Is this the year you’ve decided to get into shape? Are you trying to cut though all the diet and exercise fads on Instagram and Facebook and find something that will help you finally learn to create a body that you are happy in. Then Build Your Own Body, Strong is the New Skinny by Kelly Donegan might just be the book you need.
Kelly, who is probably best known for taking part in the reality TV show, Tallafornia is now on a mission to take control of your emotions and habits and create the body you always wanted.
Kelly’s story is motivational as she was suffering from depression when she turned to fitness. She became empowered and is now passionate about helping others find the body they love.
The book consists of an introduction to fitness and health. This breaks down many myths that surround health and the gym, as well as working on changing your mindset. Kelly then moves on to demonstrating exercises to do in the gym and also includes meal plans that can be adapted to suit individual needs.
For me the best part of the book, is the exercise section. Kelly showcases some great and effective exercises. She also makes you believe that fitness is attainable, no matter where your starting point is. All you need to do is keep at it.
If you are looking for inspiration and want to become a stronger woman, I’d highly recommend this book for the beginner and gym newbies.
