LEITA ROBOTTOM

Leita RobottomLeita Robottom is an energetic and highly experienced personal trainer who is passionate about helping people achieve their fitness goals. She has been changing the lives of Tasmanians since she started Body Wise Personal Training in 2010.

In addition to being a leader in the Tasmanian fitness industry, she’s a certified low carb, high protein diet specialist and counsellor through Fitness Australia.

What drives Leita

Leita has developed specialised programs that focus on low carbohydrate eating plans, with tailored exercise programs to boost weight loss and create toned bodies. Her personal ethos and professionalism drives her energy, drive and passion for her clients and her business.

When she began Body Wise, she already had an established career and many years experience in the fitness industry. Her realisation that a generic, one-size-fits-all approach to gym-based fitness does not work for everyone—in fact, it works for very few people—led to the creation of her own business and a formula that works.

There’s no secret to the formula – it’s one of sensible diet and specially tailored exercise plans that target a range of levels – and help each client to reach their desired goals. This truly personalised approach reinforces the message that success comes through persistence and a positive attitude and Leita helps clients stay motivated to achieve their goals.

Benefits

The benefits of working with Leita include increased energy, heightened self-esteem and improvements in general health and wellbeing.

While she motivates, inspires and cares for everyone that she trains, Leita now has a new team of professionals who are bringing the same care factor with them in her newest enterprise – Bodywise Gym at Cambridge Park – opening mid July 2016.

In the new location, Leita and her team place full focus on goals that include weight loss, muscle building, toning and a new approach to maintaining a sustainable healthy, happy and balanced lifestyle.

The added bonus is you look and feel better!
