Star Trek: Body by Starfleet: A Fitness Guide
Are you bold enough to go to Vulcan Side Planks and Cardassian Neck Tricks? Star Trek: Body by Starfleet: A Fitness Guide is probably the most fun parody book of a popular franchise I've seen since Darth Vader and Son.
Written by Robb Pearlman Star Trek: Body by Starfleet is "a fully illustrated guide that bridges the nexus between stasis and health." Combining some of the most popular elements of 5 decades' worth of Star Trek with a catalogue of 30+ body-burning exercises and stretches Star Trek's biggest fans probably hate big-time, the fitness companion provides simple, easy-to-follow instructions for each move alongside a fleet member acting them out for you. And, yes, Pearlman did create Body by Starfleet in consultation with a certified trainer. (Hint: it was Data. He sped-read an online course.)
Enterprising Starfleet body seekers can enhance their fitness quest with the guide's section on nutrition. In addition to those mentioned above, some exercises you'll find in Star Trek: Body by Starfleet: A Fitness Guide include Klingon Tribble Twists, Chekov's Cossack Squats, Jefferies Tube Climbers, and Wesley Crunchers.
