Leah Bates

    Leah is a Milwaukee native who grew up playing soccer, roller skating and living an overall active lifestyle.

    Her passion for fitness developed even more when she moved to Chicago. In 2013, she started running with local organizations and attending a variety of group fitness classes in and around the city. From these experiences, Leah gained confidence in the strength she possessed and soon realized the sweaty parts of her day were the most life-giving. She realized she wanted to share her passion with others because everyone deserves to discover their true strength through fitness.

    Leah became a certified group fitness instructor after completing the 2016 Chicago Marathon at 12 weeks pregnant. Leah’s goal is to empower clients to believe in a “Yes, you can!” attitude through total body workouts that are fun and challenging for all fitness levels.
