Mia is writing her first book, Diamonds on the Floor: Why Exercise Works. It is a sassy, funny, beginner's guide to exercise for everyone who is embarrassed, confused, or retaining memories of gym class terrors. This book isn't about changing your weight, changing your shape, or changing anything about yourself because somebody else wants you to change it. Instead, this book will alter your self-image by promoting the groundbreaking idea that you and your body are already pretty fly. Oh, and badass. This book is actually about badassery. Recognize your inner excellence; everything else will follow.

Excerpts from her book can be found on her Instagram account, @thebossiraptor. She's kind of an asshole, but she's a friendly asshole. Rawr.
