Lara has been dancing for more than 40 years. She began her training in classical ballet at The Boston Ballet, followed by The Connecticut Ballet, and The New Haven Ballet. In addition, Lara has been practicing Pilates and the Lotte Berk method for the past decade. Lara combined these disciplines into a trademarked class, YoLarates.
After realizing the need for a time efficient strength training class for seniors, Lara developed Boomers & Beyond Body Camp, a 30-minute circuit training class for active mature adults.

    Lara is beyond knowledgeable regarding fitness and health yet always continuing her education and awareness so she can provide the best options for her clients. She will try things herself and is confident in her products that she recommends because she actually used them and isn't just providing a sales pitch.

    She is vested in her clients success and never sees a disability.... she sees a new opportunity to excel and build confidence without restriction and celebrates the individual milestones of her clients.
    She reminds us that we are our own competition and to not compare to others but only to how far we have come.

    Lara is REAL. She has struggled. She has made the unhealthy choices in the past and succeeded. She supports her clients achieving their own successes as well as pushing them to reach and exceed their self imposed limits SMARTLY without injury.

    She also is enchanting, has a great smile and truly listens to her clients and makes sure she understands our needs individually.

    In addition to all that awesomeness Lara is continually evolving herself and an inspiration. She finds beauty in every thing and celebrates all achievements... even the ones we overlook and don't see. While I don't know what I did to deserve her friendship and support I am truly forever grateful.

    Your not paying her.... your investing in your future healthy self. ♡

    I found Lara through a friend, and wow am I so happy to have found her. She is an awesome personal training. I was able to work out hard with Lara, and feel great. She is so positive and works with you as an individual taking into consideration and issue you may have. If you are looking for a great personal training, look no more.

    I am so happy I found Lara! I joined her Zumba class last fall and found it alot of fun and a great workout. Because Lara is such a wonderful instructor and person, I also joined her Yolarates class which has helped me become more flexible and gain my balance which I never had before! I had a few personal training sessions as well with Lara to help me set up an exercise program I could do while working daily at my desk job which has been a life changer for me. She has so much knowledge on exercising and healthy eating and she has a unique ability to make it fun. Lara is the first person in many years to motivate me to exercise. I would recommend Lara to anyone!

    Lara is incredibly versatile in her personal training. She consistently challenged me to give my best efforts and encourages me along the way. I feel better and stronger from just once a week sessions. She is always available to talk about different foods and healthy eating habits. And she leads by example as well. She inspired me to quit smoking as well and feel great about it. I usually lift weights in the gym and I am on pretty good shape( so I thought ). Then I met Lara and realized I wasn't in as good shape as I thought. She has fixed that.
