Leigh Penman has been writing about many aspects of bodybuilding since 1985. Her heart is in the true art of training and she is more than well-educated on the industry, its up and downs, and the directions it should take to progress. She is a shining figure who maintains that women’s issues and support for female athletes must be improved and enhanced within the sport of bodybuilding. With 30 years of training experience to her name, you can be sure that Leigh isn’t someone who writes about bodybuilding without thinking to lift a weight or two. That’s what I call “Tried, Tested, and True.” Leigh maintains that even with success, you can’t take the backseat to fitness, and this I believe, is one of the qualities that makes her star shine so bright. Continually walking what she talks, ensuring her writing is not only a product of mind, but of body experience also. Committed to her craft, Leigh aims to be a thought-provoking writer, blazing trails for women all over the sport and lending them a powerful, consistent, reliable, and responsible voice. When women in bodybuilding are being disregarded or not being taken at full worth, you can expect Leigh to step up to the plate and speak about it when others just watch and go. Her passion is unparalleled and one can expect her to keep providing the bodybuilding industry with influential and inspiring pieces. Leigh’s loves outside of bodybuilding include music (Leigh originally started writing as a music journalist in the 1980’s) and reality shows, her guilty pleasure. In her time as a music journalist in the UK, Leigh had her own syndicated music/ gossip column and wrote for all major music sources. The bodybuilding world can be thankful that she made the move from music toward a focus in the training industry. She is an asset to be celebrated. If Leigh could change anything about the sport of bodybuilding, she would introduce more shows for women, wider coverage of the women’s sport and more prize money for the pro shows, among many other goals. Leigh continues to work toward the top of the writers’ mountain, and on that journey, will surely help bodybuilding in finding it was back to the pinnacle of athletics.
