SuperGym: Get Fit Or Die Trying comes out in three weeks! I am beyond excited for this book to come out. The story involves three main characters. Let's meet them!
Benjamin Pratt is a health guru and the supreme leader of Famecili. His plan for a healthier city involves a three pronged approach. Every citizen in Famecili is required to join a SuperGym and work with a SuperGym Trainer. Their diets are strictly monitored and controlled by his team of Dieticians. If, for some unforeseen reason, his plan fails, Fat Camp waits for the failures. Mr. Pratt is relentless and cruel in his pursuit of perfection. He will stop at nothing to make his city into the ideal.
Maggie is a terrible client. Possibly one of the worst in SuperGym history. She doesn't follow her plan. She only gives about 50% during workouts, and she sneaks the illegal snack foods, Junkies, whenever she can. Her weight remains stubbornly the same or occasionally increases.
Maggie is special. She hears voices and has strange powers that seem to protect her. Mr. Pratt is obsessed with making her into the ideal, though she should have been sent to Fat Camp years ago.
Thor is the Head of the SuperGym Trainers. He is the best of the best. The ideal. He is Mr. Pratt's right hand man and is soon assigned Maggie as his only client. A special case that only he can fix.
Maggie brings out a different side of Thor. She makes him feel things. Thor hates feelings. They confuse him and make him think. Thor is much more comfortable barking orders and being in control. Maggie makes him question everything he's been taught and his resolution is beginning to fail.
