What People are Saying

I read your book from start to finish, and I think you did an amazing job with it. I made a few line edits throughout and commented where you could re-word some phrases and add scientific references for statements (see attached).

As a gerontologist, I really appreciate your section on Age-Defying Living. It’s important to stress – especially as humans are are living longer – that there are a number of aging stereotypes that limit us (self-fulfilling prophecy!). We must unapologetically, without shame, embrace our true age, and not let any preconceived notions of that number limit how we live, love, move, breathe etc.

Finally, I truly enjoyed your vulnerability and encouragement throughout the book! I think your story, complete with setbacks, successes and everything in between, will encourage others to bring their own stories to light.

Lisa is more than a fitness coach; her wisdom extends beyond nutrition and physical wellness. Change of any kind begins with a paradigm shift. Lisa guides your journey with information which, if you absorb and act on it will lead to positive revelation and achievement of your goals. I look forward to working with Lisa and I am excited about my future health.
Brenda Gibson

I just wanted to thank you for making exercise so much fun. Your enthusiasm and love of dance is evident with each class as you transport us around the world dancing with the people of the country you bring us to. You are a gem!

I participated in the Saturday Zumba class, Destination Walk and Inch Off programs. The fitness tips and coaching provided by our instructor, Lisa Charles are priceless and keep me focused on my overall health goals.

The program has taught me how to eat the meals I enjoy in moderation, love my body size and most importantly understand how vital daily exercise is to my life.

I now focus on walking, stretching, breathing and drinking more water and I owe this to the wellness program.

Lisa Charles is phenomenal and is always available for support. She makes me feel like I have my very own personal trainer. I love the wellness program and have recommended it to friends and neighbors in the community. I hope state or government resources continue to be available for invaluable initiatives like this community base fitness program. Lisa Charles is awesome and you can tell that she really cares about people and loves her work.

Thanks for your support Lisa!

I can’t say enough about Lisa’s extensive knowledge and passion for fitness, as well as her true caring nature for her clients. She is not just a trainer, but a motivator and an amazing supportive individual. Because of her, I have learned that I am truly a stronger and more capable woman, in every aspect of my life.

Lisa’s commitment to me and all her trainees goes beyond the training session. She makes herself available to answer questions and she provides the utmost motivation. Lisa has helped me to change my life for the better, physically, mentally and emotionally. I am so grateful.

Lisa was such a motivator and really got us excited about the journey. The program has been a blessing to our church family.

This is spiritual and life changing to me. I feel excited as I notice my body change it is being changed inch by inch and I feel better at 83 than I did at 63 doing sit-up, leg-lifts and jumping jacks while sitting down. More to come. Lisa is a gem!
