Product description

Review

-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
