"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."
"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."
"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."
"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!
“ 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."
“ 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!!”
“ 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. "
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!
“ 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."
“ 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! ”
“ 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!!! ”
