NASM Certified Personal Trainer


Education: BS Kinesiology, Mississippi State University 2013 

Certifications: NASM Certified Personal Trainer 

Laurie graduated from Mississippi State University in 2013 with a BS in Kinesiology. She began training clients and leading group fitness classes immediately upon graduation obtaining her personal training certification. She knew then that she would never look for another career.

In 2016 Laurie took a leap of faith and moved herself to Pensacola, Florida to expand her fitness career, and further develop her professional skills. It was there that she met one of her most influential mentors, Lorenzo Aguilar. From him she learned more about movement as it pertains to pain relief and prevention, post rehabilitative strengthening, and myofascial release. To Laurie, fitness is more than just a profession, but a calling.

During her time in Pensacola, Laurie met her husband who was then stationed in the area. She made the move Norfolk, VA with him in February 2019. Laurie is excited to bring the knowledge, experience, and passion which she has acquired over the years to better meet the health and fitness needs of the Ghent Fit Norfolk Community!
