CATHY LEBER

Level II Fitness Trainer / Summerville SC.

American Council of Exercise Certified

Fitness Nutrition Specialist

CPR & AED certified

B.S. in Physical Education

With over 10 years of experience in the fitness and health industry, I’ve worked with a wide range of clients from 14 years old up to seniors in their 70’s. I believe that exercise is a fundamental part to living a well balanced life and it should be enjoyable.

Since being diagnosed with lip-edema in 2014, I had to change what being “healthy” meant. Health is no longer a certain size in clothes or a number on a scale, it’s seeing what you can make your body do. I like to incorporate functional training moves along with some creative moves to keep exercise from being boring. I strive to make my clients feel accomplished and empowered after working out with me. I also love teaching group fitness and modifying moves so that everyone can participate and still get a great workout.
