Left axis deviation in ECG means there is more electrical activity in left ventricle due to left ventricular muscle hypertrophy the causes of which are many . In your case there are no serious reasons for this to happen except that you have mild hypertension . I suggest an antihypertensive and statins to reduce LDL levels. Keep up the physical activity , you are doing great .
