Description

Whether you're on a basketball team, an occasional jogger, or a self-acknowledged couch potato, The Girl's Guide to Fitting in Fitness has practical advice that you can really use. The book is organized just like a typical teenager's school week, and shows how easy it is to wake up earlier and sharper (using yoga and relaxation techniques), eat healthier foods, and use the little in-between moments of your day-like the commute to school, or the time between classes-to incorporate a little bit of physical activity that will make a big difference. Additionally, the book includes: sample workouts for the morning, the school day, and the summer and weekends; sidebars packed with special advice, information, and tips for healthier living; and quotes from other teens about how they fit fitness in illustrations for all of the workouts and advice. In this fun and practical guide, the writing duo behind FitBottomedGirls.com offers a real-world teen guide that's sure to help even the most devoted TV-addict lead a fitter, healthier, and happier life-without the need for a gym or fancy exercise equipment.

Review quote

"This informative guide aims for a whole-health perspective when it comes to fitness, focusing on nutrition, school sports, and providing flexible workouts for many different lifestyles. Readers are given a thorough overview of the components of a balanced fitness routine, including cardio, strength training, warm-ups, and cooldowns. When PE isn't available, or on weekends and school breaks, options for staying healthy include phone apps, Wii workouts, and making the most of physical summer jobs. There's a group fitness decoder for classes girls might encounter if they join a gym. Riddled throughout the text are tips and tricks from real girls who have managed to make time for exercise and proper nutrition. Girls who want to make the most of their gym class are told, 'GO for it and don't be afraid to look a little silly.' It's a pleasant reminder that physical activity is supposed to be fun. From start to finish, this guide is a useful, well-researched resource for any young woman looking to figure out a regimen that works for her."--Booklist
