Sheraleigh Sapphire (yup that’s her real name- check her birth certificate ha ha) lives in a pretty little village in Surrey, England. If you’ve ever seen the Cameron Diaz & Kate Winslet movie ‘The Holiday’, she lives a few villages on from there and absolutely loves it. She finds country life to bee amazing and after living in the buzz of London for almost 20 years she can honestly say life in the country is just as spectacular and equally exciting on the health & fitness front as it is in the city.
She shops at a local farm shop where they sell fresh organic produce and hikes her way through the hills into town for less organic supplies like workout gear.
Sheraleigh has a background in fitness as a fitness instructor before becoming an international flight attendant. She now combines her love of fitness with globe trotting and can be found anywhere from a barre class in London to a hike in the Hollywood Hills to yoga in India!
She’s a mummy to a darling and hilariously funny and freakishly clever little girl, 2 year old Betsie~Bea, who is the added driving force behind the love of all things fit and healthy.
Keeping fit and healthy shouldn’t be about looks or attracting a partner (of course these are welcome perks) but it’s about feeling ballsy and confident enough to face any challenges you may come up against with an unshakable confidence and determination.

Tizzy has always been an athlete. Growing up she played soccer, field hockey, ice hockey, tennis and lacrosse, in a addition to snowboarding, swimming, doing gymnastics, and figure skating. Growing up in New Hampshire, winter sports were a very big deal. In high school her team won the New Hampshire state ice hockey championship all three years she was on the team. She also had great success in field hockey, making it to the state championship game three times. After a serious shoulder injury her freshman year of college, she had to stop playing field hockey and needed to reassess how she could continue to be an athlete without causing harm to her body. After a couple of years of shoulder surgery, physical therapy, and a lot of hours on the elliptical, she found her answer in spin, Body Pump, running, and barre.
After graduating from George Washington University with a degree in American studies, she doubled down her efforts to get into great shape. While working on her Master’s degree, she’s found time to go to spin and barre classes almost daily, and just ran her first half-marathon! Juggling school, internships, and jobs, it is often hard to find time to work out. She’s found that she has to make the conscious decision to wake up at dawn if she wants to fit all of her daily obligations in, but it is worth it to feel good about herself physically and intellectually! After finishing her degree she is hoping to find legislative work at an advocacy organization in DC, but until then she can be found daily running between the library and the barre.
