Elise Manolakos is a fitness coach and lifestyle entrepreneur who has an extensive background in fitness training, running, endurance athletics and much more. She is also a world traveler and retreat host who is now offering monthly Self-Renewal retreats close to the city of Toronto. I actually met Elise through a group in Toronto called Toronto Entrepreneurs of Passion and Purpose or TEPP for short.

In this episode, we chat exercise, recovery tips, traveling the world,  building and connecting to a community, and much more. If you’re a woman and in the Toronto area please do check out her Retreats and enjoy an intimate time of self-care, sharing, and connection to nature.
