Last Updated: 16:15 September 4, 2013
AIM, which has its corporate offices in El Segundo, California, bought women’s health and fitness magazine Oxygen, healthy diet and nutrition magazine Clean Eating and bodybuilding magazine MuscleMag International from Robert Kennedy Publishing for an undisclosed sum. Robert Kennedy Publishing is based in Mississauga, Ontario, a suburb of Toronto.
The three magazines will be part of AIM’s healthy-living group, which company spokeswoman Dayna Macy said will be moving to Boulder from San Francisco by Oct. 31. Clean Eating will also be moving its operations to Boulder. Macy said about 10 employees will move to Boulder with the healthy living group, and added that the company will be hiring locally to fill several positions. Yoga Journal also will be moving from San Francisco to Boulder as part of the shakeup.
The move of the healthy-living group gives three of AIM’s five publishing groups homes in Boulder County.
In May, AIM bought Boulder-based Ski and Skiing magazines, along with Warren Miller Films, from Bonnier Corp. AIM’s outdoor group is based in Boulder along with its equine network of publications that includes American Cowboy and Practical Horseman.
AIM also has a custom publishing office in Lafayette.
AIM’s portfolio of enthusiast magazines and websites reach more than 10 million readers in 85 countries.
