Founder, CEO of Movemeant Foundation and Senior SoulCycle Instructor

After becoming a SoulCycle instructor only a few months earlier—a career move that brought her face-to-face with a lifetime’s worth of body image issues— Gaither used her sweaty, endorphin filled classes to advocate for strength, empowerment and self-worth.
