Family Affair

Leslie Bonner told personal trainer Evan McDaniel, “This is not who I am, anymore,” and she meant it. Her mother had passed away, and Bonner was overweight and battling depression.

This wasn’t the only declaration that led McDaniel to say that Bonner challenged him to be a better trainer — and to train her better. There was the time when Bonner, “the lady who doesn’t run,” announced she was going to follow McDaniel’s training program to run a half-marathon. And she did it.

Watch to see how she’s inspired her younger brother, Frank, on his own fitness journey, infused with her determined spirit.
