Coach With Me
Hi there.
I'm Leslie, Head Coach and Creator of Gym Leadership. This is my life's dream work; investing in others who want to make a difference in the world of health, fitness and leadership.

​With over 20 years in the industry, I know what it means to work in the trenches and why leadership development is the only way to make a difference, move away from mediocrity, and stand out in a crowded industry.

Whether you work in a big box gym, manage other coaches, or own your own facility, I'm ready to share my experience and help you grow and increase your professional and personal leadership.

Learning & Leading

A little over 23 years ago I taught my first group exercise class in a small, private gym in Chesterfield, Indiana. As a former high school athlete, dancer and gym rat, I was hooked when the gym owners offered me a free membership if I taught a few classes a week. Twenty-plus years and quite a few certifications later, I'm still here, doing what I love; teaching, training, coaching and changing people's lives. 

As a lifelong fitness professional and leader, I've been able to merge my passions into a vocation. And I'm ready to share what I've learned with you.

From group exercise to training, coaching and leading staff, I have the opportunity to share my knowledge, missteps, and LOVE of all things health and fitness with you. You can rest assured that you are in good hands when you work with me. Individuals, small gym owners, organizations and teams will be stronger leaders after our time together. 

I'm Ready! Are You?

"I have had the pleasure of working with Leslie Snyder both as my coach and as a colleague. It is rare to find a coach as passionate about what she does as Leslie." --Graycen D.
