When we know precisely what our body “wants” from one moment to the next, our fitness steadily improves and our enjoyment is unbroken. The Joyful Athlete reveals how anyone can learn to “listen to the body” and reap the rewards of exercising in harmony with its ever-changing needs.With scientific research, practical methods, and the experiences of elite athletes, The Joyful Athlete takes a fresh look at the “inside story” of sports and exercise.“Beyond being a wonderful book, this is a doorway to new ways of training that can help us find joy. It’s entertaining and readable, and the author writes beautifully. There are lots of people who could benefit from this information, but they won’t find it anywhere else. I really, really enjoyed The Joyful Athlete.” – John Smallen, runner (marathon PR 2:37, 50-mile PR sub-7 hours)“Based on scientific research, the experiences of elite runners, traditional training methods, and stories of athletes’ experiences, this book clearly establishes the precedence of an expansive heart in harvesting power and joy from exercise and from all that we do.” – Michael Holland, former Stanford University specialty coach for flexibility, strength, speed, power, and nutrition
