“Laura is the best fitness trainer I’ve ever had.

She constantly changes things up, so our workouts never get old. I love that we can work out anywhere and especially love going to the park and using our “natural” surroundings to get a full body work out (benches, steps, ledges, etc.). Laura gently encourages me to push myself harder than I ever could if I tried to do this on my own. I highly recommend her!”
