Since winning American Idol in 2005, millions have come to admire Carrie Underwood for her tremendous talent, down-to-earth style, and dedication to health and fitness. As a multi-Platinum award-winning singer, songwriter, and lifestyle entrepreneur, it’s easy to see why fans not only eagerly anticipate each new album, but also closely follow what she does to stay fit – tracking her workouts and healthy eating tips on social media. And with her debut book, FIND YOUR PATH, Carrie shares with readers a sustainable, common-sense approach to staying active, eating well, and looking as beautiful as you feel.

Throughout FIND YOUR PATH, Carrie opens up about her personal journey towards optimal health, from her passion for sports as a kid, to the pressure to look perfect and fit the mold as she launched her career, to eventually discovering the importance of balance and the meaning of true health. For Carrie, being fit isn’t about crash diets or a workout routine that you’re going to dread. It’s about healthy choices and simple meals that you can put together from the ingredients in your local grocery store, and making the time, every day, to move, to love your body, and to be the best version of yourself. “Health and fitness are something I am truly, deeply passionate about,” says Underwood, and urges readers of FIND YOUR PATH to “do their best most of the time.” Her mantra is that fitness is a lifelong journey—not about perfection—and this book will set her fans on a path to health, and taking care of their bodies and souls, for life.

Like all of us, Carrie is constantly on the move. Whether its touring for her latest album, scrambling after her 5 and 1-year-old sons, or her role as lead designer of CALIA By Carrie Underwood, she knows the struggle of trying to balance the demands of a household, a business, and a career against carving out time for herself. In FIND YOUR PATH, Carrie shares simple ideas for refocusing your energy and jump starting your fitness journey without feeling like you’re adding to the never-ending to-do list. All readers need is a deck of 52 playing cards and they’ll have unlocked the key to her fitness success! Each suit indicates an exercise and the number corresponds to the amount of reps. Using Carrie’s Fit52 workout, the routines are kept fresh and exciting making fitness a treat, not a chore. Plus, Carrie devotes an entire chapter to revealing the coveted workout that maintains her (second) most famous attribute—her legs!

She also shares her path from her early days in Checotah, Oklahoma and to American Idol and beyond, with chapters inspired by many of her hit songs including “Love Wins” (Getting Strong, Finding Balance and Prioritizing Body Love), “Play On” (introducing her Fit52 Workout), “The Champion” (Extracurricular Fitness for Wherever You Are) and “Before You Cheat,” in which she takes on Vice Management and Derailers. While FIND YOUR PATH is infused with wisdom and advice from Carrie’s own experiences, she also highlights helpful tips and tricks from her longtime personal trainer, Eve Overland, and her friend, nutritionist Cara Clark, providing readers with a personal and holistic view of her routine. Some insights include:

  •  Balance and sustainability: you don’t have to be perfect every day, just maintain a healthy lifestyle 52 weeks a year
    •    Stay accountable: track meals, workouts, and progress and you’ll be set up for success
    •    Simple swaps: make healthy switches for your favorite indulgences
    •    Falling in love with fitness and healthy, nourishing foods will make you feel better overall

Filled with beautiful, original photography by Cameron Premo, FIND YOUR PATH reinforces Carrie’s mantra that there’s no one way to be fit. There is no one diet to follow. There is no one place you must exercise. Healthy living is about options and personal choices, and like a deck of cards (which Carrie uses in the Fit52 workout), you can take your pick as long as you get the results you want and feel good!

Carrie is currently making her way up the country charts with her latest song, “Drinking Alone.”

Audio / Carrie Underwood talks about her own path to fitness, which she details in her new book..


Carrie Underwood (fitness path) OC: …feel better. 1:01
“It took a while to find my right path to fitness and health, but it’s something I’ve always been interested in, and the older I got, you start cooking for yourself when your teenagers and 20s and all that stuff. You kind of start looking at the fine print and you start learning about nutrition, if that’s what you want to do, and that’s what I wanted to do and started feeling better and started feeling better about myself. Now that I’m a mom and a wife and all that, it’s very important to be a good example for my children and teach them healthy eating habits and healthy habits for their bodies, because I want them to live a healthy, wonderful, happy lives as long as they possibly can, and I on the flipside want to be around for them. So, I feel like that’s a reason that I do what I do. We definitely had some trial and error along the way. We talk about that in the book and maybe we can keep people from making the same errors that I made and cut right to the chase to a lifestyle that is sustainable and will make people feel better.”
