Leigh has a Bachelor’s of Arts in Contemporary Dance from the University of Texas. Using her dance background as an excuse to move to New York City, she quickly became a gym rat, and realized that teaching fitness classes was as much fun and more lucrative than teaching dance classes. She became certified and taught at many New York clubs including Equinox and New York Sports Club. This led to a personal training certification, and a busy in-home personal training business.
Finally, she was on the Training and Development Team for Town Sports, Int. (New York Sports Club), where she helped run workshops for incoming trainers and group fitness instructors. Now that she lives in Toronto, she teaches group fitness classes at of all types around the GTA.
