Kirsten Leal

She/Her/Hers

Kirsten has been on the wellness team at the Cal Poly Recreation center since 2015 when she started teaching workshops designed to help prevent injuries and implement proper lifting mechanics. This grew from a healthy-back series to include a shoulder and knee series. Since then, the class has evolved into a weekly circuit-training class that focuses on building strength, stability, and integrating all the exercises taught in the workshops. As a doctor of physical therapy (DPT), Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), and former Division 1 student-athlete, she loves being active and using a research-based approach to improve the way we move.
