After running and owning several successful fitness businesses, researcher, writer, TV personality, entrepreneur, and author of How To Ditch the Bitch, Leanne Ellington transitioned to focus her career on the “Inner Game’ of transformation. Ditch the Bitch was created to help women all over the world feel more empowered, confident, and happy by taking back control of the driver’s seat of their own lives. Leanne’s first career endeavor was focused on the Outer Game of fitness and weight loss and helping women makeover their bodies and their lifestyle. It was completely fueled by her own personal desire to overcome the overweight and out of shape body that she had been carrying with her ever since childhood. But it quickly became very apparent to Leanne that the distinction between ‘losing weight” and “loving your body and your life” were two very different things. After her deep exploration of mindset, the brain, pain, and inner self-talk and how it controls perception and experiences, she fell in love with helping women work on the Inner Game of their transformations and Ditch the Bitch was born. http://howtoditchthebitch.com/

|Luka Hocevar is an entrepreneur, author, strength/fitness/business coach (yes, all that), world traveler, life enjoyer (is that even a word?) and former pro-basketball player who is working on hooping consistently again. There’s a lot more to him, but he’ll tell you those stories over a drink some time (or maybe you can read about them on his blog). Since he was wee little kid, Luka was entrepreneurial Unfortunately, many times it took him down the wrong path. Sports and fitness saved him. That is why these days he is all about running his businesses that are his purpose – his gym Vigor Ground Fitness and Performance which is located in Seattle, WA, and the gym he started in Slovenia, Vigor Move & Live. To serve his clients and change their lives is the internal alarm clock that gets him up in the morning.Luka also co-wrote the national best seller, The Fit Formula and self-published The Fitness Business Mixtape. He has also written for a number of top fitness and lifestyle blogs. More than anything, he loves writing to get all the things in his head out on paper and help people find solutions (or maybe help tip them out of ambivalence on a certain matter). Sport and fitness saved Luka’s life. He was a knucklehead when he was younger. His coaches, team, family and drive to be the best basketball player (and the most capable athlete) is what tipped the scales and made him turn down a different path. When he was done with playing professional basketball, he went into fitness (he was actually in it all that time, but that’s a story for another day) and for the last decade he has been purposeful about helping people change their life through the vehicle that changed his. Luka trains athletes, youth, and anyone that has a goal and desire to change for the better (those who don’t; he helps them find it!). http://www.vigorgroundfitness.com|
