And as more moms try to incorporate a workout into their hectic schedules, it’s crucial during the summer that they make the most out of their workout and post-workout routines so they can keep up with the additional challenges of having the kids at home. Medal-winning swimmer and mom Dara Torres has experience balancing it all – the kind of experience from which any mom could learn. Dara shares workout and recovery tips, including those from her new book Gold Medal Fitness. She also lets moms in on her secrets for fitting in a workout, even if they can’t make it to the gym. And she lets them in on her favorite nutrition and workout-recovery tricks. Experts agree: the two-hour post-workout recovery period is an important time for women of all fitness levels to rehydrate and replace nutrients lost in sweat. Dara will share her experience as a mom and an athlete, as well as the fitness and recovery routines that have helped her become an inspiration to women everywhere. A true inspiration to women/moms everywhere, Dara Torres got back in the pool after a post-maternity hiatus, and won three silver medals in Beijing, all at the age of 41. As a five-time Olympic champion, Dara has set three World records and won nine medals, including four gold medals. In the 2006 Masters Nationals, she broke a world record, just three weeks after her daughter’s birth. Most recently, at the 2008 Beijing Games, Dara won three silver medals. Her new book, Gold Medal Fitness (Broadway Books, 2010), is now available in bookstores.
