Michael Joseph nets Kate Wright fitness book

Michael Joseph will publish a health and fitness guide by “The Only Way is Essex” star Kate Wright, exploring how her regime helps to her to overcome anxiety.

The TV personality's first book, Fitter, Happier, Healthier: The Ultimate Body Plan, will be published on 26th December as a trade paperback, retailing at £16.99. Rights were acquired from Gemma Wheatley at Mokkingbird by Charlotte Hardman, publisher of non-fiction at Michael Joseph.

The guide “is developed to help you feel strong, positive and confident, no matter what your size,” Michael Joseph said. “Devised from the exercises and routines Kate loves and uses, this is an ultimate body plan consisting of 20 minute HIIT style routines, designed to work out the whole body,” the synopsis reads. “Alongside the workouts, Kate discusses how she motivates herself, fits in exercise in around her busy family life and how she combats her anxieties. The book also features Kate’s favourite energy-boosting recipes.”

Wright starred on “The Only Way is Essex”, and regularly shares fitness and workout videos with her fiancé, footballer Rio Ferdinand, on Instagram.

Hardman said: “Kate’s regular posts to her huge online community of one million Instagram followers are incredibly inspiring. Not only is she a great fitness ambassador, but she also talks so openly about how working out helps her overcome anxiety too. Her brilliant plan is simple to follow, effective and can fit into even the busiest of lives. I’m so excited to be working with Kate as she shares her passion for leading a healthy lifestyle.”

Wright added: “Working out and keeping fit are a way of life to me, it’s as much about feeling good as it is about looking good. I’m so excited to be releasing a workout plan and some of my general lifestyle tips that anyone can follow at home or in the gym. I hope this book will help everyone to feel fitter, happier and be more accepting of themselves.”
