"Mind over matter is simply the use of willpower to overcome obstacles. Our mind can be our best friend or our worst enemy. When we truly put our mind to something it can be amazing what we can achieve."

Leeah has always been a runner but chose sprints and hurdles over long distance. After an an ankle injury at Gustavus Adolphus College she decided to turn in her shoes for fashion, finishing her degree in Fashion at the Art Institute of Chicago. Persistent injuries through high school and college helped Leeah know the humbleness and vulnerability it takes to get started again on your fitness journey and finds great pride in helping others build a sustainable program to get started again.

When she's not working out or meal planning, Leeah loves trying to new foods and beers as well as traveling this big beautiful world.
