First-prize fitness competitor and personal trainer Valeria Teles invites you to reflect on the idea that joy is an ever-present choice.
From a young age, Valeria yearned for a life that would bring her joy. She hoped to find it in relationships and a successful career, but neither brought a genuine smile to her face. She then discovered fitness, which became her escape – keeping her even further from the truth, until she could no longer live without joy.
During a meditative period away from the fitness world, Valeria learned that exercise and enjoyment belong together, and that forgiveness is essential for personal healing.
Now a student of Buddha’s teachings, she shares her vision for conventional fitness that is integrated with emotional and spiritual well-being.
Fit for Joy will inspire you to establish a harmonious mind-body connection that is based on self-knowledge and self-love. Insightful and tender, this book will show you how freedom, joy, and peace come from courage, and that courage can be found by being true to yourself.
