First, we talk all about our walking challenge! To combat the sitting is the new smoking research evidence, we are walking an extra 30 minutes every day. Join us!!

UPLIFT Studios in NYC is THE place to go for female empowerment, both physical and mental empowerment.
UPLIFT was founded by Leanne Shear, when she started training women to run marathons as a side gig, while she was a full-time writer.
A story was then written about Leanne, and the rest is history!
In our conversation we talk about all aspects of a fitness business, plus their female society, and some of the struggles along the way.
Leanne did a friends and family round of funding, invested in a property, had partners and a few hiccups, but is super-successful, looking for new locations and expansion possibilities.
