Katie Leiher is known by many titles here at Heroes Journey, including Owner, Officer of Delight and All Things Magical, Trainer, Yoga Instructor, Meditation Teacher, Reiki Practitioner and Positive Psychology Practitioner. She has been CrossFitting for six years and loves helping and empowering members through a holistic approach. "I specialize in helping people achieve balance and harmony in their physical, mental and emotional lives," she says. "I encourage people to discover the tools that suit them the best to create a flourishing, thriving life."
Katie truly enjoys empowering members to embrace their unique journey by getting creative and exploring different paths to health and fitness with a playful, open heart. She believes that the studied and proven tools of positive psychology help people bridge the gap between their physical selves and their limiting beliefs and mental barriers. "I am obsessed with the healing power of deep human connection, the force behind our tribe at Heroes." She feels most alive when engulfed in mountains, rivers, sunshine and fresh air—and enjoys daily cuddles with her rescued pups, Sweet Pea and Ninja.
Active in track, cross country, tennis and swimming, Katie knew that as soon as she found CrossFit, she was totally in love with the workouts, the community and the philosophy. "It was the feeling of coming home, like I had finally found my people, my tribe. And I knew I wanted to spread this feeling and phenomenon to others."
