About Leslie

My name is Leslie Sorenson and I am the founder of Vital Wellness. My passion for fitness began 7 years ago as I was searching for a way to establish more consistency with a healthy lifestyle. For me personally, it involved taking a step away from cardio and into the weight room. My love of strength training bled into other areas of my life and encouraged me to dive deeper into personal training, nutrition and behavior change. I have a few years of experience now as a personal trainer and specialize in strength training and health coaching. I take a holistic approach to nutrition, sleep, stress and behaviors to help you reveal your greatest potential. My approach has proved to be very successful with many of my personal training clients while working with LA Fitness in Minnesota and now Equinox here in New York and for a variety of goals: losing weight, building muscle, increasing strength, improving endurance, etc. I love connecting and building relationships with others! In addition, I'm a very curious person and when I'm not training I'm usually reading on a new topic or listening to a podcast. I just moved to New York in May from Minnesota and love the city thus far!

My favorite quote

You are entirely up to you.

My training philosophy

I take a holistic approach where we practice listening to our bodies. Health involves our sleep, stress, social, nutrition, & so much more.
Strength training is one of the healthiest things we can do to stay moving & feeling young. But if other aspects of your life are out of balance, the best program will show little (if any) benefit.
