"Having completed over 56 Ironmans, I can say with certainty learning how your body reacts to high endurance training and racing never stops. It s discouraging to prepare for a race and have it derailed, not because you didn't do the work, but because your body didn't respond on that particular day. Dr. Sims will show you how you can take the steps to toe the start line with the best chance of delivering your maximum potential!
Meredith B. Kessler, professional triathlete

Now all active women have access to the same groundbreaking information that made a significant impact on my career." Lea Davison, Professional mountain bike racer and Olympian

"Exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist Sims presents women with an enlightening guide to fueling and strengthening themselves for peak fitness. As a former athlete, Sims knows firsthand the dangers of following regimens designer for men; her maxim is 'women are not small men.'
