5.0 out of 5 Stars

    Two thumbs up and 5 stars for Coach Laura AND her wonderful new studio. I have been training with her and am so impressed by her knowledge and genuine interest in helping me improve my level of fitness. I am no spring chicken, with shoulder and knee issues. Laura has helped me regain mobility and strenghth over all, while adjusting my workout to accommodate these limitations. She sends emails of encouragement and "homework" reminders. Awesome!

    Coach Laura has been my trainer for over 4 years. When I first met Laura, she was supervising the trainers at a large national gym, and training members. I had just turned 60, and decided I should start working out. I was so incredibly lucky, that she assigned me to herself to train. After listening to me explain what I was looking for (gain weight, general health), and evaluating my current condition (poor), she asked if there was anything else, I wanted out of my training. I said that I had always wanted a bigger chest. Coach Laura then proceeded to train, coach and guide me in changing my body to what I wanted. I could only afford to see her every other week, but she gave me exercises to do on my own, in between. She even drew pictures to help me remember. Before too long, I had gained 10 pounds, and had to give away my shirts, and buy bigger ones. I was frankly amazed, at what I was able to do, with Laura as my trainer. In addition, she was always on time, always up and encouraging, and never got frustrated with me, even when I deserved it. After a year, she left the national gym, and went out on her own. Luckily, one of the gyms she worked out of, was close to where I live. If it wasn't, I would have taken the bus. But, her new studio is not open to the public. It's a studio designed and run, by one of the best trainers in the bay area, for trainers. Laura knows what a trainer wants, in a gym, to train clients. She not only opened this studio, as an excellent place for trainers to work with their clients, but also to have a place to work with her own clients. If you are looking for a place to train your clients, you can't do better! And, if you are looking for a trainer, you'd be lucky, to be able to work with Coach Laura! James McPherson

    I feel so fortunate to have found Laura. I have been trying to lose weight and get back into shape on my own. I was not succeeding until meeting Laura. She has helped me stay on track with both exercise and a healthy diet. She set manageable goals and encouraged me along the way. I feel I am getting stronger and healthier everyday. I know her help is working - as my boss walked up to me recently and said "wow you are really losing weight." I owe it to Laura!

    Laura is a wonderful trainer who will help you reach your goals and will never, ever let you quit. She combines an encouraging positive attitude with incredible creativity and an in depth knowledge of the human body. She is especially knowledgeable about rehabilitative exercises and has helped me immensely with neck and back pain. Her new fitness studio is gorgeous and you can definitely see Laura's attention to detail in every aspect. If you want healthy, certified personal training, this is the place to be.
