Overview

LEANER, STRONGER, FITTER…FASTER
Sick and tired of hearing what’s wrong with you and your body?  You’re not alone.  It’s time for a new conversation—and a new plan for treating, feeding, and moving your body in ways that build on your strengths inside and out. Strong is sexy. Strong is powerful. Strong is achievable. 
With STRONG IS THE NEW SKINNY you can say goodbye to body-bashing and physical faultfinding, and instead learn to embrace, not just how it looks, but what your body can do—from pushups to pull ups and box jumps to rope climbs, nothing is out of your reach.  Strong Is the New Skinny offers a reality-based diet, lifestyle, and fitness program (the “SINS” plan, for short) so you can: 

   • Maximize your potential, as well as your energy, vitality, and power.
   • Train your brain—develop resilience and mental fortitude in every area of your life.
   • Add muscle, increase speed, and enhance flexibility.
   • Strengthen your arms, back, core, and legs—and crank up the challenge when you’re ready for the next level.
   • Torch fat with Strong Moves:  a series of heart-healthy H.I.I.T. workouts that take as little as 10 minutes.
   • Kick-start your Get-Fit, Get-Fierce plan with the Strong Seven—7 days of 7 power foods.

Whether you’re just getting started or training for a challenging physical event, this book gives you all the tools you need to become leaner, fitter, and stronger: nutritionally, physically, psychologically, and emotionally.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Strong Is the New Skinny arrives with arguably the catchiest title of the month, but it also delivers the goods. In 240 pages, it presents a flexible fitness regimen that combines exercise and diet to enhance both inner strength and full-body strength. Trainer and Health.com blogger Jennifer Cohen and award-winning writer co-author Stacey Colino clearly realize that in health and fitness, one size does not fit all. Thus, the book's sample workouts and illustrated strengthening exercises presume no previous expertise and the diet plan guidelines and sample menus are actually helpful.

Publishers Weekly
06/16/2014
Health.com blogger and Weight Watchers fitness ambassador Cohen and health writer Colina have devised a robust regimen that combines diet strategies with strength-boosting exercises. The major components of “Strong is the New Skinny” (SINS) are inner strength and a full-body strengthening plan. In the first section, readers learn how to identify, build, and maintain inner strength. The authors list four essential principles of fitness training: “finding the right formula,” mixing up workout routines, constantly challenging the body, and “focusing on neglected muscles.” Other chapters cover the assessment of cardio and strength capacity and a diet plan focused on whole foods—lean protein, fruits and veggies, whole grains, and healthy fats. Tasty sample menus are included, along with advice on what to eat and when to eat it according to SINS. In the second section of this impressive guide, the authors discuss and demonstrate (with numerous photos) how to strengthen the back, arms, core, and legs, with sample workouts and specific fat-burning exercises. Cohen and Colino’s guide is encouraging, empowering, and accessible. 80 b&w photos. Agent: Rick Broadhead, Rick Broadhead & Assoc. (Sept.)
