#GymClassHero of the Month: Courtney Leonard

Congrats to January's #GymClassHero & personal training client, Courtney Leonard!

About Courtney...

Gym Class Hero, Courtney Leonard
  • Occupation: Vet @ Center For Veterinary Care (right next door to P.E.!)
  • Club trainer: Allie 
  • Fave workout: Deadlifts because they make me feel strong :)
  • Fave memory @ the club: My first day that I met Allie and told her that my workouts consisted of walking 20 minutes to work and eating takeout so she had her work cut out for her, lol! 

Club Superlative: "Most likely to be wearing hot pink and listening to gangsta rap while working out"


History Lesson: Courtney's Journey with Fitness

"Fitness-wise, before The P.E. Club, I was a disaster... I walked about 30 minutes to and from work and considered that a workout and did nothing else.  I was "skinny-fat" as I liked to joke.  I did belong to an Equinox about 2 years ago for a short period of time, and even had a trainer for a little while there.  They were very discouraging and it only made me want to workout less. When I was with the trainer there they generally used machines with me and did very little free weights... I found it very boring and the group classes were large and overwhelming."

Love Notes to P.E. 

Gym Class Hero, Courtney Leonard
"If you had asked me last year if I could see myself regularly going to the gym and actually even missing it when I didn't go regularly I would have told you that you were insane.  The P.E. Club has made fitness fun and educational. I am proud of what my body can do now and how strong I have become. The improvement in my physique is an added bonus! I get excited when I hit a new squat or deadlift PR... One year ago I didn't even know what that meant!  I am just happy that I have fitness in my life now. 100% would recommend the PE club to anyone I know- they make fitness fun!"
