Meet Nicole Tsong, author of 24 Ways to Move More and former Fit for Life columnist for The Seattle Times, to learn new ways to move your body, and make movement fun and inspiring again. Nicole shares her experience trying hundreds of fitness activities, and talks about how movement helps you feel energized and fulfilled every day.

Your body is made to move and is designed to adapt to a range of activity--climbing, sprinting, carrying heavy things, walking long distances. Yet today we move less than ever before.Yoga instructor and fitness expert Nicole Tsong wants to change that. She has tried hundreds of different types of movement and in this new guide, she shares which of those are the most fun, accessible, and body-beneficial.

Detailing two new activities for each month of the year, she describes her own experiences trying each movement, then lays out a road map for readers to embark on a similar adventure, starting at beginner level and moving up through Reach and Adventure goals. For example, readers can choose to walk 35 to 40 minutes twice a week for the whole month, or they can slowly increase mileage each week working up to a 10-, 15, or 20-mile challenge. Tsong also offers quick tips for getting started, basic gear needs and costs, and a Discovery section with questions, prompts, and journal space so readers can explore their own movement journeys.
