The world champion skier and Olympic gold medalist outlines a fitness program tailored for women of all shapes and sizes and includes advice on nutrition and how to work out.



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 readers 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, filled with routines even those hitting the bunny hill of working out can master, and illustrated with dozens of workout shots and photos from Lindsey's own collection, 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.

I don't remember how I came across this title, but it was in my most recent library haul so I gave it a try. This isn't your typical book, it is more of a workout guide, cookbook, healthy living tutorial. Although I wouldn't necessarily say I am the target audience for this book, I did walk away with some great little nuggets. First, I really appreciate that it focuses on strength (not losing weight, not a specific diet, not on being skinny, etc). Also, I'm stoked she includes different workouts for different levels of fitness. Lastly, I think it was the kick in the pants I needed to actually start adding strength training back in to my regimen. I have gotten lazy in that department (although I have been doing a squat, push-up, plank and crunch challenge {actually four separate challenges} this month, so maybe that is the jumpstart, along with this book, that I needed). I wouldn't say this is one I would recommend folks to buy (I'm sure you can find similar information online, for free), but since I checked it out of the library it worked for me. I would give it a 6 out of 10.

This isn't another athlete's book that preaches the same thing over and and and exercise.

Lindsey stresses the importance of being active through sports and activities that YOU like. Same with diet. Finding things the reader likes and incorporating them into your every day diet.

This is a wonderful book that focuses on clean eating, movement and mindset. I enjoyed reading Lindsey's athletic and health journey, and the plentiful tips and resources on clean eating, meal ideas, fitness (including a great chapter on warming up!).
