Did you ever meet someone at a meeting & immediately decide that you want to get to know this person better? That you want them to be on your team? That’s how I felt when I met Lisa Charles several years ago when we were both speakers at Olympian Joetta Clark Diggs’ annual women’s health conference. It’s no surprise that this inspirational speaker is known as “Coach Lisa”. She’s the CEO of Embrace Your Fitness, a health & wellness consultancy. She has walked the talk, having to overcome her own health & weight management challenges. She’s a life coach who has also had an incredible diversity of life experiences from being a state and federal prosecutor for more than a decade, becoming a jazz and opera singer and actor, and then changing lanes to focus on health & fitness. She is the Research Coordinator for the Rutgers University Aging and Brain Health Alliance & today adds 2 new accolades to her resume: she is a new author of the motivational book “Yes! Commit. Do. Live.” And she is my official new health & fitness trainer.
