I have always loved this website, but lately, there are so many pop-ups that I can't get through an article without being re-directed to another page. I'm a subscriber and love the magazine, but the website leaves much to be desired. I can't print full workouts, I have to click through 10 pages to watch a slideshow, and I get re-directed over and over again so it's difficult to read an article. So frustrating!
