I first read Bicycling Magazine editor Selene Yeager’s work in the 1990s. Having edited the work of health and fitness writers, I knew what good work looked like and hers was exemplary. She did a remarkable job of balancing the science side of things with the dimensions that are curious (and helpful) to cyclists.
What makes Yeager different is that she wasn’t a journalist first and a health and fitness writer second. She’s a science writer and gradually moved into writing for mainstream publications. Her training gives her a critical eye that has seen her steer clear of all the fad diets currently consuming Hollywood. Better yet, her approach and sensibility is down-to-earth, making talking with her a real pleasure.
Of course, her writing about diet and training is just one piece of who she is. She’s not called “the Fit Chick” for nothing. We also talk about her athletic life.
