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.
