule. Trying to find the time to exercise is a problem so many of us face, and Eddie’s no different.

“Over the coming months you’ll see a side to Eddie that not many people get to see,” added Hicks. “From dealing with online negativity, to how he looks after his mental health, to fronting up to issues around body image and his own mortality, there’s no topic off limits and he’ll talk about it in a way only he can.”

The first edition of ‘Eddie Hearn: Don’t Call It A Mid Life Crisis’ is available from the 19th of May for newsletter subscribers and the 22nd of May for non-newsletter subscribers. To sign up to the Men’s Health UK newsletter and get early access to the column, click here.
