Fear no more! While the fitness industry implies otherwise,
large women, too, have the right to exercise and be fit.
This book will inspire and empower you to move your body-if you want to. The authors are adamant in their stance that
large women have the same right as anyone else to work out
or choose not to. The emphasis is on having fun and enjoying
your body. While describing various activities, the book also
discusses the special needs larger women face while exercising,
such as supportive bras and sturdy shoes. There is no reason
to hide in the house and avoid life just because you are larger
than someone else! This book is gentle, encouraging, and eye-opening,
and-you may have guessed this already-written by two large
women, one who teaches aerobics and one who loves sports.
