Leigh Penman


Leigh Penman has been writing for bodybuilding magazines, websites and nutritional supplement companies since 1985. Whilst residing in the UK she earned the reputation of being one of the top female writers in the bodybuilding related media. Her credits included being a contributing editor on all the magazines in production as well as filling the shoes of Ladies Editor and Showbiz Editor on two publications (the later being on Arnolds sanctioned magazine 'Bodypower'). During this time she also competed successfully on four occasions (placing in the top four in all contests).

Relocating to New York in the late 1990's she focused her writing attention to crystal healing techniques and metaphysics - however, she still maintained a five day work-out schedule during this time and gained her personal training certificate.

Having also studied pharmacology in relation to sports performance her writing began taking her in that direction until the present day which sees her embarking on a return to the magazine world as well as extending her web related work in the bodybuilding and fitness field.

Leigh has been working out for close to thirty years so she is clearly a writer who 'walks her talk'.
