Carrie Underwood is writing a fitness book to help lead people ‘toward a positive lifestyle’

Carrie Underwood is currently on a quick break during her Cry Pretty Tour 360. She’s also getting ready to host the CMA Awards on November 13. It makes sense that Carrie used the lull to announce Wednesday that she’s writing her first book, FIND YOUR PATH: Honor Your Body, Fuel Your Soul, and Get Strong with the Fit52 Life (Holy subtitle, Batman!):

Underwood, 36, will introduce readers to her Fit52 program, as well as delve into her personal journey and how she navigated the “pressure to look perfect,” according to the press release.

“Fitness and healthy living have been a passion of mine for years,” the mother of two said in a statement to PEOPLE. “It took time to find my way and navigate my wellness journey, and this book will provide tips and tools to help the reader find what is practical and sustainable in his or her everyday life for all 52 weeks of the year, and help lead them toward a positive lifestyle.”

People notes that Carrie founded the fitness brand, CALIA, so this seems like a natural extension of that work. The article also stresses that the book isn’t going to be a typical diet book:

Rather than focusing on a fad diet or workout program, she wants people to find a routine that’s easily incorporated into their daily lives. The goal? She wants to guide her fans on a lifelong path to health.

Accordingly, Carrie is also going to “get personal,” and will talk about “her passion for sports as a kid, to the pressure to look perfect and fit the mold as she launched her career after winning American Idol, to eventually discovering the importance of balance and the meaning of true health.”

Carrie’s fitness routine is “simple and practical,” according to senior editor Jessica Sindler. I’m sure that many of Carrie’s fans will jump at the chance to follow Carrie’s wellness routine when the book comes out next year from Dey Street Books. (The same HarperCollins imprint is releasing Lindsey Vonn’s memoir, too, and I just discovered that it published the graphic novel about President Obama and Vice President Biden teaming up to save the world.) Getting back to Carrie, I am so wary of and uninterested in celebrity-created/touted diets. As the press release specifically says that Carrie’s routine doesn’t involve any “fads” and isn’t focused on a specific diet, maybe hers will be one that people will find helpful.

    Urgh.
    She gathered information from professionals. Professionals should be writing books.
    Give me Linda Hamilton any day of the week. I can’t with these celebrities, already filthy rich, trying to get my money by working on society’s insecurities while stating exactly the opposite.
    We have really hit the absurdist state of the absurd.

    • Savannah says:

      I agree with you 100%.

      She just made me want to eat tons of pasta, smoke a pack of cigarettes, drink lots and lots of beer while lying on the couch bringing some Netflix show.

    Our planet is burning while rich people distract us with the fantasy of a perfect life as long as our bodies represent a sort of capitalistic dream: both perfect and always needing more exercise, more moisturizer, more surgery.

    The word wellness annoys me so much: it’s like people know that having 2 weeks of holiday a year and no paid parental leave makes any type of true body health impossible so just find more time you don’t have to put some bubble bath with caviar in it and do crunches and call it self care.

    • Snowslow says:

      Thank you! I just went on a rant about this in Oprah’s post :-)

    • Savannah says:

      YES!
      And this self-love/self-care industry is not really teaching self-love is it..?
      It takes more to fix problems for ordinary working class people than some freaking lotion made of magicals salamanders or buying a book about how doing squats in our lunch breaks will transform our lives.

      Celebrities show us perfect lives we all should be having while capitalizing on the very truth that we never will. Cause it’s not real. None of that fakery is.

  3. Millennial says:

    I mean, she’s a vegan (and not a junk food vegan) and she works out almost every day. It’s not rocket science.

  4. Sean says:

    A celebrity writing a fitness/lifestyle book? Wow, this is revolutionary! It never even crossed my mind this could be done. A game-changer for sure.

  5. DS9 says:

    I’m not interested in a fitness book co-authored by a woman who has such an unhealthy view of her own body.

    • Kat says:

      This⬆️. In every interview I’ve read she is always speaking about her body in a negative and obsessive way. I don’t need another celebrity who spends countless dollars and hours to achieve “perfection” tell me about a “healthy balance”. And I don’t like her fitness gear, which is just me being mean bc I have a head cold.

    • Tourmaline says:

      Agree, I always get unsettled vibes from Carrie and don’t want her advice.

  6. morningjacket says:

    Carrie Underwood is my mortal enemy. Her name is forbidden in my home. The squawking she passes off for singing makes my teeth hurt. I do not understand her popularity.

  7. Mama says:

    Oh. Ok.

    *eyeroll*

  8. Mar says:

    What was all the hoopla with her scarred face? Remember they said we won’t recognize her? I don’t see anything wrong with her at all.

  9. SJR says:

    No thanks Carrie.
    Save some trees and not buy another empty celeb written book.

  10. Harryg says:

    I’m sick of fitness already, and I have sort of started to hate the “fitness body” pushed everywhere.

  11. Purrrr says:

    Not going to read another vapid celeb book but I want to know where those earrings are from.

  12. Savannah says:

    I wonder when a celebrity will write a book about the power of rest and recovery from everyday life and hardship?

    • Senator Fan says:

      LOL! This is perfect!

      I don’t know why but she rubs me the wrong way. I don’t buy anything she’s selling as she comes across as fake to me. She could be a really nice person but that doesn’t translate and seems empty, vain and insecure.
