Recently, while reading Greatist’s list of the 100 most influential people in health and fitness, I realized that I recognized next to none of the men and women who were known primarily for their social media presence. As much as people look to social media for fitspo photos, my ignorance

I got a fun package in the mail this week: new exercise tights. Colorful, stretchy, sweat-wicking workout gear. Me, being who I am, I immediately shared it to Instagram. A photo posted by Leisa (@leisawithane) on Jul 23, 2015 at 10:28am PDT Several friends wanted to know about how
