Leigh Brandon, the Founder of BodyCHEK has a mission to help as many people as possible to reach their health and performance potential, so they can live more productive, fulfilling and happier lives.
He combines a number of professions to provide a truly comprehensive approach to helping his clients and athletes. Leigh is a CHEK Practitioner Level IV, Holistic Lifestyle Coach Level III, Metabolic Typing® Advisor, Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist™, Golf Biomechanic and Active Release Technique® Therapist. Leigh also completed accreditation with The UK Strength and Conditioning Association in 2007.
Leigh has specialised in injury rehabilitation, weight loss and sports conditioning since 1996. In addition to his practitioner skills, he is an author of three fitness books, an international presenter, a member of the C.H.E.K Institute Faculty and also teaches a number health and fitness related workshops.
Leigh has helped many people overcome back, neck, shoulder and knee pain, chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, achieve their ideal weight and has helped athletes both amateur and professional improve performance, win medals and eliminate recurring injuries. Leigh’s clients include British and European champions and record holders and Olympic athletes.
Leigh’s approach has enabled him to help clients with the most difficult conditions to achieve success where other modalities have previously failed.
His experience has shown that the conventional approach to health, disease, exercise and nutrition don’t sufficiently satisfy the needs of the general population or professional athletes. Leigh is passionate to help people achieve their goals using a holistic approach over the long term and wishes to educate the people about ‘the truth’ to achieving health, vitality and optimal performance.
“I’ve personally been involved in much of Leigh’s training all the way to CHEK Level 4. His own transformation is evident in what he now offers his clients as a highly skilled therapist, and what he offers all of us as an astute educator”
Paul Chek, Founder of the C.H.E.K Institute
