Book Review "ROAR, Revised Edition: Match Your Food and Fitness to Your Unique Female Physiology for Optimum Performance" Stacy Sims PhD with Selene Yaeger

Updated: Apr 16

book review Roar Stacy Sims Singapore

What? For the female recreational or serious athlete, Roar not only covers exercise and meal plans but importantly specific issues that affect women. From training around one's menses or pregnancy to peri-menopausal and post-menopausal health.

Who? Stacy Sims PhD is a peer reviewed physiologist and nutrition scientist, specialising in exercise health and performance for women.

Why? There are very few female focused resources for women engaged in recreational or competitive sports. This book bridges that gap.

Women are not small men.

So… Now that you can focus on matching your training with your body, what are the key differences to your training that will improve your health, performance and long-term success?


See Dr. Sims at TEDx...


Look out for ROAR on Amazon, paperback only. (at time of writing)
