    Laurie teaches, encourages, and supports the group in every way possible. Focusing on the whole self - body, soul and spirit- brings healing on many levels! This is not just a job for Laurie or just what she's passionate about, it's her purpose in life-to make a difference in people's lives. She does it with compassion for others, with strength AND gentleness!

    Laurie is an amazing teacher and coach! Her past experience with being overweight and depressed herself, are both inspirational and motivating. Laurie's wealth of knowledge about the components of getting healthy physically, emotionally, and spiritually, make her an extremely well-rounded and qualified coach, teacher and encourager. I give Laurie my highest endorsement! I look forward to the next opportunity to work with Laurie again.

    I have attended several groups classes with Laurie and would do so again. I learned how to take care of myself, physically, mentally and spiritually. It has been nearly four years since my first class and my entire family now eats healthier and we all are in regular exercise routines because Laurie taught me how to make lasting lifestyle changes. Highly recommend any program Laurie offers!

    I've had Laurie as my personal trainer several years and would not want anyone else but her. She knows how to motivate and push you in a supportive and encouraging manner. I would not have the strength and confidence I do today without her.

    I've trained with Laurie in the past. She takes a personal interest in your health and well being. She is an excellent motivator and very knowledgeable about health & fitness. I, personally, saw results in a toned body, improved blood pressure and over all improved attitude toward life.

    I was never in any doubt that Laurie was walking my journey alongside me. This trainer has a lot of knowledge, high level expertise, thoughtful advice but most of all EMPATHY. I have seen excellent and lasting results having spent time with Laurie. If you are truly ready to see changes in your life, then Laurie is definitely your choice of trainer. Her authentic faith & encouraging spirit will have you motivated to do things you never thought you could.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
The first step in a client intake meeting where I will interview you and you will interview me to see if we will be a good fit. I will assess your health through NASM questioner forms and a series of health questions.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I lost 90 pounds and have kept it off for 12 years. So many people asked me how I did it that I decided to get the most difficult certification available to personal trainers and began helping others get healthy as well.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I provide Personal Training services, offer FIT Camps, Group Fitness Classes, Wellness Classes, Pantry Makeovers, Grocery Shopping Tours and General Nutrition and Cooking Classes. I don't just want to brag about fat people I make skinny, I want to help unhealthy people find wellness, confidence and the tools they need for long term weight loss so they can feel sucessful to go out and fulfill their passion!
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Mitzi White is a recent client that I was contracted by ABC Extreme Weight Loss. I worked with Mitzi for 9 months in 2014-15. She lost a total of 114 pounds.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
First and formost only hire a CERTIFIED personal trainer. Ask to see their certificate. Ask if they have insurance. Ask if you can do 1-3 sessions to see if they are a good fit for you. If they only want to sell packages of 20-30 sessions move on to someone new. Look for a trainer who has skills that extend beyond walking around with a clipboard. Never hire a trainer that you observe taking calls or texting while working with clients - unprofessional!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Are you licensed? Do you have insurance? What is your experience? How long have you been a personal trainer? Tell me a little bit about your past and current clients.
