Becoming A Consummate Athlete: Sneak Peek Inside!

by | Nov 14, 2020 | Mindset, Training

Our new guidebook to athletic habits + success is out tomorrow! At The Consummate Athlete, we’re advocates of bringing training, nutrition, recovery, gear and so much more together to create an optimal lifestyle for athletes. And in our new book, Becoming A Consummate Athlete, we’re looking at all the habits around your training and how you think about/approach your training in order to boost your overall health, performance and–we hope–happiness! Check back tomorrow morning to order the book, but for now, we wanted to share the table of contents to give you an idea of what to expect in each section.
