Are you struggling to muster the motivation to move your body?

Are you wishing for a stronger connection with your physical self and better overall well-being?

Ever wonder if individuals with chronic health conditions like diabetes, cancer, or asthma can become endurance athletes?

What if I told you that people facing these challenges, including diabetes and cancer survivors who’ve endured trauma, can embrace the endurance athlete lifestyle?

In Extreme Healing, Mari empathizes with your journey. Childhood trauma left her disconnected from her body for most of her life. However, Mari discovered that exercise could bring her back into her body, where she initially felt uncomfortable. It became clear that improving health required a confident approach to exercise.

Extreme Healing is Mari’s journey of finding salvation through cycling, running, and triathlon. These activities carried her through trauma, type 1 diabetes, and three rounds of cancer. In this book, Mari shares hard-won wisdom and personal experiences, aiming to inspire and motivate you to embrace the endurance athlete mindset and lifestyle for your health, joy, and well-being.

Discover the secrets and mindset that endurance athletes embody to heal and thrive. You have the potential to become an endurance athlete and experience the profound benefits of an active, empowered life.

If you’ve ever wondered if you can truly embrace and love your body with all its unique characteristics, the answer is a resounding YES.
