Misty Copeland, who made history this year when she became the first black female principal dancer in the history of American Ballet Theater, will write a health and fitness guide, according to the New York Times.

The dancer, who made her Broadway debut in the recent revival of On the Town, will release "Ballerina Body" in early 2017 on the Grand Central Life & Style label, a Hachette imprint.

The new book, according to the Times, will include "meal plans, exercise regimens and motivational advice for dancers and nondancers."

In a statement Copeland said, "This is the sum of a lifetime of experiences gained through listening to my body and finding what works for it."

Copeland has also penned a memoir ("Life in Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina") as well as a children's book ("Firebird").
