Leslie has been involved in the fitness industry for 20 years! Her first job was at a local gym in her hometown of Courtenay, BC. It was there that she was inspired to get her personal training certificate and it led her to study physical education at the University of Vancouver Island. Physical activity is a passion of hers and always has been as she grew up playing lots of different sports year-round. Now, she believes physical activity should be easy and accessible to everyone. Leslie spent the last six years owning and operating a local gym. The gym presented her with the opportunity to meet some incredibly hard-working and inspirational people. The amazing clients that she met over the years are very inspiring to her and are what make my job so rewarding! Leslie has two wonderful sons who are the light of her life. Instilling a positive attitude and mindset surrounding a healthy lifestyle to her kids is of the utmost importance to her. This inspired her to create a program called Fitkids, which aims to get kids active while having fun. Helping young kids get moving and find the fun in being healthy and active has become true a passion of hers.
