Leah was introduced to CrossFit in early 2009 while working out at Gold’s Gym. With her competitive nature and love for sports, it didn’t take long for her to become hooked. She spent the next few years attending seminars, obtaining certifications, & playing an active role in the CrossFit community. In 2012, Leah left her job in Corporate America and began coaching group classes and personal training. She now co-owns Five Alarm CrossFit with her husband Josh where she continues to pursue her passion for health, fitness, and helping others.
