I was very proud to make it in the top 10% of my age group (top 11% overall) for the 2022 CrossFit open. I worked really hard for that! I love anything with the barbell and am also very proud of my 335 pound deadlift.

I'm Leslie, been doing CrossFit since 2016. I started coaching in 2018. I'm a runner turned CrossFit! I still like to run occasionally, but I knew when I was running and wondered if the barbell missed me as much as I missed it, I was definitely going to make the change to incorporate more CrossFit in my life! I've been married to my husband since 2005 and we have 2 boys who keep us busy doing motocross.
A turning point in my life was when my Mom passed away at the young age of 50. That made me realize just how short life is and to live it to my fullest. It also showed me just how important our health and wellness are. Our bodies were made to move and we also have to give our bodies the proper fuel to do so.
I originally started coaching mostly because I just loved CrossFit so much and I wanted to learn everything about it! I'm almost 5 years into coaching and I'm still learning every day! As I started coaching here at Una Stamus, I found out how passionate I am about helping our members achieve their goals. There is nothing better than seeing the smile and confidence on someone's face as they just achieve a goal they never thought they could. I also love getting to know people I probably would have never met without CrossFit. We have the best community around!
