Leigh is originally from La Jolla, CA; she went to college at Chapman in Orange and has been in Orange County since then. She re-discovered her love of spin after the birth of her second child. She was overweight from having carried two babies back to back (and self-admittedly, because she indulged her pie cravings while pregnant!) and she wanted to get back in shape. Leigh joined a local studio and within six months decided to go through their teacher training. Fast forward almost 7 years (and one more baby later!) and she’s still doing it!
Leigh likes to play songs that riders are familiar with. She wants you to get lost in the music and thinks hearing your favorite songs can help that! You’ll mostly hear Top 20 songs in her classes. This fit mama has always loved the saying “dance like no one is watching,” but she especially loves how it pertains to class at GritCycle. She says, “It doesn’t matter if it’s your first time or you’ve been coming since it opened. Just dance and have fun. Don’t worry about always getting it ‘right.’” Join Leigh for an upbeat sweat-date in the Saddle Room!
