<h1><strong>The Unlikely Olympian</strong></h1><h2><strong>Step into Your Fears To Achieve Your Dream</strong></h2><p><br /></p><p><strong>Danielle Kettlewell wasn’t an Olympian, or so she thought. </strong>There was a huge barrier that stood in the way of her competing for Australia in the world’s largest sporting event, and it wasn’t her fitness, ability or money: it was Danielle Kettlewell.<br /></p><p>In her book, <strong>‘The Unlikely Olympian’</strong> Danielle reveals how the little voice inside her head whispering ‘what if…’ was her savior, the two-letter catalyst that pushed her to go through the process of trialing for the Games. While for many the dedication and commitment to training would take its toll, Danielle also had to juggle her inner emotions. Self-doubt, a lack of confidence and fear were her enemies but, as she grew physically stronger through training and exercise, she also developed mental processes that challenged her thought patterns and self-doubts. Dreams became a possibility…<br /></p><p>Prepare as Danielle takes you on her journey through her emotions and thought patterns that may (or may not) lead her to Rio 2016. Prepare not to be a bystander; come on the journey for your own good. Along the way, you will learn how to acknowledge, how to address and how to change your mindset for the better. While competing at the Olympic Games might not be your challenge, Danielle’s experience and learning tools apply to all.<br /></p><h2><strong>The Unlikely Olympian will show you… </strong></h2><ul><li>How the key to change is to accept that something needs to happen. Danielle opens about her fears and feelings in a way that allows the reader to do the same. If something is holding you back from achieving your dreams, now is the time to do something about it.</li><li>How to acknowledge and re-address your Limiting Self Beliefs (LSB). By recognising the thought patterns that hold us back in life, you will notice them, pick them apart and, ultimately, move forwards.</li><li>How to reach out for help. While many self-help books focus on doing all the hard work alone, Danielle encourages you to seek advice and inspiration from outside sources. In combination with your inner-beliefs and guidance, the two form a powerhouse that helps you to achieve your goals and vanquish self-doubts.</li><li>How to ignite your passions so that you are on a journey you enjoy.  If there’s something you love to do – now’s the time.</li><li>How to recognise your gifts and your abilities – they are there, realise them.</li><li>How to use setbacks and challenges as opportunities for growth and resilience.</li><li>How to get your mojo back – essential reading if you’ve been stagnating.</li><li>How to face fear and work through it. A challenge isn’t a genuine challenge if you don’t meet some adversity along the way!</li><li>How to become self-aware – and how to learn from your new found awareness.</li><li>How to be present and grateful – training your mindset to one of thankfulness.</li></ul><p>Only you truly know if you are held back by limited self-doubts, fear and a lack of confidence. If you see the words and like the way they sound, only you can imagine what it might feel like to experience them, to internalise them and let them play out in your life.<br /></p><p>In the words of Danielle Kettlewell, <em>“We are who we believe that we are – so make sure the belief is in alignment with your soul’s desire to be who you KNOW you CAN be.”</em></p>

<p><strong>A <em>New York Times</em> Sports and Fitness Bestseller<br /><br /><br /><br />An eye-opening exploration of how the human body can best recover and adapt to sports and fitness training.</strong></p><br /><p>In recent years <em>recovery</em> has become a sports and fitness buzzword. Anyone who works out or competes at any level is bombarded with the latest recovery products and services: from drinks and shakes to compression sleeves, foam rollers, electrical muscle stimulators, and sleep trackers.</p><br /><p>In <em>Good to Go</em>, acclaimed <em>FiveThirtyEight</em> science writer Christie Aschwanden takes readers on an entertaining and enlightening tour through this strange world. She investigates whether drinking Gatorade or beer after training helps or hinders performance; she examines the latest trends among athletes, from NFL star Tom Brady’s infrared pajamas to gymnast Simone Biles’ pneumatic compression boots to swimmer Michael Phelps’s “cupping” ritual; and she tests some of the most controversial methods herself, including cryochambers, float tanks, and infrared saunas.</p><br /><p>At a time when the latest recovery products and services promise so much, <em>Good to Go</em> seeks answers to the fundamental question: Do any of them actually help the body recover and achieve peak performance?</p>

<b>From a two-time Olympic coach and creator of the Pose Method who has trained the running elite, an essential guide for all runners seeking to go faster and farther without injury</b><br /><br /> Christopher McDougall’s <i>Born to Run</i>—and the wildly popular natural running trend it sparked—changed the way we think about running, but it has also prompted many questions: Have we been running the wrong way? And, have we been running in the wrong kind of shoe? What is the safest type of foot strike? How many types are there? And what is a foot strike anyway? No existing guide has clearly addressed these concerns—until now. <i>The Running Revolutio</i>n provides both beginning and experienced runners with everything they need to know in order to safely and efficiently transition to and master a safer and more biomechanically efficient way of running that is guaranteed to improve performance and minimize wear and tear on the body.  <br /><br /> More than a one-size-fits-all guide, <i>The Running Revolutio</i>n provides readers with clear instructions, complete with helpful illustrations, that they can easily integrate into their unique running histories in order to run safely, intelligently, and efficiently for many years to come.

Are you a triathlete, runner, cyclist, swimmer, cross-country skier, or other athlete seeking greater endurance? The Big Book of Endurance Training and Racing teaches athletes how to stay healthy, achieve optimal athletic potential, and be injury-free for many productive years. Dr. Philip Maffetone’s approach to endurance offers a truly “individualized” outlook and unique system that emphasizes building a strong aerobic base for increased fat burning, weight loss, sustained energy, and a healthy immune system. Good nutrition and stress reduction are also key to this commonsense, big-picture approach.<br /><br /> In addition, Dr. Maffetone dispels many of the commonly held myths that linger in participatory sports—and which adversely impact performance—and explains the “truths” about endurance, such as: <ul><li> The need to train slower to race faster will enable your aerobic system to improve endurance </li><li> Why expensive running shoes can actually cause foot and leg injuries </li><li> The fact that refined carbohydrates actually reduce endurance energy and disrupt hormone balance </li><li> And more. </li></ul> If you are looking to increase your endurance and maximize your athletic potential, <i>The Big Book of Endurance Training and Racing</i> is your one-stop guide to training and racing effectively.

Aside from her rock star looks, Catra Corbett is a standout in the running world on her accomplishments alone. Catra is the first American woman to run over one hundred miles or more on more than one hundred occasions and the first to run one hundred and two hundredmiles in the Ohlone Wilderness, and she holds the fastest known double time for the 425-miles long John Muir Trail, completing it in twelve days, four hours, and fifty-seven minutes. <br /> <br /> And, unbelievably, she's also a former meth addict. <br /> <br /> After two years of addiction, Catra is busted while selling, and a night in jail is enough to set her straight. She gives up drugs and moves back home with her mother, abandoning her friends, her boyfriend, and the lifestyle that she came to depend on. Her only clean friend pushes her to train for a 10K with him, and surprisingly, she likes it?and decides to run her first marathon after that. <br /> <br /> In <i>Reborn on the Run</i>, the reader keeps pace with Catra as she runs through difficult terrain and extreme weather, is stalked by animals in the wilderness, and nearly dies on a training run but continues on, smashing running records and becoming one of the world?s best ultrarunners. Along the way she attempts suicide, loses loved ones, falls in love, has her heartbroken, meets lifelong friends including her running partner and dachshund TruMan, and finally faces the past that led to her addiction.
