Adrenal fatigue could knock you on your you-know-what for five years. Learning to listen to your body’s signals could avoid adrenal fatigue.
Debbie Potts has been in the fitness industry for over twenty-five years and a competitive endurance athlete for twenty years. Along her journey, she has accomplished many goals including being nominated as one of the top one hundred best trainers in the U.S. by Men’s Journal in 2004 and 2005 as well as participating in fifteen Ironman Triathlons – five of them were the World Championship Ironman in Kona, Hawaii.
Debbie is a speaker, podcast host, and author. She coaches clients how to become fat burners, optimize health and improve their performance in life and sports with The WHOLESTIC Method.
Debbie does her best to walk the talk as she was a competitive top age group triathlete, marathoner, and cyclist but since 2013, she has been recovering and rebuilding from Adrenal Exhaustion and burnout. In November 2016, she published “LIFE IS NOT A RACE” in which she shares her personal story to help others avoid living life as a daily race and ultimately avoid adrenal fatigue.
Questions we cover in this episode:
- What was your experience as a competitive Ironman triathlete to that of a woman in adrenal fatigue and exhaustion that you share in LIFE is NOT a RACE?
- What were the biggest lessons you learned?
- What do you wish you knew then that you know now, that might have helped you avoid adrenal fatigue?
- How do you advise training for a triathlon (or any endurance event) to stay healthy?
- What’s your WHOLESTIC Method approach consist of?
If an elite athlete can acquire adrenal fatigue, so too can you. Your perception of your busy life and the stress is enough. You don’t have to be running marathons.
