Arlington, WA 98223-8778

As a fitness and nutrition expert with over 16 years experience I have worked with individuals ages 8 to 98 focusing on their personal goals which have varied significantly. I have worked with every special population imaginable and successfully trained clients for marathons, triathlons, body building shows and lifestyle management.

About my personally, I am the mother of three and owner of Body and Mind Fitness Personal Training and Nutrition Consultation Studio. I have been fit my entire life. Over the past 5 years I have experience miracles in my life that have reinforced my belief in wholistic health (body, mind, and spirit). In 2007 I suffer a serious L-5/S-1 ruptured disc followed by two failed surgeries and a 6 month bout of perscribed narcotic pain medication. This experience gave me a deep understanding of back pain, managing pain and the addictive harmful side affects of pain medication. I rehabed myself from this condition after being told I would never regain function. SUCCESS!! NO MEDICATION!! In the summer of 2011 I broke and dislocated my neck playing with my children. I was given a 3% chance to live with certian neurological damage. My amazing fit and healthy body and personal determination proved all wrong. After 5 months I was released from my surgical team to resume my live with no limitations and NO NEUROLOGICAL DAMAGE. I have a deep understanding and respect for the miracle of our amazing bodies.

The Body & Mind Fitness Personal Training Difference: I am passionately committed to my mission of changing people’s lives around the world by helping them adopt a more healthy and fit lifestyle so they look and feel their best.
I Guarantee Results: My primary focus is to ensure my clients achieve the goals they have set for themselves. I operate from a belief that everyone should have a trainer – even for as little as once per month. Having your own personal coach overseeing your program and progress is the key to success. Without this type of customized attention, the majority of people never achieve their goals. My clients achieve life-changing results. This is what it’s all about for me. Nothing brings me greater joy than to know that I have positively impacted someone’s life.
Personalized Attention & Creative and Fun Workouts: I want you to know that your sessions are all about you. Every Fitness and Nutrition program is different - one size does not fit all! Depending on your goals, physical fitness level, interests, and your individual muscular imbalances, I will design a custom-fit program perfect for you. Best of all – I make it fun. With me, it’s more than just a workout – it’s a lifestyle!
Extraordinary Personal Trainer, Lifestyle & Weight Management Consultant, and Fitness Instructor: As a fitness professional, I take my role seriously. I have detailed systems in place to ensure I do an exceptional job with every single client. I study the human body, exercise physiology, cutting edge programming, nutrition, adherence, and behavioral change research, I subscribe to numerous trade journals and attend world-class fitness conferences every year. What does all this mean to you? RESULTS! I don’t feel successful until you’ve achieved success. You are my number one priority! I hate to boast but I am one of the best trainer’s in the world. As a Fitness Expert I have provided exceptional customer service, innovative programming and the results that my clients achieve have been amazing. You can be rest assured you'll be taken care of! When it comes to your health, don’t you want to work with the best?!

    I started coming to Leanne a few years ago and have been in and out of her studio every since. She never gives up on me and always accepts me right where I am at, yet she pushes me past my fears and encourages me to move forward by making healthier choices and giving up excuses. When you train with Leanne she invests in you and always goes above and beyond what is expected and the results are above and beyond what is expected. I am returning to Leanne for the 3rd time because she is a motivator, encourager, and influences positive changes in my attitudes and habits that benefit my health. You still have to do the work, but she holds you accountble to it! Leanne is a blessing! Diona Ries

    Working with Leanne is giving me the motivation I need to stick with a nutrition and workout program ...and to achieve my goals to be stronger, healthier, and thinner as I approach my 64th birthday. Her positive and caring attitude makes me look forward to my workouts! I feel younger, already! Thank you, Leanne!

    Leanne is a great trainer and motivator. Through a combination of yoga and strength training, my hip pain is completely gone. I feel strong and energized from the programs Leanne has instructed. I have been working with her for over 5 years and have never felt any reason to look elsewhere.

    I began training with Leeann in 2008 at Golds Gym. I was training for an upcoming physical test for a firefighting job I was pursuing. Leeann kicked my butt into shape and I passed the test and gained confidence and a healthy lifestyle. Three years later I began training with her again because I enjoyed it so much the first time. My dad also trained with leeann and lost 100 lbs. He'd never stepped into a gym before he met her and was significantly overweight. Leeann gave him his life back and the knowledge to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

    Leanne is clearly a professional, her knowledge of precise weight training techniques has helped me to work on exact muscle groups. Her understanding of nutrition and fitness has improved my quality of life.
