Misty Copeland Is there anything Misty Copeland can’t do?

After making history as the first African-American woman to be made a principal dancer in the 75-year history of American Ballet Theater, penning a best-selling memoir, starring in a documentary, and inspiring millions in Under Armour’s powerful campaign (oh by the way, she’s in Rwanda right now starting a dance program for girls with a nonprofit organization), the talented ballerina is leaping further into the world of health and fitness.

According to the New York Times, Copeland is working on Ballerina Body, which will include meal and exercise plans and advice, and will hit bookstores (AKA the Kindle app) in 2017. “This is the sum of a lifetime of experiences gained through listening to my body and finding what works for it,” she said in a statement to the Times.

Wait…the book won’t be out for a while. This interview with Misty should hold you over until then.
