Introducing Chrissy King's New Book:

The Body Liberation Project

How Understanding Racism and Diet Culture Helps Cultivate Joy and Build Collective Freedom

From author and Instagram personality Chrissy King, an exciting, genre-redefining narrative mix of memoir, inspiration, and specific exercises and prompts, weaving in urgent, timely messages about social and racial justice and how they intersect with the fitness and wellness community.

I spent the majority of my twenties focused on shrinkingmy body, my voice, and my entire life in general.
