‘Malta’s Fitness Sweetheart’ Leanne Bartolo is set to launch her next 6 Week Strong Challenge on 7 November, following the success of the first that recently guided men and women across Malta to feeling better in body and mind.

Continuing her fantastic work for the community earlier this year, when she hosted a series of free online workouts for those staying home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ms Bartolo launched the first 6 Week Strong Challenge alongside her new website at www.teamleanne.com.

Using her expertise both as a European Fitness Champion and personal trainer and as a Psychology graduate, Ms Bartolo designed the 6 Week Strong Challenge to help people to have a positive body image supported by a healthy mind.

“I speak to so many people who don’t like what they see in the mirror, which just isn’t right. Everyone deserves to be able to make a positive change and improve their lifestyle, to help them love themselves,” she shares. “I am so proud of all the participants of the first 6 Week Strong Challenge – they have embraced the lifestyle and discovered benefits beyond all expectations. I have been as inspired by them as I hope they have been by the Challenge!”

As part of their subscription to the Challenge, participants receive unlimited access to a full schedule of fitness classes– accessible both in-person at Warehouse Studio or via Zoom – as well as Ms Bartolo’s professional advice delivered daily via email, a detailed weekly meal plan including quick and easy recipes and a shopping list, and exclusive deals on her favourite gear, products and treatments. What’s more, subscribers also enjoy full access to the #TeamLeanne Facebook group, where the team can share their goals, overcome challenges and celebrate personal victories along the way.

“Taking part in Leanne’s 6 Week Strong Challenge has been truly life-changing,” shares Laura Bonnici, one of the members of #TeamLeanne who completed the challenge in October. “I was inspired to try the Challenge as my busy schedule as a working mum didn’t allow for much opportunity to shed those extra kilos and get fitter. Plus, I wasn’t sure how to start, in terms of eating healthier, finding the workouts and exercise that would work for me – and especially finding the motivation to see it through to getting results. Leanne’s Challenge came along at the perfect moment for me. It was wonderful to have the knowledge and support of an expert like Leanne to guide me through my journey, every day for 6 weeks. She made the lifestyle so easy to follow, and both she and the rest of the team – other participants like me on their own fitness journey, who I now call friends too – were there every step of the way, cheering me on. As a result of that 6 weeks with Leanne’s guidance, I’ve not only lost weight, but both me and my family are now eating healthier, getting more exercise, and feeling loads better both inside and out.”

Known throughout Malta and internationally for her positive outlook and determination to achieve her goals, Ms Bartolo has become one of the island’s favourite personal trainers, even being dubbed ‘Malta’s Fitness Sweetheart’. As well as owning Warehouse, her fitness studio in Gzira, Ms Bartolo is also two-time World Fitness Federation European Bikini Champion and has launched her own online brand to further her goal of making health and fitness accessible to everyone.
