IFBB Pro Leah Berti started her path into fitness and training as a Varsity Track athlete and a high level volleyball player. From a very young age, she always had a passion for lifting weights and continually challenging herself, setting high expectations and goals.
Leah’s excitement for the gym eventually lead her to her first competition at the age of 19, a rookie in the sport however a natural onstage; winning her class and the overall as one of the
youngest lightweight bodybuilders in her very first competition. The rest is history. Leah fell in love with competing and has not looked back for the past 9 years; starting off as a lightweight bodybuilder and then progressing to find her niche in the sport of Figure, where after years of hard work and dedication she achieved her IFBB Pro Card at the 2011 Canadian Natural Nationals in Montreal by winning her class and the Overalls. This was a great honor for Leah, since in Canada there are only 2 pro cards given out in a year.
