Leslie

Leslie grew up being non-athletic and was focused on excelling in academics alone. In her quest to achieving a six-pack, she has discovered powerlifting and fell in love with the sport.  

Failure to achieve a total in her very first Int’l competition has inspired Leslie to quit the shipping industry and start as a trainee fitness trainer at Gold’s Gym Philippines in 2010. 

Leslie, in the quest of making of herself a better athlete, worked full-time for 5yrs at Gold’s Gym Philippines as a personal trainer in order to learn more about the movements that she does in competition.

She believes that strength is a skill that can be learned by everyone and is very essential in one’s pursuit of excellence in any field.
