Hello I am Leeza - The Health & Confidence Coach and this is a little bit about me..
I’m a personal trainer, lifestyle and confidence coach I help people with physical and holistic health and wellness.
I help people turn their lives around, so that they can live a fit, healthy and happy lifestyle because everybody deserves to be proud of who they are and they deserve to have that feeling of un-shakeable certainty within themselves so that they can bring it unashamedly into their world.
Start living in colour, you are too awesome to be black and white.
I set up my own business after working in a corporate city gym because I didn’t just want to be a PT, I wanted to help with the whole lifestyle transformation not just the physical side of it but the mental and emotional journey too.
Now I’m able to be that person that teaches confidence, self development, healthy eating habits as well as being an effective, experienced and motivational lifestyle coach and personal trainer.
I haven't always been into health and fitness. My journey began back in 2011. I was only 22 at the time and I was at my biggest, in denial that I had put on another dress size.
Despite my friends telling me I looked fine, I was super aware of it - all the time.
A few years before this I had been through one of the biggest experiences of my life - I underwent a huge spine correctional surgery after discovering I had scoliosis (curvature of the spine) at the age of 16. The curve was pretty severe at 85°.
I ended up having 2 surgeries within a week of each other and suffered pretty bad nerve damage resulting in my left leg not working. I couldn't feel it or move it.
I spent a good 5 years learning how to walk again and 10 years to get off all the meds and this is where my interest in fitness began. Whilst I was recovering with hydrotherapy and physiotherapy I was amazed to learn how the body works.
The highlight of my entire life was the day I finally took my first few steps unaided. I walked 10 steps and fell to the floor crying happy tears!
I felt like I was letting it all go to waste by not doing anything about my body and as the weight creeped up, my self confidence and love for myself went down. After years of torment I finally decided that in order to shut that voice up I was going to have to actually get fit. I started working out for 15 minutes a day for 30 days in order to see what it would bring me. You can read my personal story here.
It’s been a long time since then and my only regret is - I did not take a before pic. To be honest, I didn't think I would do it and couldn't stand the sight of myself, I didn't want to be reminded of yet another failure to get fit and healthy.
My biggest blessing is that I am lucky enough to be here, I love that I am that person that gets to guide, educate and help others beat their own bully brain into submission and get what you really want out of life.
