About Leanne


I’m an expert in personalised health and the founder of Bodyshot Performance Limited. I’ve published two bestselling books (Remove the Guesswork and Rise and Shine); spoken on the TEDx stage about why I think fitness is more important than weight; am considered an expert on health, fitness and wellbeing, and I’m also the host of a popular podcast called Remove the Guesswork.

My life was quite different up until March 2012 however.  My career has always been in sales, beginning at a start-up (which was a lot of fun) and subsequently in large corporates. Initially I loved what I did but as the roles got more serious, and I got older, I began to realise that perhaps this type of environment wasn’t ideal for me. By the end of my City career, I was working in a job and a professional environment which I no longer enjoyed or identified with. I had no sense of authenticity about what I did for a living and I was bored and unfulfilled. I had been living very unhealthily for years, and found myself burned out and heading for a crash. It was reaching this low point in my life that I realised things had to change. I resigned and took some time off to reconsider what I really wanted to do with my time.

I started Bodyshot Personal Training in June 2012 operating as a sole trader, and we changed our name to Bodyshot Performance Limited in April 2014. My motives were threefold: I wanted to run my own business; I wanted to empower other people to take control of their health; and I wanted to do something that provided me with a structure for healthy living. Doing something at the intersection of what you love is deeply rewarding and very closely correlated with good health and wellbeing.

One of the five core values of Bodyshot is to help first, so please check out the resources section of the course for links to all the free content we provide, and if you have any questions, feel free to get in touch via the Contact page.

All the best for now!

Remove The Guesswork

Leanne’s latest book Remove the Guesswork: the highly personalised approach to health, fitness and nutrition is now available. This book is for busy, time-crunched people who have a keen interest in their health and fitness but very little time for trial and error. Leanne shares with you her tips and techniques for how to personalise every aspect of your health, fitness and nutrition so that you can stay fit and healthy for as long as possible. Read this book and you will be able to:

  • understand what your DNA can reveal about the best type of diet and exercise for you
  • pick up tips on lifestyle, sleep, mindset and setbacks from injury
  • learn how wearable tech can help you to track and self-monitor for better results
  • gain inspiration from other people like you, who’ve personalised their health, fitness and nutrition

Leanne’s first book, the bestselling Rise and Shine: Recover from burnout and get back to your best details her personal story and how she beat burnout to become a successful entrepreneur, coach, speaker and author.


This course was just what I needed to get my health and wellbeing back on track. I’ve suffered from very poor, broken sleep for years exacerbated by anxiety caused by stress and have been looking for a solution for months until I found this course. Leanne is clearly very knowledgeable and each solution seemed easy to understand and out into practice. I feel in much better control of my health now, I sleep better and my mental health is improved – and I feel I have strategies now to recognise warning signs and take pre-emptive action. This course has been a gamechanger for me.

I’m super-interested in my health and fitness but don’t have the time to read books or watch YouTube videos. Having access to this course provided me with bite-sized videos that relate specifically to the areas I need to focus on. I also love Leanne’s holistic approach – I know from experience that sleep really effects my mental health and that what I eat is profoundly important so this really resonated with me. The course is easy to follow and difficult concepts are explained clearly. This has been a big help for me and excellent value for money.

Best value for money I’ve spent on any online course. No gimmicks, no fads, no fast-solutions. I loved the Winning Philosophies at the end, because it made me feel as though improving my health is possible but that it takes time, which is what I’ve always found. There’s loads of information in this course, but you don’t feel overwhelmed or rushed. I can pause when I like and pick it up again and I find Leanne’s delivery easy to understand. I’ve made huge improvements to my body composition and my energy levels have gone up which has made my life so much easier and enjoyable. Thanks to Leanne and Bodyshot for putting this course out there. Highly recommend.
