Member Spot Light: Leanne Cox

Fitness Training St Pete Fl Case Study: Leanne Cox

Member Of The Year 2018 and Total Body Transformation Challenge Winner 2017: Leanne Cox

Leanne  started with us for our Total Body Transformation Challenge back in January 2017. She ran frequently and “ate healthy” but was still suffering from constant fatigue, a few extra pounds and slowing run times. In fact, we had to delay our first meeting so she could get blood work and tests  to determine the source of her fatigue.


With the big 5-0 approaching, she was ready to try something different before giving up and accepting  being tired and a bit squishy in the middle as a part of “getting older”.   She came in thinking her constant fatigue and bad runs were just something she would have to live with as an approaching 50 full time working mom with an elementary school age child … We knew better , she trusted us and BOOM !

The Ready To Give Up And Accept Extra Weight and Fatigue Working Mom

” If you really want to make a change to feel and look great, you really need to do this! This has changed my life!”

As a personal trainer for over 20 years, I have to say, Leanne  is one of the

most motivated people ever to come into one of our group training programs!


As a full time working mother with an elementary school age child, she could have used a variety of excuses why she “couldn’t” but she made it work and jumped right into her program trusting the process and has become a source of inspiration to women nearing 50 who think they “can’t” get rid of a few pounds, have all the energy they want to enjoy life or  “run with the fast girls” !

I will let you hear the rest from Leanne  herself:

How has your fitness level/health improved since becoming a Fitness St Pete Group Fitness Member ?  I have more energy, better endurance with my running. Running speed is improving. I am also more flexible and feel so much stronger! I have made many positive changes in my diet and have stuck with the food plan.

Personal Trainer St. Peterburg, Florida

How long have you been doing a Fitness St Pete Group Fitness Program and why did you start?  I started on January 16th  because my energy had decreased in the past year and I have been wanting to clean up my diet. My running speed and endurance had declined. I realized that it was time to actively do something about it.

What kinds of results have you achieved so far?
 I lost 10 pounds and 11.5 inches during the challenge and my muffin top is gone! My running speed for a 3 mile run

has gone from a 10:45 minute per mile pace to a 9:45 minute per mile pace. My posture is also a lot better!


What are the two or three biggest benefits you’ve experienced since becoming a group fitness member? Increased energy, improved running endurance/speed, improved nutrition.

How has your program compared with your expectations?  It exceeded them by far. Dianne is very knowledgeable and supportive. She truly cares about her clients!


What would you say to someone on the fence about making a change & committing to their goals? If you really want to make a change to feel and look great, you really need to do this! This has changed my life!!!

Raving Fans

"I didn’t think this weight loss program would be so easy! I dropped 20 pounds eating deliscious foods and working out 3X/week. I know I keep saying that but it’s true! At 63 years old I thought I’d never look and feel this good again! Seriously, I feel like 40 now" - Pattie A, Tierra Verde, Fl

"As a 10X full Ironman finisher, I foolishly came in thinking it would be easy given my background and boy was I wrong. Every time you think you’re getting the hang of it Dianne adds an extra twist to increase the difficulty . I lost 10 lbs and my strength increased." - Tony S , St Pete. Fl

"I had my doubts when I came in on the 14 day rapid results program, however I have become a true believer in the program. In 2 weeks, I had already begun seeing results, both physically and mentally. I feel better, make healthier food choices (most of the time), and am excited for every workout. I thoroughly enjoy the group setting and I appreciate the opportunity to develop new friendships with the other group members!" - Caren, St Pete

"After interviewing a number of different trainers, I met Dianne. My initial impression was that she was knowledgeable in her field and extremely enthusiastic. Being a physician, it was very important that I work with a trainer that had a solid understanding of the science behind the exercises, understood the importance of a multifaceted approach to to a wellness a lifestyle, including not only the physical exercise regimen but also the n nutritional and psychological aspects of their client in order to help them achieve a sustainable, healthy lifestyle for the long haul The bottom line is this: If you a are serious and committed to getting yourself in shape and developing a healthy a and sustainable nutrition and fitness program, then Custom Bodies is where you need to go….It’s as simple as that." - Dr. Michael Sprintz
