1455502677 : I'm Here To Win: A World Champion's Advice for Peak Performance
ISBN: 1455502677

 
Author: Chris McCormack

The Ironman World Championship is one of the most grueling tests of mental and physical endurance and athleticism in the world. Its competitors have 17 hours to swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles and run a full marathon, 26.2 miles. Chris McCormack has dedicated his life to training for-and winning– this race, a feat he has accomplished twice, along with winning the Australian Ironman five years in a row and coming in first at both the Triathlon World Championships and the International Triathlon Union World Cup.

But his journey to athletic greatness is more than one of just physical endurance. I’M HERE TO WIN is McCormack’s account of everything it takes-mind, body and spirit — to become a champion.

In 2010, McCormack silenced his critics when he won the Hawaiian Ironman Championship at 37. He ran the race not just for himself, but for his late mother and the charity he founded in her honor to fight breast cancer. He now had a purpose, a passion, and something to drive him beyond himself.

While Macca gives much credit to his physical performance, he believes his success comes from what he does before and after the race as much as during. In I’M HERE TO WIN he will share some of his most important training tips and Macca-isms, short bits of wisdom such as: Know yourself, listen to your body and mind, do the right thing today and trust the results without worrying about tomorrow.

Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain

ISBN: 1439177783

 
Author: Portia de Rossi

?I didn?t decide to become anorexic. It snuck up on me disguised as a healthy diet, a professional attitude. Being as thin as possible was a way to make the job of being an actress easier . . .?

Portia de Rossi weighed only 82 pounds when she collapsed on the set of the Hollywood film in which she was playing her first leading role. This should have been the culmination of all her years of hard work?first as a child model in Australia, then as a cast member of one of the hottest shows on American television. On the outside she was thin and blond, glamorous and successful. On the inside, she was literally dying.

In this searing, unflinchingly honest book, Portia de Rossi captures the complex emotional truth of what it is like when food, weight, and body image take priority over every other human impulse or action. She recounts the elaborate rituals around eating that came to dominate hours of every day, from keeping her daily calorie intake below 300 to eating precisely measured amounts of food out of specific bowls and only with certain utensils. When this wasn?t enough, she resorted to purging and compulsive physical exercise, driving her body and spirit to the breaking point.

Even as she rose to fame as a cast member of the hit television shows Ally McBeal and Arrested Development, Portia alternately starved herself and binged, all the while terrified that the truth of her sexuality would be exposed in the tabloids. She reveals the heartache and fear that accompany a life lived in the closet, a sense of isolation that was only magnified by her unrelenting desire to be ever thinner. With the storytelling skills of a great novelist and the eye for detail of a poet, Portia makes transparent as never before the behaviors and emotions of someone living with an eating disorder.

From her lowest point, Portia began the painful climb back to a life of health and honesty, falling in love with and eventually marrying Ellen DeGeneres, and emerging as an outspoken and articulate advocate for gay rights and women?s health issues.

In this remarkable and beautifully written work, Portia shines a bright light on a dark subject. A crucial book for all those who might sometimes feel at war with themselves or their bodies, Unbearable Lightness is a story that inspires hope and nourishes the spirit.

Zero Regrets: Be Greater Than Yesterday

145160906X : Zero Regrets: Be Greater Than Yesterday
ISBN: 145160906X

 
Author: Apolo Anton Ohno

?Zero regrets. It?s a philosophy not just about sport but about life. School, business, academics, love?anything and everything. It?s complicated and yet not. You have to figure out who it is you want to be. Not what you want to be?who. There has to be a vision, a dream, a plan. Then you chase that with everything you?ve got.?

Over three consecutive Olympic games, Apolo Ohno has come to symbolize the very best of the competitive spirit?remaining equally gracious in victory and defeat, always striving to improve his performance, and appreciating the value of the hard work of training as much as any reward it might bring. In Zero Regrets, Apolo shares the inspiring personal story behind his remarkable success, as well as the hard-won truths and strategies he has discovered in good times and bad.

Raised by his single father, an immigrant from Japan who often worked twelve-hour days, the young Apolo found it difficult to balance his enormous natural gifts as an athlete with an admittedly wild, rebellious streak. After making a name for himself as a promising young speed skater, his career was almost over before it began when his lack of preparation caused him to finish last at the U.S. Olympic trials in 1998. A life-changing week of solitary soul-searching at the age of fifteen led him to recommit himself to his training, and at the 1999 world junior championships he won first place overall?one of the most remarkable turnarounds in sports history. From that moment on, the world of speed skating had a new champion and Apolo was on his way to legendary status.

Much more than an account of races won and lost, Zero Regrets is a compelling portrait of a father-and-son relationship that deepened over time and was based on respect, love, and unshakable faith in each other. For the first time, Apolo reveals what he knows about his long-absent mother; he makes us feel what it is like to face the best competitors on the planet with the eyes of millions of fans upon you; and he shares his secrets for achieving total focus and mental toughness, secrets that can be applied in situations well beyond sports. We learn the details of the unbelievably intense workout and diet that he endured while training for the 2010 Winter Olympics, a regime that literally reshaped his body and led to some of his most thrilling victories.

In this deeply personal and entertaining book, Apolo shows how we can all come closer to living with zero regrets. While Apolo?s own journey may be unique, the insights he has gleaned along the way have the power to help us all feel like champions every day.

?

Nine days after dropping me off, Dad came to pick me up.

In that call from the pay phone, I hadn?t said anything to him about what decision I had made. On the car ride back home, I told him. ?I want to try this,? I said.

?Are you willing,? he asked, ?to really put forth a true effort? From the bone??

I told my father: ?I want to skate.?

With clarity of purpose, everything suddenly seemed different. I didn?t just want to skate?I loved it. I realized, too, that while I had to want to buy into the training, the discipline, the self-sacrifice, I needed direction and guidance, too. You truly can?t get there by yourself. I needed not only to truly and profoundly depend upon Dad for help but also to welcome those?coaches, trainers, others?who could help me along the way. . . .

I was also making promises to myself and writing them in my journal:

I?m not going to mess it up this time. When I go home, I really am going to be the different person I decided in Iron Springs I would be. I know what I want to do. I want to be the best in the world.

I didn?t know quite yet how I would get there. But I was clear, and I had no doubt? that?s what I was after.
