Ready to Run by Kelly Starrett
Ready to Run by Kelly Starrett is a health and fitness book written by a running coach. This book is not very easy to read in Kindle format. The pictures are tiny, and the language relies on CrossFit jargon and PT lingo that a lay reader will have a hard time deciphering. For this reason, I would recommend a physical copy of the book.
As a health and fitness book, Ready to Run by Kelly Starrett offers valuable information for runners of all levels. The book includes advice on how to improve posture, increase range of motion, and prevent injuries. It also discusses proper running shoes, which are vital to a strong and healthy running form.
Starrett is an internationally known fitness trainer and is one of the stars of the popular CrossFit gyms. She has trained Olympic athletes and English Premier League soccer players. She also has helped classical ballerinas, breakdancers, and endurance athletes. She believes that everyone can succeed in any endeavor if they know the fundamentals.
While attending the University of Colorado, Starrett became passionate about extreme sports and became obsessed with whitewater kayaking and rafting. She competed in more than a hundred class-V rapids, earning two national championships. She also learned the sport of CrossFit, which required her to learn about different disciplines and exercise methods.
