FFF 013: Medal Winning Mindset, An Olympians Perspective – with Eve Muirhead


Eve Muirhead is a Team GB curler who has won multiple world titles and has represented Great Britain at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

Pretty impressive right! She’s also a single-figure golf handicapper and she loves smashing the weights in the gym.

In this episode of the Food For Fitness podcast, Eve talks about her journey into the sport, her current training routine, the importance of diet for fuelling and recovery and her medal-winning mindset.

She explains some of biggest challenges that she has had to overcome, the focus required to compete on the Olympic stage, the importance of goal-setting and how people can remain on-track even if they’re becoming disheartened and feeling unmotivated.

This episode will give you an amazing insight into the training, nutrition and mindset required to compete at the truly elite level of international sport.
