Personal Trainer / Yoga Instructor
Lara specializes in guiding women of all ages and backgrounds to feel strong and awesome in their bodies. Her training style focuses on making movement fun and efficient, and she enjoys incorporating both the strengthening techniques of weight training and the functional mobility of her yoga and aerial practice into training sessions.
She has a passion for helping her clients feel like the best version of themselves, and has successfully guided clients to achieve personal bests on their lifts, complete a set of perfect push-ups for the very first time, and implement proper breathing techniques and mindfulness tools in their workouts and beyond. Lara thinks of physical strength as an empowerment tool, and hopes that her clients come away from each session feeling more capable of anything life can throw at them.
Lara has competed in both powerlifting and pole dancing, and currently trains as an amateur aerialist, although she still loves lifting heavy things. Her certifications include: Girls Gone Strong Level 1 Coach; 200HR yoga teacher; NASM personal trainer. She is working to become a Pre/Postnatal Coach through the Girls Gone Strong Academy.
