Leanne Shear, Founder at Uplift Studios


"I saw fitness as a powerful way to empower women in all aspects of their lives."

I was a writer for most of my career.  Then I started doing some running coaching and training on the side, mostly with friends, and more for fun than money. An editor I was writing for caught wind of this and did a couple of workouts with me.  She decided to write about me for the Daily Candy newsletter. Overnight, I had thousands of new client inquiries. I found my Uplift co-founders that way, too! In no time, Uplift Studios—a women-only fitness studio—was born, and slowly but surely started thriving.

Uplift Studios is a women-only fitness studio with locations in New York City and Los Angeles.
