Leah Callovini

Leah recently relocated to Philadelphia from Washington, DC, where she began her fitness career five years ago. Leah participated in team sports in high school, but never really found her home in fitness until college. She fell in love with group fitness while studying at George Washington University. She began teaching Cycling classes in 2012 for the university's Campus Recreation program, which helped her realize her passion for helping others live their healthiest lives by developing healthy habits. After graduating from GWU with her BA in Psychology in 2014, Leah missed studying so much that she then self-studied and obtained both her ACE Group Fitness and ACE Personal Training Certifications within one month of each other. Her group fitness manager convinced her to sign up for the LesMills BODYPUMP Instructor Training program in 2015, which changed her life forever. Leah loves the energy and physical challenge that comes with BODYPUMP's continuous tension training and can't wait for her NGU participants to feel the burn!

Leah worked full-time as a corporate fitness professional for a large government agency in the DC-area before relocating to Philadelphia in January 2017 to pursue her Master's in Sport Business at Temple University. Leah can't wait to get to know her participants at NGU Training: She finds herself continually challenged by her participants and hopes to inspire them to do what they think they can't.

Sharon Anton

A lifelong fitness enthusiast, Sharon has always loved running, field hockey, and strength training. But it wasn’t until she was in Boston studying for her M.S. in Environmental Science that she started the part-time job that changed her life: working the front desk of a women’s health and fitness center. It was there that she took her first BodyPump class, and group fitness has been a defining part of her life ever since. Three and a half years, a move to Texas, and many classes later—between BodyPump, RPM, R.I.P.P.E.D. and others—the chance to change other lives through group fitness came along when BodyPump training came to town in El Paso. Now, Sharon is thrilled to be back home on the East Coast and to have a shot at helping more people find their passion for fitness the same way she found hers: growing stronger and having a blast doing it!
