Leah Holmes (25) is the manager and head trainer at Crossfit Firestarter in Clarkson and currently ranked in the top 50 for her sport in Australia and New Zealand.

Her recent win at the Southwest Olympic Lifting Competition in Bunbury secured her a place to represent the State at the national competition.

She joined the Clarkson gym when directors Justin Robinson and Damien Duyvestein opened it in November 2013.

They plan to hold a �workout of the day� on August 14 to raise funds for the national challenge.
