Publisher's Summary

In this intimate memoir, first-prize fitness competitor and personal trainer Valeria Teles invites you to reflect on the idea that joy is an ever-present choice.

From a young age, Valeria yearned for a life that would bring her joy. She hoped to find it in relationships and a successful career, but neither brought a genuine smile to her face. She then discovered fitness, which became her escape - keeping her even further from the truth, until she could no longer live without joy.

During a meditative period away from the fitness world, Valeria learned that exercise and enjoyment belong together, and that forgiveness is essential for personal healing.

Now a student of Buddha's teachings, she shares her vision for conventional fitness that is integrated with emotional and spiritual well-being.

Fit for Joy will inspire you to establish a harmonious mind-body connection that is based on self-knowledge and self-love. Insightful and tender, this book will reveal how freedom, joy, and peace come from courage, and that courage can be found by being true to yourself.

About the author: Valeria Teles is a certified personal trainer, winning fitness competitor, author, and the creator of the Fit for Joy philosophy. Born in Brazil, she began her professional career in the arts, both music and dance, before finding her way to fitness. With more than 20 years in the fitness industry, Valeria has designed the Fit for Joy wellness center project to instruct others in her method of maintaining a joyful life. She is currently devoted to writing and hosting the Fit for Joy gatherings.
