Hi, I'm Charlene

Let’s talk about how to boost your performance and well-being.

It’s common for high-achievers to struggle to find time for physical activity and movement in their busy work schedules. So often, we feel chained to our desks, and battle the adverse effects of a sedentary lifestyle. In this episode, award-winning author, speaker, and running enthusiast Dr Juliet McGrattan offers practical solutions to embed movement seamlessly into your day-to-day life. She also shares tips and tricks on reclaiming your health and vitality amidst a demanding professional life, with a particular focus on helping women through motherhood, midlife and beyond.

Renowned for her expertise in women’s health and running advocacy, Dr Juliet McGrattan is the author of the empowering book “Run Well,” which serves as a guiding light for women seeking physical and mental well-being through running. Transitioning from a successful career as a GP, McGrattan’s work focuses on championing the importance of movement in everyday life, particularly for women in various life stages. Her influence extends to women seeking to enhance their health by taking up running, with a dedicated following that includes mothers, professionals, and midlife individuals looking to embrace the transformative power of running for health and happiness.
