Congratulations on taking your first step into optimal wellness by looking into a personal trainer! I have over 13 years of experience and have worked with a large variety of clients with different goals. I help clients improve self-esteem, gain a positive outlook, muscle mass, knowledge for a lifetime, and, of course, lose weight.
My specialization is really the type of person I like to work with rather than a specific age or gender. I like to work with someone who is willing to learn. I am first, and foremost, a teacher. I tell you the reasons behind why we do certain things so you'll remember and apply them the rest of your life. I want someone willing to try new things whether it be exercise or foods! I love a good sense of humor and honesty. I also want someone who is interested in all-around health, not just physical. They are all tied together! And you have to be willing to work hard! My favorite clients are the ones who push hard, show up on time and consistently and do the work outside of our sessions together. These are all important qualities to have to get the most out of your sessions and for us to work well together.

Big thank you to Laura!!! Back in August I was looking for a trainer to help me reach an unusual goal. I told her I need to be healthy enough to donate a kidney to my sister in the near future. Sounds like a strange request and she probably thought I was nuts but Laura kept me focused and we reached our goal on March 19th. The surgery went well for both me and my sister. If you are looking for a trainer that goes above and beyond Laura is your person. She helped me with weight loss, strength training, cardio workouts, nutrition, how to prevent my aches and pains and learning all she could about kidney donation to help me. Thanks for all that you do for your clients!
You are a huge part of some great changes I have made in my life. Thank you for helping, supporting and encouraging me.
"I can't thank you enough. You've played such a major role in helping me find myself again!"
Thank you, thank you, thank you! For pushing me, cheering me on, for helping me improve the quality of my life! Most of all-thank you for your friendship!
Thank you for all your hard work and for being more than just a trainer. You have given me my life back. I finally feel like I can do it this time and that is because of you!
My heart doc agreed I can half my dose of cholesterol medication. Three months ago he agreed to let me drop one of the two I was on, but my numbers have been consistently good since. Whatever progress I have made, I have to give you the lion's share of credit!
Laura has motivated and supported me throughout this journey. I have never felt better and I am confident that this lifestyle change will stick!
I have never done weight training before and can really tell a difference with muscle toning and inches lost this time by working with Laura.
I am 53 years old and have had surgery on both of my knees. The exercises we do are appropriate for my age and physical condition. I feel stronger than I did 20 years ago.
Laura is very patient and does a great job of motivating without pushing too hard and adapting exercises for a variety of ability levels.
Get new clients. Change lives.
