Meet Charis

I have always had a passion for Health and Fitness. In 2010 I studied and qualified as an international Personal trainer in Hong-Kong and spent a year working as an out door fitness instructor. Thereafter I came back to South Africa and started working at Virgin Active in La Lucia.

I continued with my studies and further qualified as a yoga, pilates, spinning, functional movement and TRX Instructor. I studied an advanced diploma in sports and exercise nutrition and did a course in common disease and illness in the body and metabolic malfunction.

In 2013, I worked on an international cruise ship line as a Fitness Instructor. I decided to study further into the mental side of health, I certified in NLP - neuro linguistic programming - (reprogramming your own thought patterns) Originally as a method to try and help my own clients overcome limiting patterns and thoughts behaviors with regards to eating and exercise.

After studying and understanding NLP I became very passionate about the concept and decided to do a further life coaching course and finally went into business and executive coaching. I strongly believe that to change your body and live a healthy life, you have to have the right mindset and a healthy, happy mind.

In 2016 I started hosting personal development / motivational retreats and started my own company Ignite Co. Our puepose is to inspire a better and more positive environment and motivate people to want to become the best versions of themselves, mentally and physically.

I love helping people change their lives, achieve their dreams and live a positive and fulfilling life.
