WHY YOU NEED A PERSONAL TRAINER
"My trainer is committed to getting the most out of the workouts and to reach beyond what I'd otherwise do by myself."
Exercising with personal trainer is the fastest and most effective way to increase your strength, cardiovascular fitness, and lean body mass.1 Period.
Effect of supervised, periodized exercise training vs. self-directed training on lean body mass and other fitness variables in health club members. J. Strength Cond Res. 2014 Jul;28(7):1995-2006.
"I've been challenged. I've exceeded what I thought were my capabilities. I'm stronger now than I've ever been. I've never felt better."
Do things you never thought possible. Run that race. Fit into clothes you love. Get ready for that big day. Feel stronger and healthier than ever.
"I love the personalization I get with each workout. My trainer is flexible to work with and welcomed me at my level of fitness so I didn't feel intimidated. But my trainer also pushes me farther than I ever thought I could go."
The right personal trainer will observe where you're at and take you where you want to be with a tailor made plan to help you to achieve your goals based on your body and your lifestyle.
"I was educated on the value of proper form and technique and couldn't have gotten to the point I'm at without personal training."
Personal trainers specialize in the sweet spot between knowing your limitations and pushing you to the next level. You will always be improving and focusing on thoughtful training as a means of staying injury-free.
"Every workout is a little bit different so my body and brain don't have time to dread what's coming! It's fun and interesting and, most importantly, super effective and efficient."
We know what physical fitness is about more than a workout. In order to see the results, consistency is key. A trainer will keep your workouts fun and challenging so that you stay motivated to achieve your goals.

I left the world of Big 4 public accounting to pursue my passion in life - helping you become the healthiest, most energetic version of YOU. I love to see clients smile, reach their goals, and implement long-term solutions.
I also offer nutrition, stress-management, and sleep-management techniques ("bio-hacks") to address the lifestyle needs and concerns of each of my clients. I can work with you to develop meal plans, help grocery shop, or offer in-home cooking demonstrations.
Personally, I love to train in different modalities every week. From strength training in unconventional ways with kettlebells to working on balance, yoga, climbing skills and handstands, it's much harder to get stagnant with your training! I like to help clients fall back in love with a healthy lifestyle, or help them develop one for the very first time. I promise it's worth it!
I took an interest in lifting weights at a young age, with no guidance except my own research. Since it was the late 90's, information was scarce and this led to many injuries. I got into becoming a personal trainer so people looking to better themselves wouldn't have to make the same mistakes and learn the hard way as I did.
I take a hands on, analytical approach and practice what I preach. My clients always know how to do exercises and why they are doing them. I don't yell, but rather guide and encourage. Strength training is my passion, and I willingly educate myself daily in between clients.
I began my own fitness journey several years ago as an overweight and unhappy individual. I was going through the motions of life and lacked passion in every area. I found life in fitness and I haven't looked back! I have lost over 80 lbs. and 20% body fat since I made my lifestyle change. I am here to share my knowledge and inspire YOU!
I believe in a fluid methodology that lends itself to the particular needs of each client. Learning them as they learn themselves and providing education around the experience.
I grew up as an overweight, self-conscious child. When I started lifting for sports, I found a fascination with the possibilities fitness could open up for me. Between my junior and senior years of high school, I lost over 90 pounds while dramatically increasing strength, setting a few state powerlifting records along the way. The new feelings of confidence and overall positivity I felt were amazing and I wanted to share them with everyone. I knew that I could not have done these things without the help of mentors and trainers, so I seek to be that guide for others.
I've trained a wide variety of clients and goals, from seniors fitness classes to body-weight only training to strength and conditioning training. Although the clients may differ one things remain the same: the belief and backing that anyone, regardless of circumstance, can do things previously thought impossible through hard work and dedication. Transformations and goals are tough and need extra encouraging sometimes! I will always push you beyond your limits and provide a constant driving reminder that you can accomplish great things. I have helped individuals lose 30 pounds of fat, gain muscle, fix problems with loose skin, get strong, and train for their first 5k! As your coach and trainer I promise to give you the best personalized program to get you exactly what you desire.
My training approach aims to teach people to move the body safely, efficiently and effectively, allowing them to engage in the activities that make life enjoyable by optimizing the body’s capabilities. With a physical therapy background, I believe that it's important for people to move well, before they move more. This means the focus early on is ensuring proper technique and form before load and speed are added. The first session is a movement and fitness assessment that allows me to find the individual's strengths and weaknesses, and helps properly design the training program. This allows for safe fitness progression without risk of injury. Programs will be tailored to the individual's specific activity goals
I believe that nothing is more important than taking care of our health. No matter your body type, we were given these amazing machines, our bodies, and with proper care, we can keep them running smoothly our entire lives. For me, that care begins with fitness and nutrition. I began dancing at the age of 5 and have been a dance and exercise enthusiast my entire life. I wholeheartedly believe that anyone can enjoy the benefits of fitness at any age, and I pay close attention to clients to understand their particular strengths and challenges. My focus is on form and safe practice and I customize my approach to each client’s anatomy and conditions and modify exercises as needed. The key is to cross train and find things you enjoy to stay active and in shape. I became a personal trainer to help others become or continue to be active and take pride in their bodies. So much of living is feeling good about yourself and while I am not easy as a coach, I am great at cheering my clients on and helping them to adopt a lifestyle of exercise and healthy eating so they can be and feel their best.
My mission is to empower you to create a sustainable lifestyle full of balance and healthy choices. I am an avid runner and cyclist who has completed many marathons. I love working to make people stronger and feel great about themselves. No two people are alike, therefore each individual’s program is as unique as their goals. I tailor my programs for you to ensure that it is enjoyable enough to motivate you to do it, and challenging enough to produce the results you want. Together, I work with you to develop a program to meet your goals and address areas for improvement. I like to learn about a client, their interests, what they enjoy, what motivates them. I will cater the day to day plans to that.
I am a teacher at heart with over 6 years of educational experience. If someone learns why a move is important they have a higher chance of repeating it on their own. I want all my clients to learn why they are doing what they are doing and embrace this new knowledge. I strive to be considered more of a coach and accountability mentor.
I will mostly work on the whole body through a combination of circuit training and tempo training (unless otherwise discussed based on goals). Every workout will be different and varied based on skill level. The variations of exercises will grow with your skills! I do this through a variety of mediums depending on your space and equipment and love to use playgrounds during warm weather months. I also have expertise at improving athletic power and can tailor training plans for specific races, power, strength or marathons.
Fatime graduated from Iowa State University with a BS in exercise science. Prior to exercise science Fatime was also a pre-physical therapy student. Fatime has had opportunities to work in sports rehabilitation, outpatient rehabilitation and pediatric rehabilitation. Physical therapy experience has made her love for personal training and helping others a top priority. She is excited to help you achieve your fitness goals.
To give people the knowledge on how to live a fit life style by teaching the fundamentals of healthy living and exercise.
My work with you will help you get the results. I will provide you with both the specific knowledge and physical experience necessary for reaching your strength, fitness, and weight loss goals. By the end of our first session, you will immediately begin to notice improvement.
Before any personal trainer loads you up with weights to strength train, your body must be prepared to work towards functional performance that allows correct form using only body weight. Putting an extra load on without an awareness of your muscle imbalances will only cement the dysfunctional movement.
I train people like I would like to be treated! I give them a push but I don't scream! I understand how to push people past what they think they are capable of without pissing them off but still maintaining ambition to succeed!
Finishing your first marathon, half marathon or 5K can be one of the greatest experiences and accomplishments of your life. The road to this accomplishment can be challenging and can often be derailed by injury. Marathons, half-marathons, 5Ks and other extreme endurance sports require higher volumes of training that can often aggravate pre-existing postural and muscular imbalances. Fortunately, these injuries can often be prevented through a personalized, proactive muscular endurance, strengthening and flexibility program that works in concert with your cardiovascular training to help you arrive at the start line both fit and injury-free. Each program includes: - regular strength, flexibility and balance training sessions - endurance training program design, monitoring and adjustment as needed - nutrition guidance for peak performance and/or weight loss Each program is tailored for the individual. Laurie Lasseter is uniquely qualified to work with you to create such a program and achieve your endurance event goals. With over 28 years of Fitness Industry experience and over 35 years of Endurance Running experience, completing 30 marathons (including 3 Boston Marathons and all 6 World Marathon Majors) and numerous other distance events, Laurie has used these methods to help clients achieve injury-free marathon completions, marathon time goals and Boston-Qualifying marathon efforts. Training injuries can often be prevented through a personalized, proactive muscular endurance, strengthening and flexibility program that works in concert with your cardiovascular training to help you arrive at the start line of your event both fit and injury-free.
I've also worked as a fitness and martial arts instructor in various health club and school environments. I infused various martial arts elements into his training style. My intrinsic approach has assisted many of my clients to have a healthier lifestyle, look better and improve their self-esteem.
