Leah Callovini

Leah recently relocated to Philadelphia from Washington, DC, where she began her fitness career five years ago. Leah participated in team sports in high school, but never really found her home in fitness until college. She fell in love with group fitness while studying at George Washington University. She began teaching Cycling classes in 2012 for the university's Campus Recreation program, which helped her realize her passion for helping others live their healthiest lives by developing healthy habits. After graduating from GWU with her BA in Psychology in 2014, Leah missed studying so much that she then self-studied and obtained both her ACE Group Fitness and ACE Personal Training Certifications within one month of each other. Her group fitness manager convinced her to sign up for the LesMills BODYPUMP Instructor Training program in 2015, which changed her life forever. Leah loves the energy and physical challenge that comes with BODYPUMP's continuous tension training and can't wait for her NGU participants to feel the burn!

Leah worked full-time as a corporate fitness professional for a large government agency in the DC-area before relocating to Philadelphia in January 2017 to pursue her Master's in Sport Business at Temple University. Leah can't wait to get to know her participants at NGU Training: She finds herself continually challenged by her participants and hopes to inspire them to do what they think they can't.
