Laura In Her Own Words

Every coach is “the” coach for someone or something. What’s your jam?

I love coaching middle-aged women. It’s a demographic that often puts their personal wellness second to their family and/or career. I love witnessing the holistic transformation that occurs when a woman begins to see herself as an athlete. It’s inspiring and empowering.

Tell us about your fitness journey!

I’ve been doing CrossFit for 12 years. I joined intending to lose the weight I’d gained during pregnancy and stayed because I loved getting stronger and better every day.

What’s on your go-to class playlists?

Changes on the daily! Unfortunately, no one seems to dig my penchant for 80’s bands like Journey and Chicago.

Let’s play local tour guide! If someone has 24 hours in St. Pete, where are you sending them?

Hop on a bike and ride! Museum of Fine Arts, Dalí Museum, Buya for gyoza and ramen, Wild Child for tasty apps, Grand Central Brewery, Three Daughters…

St. Pete’s amazing; the list is endless!

At a party, where can you be found?

It depends on how many drinks I’ve had. 😜 I can quickly go from holding up a wall to doing burpees on the dance floor.

What topics do you geek out on?

I’m a science nerd all the way. 🤓

And your family?

My husband, Charlie, and teenage sons are also 9’ers!
