In Laura’s words:
Someone asked me once what makes me different than other trainers? Because I have lived it! I know what it’s like to be on both extreme ends of fitness (and a million places in between!). I have struggled with my weight, hitting almost 200lbs, smoking, drinking and battling bulimia for close to 15 years to training like a maniac and entering in a fitness model competition. While the road has been rocky at times, my fitness journey has given me an amazing learning ground personally and professionally to develop the most fierce, fun and REALprograms for my chicks.
I want all women to realize how truly amazing, strong and fierce they are and the power they hold to make a true impact in this world. What is our goal? To create an amazing “chick army” of female health leaders to spread that healthy love across the world…and I know we can!!”
