My Fun-Filled Fitness Folio First Impressions

When I pitched Hashtag Press to review this book I had no idea what it was about. I was just going on the title, which pleased me alliteratively. Plus it’s super fun to say! Try saying “My Fun Filled Fitness Folio” really fast five times!

I thought that folio was probably an abbreviation of portfolio and was anticipating a new exercise routine book. As some of my more avid readers may know, I’m a huge advocate of fitness being fun! If it’s not fun then it’s time to try something new until you find a fun way to move your body.

I was excited to read a publication from another believer of fun first fitness! I was also curious to find out what the author Neeta Oza considered to be fun.

Her enthusiasm for fitness and overall wellness oozes from the pages of My Fun-Filled Fitness Folio.

About the My Fun-Filled Fitness Folio

My Fun-Filled Fitness Folio is a gorgeous, pocket size, A-Z of all things fitness. It’s the perfect size to slip into your handbag to fill those moments waiting for the tube, or a cup of coffee, to arrive.

It is a book that gently encourages you to go out and find your own fun route to fitness. There’s no drill sergeant shouting here! Just plenty to learn in bite size chunks. Including; how to not compete with yourself so heavily, the origins of Pilates, balance and rest in fitness and, my favourite, the F-word Flow.

My one criticism of this book is that it does moralise food on one page. Even glossing over it, this has coloured my view of the author and the entire book somewhat. When trying hard to move away from diet culture and a lifetime of moralising food and fitness, it is discouraging to find mention of “naughty foods” in a fun-filled fitness folio.
