I grew up in Durango Colorado with my two sisters Tessa and Tilly and our parents Matt and Margaret Leeder. Family has always been a huge part of my life and I’m not sure where I would be without mine.
Growing up I was always into sports, Basketball and Soccer kept me busy and I enjoyed the competitive atmosphere. When I reached high school, sports were still a huge part of my life but I noticed quickly that I had some serious confidence issues and I really disliked the way my body looked. I remember having a really hard time talking to girls and meeting friends, and this carried over into college.
After a year in college I decided to move out to Los Angeles to pursue further schooling and change up my scenery. I moved away from my family and support system and started a new chapter on my own. Needless to say it didn’t go the way I hoped it would. Not only was my confidence at an all-time low, but I was out there by myself so I had no one to help pull me out of the hole I was sinking into. I fell into a serious depression, I stopped going to class, I quit talking to my friends and I was always coming up with excuses for why I couldn’t leave the house. My life consisted of watching movies and TV so I didn’t have to think about the way I felt or how much I hated the way I looked. There were even days I didn’t eat very much, if at all.
I woke up one day and looked in the mirror, and realized I wasn’t living my life anymore. I was just going through the motions and getting through each day as if it were a task I had to complete. I was disappointed in myself and I knew I had to make a change. So I decided I had to take action, I had to do something to get my life back, so I turned to fitness!
I remember going online and looking up articles and blogs about health and fitness. I researched all kinds of different programs until I found the one I thought fit my needs the best. I told myself I had 60 days on this program and if I couldn’t see a change by then I would give myself permission to quit. I was all in, because I couldn’t spend another day feeling the way I did. I went to the gym for every single workout, I followed the diet plan, I read article after article and I made sure to get my sleep and my recovery supplements at the precise time I had scheduled for myself EVERY SINGLE DAY! Looking back I may have gone slightly overboard but, I didn’t just put in the time, I put in the sweat, I worked through sore muscles and I committed everything I had to making a difference.
When I looked in the mirror 60 days later and compared my photos I was blown away. I didn’t even recognize the person I was staring at. I thought to myself, if I can make this kind of change in 60 days what could I do with 90 days or even 365?
That’s when my love for fitness ignited and I pursued it as a career shortly after. I got my personal training certification from the International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA) and started helping other people reach their goals.
For me there’s nothing better than seeing someone make a transformation. When they go from lonely and depressed or insecure, to Confident and ecstatic about who they are and everything they have to offer, it makes my heart happy. There are too many amazingly beautiful, talented people on this earth that have no idea the potential they have inside of them. I never realized how much I had until I started working on myself.
I currently have an online transformation service called the unbreakable academy. The academy has everything you need to make a transformation and keep the results for the rest of your life. I have helped dozens of clients lose weight, build muscle, and change their life. I absolutely love my job and I’m so grateful I get to do what I love for a living. If you think this is something you could benefit from I would love to talk to you and see how I can help. Fitness has changed my life forever, and I love being able to help others accomplish the same thing I did.
