"With the same delicious brand of satire that Sykes and Piazza became known for in The Knockoff, Janey falls down the rabbit hole of fitness trends, skinny mommy blogs, and juice cleanses in search of a weight-loss savior… You’ll breeze through this one like you would a Saturday spin class with the most fabulous playlist and the promise of brunch cocktails after."
"I laughed out loud reading Fitness Junkie, which serves a heaping helping of hilarious satire, profiling the step-counting, calorie-obsessed New Yorkers who fill the cronut-shaped holes in their souls with workouts."
—Jill Kargman, creator and star of Odd Mom Out
"Fitness Junkie is a deliciously fun romp through the bizarre and cult-like workouts of the superrich, from naked yoga to clay diets to private island wellness retreats. Funny, frothy and delicious."
—Jane Green, author of Falling
"I was thrown into the diet and exercising regimen of the 0.01% and was barely able to exhale. Fitness Junkie moves furiously through the torturous extremes women subject themselves to, all in the name of pleasing someone else. Sykes and Piazza work their magic through the eyes of a woman more like yourself. Read this and you will never eat cronuts with a side of guilt again."
—Maureen Sherry, author of Opening Belle
