Ali Leasure
Personal Trainer/Exercise Scientist

Ali is a 2006 graduate of IUP with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science. She was an adult student, and she believes this has worked to her advantage because she has experienced the up and downs life has to offer, much like many of the clients she trains. Ali’s story began 18 years ago when she initially became interested in fitness, after losing a substantial amount of weight for her sister’s wedding. Now, exercise and eating healthy are her passions as well as a way of life. In the past 10 years since she obtained her degree, she has earned vast experience in the fitness industry. Ali has trained for LA Fitness in Pittsburgh, private studios, local community gyms and Aging Services of Indiana Co. as a group exercise instructor. Currently, she is an instructor for various fitness classes in the area and offers her training services to clients in their homes. About her career, Ali says, “Experience is so essential in this industry and I’ve gained tremendous knowledge from working with a vast array of clients throughout my career. I also have extensive experience in training at diverse fitness facilities, which has truly aided in my knowledge, skill, creativity & originality. It’s always been exciting for me to get others energized about fitness and help them adopt healthier habits in their life. I love my job and love seeing progress, especially when dealing with health issues where the outcome is a better quality of life. Let me help you in achieving your personal goals!”
