Leah Holmes (25) is the manager and head trainer at Crossfit Firestarter in Clarkson and is 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.

Coming from a fitness background, she moved into Crossfit in 2011 and joined the Clarkson gym when directors Justin Robinson and Damien Duyvestein opened it in November 2013.

They relocated the business to Caloundra Road, and plan to hold a workout of the day event on August 14 to raise funds for the national challenge.
