About Fit for the Stage

How it began

Many singers face the same struggles with nerves, body tension, and lack of focus. Unfortunately, they don’t often have the opportunity to collaborate and connect with other vocalists to fully explore and learn how to solve these issues.  

Leigh Graham decided that it didn’t have to be up to each singer out there to ‘reinvent the wheel.’ Fit for the Stage was born: a live workshop series (with an online program on its way) delivering a comprehensive mind-body training system to singers. Leigh’s goal is to maximize the effectiveness of each vocalist’s mind and body to achieve their greatest impact and freedom on stage.

Leigh Graham, Founder

Since 2003, Leigh’s full-time fitness coaching, mindset and meditation studies and certifications, combined with her  performing, have led her to draw some valuable conclusions on how to build a consistent singing practice.  

Leigh has practiced yoga, rock climbing, martial arts, meditation, pilates, triathlon, and strength training, among other forms of mind and body fitness. Through these challenges, Leigh became acutely aware of how certain methods of exercise can help, and how some can hinder one’s singing approach and ability.

Try this little warmup for your whole body. It’s my version of a modified burpee called ‘hit the deck’!
And if you’re joining other fab singers for our mind-body-voice integration day on the 26th, come dressed to sweat 💦 🔥.

Nothing like a workshop that ends in a group sing! 🎶
Oh, and this was right before the spontaneous dance party. 😝

Learn amongst other amazing singers how to transform your on-stage experience (and your audience’s!). ❤️
