Being fit and  healthy is something most of us want to be.  There are tons of fitness and exercise books you can find to suit your needs: from cardio to yoga to keeping those muscles fit, you will surely find one online or on book shelves. Fitness book cover designs have to be straight to the point so as to attract readers as well as tell the readers what the book is about. Below are some examples of fitness books with great designs

1. Body Mind Mastery by Dan Millmanbodymindmastery

Most fitness books have minimalistic covers but the cover of Body Mind Mastery leans toward the artistic side and is definitely visually catchy. The Vitruvian Man on the cover depicts the proportion of the body as well as the mind. The red and orange gradient both both represents the spiritual nature of the book while also giving it a warm feel.  The white color used on the title and the author’s name contrasts well with the background, giving it emphasis which easily catches passer’s attention.








2. Posture Alignment by Paul D’ Arezzoposture alignment

Another fitness book that uses hand-drawn illustrations. The cover is a simple yet fitting illustration of what the book is about. You can see straight lines on the human illustration depicting the alignment of the body. Overall, the cover is clean and fun without lacking the appropriate details to describe the book.









3.  Foundation by Dr. Eric Goodman and Peter Park


The cover is an image focused on the back of a muscular man, which in a metaphoric sense, serves as the foundation of the human body. The silver and gray color enhances the image, depicting a strong mood on the cover. The blue color used on the title contrasts well with the image, easily capturing a passer’s attention without being too hard to read.

About the Author

CJ grew up admiring books. His family owned a small bookstore throughout his early childhood, and he would spend weekends flipping through book after book, always sure to read the ones that looked the most interesting. Not much has changed since then, except now some of those interesting books he picks off the shelf were designed by his company!
