Revue de presse

"McCormack recaps important races throughout his career with candor...He shares training expertise while offering readers advice to develop their own routines, exercise programs and race strategies... not for the faint of heart."―Forbes.com

"If you're a competitive athlete and want to focus on your mental game, read I'm Here to Win. "Macca" is straight up and honest, putting forth embarrassing moments, times of doubt, and how he made it to the top of the podium so many times."―Stack.com

Présentation de l'éditeur

In I'M HERE TO WIN, Chris "Macca" McCormack opens his playbook and reveals everything it takes-mind, body, and spirit-to become a champion. Now he shares the story of his triumphs and the never-say-die dedication that has made him the world's most successful triathlete.

In 2010, at the age of 37, Macca beat the odds and won the Ford Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii for a second time in what many called the most dramatic finish in the race's history. Macca's journey to athletic greatness is more than just one of physical perseverance. After coming in fourth in Hawaii in 2009, Macca returned to the island on a mission: He was there to win. A game plan containing a new strategic approach to winning brought him first across the finish line.

Chris McCormack has dedicated his life to training for-and winning-the Ironman Hawaii, one of the most grueling tests of mental and physical endurance in the world. The race challenges athletes to swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles, and run a full marathon, 26.2 miles, using all their strength and willpower to overcome the incredibly harsh conditions.

In I'M HERE TO WIN Macca provides concrete training advice for everyone-from weekend warriors who casually compete to seasoned veterans who race every week to armchair athletes looking for an extra push-and provides insight into the mind of a great champion with excitement and inspiration on every page.

I'M HERE TO WIN is also available as an enhanced e-book with embedded video and audio.

J'avais des à priori sur Macca et sa suffisance. Ce livre m'a montré qu'il est simplement super compétitif et que c'est une stratégie objective pour déstabiliser ses adversaires. Quelques pépites sur l'entrainement, comme par exemple sur l'hydratation empruntée des bodybuilders.

Haven't finished the book yet, and struggling to do so. I am sure Chris is a nice guy, when taken out from the sport environment. But I definitely hate the sports man character. An ego bigger than himself, a tendency to deny everyone who thinks differently from him, an approach often indicating that he is more clever than the rest of the crowd. I know you have often to have a very strong personality to succeed in sport, but to me having a strong mental doesn't have to mean that you have to be an arse.
There are still one 2 two advices to take away from this book, but the guy writes like he's full of anger, he's the super genius of sport. I thought triathlon was sort of preserved from this mentality, Chris is the guy who shows that it is not. Once finished, I'll sell this book immediately, as I will never read it again.

HASH(0x8da038d0) étoiles sur 5 Great detail and and honest portrait 24 mai 2011
Par AustinVince - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I'm not an Ironman; my triathlons are strictly sprint distance. But as a cyclist and swimmer, I've followed the career of Chris McCormack for years, and I both anticipated and dreaded this book. Anticipated because who wouldn't want insight into the mind of the greatest athlete in the history of triathlon? Dreaded because I was afraid it would be some publicist-softened puff piece that glossed over Macca's trademark cockiness, mental game and trash talking.

Well, I worried needlessly. "I'm Here to Win" is brilliant and exhaustive. Chris bares his soul to talk about everything from his mother's death from breast cancer to the death of his best friend on the very day that he qualified for Ironman Hawaii. You get a lengthy look inside the mind of this great athlete and realize that as incredible as his talent and training regimen are, his mind is truly what gives him the edge over younger, faster triathletes. There is gold in here, and the blow-by-blow account of the incredible 2010 Kona finish with Andreas Raelert is worth the price of the book all by itself!

Then there's the "Macca is cocky" stuff. This book pulls no punches there, either. Macca comes across as totally real and authentic, which means that sometimes, he does come across as a cocky SOB. The section that relates his "war" with Normann Stadler and Faris al-Sultan after the 2006 Ironman World Championships is absolutely priceless. I found myself alternating between thinking the guy was an obsessive egomaniac and rooting for him to take down the people who disrespected him. Of course, all that ego is balanced out by accounts like his honest, agonizing story of dropping out of the 2004 Kona race because of heat cramps only to watch a bloodied age group racer carry his bike after a terrifying crash...and finish the race.

"I'm Here to Win" is a triathlon in itself: part memoir, part training guide, and part expose of the inner workings of a sport that fascinates and punishes so many of us. Whether you love Chris McCormack or can't stand him, you've GOT to read this book.

HASH(0x8da03924) étoiles sur 5 Didn't quite hit the heights 26 mai 2013
Par P. Dixon - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'm a triathlete (Olympic, not Ironman) and have read quite a few other books on the subject (Chrissie Wellington's, Rich Roll, Iron War) so feel I have a good idea of the genre. Although I'm not the biggest fan of Macca, I thought I'd give it a shot.

For me the book tried to do 3 things: 1. The background story of Macca, what makes him tick; 2. The story of his races; 3. Tips for other athletes out there. I'll judge each accordingly:

I think it did a good job of explaining Macca's life. What drove him to the sport, how he approaches races. Although, as I mentioned before, I'm not a huge fan of Macca's smack talk, you do get an appreciation of WHY he does it. I can understand him a bit more now.

Getting behind the story of his races was a bit mixed. We did continually come back to the Kona triumphs and they were dealt with in some depth (especially the wins!). A lot of the other races were skipped over, but of course he can't cover all his races. What I didn't like was the chronology. I wanted to start at the beginning and progress. Instead, we'd start talking about 1997 then jump to a 2002 race or 2006. Very confusing. As an example, the last season Macca rounds up (there's a summary of each season) is....1997!?!

The "tips" section is also a bit poor. It seems like a bit of an afterthought. Don't get me wrong - I believe that if you want tips then you go to something like Joe Friel's Triathlete's Bible and none of the 'story' books give decent advice. However don't advertise your book as "Champion's Advice for Peak Performance" on the basis of the handful of common-sense 'tips' included in this book.

If you're interested in Macca's story - buy it. If you want triathlon tips - look elsewhere.

I loved this book. It's more than just a book on training, it's about balance in life, finding what you love, and being successful at it. I found Macca to be a true inspiration.

HASH(0x8da03d44) étoiles sur 5 Must read ^^ 26 mai 2011
Par A. J. - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'm a marathoner that decided to pick up triathlon a few months ago and been reading a lot about the sport, following races and the athletes and since 2010 I got interested in cocky fellah.

Let me tell you first what I was expecting from this book:

1. Insight to Macca's approach to racing,
2. Insight on his career,
3. Some toughs on training and nutrition.

Well when you read this book you will get that and more. Macca talks about from the beginning of his running career and his early passion for triathlon to his amazing approach for Kona 2010. You can read very explicitly what he did to improve his game since his Euro season to the transition to the Ironman scene.

You also get a look at how he prepares for 16 weeks with a complete workout plan and the best of all he talks about how he address his nutrition issues("big guys") for hot races...like Kona, how he powers up from recovery. Great insight on his mental game and how he use it not only to take the confidence of his contenders but how he pumped his.

A good book and reference for amateurs to pro's, if you can't take something from this book. YOU ARE A FOOL!

HASH(0x8da0712c) étoiles sur 5 A Great Read for The Triathlon Enthusiast 18 octobre 2011

I have been eyeing this book for a while and have been hearing some good reviews on it. Being in the triathlon community and having people ask if you have read it and you say no, they want to tell you about the whole book .I am a little more than halfway through the book and it is very interesting in the way he interprets his mental game in triathlon which has always been called the 4th discipline. Anyone who is really interested in the Pro triathlete world and likes Macca, will definately find this amusing and informative at the same time
