About Laurie

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.


My favorite client story

I worked with a non-runner who was overweight and helped him lose 45 pounds and become a marathoner! The training also changed his life. As he puts it: "Laurie taught me to enjoy exercise and to make it part of my life. As a result of my running success and Laurie's encouragement, she made me actually look forward to exercise! She also taught me how to enjoy life more and not to be intimidated by the achievements of others and by setting goals and. achieving them."
