The Great Fitness Experiment


Author, former professor, and exercise connoisseur, Charlotte Hilton Andersen wanted to get back in shape after her third baby. Then fourth, And fifth. When Charlotte got overwhelmed by contradictory exercise advice, she devised The Great Fitness Experiment, which became both a book and her website. She tried a new workout each month to discover what worked, what didn’t, and what was just plain weird. In that first year, she delved into the Action Hero Workout, Cross Fit Training, Going Vegan, Double Cardio, and others. She is now in year 5 and still trying a new workout at least once a month.
