Nutritional Counseling

with Shannon Elkins, CPT, CNC

Your road to wellness is not paved with fitness alone. You literally are what you eat. And if you are eating junk….well, you can only guess why your body is not cooperating. If you are not exerting portion control…well, you can again guess why you are struggling with your weight.

pricing and class offering

Boot Camp

A full body workout that will “blast” calories and challenge your muscles with a mix of calisthenics and strength training. Great class for all fitness levels.


Beam is a safe, sensible exercise system using a floor mat and a Beam that will work your core in a standing, kneeling, sitting or lying down position, improve overall core strength and stability, firm and tone most muscle groups and improve balance.

Cycle Zen (75 minutes)

The dynamic duo: Cycle and Yoga. You start with 45 minutes of intense cycling to boost cardio endurance then transition to 30 minutes of Yoga poses to balance upper and lower body and soothe those cycling muscles. Please bring a water bottle, towel and yoga mat.

FitZone Express

A 30 minute time based workout that will get your heart pumping, muscles burning and sweat dripping all by lifting weights faster. No choreography involved.

Flow Yoga

Linking movements with breath to increase balance, flexibility and strength for an energizing workout. Modifications made for beginners and options given for more advanced students.

High Intensity Body Blast

Experience a total body workout utilizing resistance & cardio intervals designed to burn fat and sculpt your body into a lean mean machine! Build your endurance and have fun all at the same time.

Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga is the yoga of deep, aware relaxation. This yoga class allows your muscles to utterly relax and melt into place instead of stretching and straining into position. As your body finds the shape of the posture and melts into place, your nervous system switches to calmness and a deep inner relaxation mode. For stressed out modern day living, this is a beautiful way to round out the work week.

Tabata Row

High‐intensity circuit training class that produces remarkable results in both aerobic and anaerobic capacity using the Water Rower, weights, bands and body bars. You will perform intervals of 20 seconds of intense work followed by 10 seconds of rest. You will feel the burn! Class will end with a cool down and stretch.

The Skinny Jean Workout

Feel great and rock your favorite pair of jeans. Mold your body into a healthy and aligned physique, with elongated, well‐toned muscles. Attain core strength and the calm and grace of a ballerina!

Yoga Fusion

A great combination of Flow movement, core strengthening and stretching. All levels welcome

Zen Fusion

Flow in and out of postures with intention and grace. A true mind/body treat.


recipes from Leah

This is a favorite with my clients. I know deep down they would sometimes prefer a pop-tart, but most times, they humor me by starting their day with this tasty source of complex carbohydrates, protein and good-for-you fats!
Preheat Oven to 400.
In skillet on Med-high heat, toast the walnuts for about 4 minutes.
In large bowl, combine all ingredients except for the dried fruit. Mix well. Layer granola on cookie sheet. (It is important to keep granola in single layer.)
Bake for about 10 minutes.
Gently stir granola on pan.
Bake for another 10-12 until golden.
Fold chopped fruit into granola. Cool completely. Store in airtight container.

Hanover County, Virginia is famous for its gorgeous summer tomato! I make this dish (one of my mother’s favorites) all summer long. If you can’t use a fresh, local tomato, try Campari Tomatoes or boxed Pomi Tomatoes.

Peel tomatoes and place in food processor.
Add remaining ingredients except for Pine nuts and capers.
Blend on low, gently chopping the tomatoes and mixing with Olive Oil mixture.

LHF has been a part of my life since it opened in 2010. As a result of consistently working with the trainers at LHF I have been able to combine diet and exercise resulting in weight loss of over 40 pounds, a 5 inch reduction in the waist and significant reduction in cholesterol and blood pressure.  All the fitness professionals there are inspiring, creative and fun and working with Leah and her staff gave me the confidence to try new things, push though the tough exercises, and celebrate success all without judging my weak moments.

Thank You Leah!

I met Leah 3 years ago when we selected her to manage our corporate fitness program where I work.  She not only has the knowledge and experience but the people skills as well.  It was obvious from the start that she is passionate, knowledgeable, dedicated and cared to provide the very best.

Karen T.

I love working out with Leah.  She understands my individual needs and goals while making it fun and never boring.  She is also very patient when I whine!

Collen H.

Leah and her staff’s enthusiasm for fitness is contagious. Their knowledge and ability to bring variety and fun to working out is awesome. Leah’s training style pushes you to exceed what you think is not possible. I’m hooked.
