Memorable Quotes:

"There is not enough research out there to help us perform optimally, avoid injuries, to avoid fatigue and exhaustion from our exercise. In fact, just to feel better. There's not enough. We're being asked to follow programs that were made based on science on men. So how well is that going to work for us?" [00:07:36] – Debra Atkinson

"Realize that even the people who are experts in mindset and mindfulness can sometimes fall into that trap themselves. We can't see it when we're in the frame, but there's also a way out of that and you'll learn, huh, that's the value of community, but it's probably not because you're going to focus on the fat loss and the burning of calories. You're going to focus on stabilizing your hormones." [00:29:10] – Debra Atkinson
