Born in San Francisco and raised primarily in Denver, Colorado, Norlisha has been physically active most of her life which began with her "heart and passion" for dance since her preteen years. In high school she performed in dance productions, joined dance and step teams and after moving back to California in her early twenties, went to school for dance and joined a few local Bay area dance companies which lead to performing all over the Bay Area including traveling to perform in New York, New Jersey and Philadelphia. In addition, Norlisha was an athlete and partook in track and field events as a sprint and long distance runner. She also loved playing basketball.
Since then, her passion to keep "healthy and fit" continued to grow and after almost a 2 year strong "calling" to (initially) teach dance in 1999, she decided fulfill her burning desire to help others become healthier and stronger by entering into the fitness industry in 2000 as a certified Group Fitness Instructor and later as a certified Personal Trainer. Norlisha's humble beginnings as a fitness professional began through the YMCA of the East Bay in Oakland, California where she instructed dance and fitness classes in addition to coaching and providing personal training services to gym members and personal clientele.
Norlisha has a combined 20+ years of actively instructing fitness classes and has instructed at several gym locations and corporate settings throughout the greater San Francisco and East Bay areas. During her 13 years with the Oakland YMCA, Norlisha also instructed simultaneously at the Richmond, West & East Oakland and Berkeley YMCA locations where she taught a myriad of fitness classes, such as Aqua Aerobics, Hi-Low Aerobics, Cardio Kickboxing, Body Sculpt, Spinning (indoor cycling), Pilates, Yoga, Chair Aerobics, HIIT, Circuit, Hip Hop, Salsa, Pan-African dance and Arthritis Foundation classes.
As of May 2020, Norlisha currently instructs a variety of livestream/virtual group fitness classes weekly via Zoom video conferencing.
