APPI Master Trainer – South Africa
Already having completed his training in Physiotherapy, Leslie went in search of exercise methods to assist his patients to recover from injuries and believed that he could do a lot more for them than just giving them a few exercises at the end of their Physiotherapy sessions. He initially cultivated a love for rehabilitative exercises whilst running land and water-based back rehabilitation classes in Cape Town, South Africa. He then did a full Pilates Comprehensive Certification through the APPI and is qualified to teach and Lecture on Matwork and Equipment including a number of other CPD courses. Leslie is part of the APPI Master Trainer team and has been presenting Pilates and CPD courses locally and internationally to Physiotherapists since 2008. Leslie owns and manages his own Physiotherapy and Pilates Clinic in London. He has experience dealing with clients post injury and surgery to functional restoration. He has a special interest in Therapeutic Stretching and also enjoys challenging his fit clients with higher-level exercises.
