Facility of the Month: Lean Her Way

Lean Her Way (LHW) Studios located in southern Illinois is owned and operated by former college athlete, Molly Parrish. Molly left the world of corporate sales and the big paycheck that accompanied it to answer the call of the health conscious in Southern Illinois (and surrounding regions).

Parrish purchased more than two dozen Spinner® bikes and recruited seven new certified Spinning® instructors to work alongside her when she opened the official Spinning® facility. As a result, LHW Studios is the only one of its kind in this area of the country.

Recognizing there are needs beyond weight loss, Parrish voluntarily donates a portion of the proceeds she receives through her Spinning® classes to a women’s shelter, and recently she’s agreed to ride and raise money for Hands of Hope Family Medical Clinic.

Click to learn more about LHW Studios and get a free class pass under the "Special Offers" section.

Would you like the facility where you teach to be featured in an upcoming Spinning newsletter? Enter your facility into the Facility of the Month Contest for a chance to win $100 to spend at spinning.com for you and your facility!
