Meet the Founder

Lee-Ann Bostwick, BSc (Hons), MCSP
Lee-Ann, or just or Lee for short, that’s cool too :)

Chartered Physiotherapist, natural haircare enthusiast and former fitness instructor, Lee-Ann Bostwick was almost destined to create something all about Doing Both. After all, the 23-year-old award-winning SlickFit™ founder has been doing both, embracing the dualities of life, wearing both 'hats', her whole life. 

From training in both classical ballet and martial arts as a youngster, to getting a pretty “posh” all-girls, secondary school education whilst growing up in “urban” South London, to squeezing in some HBCU college life at Washington D.C’s, Howard University before obtaining her professional degree back in the UK... You can say she’s been all about getting the best of both worlds for some time. 
And we can’t forget her dual cultural influences: Jamaican mother, Guyanese father, repping both flags (and foods) just the same! 

For Lee-Ann, always seeking a win-win situation meant it was only a matter of time before she began to question why we had to choose between our haircare and our equally as important, fitness goals.
 
Whilst slugging through her final year of undergraduate studies, moving from town to town completing her clinical hours, filled with some really good and really bad hair days, as well as those really dedicated and really not-so-on-it weeks of gym going. She was compelled to bring those two major components of her identity together.

With so much else we busy professionals, students, parents, athletes alike have to focus on and split our limited time between, Lee-Ann grew determined to make doing both, and then some, that much easier and possible by developing SlickFit.
As a healthcare professional and exercise expert, Lee-Ann knows all about the various barriers and motivations each of us may have to exercise, no matter where we are in our journey. Furthermore, she's overcome her own obstacles in the gym first hand...
Not too long before, like many of the people she'd later go on to care for, she too had gone from bedbound patient suffering a debilitating, long-term knee condition – later diagnosed as chondromalacia patellae ("runner's knee" - her cartilage practically wore away.. in both knees! Ouch) – to an actively rehabbing, tunnel-visioned, teen-turned-fully qualified fitness instructor... All before said year was even up!
And as dedicated as she's proven to be to both her hair and fitness journeys over the years, and now as Lee the physio/ SlickFit™ founder, Lee-Ann is just as devoted to facilitating your hair and fitness goals. Helping you, to #DoBoth.
