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.

Okay at best

This entire book feels extremely fake and overproduced. It doesn’t sound the way that Katrin talks. It uses a ton of hyperbole and metaphors that it’s clear weren’t written by Katrin and poor editing makes parts fairly repetitive.
Dottir drinking game:
Every time she says “deep dive” finish your drink.
If she says “Ben”, “CFNE”, “mindset”, or mentions a grandparent you have to drink.

Inspiring and touching

This book is amazing, being read by the author makes it more enjoyable and you can really relate to what she's talking about, to the emotions of being a champion and the struggles of being in the spot.

This book is inspiring, letting you know that is okay to be vulnerable with your people, that doubt can come at any stage of your life but that you can also overcome the obstacles in the way. Learning from a true and transparent champion is a true honor and I would recommend this book to all my friends.

Still crying!

Kat,
Thank you. Thank for for pushing. Thank you for persevering. Thank you for inspiring. For motivating. For being you. You ARE changing lives! Your efforts inspire me daily and I’m incredibly grateful that I had the opportunity to listen to your book. Listening to you speak the words yourself made your struggles and triumphs feel so real and raw as a listener. It’s true. The journey has just begun. I can’t wait to continue watching you #CutTheBrakes <3
