Leslie grew up around sports from football to volleyball to wrestling but kickboxing was always her dream sport. In 2013 she finally decided to change her life and tried kickboxing. She learned persistence, how to challenge herself and she felt like she found her calling. Seven years later she decided to take her boxing and kickboxing skills to the next level and began training with the St Louis Boxing Club trainers to help gain the skills to help others on their boxing/kickboxing journeys. Her favorite aspect of training is the sense of accomplishment seeing members master a new skill.
