Now let’s introduce you to ….

Featured Resilience Panel Speaker – Lisa Charles

Brain-Body Balance

Small steps can lead to big changes in your life. As little as ten minutes a day of back-to-basics fitness can ignite a new health routine that increases wellbeing.

Two of the five top fitness trends for 2021, according to the American College of Sports Medicine, include low-cost, low equipment weight-training and outdoor activities. Research shows that people who exercise regularly have better mental health and emotional wellbeing, and lower rates of mental illness—which enhances workplace wellness.

That’s the message of fitness coach, Lisa Charles. “Start where you are and move your body.

Lisa teaches people about brain-body-belief alignment. Researchers at Johns Hopkins are studying the second brain located in the lining of the gut called the enteric nervous system (ENS). The ENS is two thin layers of more than 100 million nerve cells lining your gastrointestinal tract from the esophagus to the rectum, which control nutrients’ assimilation and elimination. Gut-brain researchers are finding evidence that digestion affects mental and emotional health by sending signals of gut irritation to the central nervous system and triggering mood changes.

Lisa shares “When employees feel physically in sync with their brain-body balance, they can more readily tap into their inner resilience and become more productive, healthier, and happier humans—in the workplace and at home.” 

To that end, the Resilience series, live panel events will be a quarterly series on resilience for the workplace and for life. Mark your calendars!

We are thrilled to have Fitness Coach, Lisa Charles as a guest speaker for our first event Resilience for Everyday: Tools, Tips & Exercises for Well-being.

Lisa educates clients about The 4 Pillars of Transformational Health. Where burnout poses a national crisis, Lisa’s 4 Pillars of True Health helps women release crazy stress levels; bring restorative sleep; conquer aging phobias; and ignite internal energy sources—while harmonizing the brain, body, and belief balance and connection. 

Lisa Charles is a federal prosecutor turned singer/actress, wellness expert, certified health coach/consultant, and speaker. She served as the Fitness/Wellness Research Coordinator for the Rutgers University Aging & Brain Health Alliance, is the CEO of Embrace Your Fitness, LLC, and is the author of Yes! Commit. Do. Live. She successfully directed her struggle with temporary vocal loss into personal growth by shedding 77 pounds without dieting. This ignited her zeal for fitness, cemented her understanding of the brain-body connection, and prompted her to delve into the process of creating a life based on passion.

Today, as a Brain, Body, and Belief Alignment Specialist, Lisa empowers individuals to let go of their limiting beliefs, embrace who they truly are, and breakthrough any age-limiting barriers, by allowing them to experience wellness from her top/down, inside/out approach. Her strategies center on transformational techniques within and outside the Fitness industry that produces tangible, lasting results. You can connect with Coach Lisa through her Wellness Universe profile.
