Review: Strong by Zanna Van Dijk.


First of all, if you haven’t heard of Zanna or come across her YouTube channel go check it out now!

She is a great inspirational figure on a fitness, nutrition and general health and well being level. I often find myself stumbling upon her most recent videos when taking a study break or having some chill time.

Her book ‘Strong’ is great for workout ideas and how to go about starting up an exercise schedule. She goes over the basics of nutrition too and the book includes some great recipe ideas which I will definitely be trying out soon! Probably most importantly the book goes into the topics of mindfulness and self love which everyone should be adapting. When it comes to eating I, for one should adapt a more mindful approach. I find I more or less inhale my food and always finish before everyone else. Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love food but perhaps taking a more mindful approach would increase this even more. There is a whole page of this in the book.


The book is also filled with inspirational quotes, my favourite being: “Your mind will quit 100 times before your body ever does”. I feel so many of us can relate to this in a variety of situations, whether that is exercise – wanting to stop for a rest when running, not completing that last burpee of the set, or even in a real life work or uni situation where you are finding something difficult. Don’t give up! Take a step back, breathe and reflect, You will succeed a whole lot better.

Altogether a great informative book which will inspire anyone who reads it to make change. Highly recommend!
