She always wanted to offer programs and services to help transform the WHOLE individual from the inside out with the eight elements of ‘The WHOLESTIC Method’.  Clients will get results in less time with our total body workouts, nutritional and life coaching to reduce chronic stressors.  Debbie created ‘The WHOESLTIC Method Transformational program’ after years of working with clients reaching a dead-end with only personal training sessions.  She wanted to offer programs, services, and coaching programs to help transform the WHOLE individual from the inside out with the eight elements of The WHOLESTIC Method.  Clients will get results in less time with our total body workouts, nutritional and life coaching as exercise alone will not always help an individual optimize their health and reach their goals. 


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 shared her personal story called in a book called “LIFE IS NOT A RACE” to help others avoid going through what she has from “living life as a daily race”.  In the past, I have been on the Mark Allen Elite Triathlon team 2004-2013 and placed top  ten overall in numerous Ironman triathlons.  Debbie’s passion and purpose now is to help transform the WHOLE Athlete, of all levels, to learn how to become fat burner, get off the blood sugar roller coaster – and of course reduce stressors from the inside and out!   She offers ‘The WHOLESTIC Method’ 5-day and 30-day total transformation detox, repair and rebuild programs to help clients improve their health at a cellular level.  Debbie Potts is the host of ‘The WHOLE Athlete’ weekly podcast to help athletes of all levels perform their best in sports and life with elements of ‘The WHOLESTIC Method’.
