Who we are

Lose the diet, gain a life.

When was the last time you asked yourself what you wanted to eat instead of what you “should” or “can” eat?

If you spend the majority of your day obsessively thinking about:

  • What you’ll eat next
  • What you wish you could eat
  • What you wish you hadn’t eaten

You’re no longer controlling your diet; your diet is controlling you.

It’s time to take your life back.

Whether you have a goal to bounce a quarter off your ass or to stop eating like an asshole, we have helped over 2000 clients transform their lives from the inside-out without crazy food rules, obsessive calorie counting, and endless hours of cardio.

Now, it’s your turn.

Steph Miramontes

Since 2012, Steph Miramontes has taken fitness and nutrition coaching from a mundane task to inspired action, so you can get your life back. After witnessing Steph’s commitment to not only helping her clients untangle their emotional ties to food, but also help them heal a lifelong battle with poor body image, she was the obvious choice for the Hooper Team.

When most diets end, do you still end up picking your body apart and wishing it was better? When you see a photo of yourself 20 pounds lighter, do you remember still being unhappy in your body and wishing it was different? Steph helps our clients rebuild the most important relationship you’ll ever have — the one with yourself.

The health and fitness industry focuses on surface solutions, while failing to acknowledge the key to a lifelong, permanent transformation is through mind, body, and soul.

Steph manages the perfect blend of no-bullshit coaching with grace and compassion.

Coach

Laura Kalirai

Laura Kalirai was such a standout participant in the Unstuffed group coaching program, I asked her to join my team as the “Team Leader” now turned coach.

After investing 100% of herself into the program, it was obvious her internal transformation outshined her physical transformation. In addition to managing the Facebook community and other behind the scene duties, Laura is also a talented makeup artist and can frequently be seen on Instagram sharing her client’s before and after photos. Her passion for helping others is evident in how special she makes everyone feel when they enter the room.

After publicly sharing her story, Laura has been embracing the power of vulnerability. What was once perceived as her greatest “weakness” has now become her greatest “strength.” After years of extreme dieting, she has been able to transform her life from the inside-out and eagerly wants to help you, too.

Team Leader

Miriam Blyth

Miriam runs our thriving Facebook community.
As a client, she shined as a leader among her fellow group members.
 
After 20 years of dieting, Miriam was finally able to break the mold and is eager to show you how, too.
Her passion for this work is contagious so it’s no surprise that clients always feel at home in her presence.
 
Miriam is based in the UK and lives there with her husband and two young sons. When she’s not busy being a Mom or juggling her professional duties, she can be found lifting weights, listening to podcasts, or pursuing fitness certifications.
 
Miriam has been a huge asset to the team and our client’s continued success in the program.

The weight loss I always said I 'could' have done on my own, but only because I believe you can do anything you put your mind to. The truth is, I 'could' have done it on my own, but it would have taken a HELL of a lot longer, and it would have 100% been a more painful experience. I'm still progressing physically, but the mental work was done a few months back at the end of the program, and now I'm feeling and seeing the physical changes more consistently. I have an overwhelming gratitude for Leslie Hooper for the encouragement, support, and direction. The physical changes are great, but if you could see how I feel on the inside -- that would be far more transformative than how I look. The lessons I'm continuing to learn about myself; the acceptance I feel in myself; how I actually feel about myself; how I actually like myself; it's everything. Yeah, I 'could' have lost weight on my own, but not this. Not the self-acceptance part. Not without the level of support and encouragement I've been given in the Friends With Benefits program. I feel like a brand new person. I can't believe how different I am in six short months. This program has literally been the best thing I have ever signed up for in my whole entire life, because it showed me how to change from the inside out. I no longer feel desperate to lose weight, because fat loss is inevitable with the life I'm living now...all without dieting.

Fat Murder Podcast Co-Host

Rog Law

Rog Law is one of Leslie’s oldest friends in the fitness industry. Like many modern day love stories, they met in the comments section of Facebook and eventually in-person at a fitness conference in Kansas City, Missouri. When Leslie moved to NYC a few years later to begin building her online business, she and Rog were roommates while he worked at Mark Fisher Fitness. It was during this time that Rog met his wife, Shirin. The two newlyweds now live in Brooklyn, New York, where he continues to work at MFF.

Rog being the lovable and hilarious guy that he is, made him a no-brainer co-host choice when Leslie decided to start a podcast. Not only does he have extensive experience working in the fitness industry, but he also has a gift for finding the humor in heavy topics that most people shy away from. Rog is incredibly knowledgeable on all-things growth mindset and never misses an opportunity to find the positive in every situation.

Emotional Support

Dexter

Leslie’s energetic two year-old Dalmatian, Dexter, is always available to provide you with a daily dose of love. Like most dogs, Dexter has a special way of finding the people who need him and filling an emptiness they didn’t know they had. He loves to chase his favorite orange balls almost as much as he loves to cuddle. His primary love languages are physical touch and quality time.

We believe that everything you need to know about what’s important in life, can be taught to you by a dog (and pets in general).
