Charlesha "Charli" Harris,
Founder of Chasing Transformation™
B.S. Exercise Science | M.S. Healthcare Administration
NASM Certified Personal Trainer & Fitness Nutrition Expert
My affinity for health and wellness began at an early age as I watched my father build his fitness brand from the ground up. As a highly respected personal trainer, class instructor, fitness expert, author, WJZTV of Baltimore’s Fitness Expert, etc., it was only natural that a lifestyle centered around health and wellness became my norm as I transitioned into young adulthood. My mommy; the charismatic educator, motivational coach, business woman and creative mastermind instilled in me the wealth of knowledge and faith. She also taught me that my individuality is what makes me who I am and that I am handcrafted for a special purpose. All of these ingredients along with life's experiences lead me to be the passionate leader & influencer I am today.
Once upon a time, I struggled with insecurities that stemmed from poor health and lifestyle choices. Rejuvenating my life and health through the power of patience, resilience, consistency, accountability, and grace...I turned that potential poison into my passion to educate, lead, & motivate others to be the best versions of themselves...transforming people’s minds, bodies, and lifestyles through the dynamic art of exercise, nutrition, and developing self love.
I am also petrified of birds.

About Chasing Transformation™
“ In May 2016, I wasn’t in a healthy place physically, socially, emotionally and needed a change. I didn’t realize this at the time, but the journey I was about to begin would change my life. After a night out with friends (accompanied with an over indulgence in T.G.I Friday’s ½ prices apps & “strong” island’s), I went home & and was winding down for bed. Somewhere in the midst of scrolling and posting on social media, I had recruited 3 of my followers to join me in a “55 Day Challenge” (today’s #55FLAT Abs Program) to get a flat stomach the right way. I made it up as we went along; with various exercise routines, nutritional guidelines, and lifestyle changes, I guided what I now realize was my study group through the entire program. By the end, I lost 8lbs and completely altered my body composition and fitness level. The others also noticed significant changes, one participant had lost 14lb of fat and transformed her lifestyle. It was then I knew I had something…”
All inspired by #55FLAT, various other programs and services were born and in 2018 I decided to officiate my business, Chasing Transformation. On Cinco de Mayo (one of my favorite holidays) I celebrated my success with my supporters, friends, family, and loved one’s from all over with a private party on a rooftop in DC. Since then, my baby, Chasing Transformation, and I have presented at various conferences, hosted various health and wellness events, served as a panelist and guest speaker at networking events, featured as a guest on WBAL Baltimore, collaborated with a clothing line to a create a high quality line of fitness apparel, transformed hundreds of women into their best selves and continues to inspired thousand everyday.
