Two weeks ago I was lucky enough to sit down with Adelaide Hills local and bodybuilder Ashleigh Leedham. We chatted all about her journey in bodybuilding from how she got started, her training, diet and what it’s like to compete as a bodybuilder. Ashleigh gave a lot of insight into her experience with body image and dealing with her body changing in and out of competition, which I think everyone can take something away from, regardless of your fitness regime.

Her commitment and love for what she is doing is inspiring to witness, and shines through, even in the hour I spent with her. Her journey really shows that if you find something you’re passionate about it won’t ever feel like a chore.

I also got the chance to take some photos of Ashleigh in action to create a photo story, pairing with just a small fraction of my interview with her.


Ashleigh is also a personal trainer, based in Mount Barker and you can find out more about her and inquire about training with her via her Facebook and Instagram pages.

I hope you found Ashleigh to be as insightful as I did and enjoyed this new way of presenting an interview on my blog!
