Acclaimed ballerina for the American Ballet Theatre and first ever African American performer with them, Misty Copeland, shares the secrets of how to reshape your body and achieve a lean, and strong physique in her book, Ballerina Body.

Copeland believes “There has been a shift in recent years in which women no longer desire the bare bones of a runway model. Standards have changed: what women do want is a long, toned, powerful body with excellent posture.” So, the body of a ballerina. In her first health and fitness book, Copeland shows women how to reshape their bodies to be lean and flexible, that includes step-by-step advice, meal plans, workout routines, along with coaching and inspiration. She illustrates the importance of healthy fats and an active regimen based on ballet exercises. Misty shares her personal exercise routine and an eating plan that includes healthy fats, both of which keep her in top shape. An inspiring section on a critical concept of finding mentors, and aiming to be one, along with excerpts from Misty’s personal journal, round out this important book on grace and strength.
