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. Grades 7-12. --Courtney Jones
