This job, for me, is so much more than helping someone move their body. I believe our world is heavily influenced by a person’s looks and that those looks/body size/shape, often time, determine that person’s value in society. And although that idea is likely what drives the personal training and coaching industry, I just refuse to buy into it. My favorite thing about being a movement coach is being alongside them while exploring movement for more purposes than just to make their body change shape. Knowing I have a small part in helping someone realize that they decide what gives them value by showing compassion and kindness to themselves and their body is my true passion.
Get to know Leslie
- Biking, outdoor sports, rock collecting/hunting, interior design/decorating and snuggling with my kids. I pretty much love anything outside, in the sun and near or on water. I also love to try new things especially if it comes with a little adrenaline.
Favorite movie/tv show?
- Movie: Interstellar
Show: The Office
Favorite place to vacation?
- I’ll never say no to a vacation near an ocean or somewhere with a beautiful scenery. I’m a sucker for a killer sunrise/sunset!
