If you’ve landed here it probably means I’ve sucked you in with my personality. Just kidding. Hopefully it means you are interested in fitness and wellness done the health way.
Well, first, I’m sure when Leslie plans sessions she thinks to herself, “How can I get the most side eye from my clients today?”
Corny jokes aside now.
I have been working with Leslie for about five months now. When I first met Leslie I immediately felt like she was my friend from long time. She is very honest and relatable. And more than anything else, I think that has encouraged me to adhere to my programme.
That doesn’t mean that Leslie is weak or let’s me take gym naps. Sigh! Quite the opposite. She does not let me slack off. She pushes me so that I improve. She also has confidence in me and my abilities and praises me when I do put in the work. Leslie has even taken the time to get to know me and what I hope to achieve, and to understand not only how and why I have been struggling with fitness, but also my strengths.
Leslie is obviously passionate about what she does and is constantly learning, growing and experimenting. The workouts are always interesting and effective. But Leslie also shares her knowledge too. She provides supportive feedback on technique and form and to avoid aggregating my previous injury, and on lifestyle suggestions. I actually look forward to working with her.
This is my second 6 week boot camp training that I’m doing with Leslie and it’s worth the investment!
When I first started in January, I had to do modified burpees, modified sit-ups, modified mountain climbers. Heck modified everything! 😆
But Leslie trained me very methodically yet intensely. She ensures that form is correct. A must for her! And each class was new, different & exciting. Always something “out the box”. I’d look at the board and think “how am I going to get through?”
But she motivated me….. within strict time limits to finish the workout; forcing me to intensify my training & push through.
I’m amazed to see such a great improvement in my strength and endurance. My body feels firm and good too ……So good that I figured with the intense workouts I was doing, I could justify some snacking. So I snacked these last 3 weeks like there was no tomorrow.
….But it came! coupled with my age & hormones 😆 & so I haven’t lost the weight that I know I could have.
Oh well tomorrow is Day 1! See you then Leslie. 👋🏽
