In our society there is this pervasive notion that as you get older you have to slow down, and that it is “just natural” that you will gain weight and lose muscle. It is almost expected that you’ll pick up high blood pressure, diabetes, or some other ailment. It is often said that diseases run in families –but do they have to? And, when you think of a grandmother, do you picture a woman squatting 200lbs? Today we are talking to Donna Nealy, a woman who is turning the tables on all of those notions.
