Convenient, Fun Results!

I began online training with Laura a few months before my wedding because I wasn't seeing results with my own workouts. Laura made the whole process convenient, fun, and relatively painless! I was able to seamlessly fit the workouts into my crazy wedding planning schedule. By the time the big day was here, I felt so much more comfortable showing my newly toned back and arms! Thank you, Laura!

Strong and Balanced Pregnancy!

“I had my first son when I was 21 years old
and I had no grasp of what true health and wellness meant. I thought
hours of cardio and limiting calories was the key to health and fitness.
Now at almost 28 years old, I can’t thank Laura enough for guiding me
along the path to wellness and balance in life because I couldn’t
imagine feeling so strong and balanced leading up to and throughout my
second pregnancy. I’ve continued to train with her throughout these last
8 months of my pregnancy and I cannot wait to see how she guides me
through the next chapter of my wellness journey postpartum!” #34weekspregnant with both baby boys!

Laura is a body sculpting artist!

Laura is amazing! She has been able to transform my body not once, but TWICE now! I have never felt more strong and healthy in my life! She seriously is a body sculpting artist! 

Confident on that gym floor, finally!!!

Reach out to her now!! Laura helped me change my eating habits for the better when I was 19 years old, but it took me until age 30 to reach out to her for her personal training. She's the real deal. I saw it as she cranked our the hardest workouts in our super tiny dorm room and have followed her journey since! I've been training with her for over 6 months now and the overall changes have been exactly what I needed. I've lost inches and kept them off. Her guidance has encouraged me to pursue the lifestyle I've always wanted of eating mainly whole foods. There has been an increase in confidence and self love that has allowed me to break out of comfort zones both in the gym and in my personal life. I can't thank her enough for the creative workouts, kind words, and encouraging environment she has set up through her app! The list doesn't end. Thank you so much, L!

The Strongest I've Ever Been - Pregnant!!

I began training with Laura as my husband and I were trying to conceive. I knew I would need help in working out throughout my pregnancy - emotionally, mentally and physically. About one month into training, I found out I was pregnant, and Laura immediately began to tailor my training regimen as well as give me helpful tips on my diet. I am now 39 1/2 weeks and am still going to the gym at least 3x a week with Laura's workouts. I never thought I would be squatting and doing deadifts this far along and I am amazed at my strength. I know I will be relying on Laura postpartum to get me back into shape as well. Thank you so much Laura and #teamlrgrace for your guidance and encouragement. I can't wait to work towards my fitness goals again once this baby makes his or her debut :)

Emotionally and Physically at my BEST!

My progress has been emotional and mental. I think what surprised me the most is that I've discovered an inner motivation that I didn't know was there. I can't believe I willingly get up at 5 am and go to the gym --that has never been me until now. For my entire life, I have always been a person with no natural athletic ability, so I never thought I would be able to become strong and healthy. It has given me such overall confidence, and I feel like I can conquer anything! People have started to notice my new self, and that's fun :)

Postpartum and the Best Version of Myself

For the first time, I feel like I'm finally  seeing results. I felt the changes last month, but it is when I see my reflection that I get even more motivated! Not only am I starting to feel like "me" again, but I feel like I am on a direct path to be the best version of myself :) Thanks for helping me get back in shape and feeling awesome postpartum.

Love the app!

I love the app! What a great set up. It was great at the gym. I didn't realize how easy/nice it would be to have the workout right there and with the videos. 

Why didn't I start sooner?!

"I feel amazing, thank you so much for everything. My only regret is to not have started sooner.

Results I've Always Wanted!

"I've never been able to get the results I've wanted like this before. I'm in love with your program and approach to heath and fitness."

My Journey Brought Tears to my Eyes

"When I sent progress photos pics to Laura this morning I was in no way prepared to see this much of a difference in 6 months. It literally brought tears to my eyes because I didn't realize how much I've changed since January. Sometimes we get so hard on ourselves we forget how far we've come and how much we've achieved. I've never felt so strong, energized and in tune with my body. Six months of training with Laura has surpassed what I've tried to do on my own for years. She's truly amazing and the support system that comes with training with her is the cherry on top. 

*One year update: I started training with Laura to lose some extra inches for my upcoming wedding, and what I got out of it was so much more than that. Laura's style of training was addressing fitness as a whole, not just losing weight. She taught me to live life balanced. I don't deprive myself of a drink here and there and I wasn't expected to follow any crazy diet plan, but stick to real, whole foods and my body would thank me in return. That training style is something I never realized would work for me. I was convinced I needed more hours of cardio in the gym to see any kind of toning, but I couldn't have been more wrong (and happy about it haha-solo not a fan of running.) And the cherry on top, the support system that comes built-in with Laura's training is incredible. Not only is she incredibly encouraging and supportive, the connection I've made with the other girls training with her is so helpful along our fitness journeys. I definitely looked to that system on days I had no motivation and I owe all of my progress to her training style and the amazing group of like-minded women she brings together."

Results I've Never Been to Achieve

"The day of my first workout with Laura she told me, "My clients see results." Not to say I was doubtful, but I had a trainer before and didn't get into the kind of shape that I'd hoped, so I was a little skeptical. From the beginning, Laura pushed me hard and had me doing challenging exercises that I never would have had the knowledge or drive to do on my own. With her help, I got into the best shape of my life. That's an incredible accomplishment on its own, but her coaching didn't just end when I left the gym. Her advice into my meal plan provided the input I needed to make healthy choices on my own. Bottom line, she didn't overstate her promise from our very first meeting, I got the results I'd never been able to achieve on my own or with another trainer."  

Best Shape of my Life!

"I started training with Laura four years ago, and she got me in the best shape of my life post college at age 22. I stopped training thinking maintaining my newly toned body was perfectly doable. Life caught up with me and I was not keeping up with my workouts. I must say, training did keep me accountable for committing to my goals. Slowly but surely I was gaining weight, and I didn't want to face it. Then I saw the numbers on the scale. Now at 26, I knew I had to fix those numbers, and not buy any more new clothes. I reached out to Laura for round 2 of training. Within only a few months, Laura has helped me shed 19 inches of fat off of me, and I am down 13 pounds! I now fit into clothes I have not fit comfortably into in years. I have more energy and confidence, and my friends and family all have noticed! She has taught me a new lifestyle complete with new eating habits, and I surely never want to go back!

Cardiologist Practicing what I Preach!

“ As a cardiologist, I believe that Healthy Living is a Lifestyle. I can't escape the stresses at work but I incorporate diet and exercise in my daily calendar. After all, it is only fair that I live by the habits that I preach to my patients.​ ​ I wasn't just looking for a personal trainer, I wanted a personal fitness trainer. Laura fuses diet with training. One could not be successful without the other. She makes herself available to constantly encourage & cheer you on when you feel like giving in to temptation. I am active and have always exercise with light weights, yoga & jogging. However, the short time I spent working with Laura have brought out the contours of muscles that I did not even know I had! Her rigorous weight training circuits are effective in toning & strengthening. Despite my erratic schedule, she makes our sessions flexible so that we are able to fit the required number of sessions each week.​ ​ The nature of my work place me at the front lines of witnessing the repercussions of poor dietary & lifestyle habits on the body. We have one body and it's our responsibility to take care of it. Working with a fitness trainer is an investment that will be well worth it over the lifetime. Prevention is always better than cure. Laura leads by example and that gives me even more confidence in her."

Most Sculpted My Body Has Ever Been!

“ I came to Laura as a bride-to-be six months before my wedding and it was the best decision I could have made. I was doubtful that I would be able to change my body that much but I was wrong! Every session, Laura would start me off with a quick warm up and we’d get started with a circuit of weight training. My arms have never been so sculpted. I lost inches and toned up all around…she really kept me focused and supported me in my goals. Laura really helped me to improve my body as a whole with her overall approach on personal training and tips on healthy eating. I have never looked better or felt stronger. My wedding day was perfect and she helped make it that way. I felt great!!”

Over 50-Best Shape of my Life!

“ I worked with Laura for 18 months and came out on the other end in the best shape of my life. I’m not the typical client -- I’m over 50. But Laura was a terrific motivator and worked with me at my home two or three times each week to get me on track. Weight lifting, jogging, working arms and legs -- it was all part of the routine. Laura is tough but compassionate. She knows her stuff and didn’t let me dally when I was feeling lazy. I had to leave her as we moved out of Chicago, and I still miss her terribly a year later! When I left Laura, I looked better, my clothes fit better and, most important of all, I felt better than I had in years. I would highly recommend her to anyone. "

I Will Always Be Grateful

Laura has helped encourage me to improve my life and for that I will always be grateful. After decades of bad habits and no exercise I was very apprehensive about starting. With her positive and encouraging words, friendly smile and expert instruction, my fears quickly dissolved. Thanks to Laura, I am on a path of fitness that will continue and I humbly submit my highest gratitude! Laura rocks!

Laura Will Always Go The Extra Mile

“ I would recommend Laura's personal training to anyone that is looking for real results! Laura's style is very hands on. She is not your typical trainer, she will go the extra mile for her clients making sure you have all the information you need to be successful. 

The best thing that helped me was that she created a personalized diet plan for my lifestyle and always took the time to answer questions at any time. I don't know of any other personal trainer that is that involved in their client's goals. You can always count on her to help you with nutrition questions and keep you motivated!  With Laura you will have fun while working out, and you will also learn a great deal. It is because of her that I have lost over 8 inches all around! Laura is personable, very knowledgeable and really cares about her clients. I couldn't be more happier with my results and I'm just starting! 

This is a great investment if you are ready to take charge of your fitness and see the fat melt."

5' lost 12+ inches!

“ I came to Laura after I had my 2nd baby. I worked with her for about 3 months to lose my extra weight. She measured me once a month to keep me on track and I lost 12 1/4 inches all over my body. Laura melted away 4 inches off my hips and 3 1/2 inches off my waist. She helped me look and feel like a new me! ”

True Desire to See You Succeed

“ After unsuccessfully trying for a year and a half to get back into shape on my own after having my first child and c-section, I reluctantly decided to give a personal trainer a try. I say "reluctant" because I have had them before. But never like this. Laura not only assesses your goals, but looks at you holistically-exercise, nutrition and your day in-and-outs that could be sabotaging your climb toward your goal. She held me completely accountable, not just for showing up, but for what I ate since we saw each other last, for exercise I did while not on her watch, and discussions of general feelings and thoughts about my progress. It may sound harsh, but if you are like me, I needed someone strong-willed to pull me through to  my goal. Other trainers would go through the motions, but I felt like Laura was looking over me when I left and that helped me commit to the gym on my own and make better choices. She recommended diet changes, ensured I was getting enough protein, and gave me modified exercises I could do at home to strengthen my weaker areas. That is what I love about Laura--her true desire to see you succeed. I was amazed how quickly I started to change with this support and really feeling like we were in it together. Hire Laura if you really want to see results because it is hard and exhausting physically and emotionally, but Laura will be there to see you through. The results she will help you achieve are amazing! I never came close with any other trainers, and that was when I was already in decent shape. Working with Laura, I lost 9.5 inches from my body in just 3 months. Not only am I proud of the new shape she helped me achieve, but how much stronger I am as well. Thank you Laura!!! ”
