Abbie Gets Fit is the endearing and compelling true story of one nine-year-old girl’s daily journey to get fit. Motivated by a failed fitness exam at her school, Abbie and her dad set out on a 6 month quest to improve her fitness level and prepare for the next exam. With a rain or shine, sixty minute fitness walk as the foundation of their daily program, Abbie’s fitness transformation was remarkable, and the bond she and her father forged as a result has changed their relationship forever. This book is a must read for any parent or child looking for the inspiration to adopt a more active and fit lifestyle. In fact, Abbie was the featured speaker at last year’s annual meeting of The President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition, where her story was highlighted by Assistant Secretary of Health Dr. Howard Koh as ‘an exceptional model for parent and child exercise engagement’.
