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 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 would recommend this book hands down. I have followed the exact same eating program given to me by my trainer at my gym. Also, my trainer has had me follow almost exactly the same exercise plans that Lindsay recommends. I lost 22pounds in 2015 before this book was written so it feels great to know that an Olympic athlete and I share the same eating and exercise plans. Listening to Lindsay's ski injuries cements how when you're asking for the top limit of your body's effort, your strength and nutrition has got to be on target to keep your game up. I'm 57 and have rheumatoid arthritis. In the past because of this disease I have been on a walker, a cane and have had my hip replaced. I have been bed ridden with pain waking up at all hours of the night/morning to need to take a hot bath, 2 Tylenol3 pills and a gin and tonic to quell the pain. I knew I had to get strong to be my pain free self again. My trainers plan in 2015 for me was identical to this book. It works. And I keep it up or else I'd be lame again. Now I can work 7 days a week mucking stalls and caring for my 5 horses and their barn and I am riding again, competing whenever possible. Without this strengthen plan I would be crippled. I have my life back!

    She talks too much about her skiing injuries and career. I would not recommend this book for healthy eat plan, nutritional facts, or goal to achieve physically. This is not a clean eating guide as I hoped.
