I don't have any suggestions for the inside. I don't think there is any specific type of style that applies to this genre, but you would want to convey an energetic and contemporary feel. So dynamic photography and attention grabbing titles would be appropriate.

With the fitnessPRO logo I think you should make the text the same height as each other. If you have a common invisible grid line that links the two, then it is both easier to read and unifies the two words together. Just a suggestion anyway. Maybe try and jazz up the cover a little too. Do an effect witht the text, give it some dimension, like aqua text or any of those common tutorials you see on the net.

And.... I was wondering, why the heck are you doing graphic design in a gym class?!! I wish my school had been like that. :)

Good idea so far :) (I like your sentences)

I have an idea aswell. (just my opinion)

The person in the front cover should be wearing some kind of gym wear (or sport clothing).

Fitness can be represented by motion. Using "motion blur" in photoshop can create cool effects.

Hope that helped

good work but i don;t think it would be necessary to put the issue and date anymore on the inside because you already have them on the cover

i am not being graded on how good the graphics are, its mostly the content, its gym class, not computer class, so i dont have to worry about everything like detail you mentioned, but they are good ideas ;) :)
