Fitness has always been a part of Leslie’s life. Starting as a competitive gymnast during her childhood then later moving on to competitive cheerleading in both high school and college, the value of a healthy lifestyle took root in Leslie’s life. Continuing in her love of fitness, after college Leslie became an avid runner completing several half marathons. At the same time Leslie began participating in group fitness classes in order to supplement her existing running regimen. As her love of fitness grew, she developed a passion for helping others reach their own fitness goals. In 2009 Leslie received her primary group fitness certification through the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America.
In 2015 Leslie left her full time job in higher education after having her son, Ford. Becoming a SAHM provided more opportunity to teach group fitness – primarily yoga. A short 17 months after Ford was born they welcomed Ruth into the world! Leslie quickly realized the importance of self care after baby number two and started searching for options to help balance her love for fitness and new role as a mom of two.
Leslie heard of iStroll through a friend in Macon, Georgia and knew it was exactly what she and Birmingham, AL needed! Leslie is GFI, CPR and AEDcertified.
