Laurie has been my trainer for almost 6 months. When I first found Stronger Fitness, I was very apprehensive and nervous – I have been overweight for years and really lacked the confidence to change my habits.
When I first met Laurie she took the time to hear my concerns but she quickly turned the concerns into goals. The confidence I lacked (and still do) she bounces back with positive encouragement. Laurie not only has allowed me to build my personal confidence but has also fashioned workouts that push my personal limits.
A large part of my motivation to continue to see Laurie as a personal trainer is because I know I can rely on her to push me when I feel like I am holding myself back. I know she has my best interest at heart and she sincerely wants me to succeed. I really believe that Laurie saved me from me: she has opened my eyes to a better version of myself when I really needed to see the good that I can accomplish with dedication and confidence.
“Progress, not perfection” is her motto and she reassures me every meeting that I am closer to my goals and to not be so hard on myself. I honestly never had someone so dedicated to cheer me on – even on the hardest days I leave feeling good about myself.
I am far from my goals but the path is not as long as it once was. I look forward to progressing with Laurie as my trainer and embracing the lifestyle changes she has brought into my life.
