From an early age Leo developed an avid interest in exercise, fitness and diet. In his personal life he has competed at a national and international level in bodybuilding, and became fascinated with how the body worked.
He developed a passion for wanting to help and teach others and became a qualified personal trainer. Since then he has worked with an array of clients over the years, gaining vast experience and expertise in designing and delivering diet, fitness and exercise programmes.
Keen to take his abilities further, Leo completed a BSc Honours degree in Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation. This allowed Leo to build upon his knowledge and skills to assess, treat and rehabilitate injuries. He worked on placement in hospitals across northern India, as well as working with clients such as Darlington Football Club.
Leo will deliver appropriate soft tissue, sports/deep tissue massage techniques as well as utilising exercise and stretching/mobilisation principles to plan and implement injury rehabilitation and prevention programmes.

Leo is currently also on the verge of completing a MSc Masters Degree in Dietetics to become a registered Dietitian. This has given Leo a deep understanding of diet and how it relates to health. This, along with his expertise in fitness, exercise and injury rehabilitation puts Leo in a unique position to offer well-rounded help and guidance in living a pain free, high quality of life.
