Who is Debbie Potts?

With the passion and mission to ‘Train WHOLE Athlete” from the Inside Out, Debbie Potts has been helping many people achieve optimal health for over 25 years through her unique “The WHOLESTIC Method” Coaching program. She has been a fitness studio owner, top personal trainer, group exercise instructor, triathlon coach, run coach, podcaster, speaker and book author.

Debbie started racing Ironman triathlons on and off until Ironman Hawaii 2012 then in March 2013, her racing career quickly came to a halt as she experienced severe “adrenal exhaustion” or HPA-Axis Dysfunction … really chronic fatigue that lead to “METABOLIC CHAOS”. After participating in 15 Ironman triathlons and qualifying for five Ironman Hawaii World Championships, she had to cancel her racing schedule in 2013 – and hasn’t been able to get her body to race again. Debbie shared her personal journey in her book “LIFE IS NOT A RACE”- as she was a low-carb fat adapted athlete who did fasted workouts, trained by MAF heart rates and metabolically efficient but she lived with chronic stress that broke her from the inside out. Now Debbie is on a mission to coach athletes how to become fat adapted with “The WHOLESTIC Method” elements and program.

As a coach, Debbie has been educated and trained over the years as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP), Kion Coach (Ben Greenfield program), CHEK Holistic Lifestyle Coach, USA Triathlon Coach, NASM Certified Personal Trainer (CPT), Metabolic Efficiency coach, Natural Running coach, Yoga, STOTT Pilates Mat, DNAFit Coach and soon a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN). She is a host of “The WHOLE Athlete” podcast (orginally FIT FAT FAST Podcast) as well as the author of the bestseller ‘LIFE IS NOT A RACE’ and ‘The WHOLESTIC Method Manual & Workbook’.
