Dawn Franklin What is the biggest challenge of staying healthy at your age? "Just as you're getting older you have to always eat right and keep moving. You start to lose muscle... well, it's easier to lose it and, with me, I notice if I take too much time off I start to get out of shape quicker. Once you turn 30, a lot of things start to change." What is your biggest accomplishment? "With hard work and determination I went from a size 13/14, 170 pounds and feeling very unhealthy down to, over a span of time, 140 pounds, a size 6 and feeling good about myself, so good I wanted to help other women reach similar goals and became a trainer." What are your goals? "My next goal is to do a marathon." What is your motivation to stay healthy and active? "My father is my motivation. He's 71 and has always worked out. He taught me to treat your body like a temple. He say's he feels 20 or 30 years younger than he is." Do you have any heroes? "My father."
