Laura Teer1 Review
Having lost 190 pounds myself, I understand on a very personal level, the struggles and frustrations that come with weight loss. My journey to better health has made me passionate about helping others who want to do the same, but are unsure how to go about it. I know exactly how it feels to be unhappy with your body, to hate looking in the mirror because of what reflects back at you and I'm here to tell you, it doesn't have to be like that anymore. YOU can make the changes necessary to start living a healthier, and ultimately, happier life. I believe that knowledge is power and, as such, I am committed to teaching you the information you will need to improve not only your health, but your quality of life. Most trainers simply show their clients how to workout, and that's it. I'll teach you how to do each exercise, teach you what muscles you're using and how you're benefiting from it. I'll teach you about macronutrients and their roles in your nutritional intake as well as help you find your optimal ratios to maximize your results. The bottom line is that everyone is unique, there is no "one size fits all" workout program. I will develop a program solely for you, based on your goals, genetics, exercise and nutrition history as well as any bone, joint or muscular injuries (past or present). Through educating, encouraging and holding you accountable with regularly scheduled measurements, I will assist you in reaching your fitness goals. Change is possible, and I'd be more than happy to teach you how to achieve it. Since losing the weight and getting fit myself, I cannot even express in words how grateful I am that I made the change when I did. My only regret is that I didn't do something sooner. So do yourself a favor, take control of your life back. You'll be glad you did.
My favorite client story
I have many “favorites”, actually. Like Ashley, who was so skeptical of virtual training at first she insisted we speak on the phone so she could quiz me. Of course I agreed and we set a time to speak. She started out with question after question about virtual training and how it works, how could it possibly be effective? I explained it all to her and then she started with the questions on her own fitness journey. She explained what she had been doing and that she was frustrated with the plateau she had experienced for several months before watching the scale start to creep upward. How could this be happening when she was working so hard? And to be fair, she was working hard, but she wasn’t working in the way that her body needed her to. Once I explained it to her she agreed to give virtual training a try. We’ve been together for almost a year now and we’re currently training for her picture perfect wedding in April??
My favorite exercise
I don’t have just one favorite exercise, but I do enjoy leg day????
My favorite quote
When nothing changes, nothing changes. You gotta shake things up!
My training philosophy
Functional training; meaning that what we do together in our sessions should transfer to strength, endurance and/or flexibility in your everyday life. Your workouts should equal payouts in real life.
My training experience
I’ve worked in multiple gyms and studios, done one-on-one training, buddy training, taught group classes, boot camps and small group training as well. I currently train out of a private studio, which my clients really enjoy.

Laura has been my trainer for a year now and in that time I feel like I have had a total transformation. I have lost 20% of my body weight, gone from unhealthy to normal in all major health indicators (from being pre diabetic to normal just to name one), shaved 5 minutes of my best mile time and feel confident enough to start a kick boxing class something I have always wanted to do - but never felt strong enough to participate in. Laura completely personalizes every workout to you - how you are feeling that day, what your goals are and what will make you healthier overall. If you are ready to put in the work and become the you have always wanted to be, Laura is an excellent coach that will be there to guide you to success.
