Kate Van Horn is a popular wellness blogger who is really making a splash with the GOOD Fest, a festival that brings together people in the wellness industry to talk about trends in healthy living. This festival brings together experts and influencers working in nutrition, exercise, mental health, and more for fascinating discussions and networking in the healthy living space.
Sarah Levey founded Y7 yoga studios, which takes traditional yoga practice and turns it on its head. Y7 yoga classes are candlelit and set to hip-hop and other popular music, making them fun and accessible for those who may not feel engaged in a more traditional yoga class. Since founding Y7 in New York in Williamsburg, the studio has since expanded to 13 locations in New York and Los Angeles, with more cities in the works soon.
Natalie Uhling is a digital fitness influencer who founded NUFit, a company that produces a line of workout weights that are stylish and accessible.

Uhling also has her own social media presence that empowers athletes to love themselves and develop their inner strength.
