Jenn Foster and Melanie Johnson speak with Debra Atkinson about the importance of knowing your body as you grow older. Debra Atkinson is a fitness professional, who spent years hearing client lament about getting older and their metabolism slowing. Not yet 50+ at the time, she encouraged them as best she could and stayed positive with them. As a fitness professional for many years, you could say she fit the stereotype of “exercising all day.” Then in her early 40s, Debra cut her physical activity teaching load by 6 hours a week! Talk about bad timing. Even though she wasn’t exercising nearly as much anymore, her job as a personal training director still had Debra actively moving around much of the day.
