Ballerina Body is a fantastic read for anyone starting out on their fitness goals, or really anyone who needs a little pick me up along the way. Copeland offers advice in areas like nutrition, fitness, and most importantly for me, the mentality of trying to embark and keep up a fitness routine. Copeland urges that looking like you're favorite won't necessarily happen, but it’s the goal of being healthier and working slowly but surely to that goal that will help you achieve the results you want. Encouraging and motivational, she urges people to love the bodies that they have, and if getting healthier helps them look how they wants, all the better! Getting a ballerina body isn't about trying to look a way you'll like, its about loving the body you have and wanted it to be healthier. Her health and fitness advice is manageable and doable, one of the most important things when trying to get fit. By doing the gradual changes that Copeland suggests, it's easier to keep up with your goals and not exhaust or hurt yourself, resulting in giving up and quitting. I'd highly recommend this book to anyone struggling to get started on their fitness journeys as it’s a great way to mentally kick start your drive and motivation.
