Simone Biles is the most decorated American gymnast in history. Few were surprised when she won a record four gold medals at the 2016 Olympic Games. She swings faster, twists cleaner, and soars higher than everyone else. How does she do it? With a demanding fitness routine and keen awareness of the mental component of the sport, Biles produces almost superhuman results. Many consider her the greatest gymnast ever. Learn more about Simone’s superior fitness and nutrition programs.

“From the Fitness Routines of Superstar Athletes series (8 titles), this volume offers a short, concise biography of gymnastics phenomenon Simone Biles. Expected to retire after the 2016 Olympics, she took time off, then resumed working out more than 30 hours a week in 2018. Rather than dwelling on her achievements, the discussion offers information on Biles’ diet, sleep, and rigorous physical training routine, mentioning specific exercises she uses to increase upper body, lower body, and core strength as well as cross-training in swimming, biking, and running. With colorful design elements, wide-spaced lines of text, and at least one color photo of Biles on each double-page spread, the book has a lively look. Readers intent on excelling in their own sports will enjoy learning how Simone Biles reached the heights in hers.”--Booklist, October 1, 2019, Carolyn Phelan

“Gr 3-6–Though these books may look little, they’re packed with plenty of information. A short biography of each athlete is followed by their body statistics, as well as a description of their typical training routine and diet. Readers who know how hard professional athletes have to train to be the best won’t be surprised to see that Drew Brees never takes days off from his workouts. Tom Brady is so fanatical about his nutrition that he has a personal chef and has specific foods he never eats. Michael Phelps has a famously robust diet to be able to fuel his high-powered workouts. Female athletes like Lindsey Vonn, Serena Williams, and Simone Biles not only work hard but put up with harsh criticism of their bodies. Readers will be inspired to work as hard on their goals as their favorite athletes do on theirs. VERDICT: A unique spin on the athlete biography. Worth the purchase."--School Library Journal, November 1, 2019
