Inhaltsangabe

This is a memoir written and read by two-time CrossFit Games champion, Katrin Davidsdottir. 

Dottir is two-time consecutive CrossFit Games Champion Katrin Davidsdottir's inspiring and poignant memoir. As one of only two women in history to have won the title of “Fittest Woman on Earth” twice, Davidsdottir knows all about the importance of mental and physical strength. She won the title in 2015, backing it up with a second win in 2016, after starting CrossFit in just 2011.  

A gymnast as a youth, Davidsdottir wanted to try new challenges and found a love of CrossFit. But it hasn't been a smooth rise to the top. In 2014, just one year before taking home the gold, she didn't qualify for the Games. She used that loss as motivation and fuel for training harder and smarter for the 2015 Games. She pushed herself and refocused her mental game. Her hard work and perseverance paid off with her return to the Games and subsequent victories in 2015 and 2016. 

In Dottir, Davidsdottir shares her journey with listeners. She details her focus on training, goal setting, nutrition, and mental toughness.

Inspirational look behind the scenes

I can't believe I waited so long to listen to this book! I was already a big fan of Katrin's, and have proudly called her "MY champ" ever since 2015/2016 because of the commitment, intelligence and (super)human efforts she put into building herself as a person and athlete. I respect her work ethic, her growth and her talent, and seeing it come together live at the European Regionals in 2014 (HELLO handstand walking record!!) and at the Games in 2016 was simply electrifying!! Listening to her story here has made her even more relatable and inspiring, and I have even more to respect her for: her honesty and vulnerability. In addition to giving her perspective on her moments of success, she doesn't shy away from sharing and owning up to those that are less flattering. That's remarkable, especially in this day and age when so many individuals are only comfortable sharing their highlight reels. So thank you for telling your story, Katrin -- with all its many colors!! It was riveting, and real.
