Who I am!
I am Kara Leonard, an ACE certified personal trainer, ACE certified group fitness instructor, and ACE certified Advanced Health Specialist. (American Council on Exercise). Additionally, I am a certified BOSU balance trainer and am certified in CPR/AED and first aid.
A runner at heart, I have competed in many marathons including the Rock N Roll marathon in San Diego, twice, and the Las Vegas marathon. I've taught aerobics for several years and had pleasure of working for an organization called Stroller Strides for 2 years. I also organize and lead specialized conditioning classes and boot camps, as well as running clinics and sports training.
I've been running Leonard FIT for 2 years in Ridgecrest, Ca with many happy clients that became more like friends. Please see my testimonials!
3 years in a row I, along with my mom, organized a 5K and 10K walk/run in Ridgecrest, Ca to benefit the Semper Fi Fund called the Run for the Fund (SemperFiRun.com). This event has raised over $30,000 for the Semper Fi Fund and helped many of our injured service men and women... we are very proud of that.
Exercise, people, and health are my passion! When I am not training, teaching, or working out I am spending time with my wonderful family.
I come from a family of marines. My hubby is a former marine F-18 WSO and test pilot and is still working in the test and evaluation field with J.F. Taylor here in Pax River. My dad retired after 26 years in the Marine Corps. My mom was a Navy nurse. My brother and sister-in-law are also marines with many combat tours under their belts.
My husband and I have three kiddos that light up our lives and flat wear us out.... we can't ask for anything more!Email me at Kara@LeonardFIT.com or by filling out our online information form on our contact page by clicking here!
