Fitness Junkie is an interesting look into the lives of middle aged extremely wealthy women and the obsession with being thin and unusual fitness regimes that will get you there. Janey's business partner and best friend tells her she is fat and can no longer represent their wedding dress company until she loses weight. Janey is crushed and spends the next few months finding fitness classes for the elite that will help her lose weight. The story has both sad and funny moments. I found it to be a page turner and really liked the ending.

So boring, could not get into it and characters were completely not relatable. Returned it unfinished as it put me to sleep each time i tried to pick it up to read.

There can be many ways to describe this book but the one the comes to my mind first is the unexpected approach to the world of diets, health and trends with a touch of exquisite sarcasm. Just what women NEED to start feeling happy in there own skin and body type. Excellent book highly recommended...

Chick-lit satire of the calorie and appearance obsessed lives of New Yorkers. If you've had enough of kale, bizarre diets regimes, cultish workouts and are a little bit tired of the words wellness and gratitude, this book might be for you. A light humorous beach read, it didn't make me laugh out loud but I did give a small giggle here and there.

Funny read, especially for those looking for the next diet and workout fad. Points out the ridiculousness of extreme workouts and regimes, all in a make-believe world where looking perfect can be hilarious or possibly deadly.
