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.

Chrissy King is here to remind us (gently, lovingly!) that diet culture is rooted in white supremacy and that the key to freedom is not “body positivity” but “body liberation.” Her perspective…is a breath of fresh air.
— Jen Pastiloff, bestselling author of On Being Human
A fervent message about self-worth.
A genre-redefining narrative that mixes memoir and inspiration with messages about social and racial justice.
As Featured In
Hey there, I'm Chrissy King. I'm a writer, speaker, former fitness and strength coach, and a powerlifter with a passion for intersectional feminism and creating a diverse and inclusive fitness industry.
I spent the majority of my twenties focused on shrinking — my body, my voice, and my entire life in general. I obsessed about my weight and truly believed that my happiness lied on the other side of fat loss. Strength training, powerlifting specifically, was one of the things that changed changed this narrative for me.
I’m on a mission to help people STOP shrinking, START taking up space and use your energy to create your specific magic in the world.
