    Reversal, normalization and self-care – three logics of countering body shame through fitness activities among young Danes

    This article by Carsten Stage and Stinne Bach Nielsen explores the relationship between body shame and fitness through interviews with 20 young Danes (age 15–24) who use a fitness centre at least twice a week as part of a process of self-defined bodily transformation. The analysis shows that body shame is a well-known feeling for a vast majority of the informants and that fitness is used by them to counter body shame in three ways that are analyzed in the article.
