Leon has been a key member of the team for nearly 2 years now, so we’ve sat down and asked him a few questions so our members can get to know him a bit better.
Leon is a Duty Manager here at the Swansea Bay Sports Park and he looks after the indoor facility bookings. He started working in the gym industry 13 years ago and has never looked back.
What brought you to Sport? I was always restless as a child and used sport as a way to discipline myself, I started boxing at about age 10 and it has been a passion of mine ever since.
What’s your favourite sport? I love boxing, the level of fitness and discipline that you can get from it is amazing.
What’s your favourite fitness class to take? My favourite class to take is spin, I enjoy getting involved and doing the class alongside the attendees.
What’s your favourite class to attend? HIIT, I like to get it done – It’s a great class with loads of energy, high intensity and you get a full body workout.
If you were to open your own gym, which bit of equipment would you most like to take with you? The Prowler – it’s a great bit of kit, you can get a full body workout from it, and anyone can use it, no matter their age or ability.
What’s your favourite part of working at the SBSP? The working environment, the ethos and all the people around you. My colleagues are a joy to be around and so are the members. (What kind words?!)
And finally, what is your favourite thing to do outside of work? I enjoy walks on the beach and spending time with my family, family is so important.
We loved catching up with Leon and getting to know him a bit better, hope you did too! Roll on our next catch up with another team member.
