Founder, CEO & Empowered Recovery Coach
My name is Leah Hantman. I am the Founder and Owner of Empowered RX. I'm also a a certified Exercise Physiologist, Nutritionist, USA Weightlifting Coach, CrossFit Coach, Personal Trainer, Athlete AND trauma/ED survivor!
I know first hand what it feels like to have your whole world turned upside down. The stress and trauma leads to a total loss of self, health and happiness. At times it can feel daunting.
It doesn't have to be that way! While I was working through healing, I realized that my health was suffering. I was sleeping 3 - 5 hours a night, chronically in pain and always felt anxious which lead to muscle tightness and a general lack of motivation. In addition, my body image and appetite declined. I lost 20 lbs. due to over-exercising and restriction. I had an AMAZING Therapist, a wonderful Doctor but...there was nobody to help me navigate rebuilding my strength and health. Luckily, my profession gave me the tools to find my way.
As a life-long athlete, fitness was part of my identity. It was SO important for me to maintain daily habits that promoted resiliency and healthy living. I used my knowledge of Exercise Physiology, Nutrition, Fitness & Psychology to create systems that would allow me to embrace the idea that healing is not always linear, but always possible.
I've helped hundreds of women form better relationships with their body and their health practices.
Empowered RX is the result of integrating my passions in fitness and health to serve a HIGHLY UNDERSERVED population. Our goal is to change the status quo with how eating disorders are treated to be a more holistic, empowering and sustainable treatment model.
I can't wait to meet you and to hear your story!
