Vernon’s best fitness trainer for 1-1 personal training,
specialized training and group fitness classes
Hi, I’m Kathy Leake and I have been personal trainer since 2000. Along with my fitness partner Heather, we own a private studio called The Works Training Company.
My interest in fitness began at a very early age with gymnastics and competitive swimming and soon after, I found my love of the gym and weights. I initially took the personal training program for personal knowledge, and quickly realized it was what I should make my career. Since that day, I haven’t looked back and have been loving every day!
I’m available for one-on-one private training sessions or fun and challenging classes in a relaxed, professional atmosphere.
Personal Training with me, you can expect a challenging, yet balanced approach. It encompasses not only weight training but guidance for overall health and wellness, nutritional counselling, and functional fitness for everyday living.
For me, to be able to pass my knowledge along to people to help them achieve their goals – whatever those may be – is the greatest feeling! I have trained clients with many different needs and varied goals, from men and women with weight loss as a focus, post-injury clients, teens trying for scholarships, elite athletes, people training to climb Mt. Everest, and everyone in between.
With a calm and patient approach, my goal is to help everyone I work with realize that fitness CAN be fun – especially once your goals start becoming results!

Exercising to a level you and your body can handle can help improve mood, retain or increase muscle and reduce body fat and increase your quality of life overall.

I trained with Kathy for just over one year and can’t begin to express how amazing the experience was. I had been to other trainers and tried all types of workouts on my own and had never achieved the fitness level I wanted. In just a short time working with Kathy, I had never felt […]
She is a mean evil (bi%%#) who put me into the best shape I had been in years with more energy than I had ever had. She has specific exercises that she uses, such as head bangers and 21’s. OH trust me, they work amazingly well. I’ve had a weight problem my whole life. Kathy […]
I am one of those people who have really good intentions when it comes to working out. I usually have great plans as to my next exercise regimen and if I actually implement my plan, it usually fizzles in a couple of weeks. Kathy has been my personal trainer now for about 6 months and […]
I worked with Kathy as my personal trainer for over a year. I not only got in great shape, lost weight and inches but had a blast doing it. Kathy is an excellent trainer and works your butt off but the results are totally worth it. She is a super friendly person with a great […]
As a physiotherapist who’s been at fitness & sports injuries for (alas) a long while, I’ve been thoroughly impressed with Kathy Leake, both professionally & personally.There’s absolutely no doubt that she puts every ounce of focus into those she trains. Her spotting of postures and cuing to correct the bio mechanics of whom she’s training, […]
I was very fortunate to train with Kathy for 2 years. In that time I lost 50lbs, became much stronger, healthier, and most importantly, happier. Her workouts are fun and constantly evolving, testing you with every workout. She has a great way of pushing you so you can achieve your goals and see incredible results without […]
