Publisher's Summary

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.

Amazing!

I give Katrin a lot of credit for opening up about herself. Her story inspiring and uplifting. The story of her grandmother really resonated with me since I lost mine around the same time. I would recommend the book to people who are not into CrossFit since a lot of her story is about overcoming adversity. Knowing Crossfit and The Games just gives you some context. Another book I would listen to multiple times. Thank you for sharing your story.

Meh...

I’m a long time fan of Katrin Davidsdottir and when I heard she was coming out with a book I was so excited!
I’m still glad I was able to listen to her story but in parts it was not much to listen to.

This made my heart sing!

I am just starting out on my training to compete and this is an amazing motivation. It helps remind me we all start somewhere as well as give some advice on how to get out of the ruts we all experience as humans.

Thank you for this wonderful gift, Katrin!

Great for the CrossFit community!

I’ve been doing CrossFit for 10 years now and this was amazing to hear someone I look up to tell their story. Sometimes we get caught up in how people like this aren’t even human, and it’s eye opening to hear they have bad days and struggles and don’t want to train everyday sometimes. It is inspiring to hear where her motivation comes from and how she strives to be the best (not only athlete) but person she can be.
Loved it! Recommend.

Amazing

This book is a very easy listen, story line easy to follow. I was so glad to hear Katrin reading her own story made the book a lot more personal. Amazing she was so by vulnerable in her book reminding all athletes we all can and will hit a low it’s what you do after. As a person who suffers from a lot of anxiety and depression it’s great to hear stories of amazing people you can relate to. Great job Katrin ! My 12 year old boys also love the book they are wrestlers.
