Laura is a special education teacher and an L1 CrossFit trainer. She began her CrossFit journey in 2013 when she decided she needed a change from her sedentary lifestyle. With no athletic background and having never played a sport, Laura was not sure CrossFit would be the right fit for her. She decided to give it a try and has never turned back. From banded pull-ups to chest-to-bar to muscle ups, Laura quickly learned that CrossFit is not just a workout program, it is an outlet that will always push her forward, allowing her to grow and seek her personal best. In her free time, Laura coaches a 5k running program for her students, mentoring them in the importance of a healthy lifestyle. She also enjoys cooking, traveling, and DIY projects.
