Lee Priest’s daughter is following in her father’s footsteps.
Over the weekend, Lee Priest’s daughter Alexandra Leigh “Aleigh” Priest went Pro after winning the Overall Sports Model title at the Australian Nationals. Although not a bodybuilder, Aleigh has clearly inherited her father’s genetic gifts in the fitness division. From just a quick look at her Instagram, you can see she’s made impressive gains over the past few years and has a remarkable physique in her own right:

Chin-ups for females seem to be a weak point or they think that they are not able to do them but with time, patience, determination and practice they will soon discover that once they get over the hurdle of the first 1 they will be able to do more and more each time. If chin-ups are new to you, you can always use an assisted chin-up machine or resistance band to help whist you are getting started 💪🏼 How many can you do?? (📸 by @alec_bruce_mason)
The 27-year-old fitness model is based in Sydney, Australia and has been competing in fitness events for several years now. She has been on a meteoric rise in the past few years, nabbing 1st in Bikini Beginner at the 2018 NABBA State Championships. It’s no surprise that with a father who is a literal legend of bodybuilding that she would be a champion in the making and an athlete to watch.
All this makes for one big happy bodybuilding family. And it looks like her famous father was with her to congratulate her on the win. Take a look at some of the photos he shared of the special day:
Her father, Lee Priest, is a legend of the sport best known for multiple Olympia shows. Now retired from the IFBB, Priest is currently with NABBA and organizes the annual Lee Priest Classic in his native Australia. He famously won IFBB Mr. Australia when he was only 16 years old and went on to have one of the most decorated careers in the league’s history.
