About our instructor: Laura Coleman
My journey in the fitness industry began 10 years ago as a group fitness instructor. I discovered I had a passion and talent in helping others transition into, achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle so I decided to take my education a step further and become a Certified Personal Trainer. Knowing that exercise and nutrition go hand in hand...I pursued a nutrition certification with Precision Nutrition. It all came together as my previous career was in the Culinary field.
In September 2015 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Needless to say this news rocked my world! I continued to teach and work with clients throughout my recovery...they were some of my biggest cheerleaders throughout my whole journey! As I did research about fitness during and after treatments and surgeries and sought advice from my doctors, I realized very quickly that resources and trainers were limited. I then decided to transition my training and education into cancer exercise fitness and became certified as a Cancer Exercise Specialist and Breast Cancer Recovery Specialist through CETI.
My mission is to help people with or recovering from cancer, exercise safely, effectively and with confidence! Whether exercise is new to your lifestyle or you are wanting to get back into the gym, we will work together to develop a program to fit your individual needs and goals!
I have been happily married to my best friend for 23 years and together we have 2 strong, smart, beautiful daughters. Their love and support is what got me through my cancer hiccup and continues to drive me!
