In this episode, we talk to Darla Andrews, a veteran fitness professional, successful entrepreneur and mother of five daughters. By the time her youngest daughter was 3 years old, she found herself out of shape, and struggling with self-esteem and low energy. In her early 40’s, she made her health and fitness a priority again, and Since then Darla has completed several marathons, mud runs, and triathlons. At the age of 49, Darla completed and won her first Figure Competition and two years later she earned her Pro Card! Darla recently released her first book, Build Your Best Body, Build Your Best Life, where she shares her story and gives tips, tools and solutions on how to transform both body and mind regardless of age or circumstances.
