The Importance of Variability with Debbie Potts (Life is Not a Race)

Debbie Potts, is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP), DNAFit coach, Metabolic Efficiency Specialist, CHEK HLC Coach, KION and Superhuman Coach, USAT Coach and NASM CPT. Whoa!

Debbie is a leading fitness professional for over twenty-five years who owned Fitness Forward Studio in Bellevue, WA for over ten years. She used to train and race (a lot) for long-distance events as an endurance runner, cyclist, and triathlete (just like me but even more).

These days, through her WHOLESTIC Method, she focuses on the WHOLE you from the inside out. In this episode of Second Wind FItness, we get into her story of burnout and injury and how her training has evolved.

I was recently on her podcast as well!
