If Leonie is known for anything, it’s putting others before herself. Prior to finding CrossFit, Leonie lived with her husband in India. After years away from friends and family, they eventually returned to Leonie’s hometown, Winnipeg. She invested herself into building a successful jewelry business with her husband and they had two kids together. It was here that she first discovered CrossFit. Like most of us, she was immediately hooked. Before long, in 2012 she began coaching and has dedicated countless hours to her progression as both an athlete and a coach.
Leonie’s true love is the sport of CrossFit and in 2014 she made a pivotal decision to join Undefeated CrossFit and it’s competition program that was quickly gaining momentum. Relentless in nature, she trained with some of Winnipeg’s best and watched seven of her training partners qualify for Regionals competition in Tacoma, Washington. Though her competition season was over, she quickly transitioned into coach mode and her impact on preparing Undefeated’s athletes for Regionals can not be mistaken.
As the sport of fitness evolves, and Undefeated with it, Leonie will be in the middle of it all. Somehow between running a business, and being a mom, she finds the time to train every day and make our athletes better. With next year’s training season in sight, she is already immersed in the development of Unleashed, Undefeated’s competition program.
Be careful if you find yourself in a class with Leonie, she has a remarkable ability to motivate athletes to push past what they think they’re capable of. Wether she’s coaching or just working out beside you, you can bet she’s looking for opportunities to make you better.
