#MeToo Workshop

An important #MeToo workshop

The #MeToo movement comes to the Fitness, Wellness and Health Communities


Have your trainers or instructors ever experienced sexual harassment (or otherwise detrimental behavior) from their clients? Have any members of your staff been uncomfortable in a given situation with a client and not known how to speak up? Have male instructors wanted (or needed) to be allies to their female counterparts--or vice versa--and not known how?

Leanne Shear, founder of Uplift, and Megan Eiss-Proctor, a New York attorney and founder of Heddy Consulting, are offering a workshop for businesses in the fitness/wellness sector to bring the empowering principles of #MeToo and #TimesUp home to our staffs and employees.

"Leanne and Megan surpassed my expectations each step of the way in the process of our workshop with them. From their thoughtful communication prior to ensure that they understood my team and our needs, to their energy and knowledge at the time of the workshop to their continued investment in my team after, it has been an incredible experience.
