The iconic television show American Idol has undoubtedly followed through on its apparent ambition, that is: to discover and lionize the nation’s next great vocalists. However literal the name of the show was originally intended to be, the concept of following someone ascending to the heights of celebrity status in a pop-culture-saturated society is fascinating, if not enthralling.
Still, an introspective subsequent question could be: is this person worth idolizing? This term has of course become a figure of speech, with a meaning more along the lines of devoted discipleship, rather than actual worship. Still, not every person in the public spotlight exhibits behavior worthy of mimicking. For those seeking to maintain an active lifestyle, one of the show’s biggest stars is proving herself in this regard.
Next year, Carrie Underwood’s fitness tips are set to graduate from social media to the printing press, according to an article this week from People. Story author Sam Gillette detailed the news, including quotes from Underwood, writing:
On Wednesday, the CMA Awards host announced that FIND YOUR PATH: Honor Your Body, Fuel Your Soul, and Get Strong with the Fit52 Life will be published by Dey Street Books in 2020.
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.”
Already the founder and lead designer of the fitness brand CALIA, Underwood will teach readers her approach to working out, eating healthy, and feeling beautiful all year round.
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.
Perhaps “Something in the Water” will take on new meaning if Underwood gives any tips on hydration.
