In a culture dominated by gym fail memes, sweat patches, and a bit too much grunting, the fitness world is embarrassing enough without not knowing what to do, how to act or what to say. Whether holding your own in a fitness discussion with a high-intensity gym ‘bro’, or nervously stepping onto the treadmill for the first time, The Bluffer’s Guide to Fitness is for everyone who wants to make fitness a part of their daily life. Fitness bluffers of all ages and genders will appreciate the hints, tips and no-nonsense advice on how to bluff your way around a gym, park run or swimming pool; how to pre-empt – and even counter-offer – fitness advice; how to safely break fitness etiquette to your advantage; and how to look and sound fitter than you actually are.

Covering a broad spectrum, from weightlifting and gym classes to home gyms and street fitness, The Bluffer’s Guide to Fitness is essential reading for bluffers wanting to survive a trip to the gym; for bluffers wanting to emerge victorious in a conversation with a fitness expert; and for anyone who has flirted with the idea of fitness after realizing ‘cuddly’ isn’t actually a compliment.
