How To Optimize Long-Term Health and Performance With Debbie Potts [Podcast Ep. #11]

April 30, 2018

by Ravi Raman

Debbie Potts joins me to discuss how to optimize health and improve performance for life, work and sports. Most importantly, we dive deep into the crucial role of rest and recovery in achieving peak wellness. After all, according to Debbie, “life is not a race, it’s a journey!” What good are we if we sleepwalk and struggle our way through life, overtrained and exhausted?

 

Debbie is speaking from experience, as a 15-time Ironman triathlete, ultra-marathoner and business owner, operating a boutique fitness training facility in Bellevue, WA. After hitting the proverbial “wall,” and experiencing chronic fatigue and exhaustion, Debbie has discovered a multidimensional approach to supporting the body’s capacity to heal and recover. It’s called, The Wholestic Method. This method works not only for her, but for her clients, including elite-level athletes and corporate executives. If you are looking to unlock your best and most energetic self at work and in life, this episode is not to be missed.

 

Listen to the podcast as we discuss:
Why peak wellness is about WAY more than nutrition and fitness
How to overcome breakdown and burnout
The magic of doing less, the risks of doing too much
The role of sleep, gut health and mindset on wellness
…and much more!
