CrossFit Level 1 Trainer
Being active was always important to Laurie, but her love of fitness really took off once she started a family. From running, to Pilates, weight training, and group fitness classes, she felt like she had tried it all throughout the years. It wasn’t until being introduced to CrossFit in 2013, that she found something that she really became passionate about. After several weeks of testing the waters through a boot camp style class, she took the plunge and never turned back. Laurie was immediately hooked on all of the physical and mental challenges a CrossFit workout brings, the friendly competition, and the community that has been built!
Laurie was born and raised in Port Allegany, Pennsylvania, and made the move south following college at Slippery Rock University. The warm weather, and a teaching career were what helped make North Carolina her new home. She resides in Apex with her husband Gordon, daughters Laney and Brooklyn, son Adam, and pug Higgins. When not at the gym, Laurie is spending time with her family, chasing babies, boating, reading, and entertaining friends with Gordon’s cooking.
CrossFit brings out Laurie’s love of teaching, and energetic personality! Her love of CrossFit drives a coaching style that enhances flexibility, impact, and adaptability. If she’s not sharing her passion of CrossFit while she’s coaching, you will find her as your biggest cheerleader on the sidelines!
