About our speaker: Les is the founder of Balanced Black Girl, an online community dedicated to helping women of color live their healthiest lives. Upon graduating college in 2011 and diving head first into “the real world” Les soon found that the happiest part of her day was during her gym sessions every morning before work. Each day she felt herself becoming stronger and more confident in a way she had never felt before. So in 2012, she became a personal trainer and nutrition coach to help others feel the same. She started her first blog, The Balanced Berry, in 2014 to share what wellness looks like in real life. After four years of sharing recipes and workouts on The Balanced Berry, Les is excited to focus more on amplifying women of color in the online wellness space through the Balanced Black Girl podcast. Les is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, TRX Certified Instructor, and Level 1 Precision Nutrition Coach. Check out her website at and podcast Tickets are free to members of The Riveter.
