This book explores common representations and experiences of American fitness. It takes women’s experiences as the center of inquiry toward an understanding of the function of fitness in our lives and in our culture-at-large. Ranging from 1968 to the present, from Jane Fonda to WiiFit, from revolution to institutionalization, from personal to political, and beyond, this book considers a broad range of topics from an interdisciplinary perspective: generations, cultural appropriation, community development, choreography, methodology, healing, and social justice. Drawing on her experience as a cultural theorist, educator and fitness instructor, the author offers critical and creative approaches that reveal the limitations and possibilities of fitness. The book enables readers to think about their own relationship to fitness as well as the more abstract meanings of the term, and suggests the idea that fitness has some potential to transform our worlds—if we’re willing to do the work(out).

Reverend Steer McAlilly accepts the pastorate of Morning Glory Presbyterian, a sizeable country church, in hopes that he and his wife, Tanya, might escape the bondage of their old selves. He is a recovering alcoholic and benny popper who fantasizes about driving a racecar. She is a stripper whom Steer rescues from the nightlife with promises of middle-class contentment and Christian bliss. Their new start, born out of their love of Christ and each other, is a true miracle-until Steer falls into the first great sin he's committed in a long while: a sexual indiscretion with a beautiful nineteen-year-old member of his congregation. The boundaries of love, forgiveness, and spiritual certainty are tested, torn, and put back together in unexpected ways as Steer rediscovers the holy revelations of Morning Glory's Long Lost Order of Worship. It has been said that Brian Agincourt Massey is a literary artist who "has gifts other writers do not." His prose has been called "versatile," "hard-bitten, yet fluid and poetic," and "superb," with dialogue that is "top-notch energetic." That the purveyors of these accolades range from New York editors and agents to fellow novelists to L.A. screenwriters attests to Massey's broad appeal.
