and Female Empowerment Expert


Welcome to my world!

After nearly a decade changing the lives of women for the better as the founder of Uplift, NYC's women-only fitness studio and female society, it's safe to say that I’m an expert in female empowerment.


However, that doesn’t mean I’ve always been perfect or even close to it: I’ve made my share of mistakes, misconnections, and a myriad of other failures, even in that realm about which I am so passionate.

But, I can say with certainty 

that female empowerment has been a calling for me from a young age, even when I fumbled through it.

And along the way, I've learned enough to share my hard-earned wisdom and empower women in all stages and stations in life through my proprietary 9 Pillars of Female Empowerment, which are clustered into three main areas: Clarity, Connection, and Consciousness-Raising.


Female Empowerment? What do you mean, Leanne? 


It's a concept that's been both overused and misunderstood. 

But for me, it's pretty simple. Women hold significantly less power than men in every single realm. And we're not gonna take it anymore


So, my thesis on female empowerment is also pretty simple: it's only when we women as individuals get empowered do we attain a critical mass and strength in numbers. And only then do we begin to gain the societal power we need, want, and demand.

In other words:

                            Personal strength→ 

Empowerment → 

Strength in numbers →


My solution? I created 9 Pillars of Female Empowerment, anchored in three main areas: Clarity, Connection, and Consciousness-Raising. I give women the tools they need to change their life on a micro scale, and when that happens with more and more women, we form powerful communities...and change society.

In fact, the name of my company-Leanne Shear WILL-indicates the power and potency I am tapping into on behalf of women everywhere. By helping all of us discover our inner strength, and band together, I WILL create the path for us to obtain societal power.

As we make progress in each field, we'll dismantle 

the patriarchy one connection and one community at a time, all starting with one woman: you, and me.
