Laura’s passion for teaching and training is unequivocal as is the desire to share it with others. Exercise is about more than developing strong muscles; exercise invokes the help of everything from your smallest cell in your brain to build your mental and physical strength. Though movement our systems are stimulated and strengthened, improving the tone and quality of our overall well-being. Exercise does not come in a one size fits all package, each person has their ideal routine that makes them fulfilled. Exercise should be fun as well as challenging with the long term goal of improving your health and happiness.
