I am a person who really enjoys working out, but has trouble taking that first step of showing up. I decided to reward myself with six plus months of personal training sessions with Laraine. I thoroughly enjoyed every session. I had been experiencing pain in both my feet for over two years (broken toe joint in one and plantar fasciatis in the other). I was worried there just wouldn’t be enough exercises I could do. Laraine has a gift for finding what exercises and workouts fit based on exactly where you are, but push you just the right amount. She provides so much variety--her knowledge seems endless. She was fully prepared for every session with a detailed plan just for me. If any activity ever hurt my feet, she quickly substituted an alternative. After about 3 months of BOSU and core strength training with Laraine, both of my feet were completely pain free in for the first time in ages. Laraine is not one of the “my way or the highway” type of trainers. She listened to every ounce of feedback I game her, and understood and incorporated every request I made. One of my favorite memories was when she (at the very last minute) changed my workout from an individual workout to a Valentine’s partner workout with my teenage daughter who was home on a random school holiday. Those teen bonding moments are priceless and hard to come by. Laraine “rocks” and Peachtree Corners, GA is not the same without her!

I religiously attended Laraine's BOSU Power (interval training) and Killer Kore classes at the Y in Norcross, Georgia for over two years. Her classes were great and she was always energetic, encouraging, and fun! I really liked the variety of her classes as she would mix up the exercises and bring in new ones on a regular basis. Her classes were definitely challenging, but not in a ridiculous way, and she provided modifications for newbies. As a result of her classes I always felt stronger and healthier. Laraine was super dependable, never missed a scheduled class, and was always early and prepared. I can tell you that ALL of her students back here at the Y in Georgia miss her!

Highly Recommended!!

Laraine is the BEST step and sculpt AND killer kore AND Spin fitness instructor I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. As a member at the YMCA in Norcross, GA for a number of years, what kept me coming back was her classes! Not only does she have an intriguing British accent, her upbeat personality, encouragement, and knowledge of exercise is seriously a winning combination. I was disappointed to hear that she had moved to Texas, but I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to participate in her classes. Her enthusiasm for exercise is definitely contagious, and I will carry that enthusiasm with me for the rest of my life!

Laraine is a fantastic instructor. She knows how to explain and how to motivate her students. I really liked her class because it is never boring. New challenge every time. By the end of the class you can be sure to get an extremely good workout because she knows the anatomy very well.

Laraine is an amazing instructor, bottom line! I am a cycle instructor at the Fowler YMCA and was lucky enough to work with Laraine. Her cycle classes are always fun, well planned out and challenging rides. Her knowledge of functional movement coupled with her ability to give excellent instruction makes her a phenomenal instructor. Music is always a key part of a cycle class and Laraine understands that; something members truly value! I was lucky enough to work with Laraine on a number of special event rides. Many people chose to participate in these fundraisers primarily to support and ride with Laraine. Laraine has my full professional support and recommendation...Georgia's loss is Texas' gain!

I was fortunate enough to participate in Laraine’s spin classes at our local YMCA, and I can say without hesitation that she is the best! It was obvious that she put a lot of thought and preparation into each class. She skillfully led us through a vey-well planned out routine that consistently pushed me to my limits. Her music is great, her energy is infectious, and she made burning a ton of calories fun! I would highly recommend her.

Laraine Levin is one of those amazing people who have the ability to motivate you into a better you. I started with taking her Killer Kore class and was instantly addicted! She has the ability to keep you going and going while all the time verbalizing how your alignment should be so you have no injuries while participating. I soon started also taking her step/sculpt class and once again, never looked back. If anyone ever has the chance to learn from her, I highly recommend it.

I first met Laraine at a Step N' Sculpt class in the Summer of 2012. My daughter was home for the summer and taking numerous classes at the YMCA. She kept talking about Laraine's class and that it was such a great work out. She actually convinced me to go with her a couple of times before she went back to college. When she was saying her final goodbye before heading off to Fall Semester, Laraine looked at me and said, "you are going to continue aren't you?" Reluctantly I said "maybe" and she was so assuring that I could do it that I DID continue and am STILL in the Step N' Sculpt class only with a new instructor. Laraine is ever so positive and knowledgeable. She is the reason I fell in love with Step N' Sculpt! She is always prepared, always has energy, always calls the next step in advance so everyone can keep together! She offers to stay after class if you were having difficulty with any moves. Just goes the step beyond. Genuinely cares! And the added bonus, is her great accent!

I have taken Laraine's Killer Kore class numerous times and always leave sore and happy. She offers an ongoing variety of exercises keeping the class from ever being repetitive and always challenging different muscle groups. She is encouraging and enthusiastic and provides options for advanced participants as well as for beginners. She is also a model of fitness and clearly practices what she preaches.

Bottom line - AWESOME!
