Laura Wightman
has been a trainer for 28 years, and she loves what she does.  She is a wife, mother of four great kids, and grandma to eleven beautiful grandkids.  She got into training after she experienced first-hand what having a personal trainer did for her not only physically but emotionally.  She became her best self! Laura believes nothing is more satisfying than seeing a person become happier and healthier.  She continually keeps up on her education and industry trends, so she can give her clients the best and most efficient workouts to best suit their needs.  She loves to help clients succeed and accomplish the goals they set.  Nothing is impossible if you are willing to work hard to accomplish it.
