Athlete Highlight: Leah Ray

By | Articles | No Comments

Humble, strong af, and gymnasty

Leah Ray doesn’t seek the spotlight, so it’s fun to highlight someone such as herself. She’s a busy, working mom who fits the gym into her schedule because of the way it reminds her of competing in gymnastics as a kid and young adult.

She competes against herself in the gym, which allows her to set her own values and metrics. She gets to choose the goals that fit her best. And maybe the best part is that she’s clearly having fun out there. Energy is infectious, and Leah is always full of it (although, her daily 3D Energy Drink might have something to do with that!).

Get to know a little more about Leah in Coach Evan’s latest “Athlete Highlight” video:
