If you follow country artist Carrie Underwood, you already know she’s into fitness. Like, really into fitness. Not only does the gorgeous singer look fantastically toned onstage, but she regularly shares details about her healthy lifestyle on her Instagram account. Plus, she has her own workout clothing line called Calia by Carrie Underwood. To top it all off, now she’s sharing her fitness secrets in a new book and her message is wholly refreshing.
Find Your Path: Honor Your Body, Fuel Your Soul, and Get Strong with the Fit52 Life was just announced by an imprint of publisher Harper Collins. The book will be published in March 2020 but is available for pre-order now.
In it, Underwood shares her best tips for fitting fitness into a busy schedule, meal plans and weekly workout plans. She explains how to keep food and workout journals, as well as how to do her own personal Fit52 workout, which uses a deck of cards to help you guide your workouts. Carrie also gets candid about her own relationship with sports and fitness and the “pressure to look perfect” in the music biz.

Perhaps the most refreshing aspect of the book is Underwood’s realistic perspective. She maintains that eating should be pleasurable, fitness should be about getting strong and cheat days happen but shouldn’t derail you.
“I want to be healthy and fit 52 weeks of the year, but that doesn’t mean I have to be perfect every day,” she says on the Harper Collins website. “This philosophy is a year-round common-sense approach to health and fitness that involves doing your best most of the time—and by that I don’t mean being naughty for three days and good for four. I mean doing your absolute best most of the time during every week, 52 weeks of the year.”
Fitness without an emphasis on perfection? Sounds like exactly what we need.
