fitting in fitness.

Our society is always pushing SKINNY SKINNY SKINNY! This can give a teenage girl with a little extra baby fat the wrong impression. Erin Whitehead and Jennipher Walters are pushing HEALTHY HEALTHY HEALTHY in their guide A Girl’s Guide to Fitting in Fitness.

Teenage girls are busy. They have school, friends, family commitments they are forced to be a part of. They juggle boyfriends and part-time jobs. How is a girl who doesn’t play seasonal sports all year round supposed to fit in a little exercise? It’s tough, especially for those who aren’t athletic at all. Whitehead and Walters have designed a fitness guide that focuses on a healthy lifestyle, including physical activity and healthy eating habits. The sample cardio and strength training workouts, recipes, and progress charts are very easy to follow.

Honestly, after age 18 gravity hits. I wish I would have developed the healthy habits I have now as a teenager so that I never would have had to feel uncomfortable in my body. This book does not promote revolving your life around exercise; it shows teenage girls that there are ways to fit a healthy lifestyle into a busy schedule more naturally.
