Fitness for Every Body: Strong, Confident, and Empowered at Any Size (Paperback)Meg Boggs (author)
- We can order this from the publisher
For years, Meg Boggs believed the narrative told to her by society: she thought that as a plus-sized woman, she could never be fit; she could never be strong; she could never love exercise; she could never be enough. But when Meg became a mom, she decided to rethink her preconceived notions and embrace her body for what it is, not what diet culture said it should be.
In Fitness for Every Body, Meg shares her personal story and inspires you to celebrate your own body for all its capabilities. Featuring a dozen step-by-step, full-body workouts, this book is more than a workout guide or a training manual. It's a reminder that you're more than just your weight, that you are stronger than you believe, and that just because you might not be thin, doesn't mean that you can't be an athlete. Your body is capable of doing incredible things-you just have to let it.
Equally uplifting and enlightening, this body-positive fitness guide will inspire you to love your body no matter your size and to approach food and exercise in a way that benefits both mental and physical health and wellbeing.

"If you're a woman who's sick of being told that your body is too big to be athletic, or that you'll only be able to accomplish tough physical feats if you look like a fitness model, this book is for you. Part memoir, part anti-diet manifesto, and part strength-training guide, Fitness for Every Body offers the liberating perspective that your body is capable of so much more than diet culture gives it credit for-from lifting heavy weights to handling challenges like pregnancy and delivery, mental illness, and whatever else life throws at you." -Christy Harrison, MPH, RD, author of Anti-Diet
"Meg is the definition of REAL. This world needs more women like her, who prove that no matter who you are, your body should be celebrated for all that it can do." -Lauren Fisher, seven-time CrossFit Games athlete and founder of Grown Strong
"As a long-time follower of Meg, I feel as though I've gotten a front-row seat at her evolution in the last couple of years. I've learned from her, been in awe of her, and just truly fell in love with her ability to break through barriers and hate when it comes to her fitness and her body. With Fitness for Every Body Meg helps peel that journey back a bit, taking you through
facts, combined with experience, that relate to anyone of any size. She uses her story to vehicle a message that everyone needs to hear, learn from, and be empowered by. I think this book is especially important for anyone who lives with thin privilege to identify and dismantle the systems that cause so much fatphobia and weight stigma in our society and learn how we can collectively be a better support to ALL bodies. This is the book I would pass down to my children to read. I would be honored if my kids would have a woman like Meg Boggs to aspire to." -Sarah Nicole, blogger at The Birds Papaya
