The legendary six-time CrossFit Games champion and Olympic athlete shares lessons from her inspiring story of leveling up her performance, embracing failure, and fiercely taking on impossible goals.

Tia Toomey, the world’s fittest woman, has won the CrossFit Games an incredible six years in a row and is undeniably a true warrior. She has also trained for the Winter Olympics in bobsledding, competed in the Summer Olympics in weightlifting and was a Commonwealth Games gold medalist. She is, in short, one of the most accomplished and dominant athletes in human history. But for Tia physical fitness is only a small part of overall strength. More important is building mental toughness.

In THE HEART IS THE STRONGEST MUSCLE, Tia shows how she reached elite levels by focusing on her “why.” By always having a clear picture of her purpose – what drives her heart – she can push through the toughest challenges. From the early days of her fitness journey to the peak performance that has put her atop the podium in the CrossFit Games, Tia reveals the secrets, struggles, and successes that have made her a killer competitor.

Nothing comes easy, but in THE HEART IS THE STRONGEST MUSCLE, Tia will show you how to build your own unstoppable mindset. Whether you are already a serious athlete or someone looking to conquer a new challenge, you’ll be able to use her methods to keep winning.


Tia Toomey knows that being a fierce competitor is about more than just the body. Her wisdom in this book will help keep your mind sharp and heart full

Tia Toomey is one of the greatest athletes in the history of sports. You don't become that without a bulletproof mindset. Champions are built in the mind first, and Tia understands exactly how to do that

I have been honored to closely follow the journey and success of Tia Toomey as a high-level CrossFit athlete. But more impressive has been following her development and journey as a person. This book gives a wonderful glimpse into all aspects of her amazing journey
Dave Castro, director and programmer of the CrossFit Games
Learning to have grit and mental toughness is something all of us need to constantly be working on. Having the opportunity to train with Tia showed me her persistence and resilience to keep fighting and pushing back, even when she was being challenged mentally and physically. The fire she has to never quit is extremely rare. This is a must-read for every person who wants to learn from one of the best at being mentally prepared!
Josh Bridges, US Navy Seal, multiple CrossFit Games athlete
Through nothing but hard work Tia has shown what the human body is capable of time and time again. Inspiring millions to pick themselves up and keep moving forward is what this book is all about. It puts fire in my belly reading what I already knew ... Tia is the definition of hard work pays off
