I began training with Laura December 2017. I have been impressed by Laura’s work ethic and sincere desire to help her clients meet their goals. Laura never misses an appointment and is always on time. I like to know that I can rely on her to be there because that motivates me to never miss my appointments. Laura is very personable, not judgmental at all, and always in good spirits. Laura has helped with weight training and with my overall fitness and health. It has been so much fun! I have had my strength and muscle size increase more than ever before! It is so nice to have a personal trainer that takes a huge interest in your goals. Laura stays constantly focused on your whole training session. I love that she is always getting the next machine or weights ready so that we can jump into the next set. Laura makes every minute of training count. Having a personal trainer is a way of life to me now. If you are committed as much as she is, having Laura on your side as a personal trainer will reap big rewards for you.May 6, 2018Verified
I just had a consultation with Laura so far, but she was my favorite trainer that I met with doing consultations with people in the Portland area off of thumbtack. I'm looking forward to working with her.Jan 21, 2019Verified
HIGHLY RECOMMEND! As a newbie, Laura has made training approachable, interesting, and enjoyable. She is incredibly kind, understanding and intuitive. It is very clear her work is a passion and she deeply cares about helping others unlock their potential. She is available and responsive all the time. She was gracious enough to work with me to find a rate that fit my budget and schedule. I feel very fortunate to have met such a strong, empowering individual. Many thanks to Laura for being awesome!Jan 7, 2019Verified
I have only started working with Laura a few weeks ago but am really excited to keep going. As someone who came into training with absolutely no fitness background, I was nervous. But Laura emphasizes your strengths and has an effortless way of empowered communication that guides you through the process. Before this, I have not found any kind of fitness/physical activities that I enjoyed but I actually get excited to come back and train with Laura every week. It's hard but so worth it!Oct 25, 2018Verified
Had only 2 sessions with her and then she never contacted me back and I was looking forwarded to working with her. I was willing to go to her location so that would be easier for us, but she preferred to come to me ( I guess more cash?) My fiance and I got in a car crash, just told her to wait until I get back on my feet so I could pay for my sessions but never contacted me back. It's a shame, because I had all this cash dedicated to my journey to lose weight including supplements and trainers :(Nov 17, 2017VerifiedWeight Loss by Laura's reply
Hey Danielle, you said you had to get back on your feet and then I️ never hear back from you! Hope everything is going well and you find what your looking for!:)
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?This is negotiable. I have a set rate however I care more about results and you as a client and I'm willing to come to a price that works for us both. Sliding scale:)
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Every client is different. Knowing how to assess someone strengths weaknesses and goals and coming up with a customized plan is key. cookie cutter workouts will not work for people trying to achieve specific goals with different body types.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?NASM certified. CPR certified. also compete in body competitions.
