About Laura:  

 

As a personal trainer, instructor and creative confidence coach my aims are to use my skills, passion and extensive subject knowledge to help you achieve your goals, whether they are by individual/group training sessions or workshops.  I believe that by fusing my passion for fitness and the arts I can help you to use your mind and body to reach your goals, maintain them and set and achieve new goals as you grow in confidence.

 

I will provide you with a toolkit of techniques and skills which promote confidence and healthy living, to use not only during training sessions/workshops but also to take away to use in your day to day life.  I truly believe it is possible for people to achieve their goals, and I believe that I can help you to make these changes with my positive and enthusiastic attitude, by being tuned in to individuals’ needs and by working with the whole person, body and mind.
