Laura

“My motto in life, of which I taught my pre-schoolers and applies to my classes and training now, is you never say I can’t, you always say, I’ll try my best! For the only way to know if you can is to try.”

Although she grew up taking dance, playing softball, soccer, volleyball, basketball, and running track, it wasn’t until Laura joined BBP that her inner athlete truly came out. Her love of helping others obtain their fitness goals inspired her to resign from her 9-year career as a public school teacher.
