About Leigh: Leigh LeGare has an impressive background in sports and began building a reputation for herself as a high school athlete playing basketball for the number one team in the nation (Copperas Cove High School, Copperas Cove, TX). She furthered her success in basketball as one of the leading rebounders in her conference and lettered all four years at Grove City College in Grove City, PA. Leigh’s career as an athlete didn’t stop after college. She tried out and made the D.C. Diva’s women’s professional football team and worked part-time as a personal trainer while teaching at an inner city high school in Washington D.C. She also coached the J.V. girls’ basketball team to a district championship. Leigh’s passion for teaching others, coupled with her love of fitness and coaching, helped her decide to leave her teaching career and pursue a full-time career within the health and fitness industry. This transition allowed Leigh to start her career performing exercise-based therapy for people with spinal cord injuries helping them accomplish things they never thought imaginable. Including proper programming and sequencing which lead to their first steps after being told they’d never walk again. She currently works for Airrosti Rehab Centers and holds certifications in ACE, CPR, and CrossFit Level 1. Leigh’s creative nature and desire to constantly educate others has helped clients of all ages and ability levels progress to leading healthier, more optimal lifestyles.
A message from Leigh: CrossFit has given me an inner drive and commitment to a lifetime of fitness and is what propels my desire to see others reach their fullest potential. Having the opportunity to coach for CrossFit Austin intensifies this desire as I am surrounded by people who exceed the expectations they have for themselves on a daily basis. They don’t just embrace who they are or how far they’ve come; they OWN it!
