Leonie Lynch approaches fitness using the wisdom of the body itself, believing truth and beauty can be found in its movements. She gives the body a voice to which the mind gradually listens. This mindfulness provides a mental and physical alignment that allows for accelerated body transformation results. She’s a motivator, full of palpable energy and power, who focuses on movement fitness, but also functional performance. Both hard-working moms and hard-core athletes turn to her for results, which she administers at full steam.
Leonie is an experienced trainer, an impassioned instructor, a fierce female force and a dedicated mother of girls Beau and Robyn. Strength is at the heart of what she does and she believes in building it from the inside out, body and mind. She carefully imparts proper technique to her clients and fully explains the ‘why’ so they understand each position and the anatomy of each movement. Leonie considers individual needs, but helps her clients surpass them, empowering confidence to grow along the way.
All of Leonie’s classes are based on the Pilates Principles of control, centering, alignment, concentration, precision of movement and flow. She likes to keep things interesting and banish boredom, so her classes are always different. Her persuasive demeanor combined with fiery dynamism are just what is needed to galvanize anyone’s workout, not to mention the beautiful movements of the human body.
