If you thought the fitness craze was about being healthy, think again. Although Charles Atlas, Jack LaLanne, Jim Fixx, Jane Fonda, Richard Simmons, and Jillian Michaels might well point the way to a better body, they have done so only if their brands brought in profits. In the first book to tell the full story of the American obsession with fitness and how we got to where we are today, Jonathan Black gives us a backstage look at an industry and the people that have left an indelible mark on the American body and the consciousness it houses. Spanning the nation’s fitness obsession from Atlas to Arnold, from Spinning to Zumba, and featuring an outrageous cast of characters bent on whipping us into shape while simultaneously shaping the way we view our bodies, Black tells the story of an outsized but little-examined aspect of our culture. With insights drawn from more than fifty interviews and attention to key developments in bodybuilding, aerobics, equipment, health clubs, running, sports medicine, group exercise, Pilates, and yoga, Making the American Body reveals how a focus on fitness has shaped not only our physiques but also, and more profoundly, American ideas of what “fitness” is.

Cass expected to find a ruthless criminal; instead she found a darkly magnetic man whose bone-melting intensity blurred the line between her duty and her own desires. Derek Mansfield had returned to Chicago to settle a score, not to become entangled in a seductive game of cat and mouse with the intriguing Cass.

In a society that spends billions of dollars annually in seeking better health and appearance through pills, powders, drinks, hormones, exercise obsession, gym memberships, and medical drugs, Freda Mooncotch is making a very bold proclamation with the title of her new book Defying Age With Food: Reclaim Your Health, Energy & Vitality. It's What You Eat, Not How Much You Exercise! Can we really defy the aging process with what most of us take for granted each day - our food? Freda says we most certainly can in fact dramatically slow our inevitable passage of life while attaining superior health and vitality. The pages of her new release are not filled with theories, conjecture or speculations; they tell the riveting tale of a woman's plight to regain her health. In describing her story, Freda literally runs the gauntlet of healing protocols from both the orthodox medical and alternative health fields. What the author accomplished in her success not only gave back her health and beauty, but fired a few heavy artillery rounds across the bows of a good number of our "sacred cows" such as excessive exercise, fad dieting, mega-dosing on supplements, and a pharmaceutical drug reliance that has forged the industrialized world. This is a must read for anyone wishing to seriously upgrade their nutritional knowledge. Media celebrity, Kathy Hart said: "What an eye-opener! I learned more about the effects of food on our body from Freda and her book, Defying Age, than I've learned in months of interviewing health experts! Her passion, knowledge and energy are a true inspiration ... and those pictures of her in the book are absolute proof of how the right diet can give you a rockin' body." Randy Roach of Muscle, Smoke & Mirrors wrote: "This is a story of tenacity where a strong determination saw Freda through a fight to reclaim a healthy mind and body while ridding herself of a number of addictions plaguing so much of our society." Along with her amazing story and nutritional revelations and tastefully done photos of Freda, this resourceful book also contains recipes that she promises will nourish one back to health, strength, and vitality.
