World Cup and Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn's book, Strong Is the New Beautiful , isn't your average health-nut title. Instead, Vonn has written a fitness motivation guide, which not only "chronicles [her] life story," but also "empower[s] ... anyone hoping to gain strength, lose some excess weight, maintain a higher level of health, and learn Lindsey's secrets to success." Strong Is the New Beautiful is Vonn's first book.
Vonn debuted at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. She broke records in 2010, when she became the first American woman to take home the gold medal for the downhill Alpine skiing event at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. At the time of this writing, Vonn has won four World Cup championships and is one of only six women to win World Cup races in every Alpine skiing discipline.
According to the author, " Strong Is the New Beautiful is filled with all of the expert information and guidance you need to make the right choices for your life whether you are an athlete, a fitness buff or someone who is hoping to get on the right track." Vonn says her book "is the perfect companion for living life to the fullest."
