It’s Here! The Great Cardio Myth Hits Bookshelves in 2017

Walking into Barnes & Noble and seeing our book displayed on the shelf was perhaps one of the coolest moments of my life.

In 2015, Craig Ballantyne, the creator of Turbulence Training, asked me to join him in writing The Great Cardio Myth, a book that examines what the exercise research of the past 60 years has really been telling us, and how it’s been misinterpreted and distorted.

I didn’t think twice about getting on board.

Our publisher loved the idea, we got the contract, and within one year, we were handing in a complete manuscript. We packed it with research that shows cardio isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and strength training and short-burst workouts are in many ways far superior. Our editor joked that that this book could have been my master’s thesis (I cite 300 studies, and yes, I read them all!).

I’ll be posting some teasers from the book soon (once I finish my “other” master’s thesis), but for now, here’s a link to the book on Amazon.



I’m a health writer and graduate student. I'm interested in the wily side of health – self sabotage, persuasion, and why health campaigns so often manage to inadvertently piss people off.
