Leigh is a Nurse Anesthetists, which means she has spent many years working crazy hours, putting her patients’ needs before her own.
Just like many others in the health care field that take such good care of the rest of us when we need them most, the erratic hours with no regard for day or night, had really taken a toll on her body. Even though she has always been athletic and working out was a daily part of her life, she was ready for some changes.
She wanted more energy. She wanted her knees not to hurt. She wanted to lose weight. She wanted to feel better during her workouts.
Therefore, the day came where she decided to make the changes she needed to accomplish all of those desires, and more. To date, Leigh has lost more than 80 lbs decreasing her body fat from 39% to a very healthy 22.8%. 😁
Leigh was able to make the changes she needed in her lifestyle to finally truly support the fitness program, and attain all the results she was hoping for. Not only did she lose the weight, has less pain, and more energy, but she also went on to compete in a sport that she loves, and set a new Tennessee State Weightlifting record! The best part of that record though…is that she was able to lift her heaviest weight ever, AT HER LIGHTEST weight ever! Go Leigh!!!!
All of the coaches here at OPEX Franklin are so proud of Leigh’s and her success! We feel so blessed to be a part of her journey, and can’t wait to see what the next 18 months hold for her!
