Leigh grew up in Orange NSW, west of Sydney over the Blue Mountains, and has been coming to the Mid North Coast area since childhood to visit relatives and enjoy the beautiful beaches.
He studied predominantly in Albury, received a Bachelor of Physiotherapy from Charles Sturt University, and worked in private practice in that region for 5 years. He then moved back to Orange to be closer to family and work in a practice with a gym to split his time between diagnostic and hands-on work. Leigh loves working with long term rehabilitation clients, providing strength and conditioning programs for local schools and academies, and generally just loves meeting new people to help.
Since relocating from the Central West of NSW, he can be found out and about on the beaches on the Coffs Coast enjoying the sunshine and ocean.

Your top tip
Activity should be a bit like a diet. Have good amounts of the essentials, have some diversity so it doesn’t become a chore, and anything too extreme will be hard to maintain long term.
People would be surprised if they knew…
I have a major sweet tooth and is more worried about a bakery’s custard tart quality than meat pie prowess!
