Meet Lee Powell, the passionate owner and coach at EarthFit Habersham. Hailing from Wales, UK, Lee's journey in fitness started with a full soccer scholarship in Georgia, where he captained the team in his first season. His dedication to helping individuals achieve their health and fitness goals led him to pursue a career in personal training and coaching soccer in Augusta, GA. As his expertise grew, he continued to expand his knowledge at Shaping Concepts in Charleston, SC, and later pursued a Master's degree in Sport & Exercise Science in the UK while working with professional soccer clubs' Sports Science departments.

Lee's drive for excellence is further showcased by his creation of HITCAMP, a thriving group fitness business offering indoor and outdoor classes.
