Laura’s ongoing interest in fitness and nutrition has been the driving force behind her decision to use her combined knowledge to help others achieve their fitness goals and ambitions.
One memorable comment was that 'Laura has the body of a 20 year old …' at that time Laura was 38. Now Laura is 45 and feeling better than ever!
