FOUNDER – Leslie Brown, Registered Holistic Nutritionist & Certified Pilates Mat & Equipment Instructor
As a recent graduate from The Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, class of 2016. I hold a Diploma in Holistic Nutrition. I am also the co-owner and co-founder of Pure Pilates established in 2006. My previous career paths were in Advertising and Construction Project Management.
I have been in the fitness & Pilates industry for over 10 years and integrating nutrition was the natural next step forward.
My passion for my own personal healthy lifestyle began at an early age. I had my first gym membership with my Mom at age 12, was very interested in and kept may articles on fitness and nutrition and began to be very aware of my diet. However as a young girl, consumed by the “idea” of the perfect strong and healthy body, I was unable to truly understand what was needed to attain my goal. Struggling to process it all, I became confused and developed an eating disorder in my mid to late teens. With the help of my family, my own intuition and my natural maturation process, I discovered and began to focus on healthy nutrition. Directing my energy into determining what true success looked like, has lead me to where I am today; on a path of well being for my digestion, fitness level, weight and overall health, not just for myself, but for my family as well. I now live, eat , breathe and sleep this passion of health and I’m grateful for my previous experiences, that have helped shape me into who I am today.
I’ve grown so much through·out two pregnancies and the last 4 years studying the science of nutrition, the body’s metabolic processes and diseases that affect it, food manufacturing and production and how different foods affect the body and the mind. I’m here to help you cut through the clutter of information out there, to help you achieve your health goals and to motivate and inspire all ages. My ultimate goal is to empower you and your family to make better choices with your nutrition and ultimately your health!
I’ve lived through all the fad diets and I have made it my mission to share with you a better way…a FAR better way!
Let’s take the next steps together and look a little deeper, at the cellular level where all bodily processes begin, where change can occur and healing can take place!
My expertise include: Children’s Nutrition, Nutrition for Athletes of any age, Weight Loss, Digestion and healthy Aging.
As an entrepreneur and wife and mother of two, I have the passion to get you on the right path!
