Description


Jayne Williams brings irreverent wit and a passion for movement to people who want a roadmap to real-life, functional fitness. Shape Up with the Slow Fat Triathlete is the antidote to fitness books that promise killer abs and deliver disappointment.

A mediocre athlete with a lifelong weight problem, Williams struggles with her own fitness demons, including self-consciousness, injuries, and yo-yo dieting. Now, she puts fun back into working out with realistic advice, zany anecdotes, and essential observations. With stories from other "imperfect athletes," Williams's fifty audacious tips help aspiring athletes of all flavors to kick butt on the trail, in the pool, or at the gym.
