Publisher's Summary

Everywhere you look, the messages are there. Ten days to drop 20 pounds. Gluten is making you fat. Twelve minutes a day can get you a bikini-ready body by summer. It sounds exciting, but the real message you’re getting is this: Your body doesn’t measure up - in fact, you don’t either - so you better do something about it...and quick! 

What if the solution isn’t a new diet or another fitness program? 

In The Elephant in the Gym, award-winning personal trainer and health coach Gillian Goerzen gives you a healthy and kind way to approach your fitness and well-being. Grounded in science, self-compassion, and Goerzen’s personal journey through the "body hatred battleground", you’ll learn to ditch the diet, reclaim an empowered relationship with your body, and become healthier as a result.

With The Elephant in the Gym, you’ll discover: 

  • No gym membership is required to be fit. 
  • Why traditional goal-setting is tripping you up. 
  • The one thing you need to set the foundation for success.
  • What you can do to get started today.
  • Practical strategies, tools, and tips to help you be fit and healthy - for life!  

Deeply personal, backed by detailed studies and real-life stories, you’ll design a lifestyle fit for you and no one else (it’s not one size fits all - and it never should be). The Elephant in the Gym takes your eyes off of the scale and puts the power of creating a healthy life in your hands.

Great Read

Interested in Health and Mindfulness? Stuck in a rut?! Can’t get motivated to be fit? This is such a great listen! Gillian has such an easy voice to listen to and super motivating! She breaks down different ways to take back control of your fitness and digs into connecting to individual ‘whys’ to get fit and different ways that looks to different people.
I am loving it so much I’ve ordered the book!
