My name is Laurie (not Lori). To my family and closest friends, I am LaLa. I graduated from Mississippi State University with my bachelor of science in kinesiology. I am a certified personal fitness trainer through AFAA, a certified cycle instructor through ISMA/AAAI, and I have experience teaching tabata classes and bootcamp-style classes. I am an Advocare distributor. I enjoy running events from 5k’s to half marathons to Spartans. I trained and competed in the martial art of Brazilian JiuJitsu for almost two years while in college. Using my background and experience, I aspire to empower and inspire others to become the best that they can be; to break away from mediocrity and discover something greater within themselves by pushing their physical limits and reaching their fitness goals.
