Are you weary of cookie-cutter fitness plans devoid of anything you can actually use? Or programs promising great abs by Monday?

Eric Heiden, M.D., and Massimo Testa, M.D., are renowned physicians who've spent their lives facing every conceivable exercise problem, helping both elite athletes and people who want to finish a 5K or achieve lower blood pressure.

Part I of this book is a treasure trove filled with everything everyone should know about fitness but that even the best athletes do not, including how to start (or restart) an exercise regimen; eat before, during, and after a workout; lose weight while getting fit; treat aches and pains; diagnose fatigue; harness your thoughts; and select the activities best suited to you. Part II unveils a twelve-week fitness program, tailored to your needs, which will optimize your time, efforts, and results.

Faster, Better, Stronger, named one of the top ten books of the year by Disaboom.com, is highly inspiring and fun to read, with stories from Dr. Heiden at the Olympics and from Dr. Testa about helping the world's top cyclists as well as elderly and obese patients.

Doctors rarely make guarantees, but Dr. Heiden and Dr. Testa are willing to guarantee this: Everyone can get better. Including you.

Bike racers were America's media darlings less than a century ago-dashing, eccentric, and very rich daredevils. Until the 1920s bike races drew larger crowds than all other American sports events, including Major League Baseball games. Prize-winning racer and journalist Peter Joffre Nye vividly re-creates this period of sports history, forgotten until now, in Hearts of Lions, a true story of courage, daring, and occasional lunacy. Revised, updated, and expanded, this second edition of Hearts of Lions is based on interviews with more than one thousand cyclists whose racing careers span from 1908 through the 2016 Rio Olympics, along with interviews with trainers and family members. Included are stories about Joseph Magnani, the lone American from southern Illinois who rode on the dusty roads of Europe in road racing's golden era of the 1930s and 1940s; Lance Armstrong, whose rise in the mid-1990s was eclipsed in the doping era that still casts a long shadow over the sport; Kristin Armstrong, a three-time Olympic gold medalist who set new standards for women in cycling; and Evelyn "Evie" Stevens, who chucked a Wall Street career in her mid-twenties to compete in two Olympics and win several world championship gold medals. Hearts of Lions is a colorful, exciting, classic work on the art of bicycle racing over 140 years against a backdrop of social, political, and technical changes.
