My Beach Body Rocks owner, Leah Ploumis, realized the importance of fitness and nutrition after gaining 40 pounds from her pregnancy.
As a child, Leah wasn't educated on which foods were healthy and which weren't. "After I gained the weight, I felt tired and lethargic all the time. This was a serious 'wake-up call' for me - I realized it was more important than ever to start eating healthier foods, get in shape and improve the overall quality of my life, not only for me, but for my family." After losing 40 pounds, Leah's life purpose was redefined: to help others improve their health, fitness, appearance and self confidence.
"I want to maximize their state of well being by helping them to change their lives."
As a Certified Personal Trainer for over 8+ years, Leah is all about transformations and living a happier, healthier lifestyle. Leah's transformation story has been featured on Iheart Radio in the “Healthy Aging and Summer Fitness” segments as well as being featured in multiple online publications.

She has worked multiple fitness events, as well as Charity Events and has also been featured on the cover of The Observer magazine at a “Surfers for Autism” event, as well.
