With her younger sister’s wedding on the horizon and a crush to stalk on Facebook, Lexie’s had enough. She gives up her constant daydreams about food and joins a dieting group. As the pounds melt away at the gym, she finds that life on the other side of junk food isn’t what she thought.

Bon Bons to Yoga Pants is an inspirational hit about a girl coming to terms with herself, and her past, all while navigating a world of food and fitness.

My Fitness Entrepreneur: How to Become a Personal Trainer and Start a Personal Fitness Training Business by Ahmed “Gino” Erguigue

In association with http://myfitnessentrepreneur.com

Working as a personal trainer for the past 15 years has given me an extremely blessed life and I’m thankful every day that this is my profession. I love the fact that I get paid to positively impact the lives of my clients every single day. I put together this book to to help others achieve a career as rewarding as the one I’ve experienced. Hopefully this guide will help you find the same joy, satisfaction, and success that I have found in this dynamic profession.

This is my story and I hope you like it. It comes from my heart.

-Gino

About me:

I received my education and training from the Athletic University of Rabat, Morocco (the National Academy of Sports Medicine), as well as an extensive amount of practical knowledge gained as a professional track and field athlete. More important than my knowledge of fitness and athleticism is my passion for helping others achieve success in the most important (yet overlooked) aspect of their lives: health and wellness.

The holistic integration of medical knowledge and physical fitness is a combination that is far too often overlooked. My mission is based on the concept of simplifying and building a strong foundation of principles and tools to allow people to live a realistic balanced lifestyle. I am committed to developing customized programs, paralleled with ongoing motivation, that will allow clients to reach their ultimate fitness goals. Changing our bodies is very challenging (just like changing our lifestyle), but with a well defined plan of action to follow, it becomes much more manageable.

My philosophy is based on the concept that we are all on our own journey. Throughout that journey we are continuously learning lessons we need in order to become the most amazing versions of ourselves. With each challenge, we have one choice: to run away or to embrace it and grow as an individual.

From Handguns to Paintbrushes: A Memoir of Self-Destruction, Rock Bottom, Hope, Change, and Love by Joseph “Jeff” de Leyer

Jeff de Leyer is the grandson of a Dutch immigrant and equestrian champion, Harry de Leyer. This in itself, created an impression of a young man born into a world of privilege and entitlement. However, this could not be any further from the truth. His biological mother and father abandoned him on a doorstep when he was only three years old, leaving him with a void that was nearly impossible to fill. Jeff spent his teen and young adult years on the streets of New York making a name for himself as a drug dealer. This is where he not only found acceptance, but also a sense of family he so desperately wanted and needed. In 1998 at 21 years of age, Jeff was arrested and later convicted of a gang-related murder, after a drug deal went horribly wrong. In prison, he was a high-ranking member of the United Blood Nation, involving him in gang wars, fights, and riots. Rock bottom came years later at the age of 39. At this point, the only thing he was looking for was redemption. He decided it was time to walk away from the only life he had ever known. This is the compelling and true story of the rise and fall of a New York Ecstasy Kingpin. It is an eye-opening excursion through the pulse of the drug world, street life, drug addiction, prison, art and true love. Through his passion for art, desire for education and love, he rose above his circumstances to embrace a new vision of the world around him.

Reach for Joy by Teresa L Greenway

“Some part of me wanted to reclaim my lost self, but I was still afraid of Jason and what he might do. It was as if two people inside of me fought against each other—the one who wanted to be free and the one who was desperately afraid.” Having ten children, suffering nerve damage from the cold, and sleeping under a truck along the highway wasn’t what Tessy imagined her life would be like when she married Jason. Spanning three decades, this heart-wrenching memoir follows Tessy’s struggle to comply with her controlling husband’s desire to live like pioneers from a bygone era. As his carefully constructed fantasy continues its downward spiral, she is forced to face her fears and make a life-altering decision. Caution: This book includes scenes of rape, death, and emotional abuse.
