Joe Manganiello announces fitness book deal
Joe Manganiello has a great body — and so can you!
Today, Gallery Books announced it will publish Manganiello’s fitness book (deep breath), Joe Manganiello’s Evolution: The Cutting-Edge Guide to Breaking Down Mental Walls and Building the Body You’ve Always Wanted. Release is slated for January 2014.
The actor is famous for his turns as a beefy, brooding werewolf in True Blood and as a beefy, not-brooding stripper in Magic Mike. Now that mystic physique will be demystified: Manganiello will share his own lifelong experiences with diet and exercise in the book, as well as black-and-white photos and a step-by-step workout routine.
But the biggest promised revelation is the revelation that Manganiello didn’t used to be so big.
“I wasn’t born this way. I was the kid in high school who couldn’t do one dip, one pull up…I was also the kid who never gave up,” he said in a press release. “I’ve spent a huge part of my life seeking out people who could match my willingness and work ethic with planning and technique. This book is the sum total of what I’ve found.”
