By Hilton Andersen, Charlotte
Body image and fitness are hot topics for both men and women. The Great Fitness Experiment is a funny and informative guide through the morass of contradictory claims and information in today's health- and fitness-obsessed world. Charlotte Hilton Andersen tries a new workout each... month for a year in an attempt to discover what works, what doesn't, and what's just plain weird. She delves into such subjects as the Action Hero Workout, Cross Fit Training, Going Vegan, Double Cardio, and others. Interspersed between the chapters on the monthly experiments, Anderson offers personal essays on everything from her past experiences with eating disorders to testing the ugliest fitness shoes on the planet to lesson about, as she puts it what I've learned from being a girl in our body-obsessed culture. She writes candidly about her history of anorexia, orthorexia, and general-low-self-esteem-exia, including anecdotes about the effects of the health craze on her students, friends, and gym buddies.Read more

She also writes for iVillage, blogs for The Huffington Post and has been featured on ABC's 20/20 and Fox's morning show. Her writing has appeared in the online content of the Washington Post, USA Today, Fox News, and Livestrong, among others.

She is the mother of five children and lives in Minnesota. This is her first book.
