More about Lesley McShane

I loved interviewing Lesley! To me, there is nothing more encouraging than a midlife woman who is living life full out! I enjoyed following the breadcrumbs of Leslie’s life that have led her to where she is today: a first class fitness coach, a global podcaster, and a winner in cyclocross cycle racing.


It’s always fun to see what makes people who they are (and so good at what they do)!


In Leslie’s words…


When I Was Little

  • I ran around screaming “I Have The Power!” like a superhero
  • I loved riding my bike and pretending to be in the Tour de France


Today she is one the the most powerful fitness podcasters online, and she wins bike races!

Every week I get questions from listeners and readers of my new book; FIT: Active & Ageless for Life! Questions about how to stay on top of your fitness mindset and what to do when negative thoughts pop up.

I’ve spent the last two decades helping women with their fitness consistency, and thus their fitness mindset, because I know how crucial these are to our long term health and wellness.


Fitness Starts in Our Heads!

When I talk about a fitness mindset, I mean believing in yourself, challenging yourself, always having something to look forward to, and most importantly making sure that negative thoughts don’t derail you and your dreams!  Here are a few things to keep in mind:

What I Love

  • Getting up before the sun
  • Being anywhere with my best friend, my husband, Mike

Obviously what she loves is foundational to her being such a great coach and mentor.
