A fitness and nutrition plan with serious results designed by Kim Kardashian's most celebrated personal trainer, Melissa Alcantara, aka Instagram star Fitgurlmel.

In her early-thirties, with a young child, a processed-food addiction, and no expensive gym membership, Melissa Alcantara had had enough. She realized her daily hour (or lack thereof) at the gym was reflected in every part of life, from her productivity and performance to her relationships and mindset. So she decided to get uncomfortable, to stop "working out" and start working--to kick her own ass at the gym and at home. Because the only thing holding her back was herself.

Now, she shares the ass-kicking plan that transformed her life. Fit Gurl is a path to self-discovery through fitness. When you begin to truly work your work out and your diet, you will learn to love and intimately know your body--maybe for the first time ever--and its responses, and accept and embrace every part of yourself for who you are. It's all based on her four-step process that goes beyond good health and focuses on four Cs:


As Mel persuasively demonstrates, the Turnaround goes beyond fitness. It's life.

What do you want? To have biceps, a butt, and defined abs? To wear anything with confidence? To feel resilient and capable in every situation? There's no insta-anything. It's about work. If you're ready to put in the time, commitment, and energy, she promises she'll get you there.

Fit Gurl is illustrated with two-color food and exercise photographs throughout.
