Whether you are going for the gold or have other ambitions, we are all up against highly trained and motivated athletes, including ourselves. To find that competitive edge, take the next step by adding the nutritional component to your daily training regime. A great place to start is by reading Monique's book." — Kristin Armstrong, 2006 World Time Trial Champion, Two-Time U.S. National Time Trial Champion, Former U.S. National Road Race Champion

"I have always believed that the top Ironman athletes train very similarly, and that winning or losing comes down to nutrition and mental toughness.

Sports Nutrition for Endurance Athletes sets the standard for getting you fueled to the finish line." — Tim DeBoom, Two-Time Ironman World Champion
