“Thanks Leah for everything! you have helped me realize that losing wieght and eating healthy is possible and do-able! I have continued the meal plan and exercises. Its been 1 week since the last weigh- in and I have lost 5lbs and I’m feeling great. Im so close to meeting my target weight. Without you I don’t think I would have been able to do it. THANK YOU!!!!! P.s. I will be signing back up for more bootcamp classes next month!” – Monika C.
“Thanks for EVERYTHING Leah! I’m down another 3 pounds and am using your teachings and workouts everyday. 🙂 I think I’ll sign up for some more Bootcamp. I loved it and it changed my body, attitude and life! Again..THANK YOU! You are a great leader and inspiration! :-)” – Jen C.
Leah is a very good personal trainer/bootcamp instructor. She is knowedgeable, motivational, and creative with her classes. I keep going back to Leah because she has done more for me seeing her twice a week for a year, than going to a gym five days a week for 3 years. If you want the best you go to Leah! – Angela C
Leah is the only one who has ever managed to absolutely dynamically improve my workout and give me results! I am so blown away by her physicality and intensity. I can only dream to reach her tenacity for hardcore training. One step at a time! But I’m glad she’s with me every step of the way! – Miroki Tong
Leah has an amazing ability to motivate you! I used to have a super hard time getting out to the gym and after trying Leah’s Bootcamps and her Fat Loss Challenge I am more motivated than ever! She knows what works and pays attention to every person in her class! If you want to work your butt off and love it then try one of Leah’s Bootcamps you won’t regret it! – Shannon Bourgeois
Leah’s classes are powerful, intense and successful. I came to lose my last bit of baby weight and I lost it, but more importantly I found a new way to give back to myself. To be in the moment and push myself further than I realized I could. Leah’s leadership style is no nonsense and strong, keeping you on target and trying; but her strength lies in her underlying compassion to see you succeed. You can tell her regular clientele respects not only her program and results but her strength and belief in them. – Jennifer Ross
Let me first say that Leah’s classes are NOT “booty camp” classes. They are no-nonsense, dynamic full-body conditioning classes that kick your butt and constantly challenge you! I first came to Leah’s boot camp classes last June and was looking for a new challenge in my work outs. I had done various other “boot camp” style workouts and while some were really good, I always found myself bored after a while. In addition, I’ve suffered from back problems the last few years and either found myself unable to work out for months at a time or couldn’t do a lot of exercises because it would flare up my back issues. Leah adjusted exercises for me and even took the time after class to show me additional exercises to help strengthen my back. Whether you’re just beginning or work out regularly, I highly recommend Leah’s Boot Camp classes at Strength Powered Fitness! – Sarah Tingle
The 21 Day Fitness Challenge was great – my energy levels were up, I lost weight and inches. During the 21 days I had my stag and doe, 2 bridal showers, a wedding and my Grandmother’s funeral. I learned that it is a mental game and if you are dedicated to it you can do anything. Timing used to always be an excuse – but there is no time like the present. Yes it was hard, yes I had to pack food everywhere I went but it was so worth it. I’m proud of my results and I learned that perseverance pays off. – Cortney Young
Hi Leah, Congratulations on your engagement! That is so exciting!! I just wanted to say that I am sad to hear about the studio, but you have given all of us amazing tools that we can use at home or at the gym. I know I have never felt better or stronger and my confidence has gone up a lot! I love shopping for clothes now and my energy levels have improved. Congrats again, and enjoy this time!!! Cheers, Lauren
Leah You and your studio are amazing. You are the main reason I was successful in achieving my goals for my wedding and keeping me motivated to continue for the rest of my life. Not only have you helped with my fitness, confidence,etc I have made friends coming to class. All in all you have had a huge impact on my life. Lauryn
I am so excited for you, Leah – Congratulations on your engagement! I don’t think you need to be told how much you’ll be missed or how much you mean to us bootcampers. While Shannon was certainly my inspiration to get started you’ve been a huge part of my motivation to keep going. Thanks to your encouragement – to pick up heavier weights, push for a couple more reps and just not stopping when it really freaking sucks – I know I’ll keep going! Caralyn
Congratulations Leah! Wow, I think I can speak for all of us when I say that I am so happy for you. Although I’m sad that you are moving on, I’m glad our paths crossed and am very grateful to have had this opportunity to learn from you. You have changed the way I see fitness because you made it fun and different. Congrats again and all the best! Erin
I have tried a few bootcamps around town and I must say yours was my favourite hands down – I seriously got addicted to it and LOVED coming to every class. You were an inspiration to us all!! I’m in the best shape of my life and I know SPF has a lot to do with it.

“Leah is a creative and adaptable trainer who has a solid foundation of experience, knowledge, and rock solid technique. Her sessions were thoughtfully structured but never repetitive or boring. She also set a good example with her own exercise and nutrition habits, unlike many other trainers I have observed. I truly enjoyed training with Leah and would recommend her to anybody who wants to work hard, have fun, and enjoy the results.”

I have been working with Leah for 2 years now. At first I was just trying everything out but a year and a half ago Leah helped kick my butt into gear and she has been kicking it ever since! She has put so much effort into my transformation (both physically and mentally) and she has taught me so much! I am super excited to be able to get my butt kicked by her again! She is AMAZING!! Thanks Leah! I couldn’t express this enough! <3 <3 <3
