Publisher's Summary

Lessons in strength, fitness, food, and attitude from the popular world-champion skier and beauty icon - Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn.

Olympic Alpine skier Lindsey Vonn wants women to stop thinking about "losing weight fast" and instead focus on loving their bodies for what they are and what they can do. Lindsey is a small-town Minnesota girl at heart turned world-champion skier, but that didn't come without hard work. In Strong Is the New Beautiful, Lindsey lays out the never-before-seen training routines and her overall philosophy that have helped her become the best female skier in the world - tailored for women of all shapes and sizes. Lindsey backs up her fitness program with advice on what to eat and how to work out and kicks listeners into high gear, helping bolster their self-confidence and build a better body image with the tips and tricks she's learned as a pro.

This is Lindsey's regimen, and she encourages people to take from it what will work for them. She bounced back from injury not by doing every single thing a trainer said but instead by thinking about the fitness plan that would work for her and eating the right foods that would make her feel and get healthy. In Strong Is the New Beautiful, she interweaves her training and diet regimen with compelling stories of her life growing up in the heartland, her love of skiing, the challenges she's faced - including injuries, illness, and depression - and her secrets to wellness, fitness, and recovery.

Supported by cutting-edge science and the latest studies on health and exercise and filled with routines even those hitting the bunny hill of working out can master, Strong Is the New Beautiful will inspire and motivate you - whether you're an aspiring athlete, want to get back into shape, or are eager to up your game - to make your body stronger than ever before, inside and out.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Good book to start working out from"
    If you could sum up Strong Is the New Beautiful in three words, what would they be?

    Exercise Diet Positivity


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone unsure about the mountain of exercise tips (eat more/less carbs/protein/fat/calories) this book sorts it out. I started exercising at the start of this year and I'm about 10 months in and everything I've learned so far, is said in this book. For me, I went the hard way about it and this book would have cut my time to 4 or 5 months to where I am today. It was great to hear what my self-thought and self-research is close to what Lindsey recommends. For anyone struggling to part with the couch, give this a listen/read. Hopefully it motivates you!

    "Basic book"

    Not very interesting, helpful or inspiring. I probably should have rated it a 2 but I am feeling generous today. I guess if you are really new to working out this may be a bit helpful. Not being read by Lindsey is a bummer if you are a fan and just want to hear her. No idea why she would not read the book herself. She keeps referring to an enhanced version to find some workouts and stuff but never says how to find it.

    "An inspirational woman"
    If you could sum up Strong Is the New Beautiful in three words, what would they be?

    Encouraging, Fitness, Health.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Just do it! (Oh wait, that one is taken.)


    Any additional comments?

    Whether you are already familiar with her accomplishments or you are interested in your own fitness, this was a great book. There were a couple parts that seemed repetitive, but so what? Her fitness, goal orientation and dedication to proper nutrition make this worth reading. Even though I've read other fitness related books, this one really stands out because of her personal story!
