The Champion Mindset
The Champion Mindset with Joanna Zeiger, MS, Ph.D. Joanna is a world-champion former professional triathlete who competed for more than a decade. She’s an Olympian. She runs marathons. She’s a multidisciplinary coach. But her fitness wisdom has been hard-won. “My athletic life is littered with setbacks, chronic conditions, injuries and disappointment,” she writes in her book The Champion Mindset: An Athlete’s Guide to Mental Toughness.
Dr. Zeiger, who qualified for the U.S. Olympic Trials six times overall—in swimming, triathlon and marathon—excelled on the professional triathlon circuit from 1998-2010 and was 2008 Ironman 70.3 World Champion before she had to go on hiatus due to injury. She then became a dominant force in marathons in her 40s. The Champion Mindset is a much-needed and long-overdue look into how to program a competitor’s mind to achieve optimal success. Changing behaviors and ways of thinking are never easy, but the chapters in this book aim to simplify this process to make it manageable and achievable. This book is for every athlete―from the weekend warrior, who wants to complete in his or her first 5k running race, to those who have aspirations of one day becoming Olympians and world champions.
