You have learned how to write an exercise book and now you need to learn how to get a fitness book published. The process for describing an exercise routine is similar to publishing an exercises book in that it is best to follow a routine and focus on the bigger muscles -- or the bigger details -- before working the smaller ones.
Fitness book publishing is a business of constant change. Consumers want engaging and entertaining books to help them with their exercise and fitness goals. There are a few key items to keep in mind as you start searching for exercise and fitness book publishers:
1. You can publish a fitness book quickly and get it to consumers faster by using an e-book publisher.
2. You want your book to stand out in the crowd, so know the fitness book publishing market by researching what is already out there.
3. You are targeting people with busy schedules who want to get fit, so an exercise book containing easy-to-follow pictures and brief narratives should be a goal.
Don't break a sweat while finding publishers for fitness booksIdentifying a fitness and exercise book publisher for your manuscript may take a little effort, but with patience you will be able to create a list to work with.
Consider alternative options for publishing an exercise bookIf the challenge to find a fitness book publisher is too demanding, or if you simply want your book published without following the traditional route of using an agent or publishing house, you should consider e-book publishers and self-publishing.

Remember that personalities come into play and you want a relationship that compliments your goals, similar to a physical trainer and trainee.
