Today's a big day for The Lysst. Today we're introducing our resident health and fitness expert, Sara Eichinger. Sara trains me (Alyssa) a few days a week, making sure I don't blow up like a balloon with all my indulgences I somehow justify. She's a #girlboss too, which makes her even cooler. You can check out her website here: Natural Fitness 704. She's local to Charlotte like me, but she will be soon offering remote training services, so be sure to keep tabs on her! I've loved welcoming her into the world of entrepreneurship and helping her build her business (*inconspicuous cough* that website is my handiwork... #humblebrag).
Did you know that The National Sexual Violence Resource Center estimates nearly 1 in 5 women in the United States have experienced an attempted rape or assault? That statistic is so not O.K. Oh, and approximately 7 out of 10 victims actually know their assailants, which means it's never a bad time to learn self-defense moves to practice at home, in case you're ever in one of these situations.
