Name: Leo Wright
Location: New York, NY
Brand: Fitness the WRIGHT Way
I was born in Brooklyn, NY and raised in Brooklyn and the Bronx. At a young age I got involved in youth centers and learned amateur boxing, mixed martial arts and dance. When I was a teenager I knew I was put on this earth to motivate people in the form of fitness. I have a tremendous amount of experience developing diverse, compelling workouts at several elite gyms in the NYC area, including New York Health & Racquet Club, Crunch and Manhattan Plaza Gyms. I am passionate about fitness and have always motivated people with my energy and enthusiasm since I was a kid. I have experience with celebrity training, as I trained an upcoming band founded by Randy Jackson called "Paper Tongues" and I have also made two workout DVDs (Leo Wright's Five Borough Workout DVD - Volumes 1 & 2). I have also been involved in an on line office workout on Uba TV which provided quick ten minute office workouts and several articles have been published about my Boot Camp classes at NYHRC in the NY Times. Most recently I was involved in JetBlue's Going Green Campaign in which I warmed up approximately 2,000 people in a local park in Queens which was also covered in the newspapers. Presently you can catch my Weekend Warrior Class in Battery City Park on Saturdays at noon.
Motivation gets you started, Habits keep you going!
You can work your core in bed, sit up and get out of bed, don't roll out of bed in the morning. Core strength is super important!
Fitness the WRIGHT Way
Fitness the Wright way seeks to do three things: motivate, educate, and inspire. It's time to shape up our communities and make our health a priority. Fitness the Wright Way is addictive because it's fun, easy and effective. I incorporate kick boxing, dance and intense cardio boot camp style moves to hip-hop music, creating a new cutting edge form of fitness called "Kick Hopping." Fitness the Wright Way's workouts are effective because they work the entire body in a short period of time by going from one exercise to another with short recovery periods. Our mantra is, "If you want something you never had, you gotta do something you've never done!" Fitness the Wright Way is the only way of working out because it's a no-excuses, no-nonsense, intense, but fun workout!
