I have trained with Leon for over 12 months now, and have always appreciated the great results he helps me achieve. I have continued to work with Leon through the first 36 weeks of my pregnancy and my obstetrician is delighted that I have maintained my fitness levels, for the benefit of both myself and my child. I’m looking forward to Leon’s help in returning to my pre-pregnancy shape after the birth! I would recommend Leon’s fantastic service to anyone looking to achieve the results they’ve always dreamed about.


I have been training with Leon for four years. I love his approach and his ability to find an exercise regime that challenges and improves fitness and confidence without causing injuries. Post baby and surgery I had NO core strength and struggled with basic exercises. Leon understood this and those days are behind me. Highly recommended !!!!


Some three and a half years ago while building my own house I had an accident which left me a paraplegic.  I was told that I would never walk or work again. The doctor said that if I was up to it, I might be able to make a contribution to society by mixing with people in wheelchairs and by trying to get a better deal for people who suffer such a plight in our society.

About 18 months ago I heard about a personal trainer, Leon Leis, who was willing to
travel to clients homes to work with them to enhance their physical well being with his expertise. I started training with Leon as a person with very little core strength in my body.  My legs were totally without any muscle strength and flopped to one side in the wheelchair. My self-confidence was at an all time low.

Eighteen months later, after training with Leon, I now work full-time, I have completed a Masters degree, I travel regularly for work-related purposes and walk with the aid of a brace on one leg. From Leon’s inspiration, I am now confident that in another eighteen months, I will be walking without my leg brace and participating in more overseas travel.

Thank you, Leon, for assisting me to get on with the rest of my life with a dignified purpose.

Leon has been helping me improve my fitness levels (strength, endurance, cardiac capacity) over the last 6 years by providing a creative and personalised training program on a regular basis. He has a gentle but firm manner that guarantees results. He ensures that the program is continually tailored to suit my specific needs. I highly recommend Leon and am confident that any future clients of his program will be pleased with his excellent personal training skills and approach.


After major knee surgery I was unable to undertake strenuous exercise. Once my physio gave me the all clear to do moderate and restricted exercise I contacted Leon at Courage International. I needed a trainer who would understand my limitations, but also assist in my rehabilitation and return to exercise. I knew that if I trained on my own I would risk further injury so I needed to have appropriate training planned and a person to monitor me.

My trainer Leon tailored the sessions to meet my specific rehabilitation needs. He clearly put a lot of time into designing the sessions which were full of variety and a lot of fun. Leon challenged me within my injury capabilities but made sure there was no risk of damage to my knee. He had a thorough understanding of how the body works and I still managed to work up a sweat even with limited movement. I left each session feeling exhilarated. The sessions were held close to my work and Leon was very flexible with availability times.

I highly recommend Leon at Courage International Personal Trainers. The professionalism and passion for what he does is second to none. Thanks to his assistance my physio was stunned with my improvement and after only a couple of months with Leon!
