Carl Daikeler, CEO, Beachbody Fitness: There’s a business philosophy that has served Carl Daikeler well throughout his 25-year career: If it generates reasonable profit at the same time that it helps the customer succeed, it’s a business worth pursuing.  Carl is the creator of Beachbody.com, which includes top brands like P90X®, Power 90®, Slim in 6®, INSANITY®, and Shakeology®. While there was no shortage of workout DVDs prior to Beachbody®, the combination of Carl’s personal pursuit to maintain his own health and fitness and his perception of the health care crisis due to obesity has redefined in-home fitness. What is now referred to as “The Beachbody Approach” to in-home fitness programs has gained the attention of millions of satisfied customers and generated over $1.3 billion in sales. And he’s just getting started.  As co-founder, Chairman, and CEO of Beachbody, Carl’s sole focus is to help people achieve their goals and lead healthy, fulfilling lives. Through the Team Beachbody Coach Network, Carl’s goal is to create the largest community of health and fitness-related peer support in the world, devoted to a three-pronged approach: (1) Stay active, (2) Improve your nutrition, and (3) Share the experience with people around you.  Having worked for every major infomercial marketer, including beauty juggernaut Guthy-Renker, Carl has more than 23 years of extensive product marketing experience. He has learned that the most successful companies aren’t those who just sell products, but those who sell products that truly deliver on their promises.  Carl has worked in every aspect of the direct response business, from creating products to advertising, media buying, operations, international distribution, and general management.

Lisa Jey Davis is a former freelance talent manager for one­hour televised specials with MTV, CBS and other networks and production companies. She is the founder of Jey Associates Marketing & PR, in Los Angeles, California, an award­winning writer, blogger, vlogger H uffington Post and L ivestrong.com contributor, fitness & women’s health professional and the author of “A hhhhhh ... Haaaaaa Moments with Ms. Cheevious” (a yoga routine in an eBook). Her memoir ““M s. Cheevious in Hollywood – My Zany Years Spent Working in Tinsel Town” released in February, 2015, details her post divorce years in Los Angeles navigating a career in television production as well as her new life as a single mom. A n o t h e r u p c o m i n g b o o k , c u r r e n t l y t i t l e d “ G e t t i n g O v e r Y o u r O v a r i e s : H o w t o M a k e ‘ T h e Change of Life’ Your BITCH” due later in 2015, is a witty survival guide for women dealing with hormonal issues and their own life change, or for those on the sidelines witnessing it firsthand (and suffering as a result). As professional, writing has taken first chair in Lisa Jey’s life, she’s been able to pursue her love for fitness and health, and is a n experienced, certified Lagree Method fitness trainer, and a classically trained pilates and yoga instructor. HereBook, “ A hhhhhh...Haaaaaa Moments with Ms. Cheevious” o ffers one of the yoga routines she taught at the renowned Aspen Club & Day Spa in Aspen, CO. H er goal was to make Yoga easy and accessible to all, and this book does just that. In 2011, Lisa Jey was diagnosed with the BRCA2 Genetic Mutation for Breast and Ovarian Cancer (similar to Angelina Jolie’s genetic mutation). Her sister’s seven­year battle with Ovarian Cancer (which took her life) was all the reason she needed to take the most drastic approach to medical wellness: that of a prophylactic double mastectomy and breast reconstruction, as well as an oophorectomy – removal of her ovaries and Fallopian tubes. She has since worked to raise awareness about genetic screenings and breast and ovarian cancer and encouraged others to live a healthy life to the fullest. Her dynamic presence and internet/media footprint have made her an in­demand guest speaker and commentator on the subject of women’s health (BRCA and women’s cancer topics included) and fitness as well as dating and relationships (among other topics). A gifted speaker and communicator, Lisa fills her message with humorous, real­life anecdotes that relate to both men and women. Her ‘Sex in the City’ meets ‘Lucille­Ball­style’ antics are entertaining and often hilarious, yet filled with intelligent thought and gravity. As a result of her genetic disposition for breast and ovarian cancer, Lisa Jey is one of the “go­to” authorities on BRCA/ Breast and Ovarian Cancer. Frequently invited to provide her opinions and commentary on related stories (i.e. Angelina Jolie’s choice), she has appeared in the Emmy Award­winning, nationally syndicated television show “The Doctors,” the CW (KTLA), and a variety of news programs and radio shows; she has also been quoted in major newspapers, magazines and online publications. She currently resides in Santa Monica, California.
