About Leslie

After spending 6 years in the Army and raising 2 daughters I realized I couldn't keep doing what I was doing and be healthy. My inactive lifestyle led me to gain weight and I wasn't happy with how I felt or how I looked. So I began my fitness journey to become my best self. I am still a work in progress just like you. Along the way I have become a group fitness instructor and certified personal trainer. I love helping others realize the only limits are the ones they place on themselves. Everyday we wake up is a new opportunity to do better than the day before.

My favorite client story

My favorite clients are those that have an open mind and are willing to do what it takes to reach their goals. Set backs may happen but don't let them derail you.

My favorite exercise

Burpees....just kidding it's squat jumps

My favorite quote

Actions speak louder than words

My training philosophy

Do what you like and have fun....that makes it easier

My training experience

At the beginning of my fitness journey I lost 20 pounds on my own. From that experience I gained confidence in myself and a passion for health and wellness. I decided to become a group fitness instructor in 2016 and I started personal training in 2019.
