I was incredibly privileged to work with Gemma Atkinson on her debut health and fitness book, The Ultimate Body Plan. One-third biography, one-third exercise plans, and one-third recipes, the book provides an achievable programme to look and feel your best, whatever your current fitness levels. Gemma’s fun, friendly tone and no-holds barred honesty made it a joy to write and pushed it to the UK Top 10 Bestseller list.
In partnership with Women’s Health (UK), I wrote an eBook on raising body positive/body neutral girls and young women. Via research and interviews with therapists, teachers, coaches and parents, the book provides background on how and why body image plays such a key role in kids’ development. Strategies are provided on how to boost self-esteem in children from birth all the way up to age 18, teaching them to appreciate what their bodies can do rather than what they look like, as well as ensuring we adults don’t pass on our own body confidence issues.
