Companies like that are usually not allowed to give out information on what agencies they use.
The lady who cuts my hair begged me to call American Crew to see if they'd use me, so I did, and they told me they were not allowed to give out that information.
You would have to contact the ad-agency for American Crew. The receptionist at American Crew is not going to be in a position to answer. It is traditionally a way for ad people to prevent being contacted by irate consumers. If anything you would be tossed over to the PR dept, given a verbal handjob and promptly forgotten about.
Contacting the Editorial Dept at a mag and asking to be pointed in the right direction is not so random - especially at Men's Health. As long as you don't sound like a stalker looking to hunt models, it really shouldn't be a problem.
Every Company will have it's own policy however.
A google search on "Men's-Fitness-Model-Agency" should be reasonable place to start!
