About Me

Welcome to my blog!  I’m Laura and I’m a busy mom that loves to spend time with my family, run, cook, eat and play.  I’m currently working towards my personal training certification a Certified Fitness Instructor through ISSA and an ACE Fitness Nutrition Specialist.  I believe that you don’t need an expensive gym membership to get a good sweat in!  I’m also a Tabata Boot Camp instructor!

I am an Autism Fitness Trainer.  As the Director of Training at The Exercise Connection, I spend a portion of my week teaching classes and training individuals with autism and other special needs.

Exercise Connection

As a Sweat Pink and Girls Gone Sporty Ambassador I have enjoyed connecting with women all over the world who share in my passion for food, fun and fitness.  I live in the north suburbs of Chicago and while our winters are hard, I love our summers, especially with my little lady!  I’d love to hear from any and all of you and look forward to sharing my journey of food, fitness, and fun with you guys!

  2. Hello Laura,
    Just a quick message to ask if you would be interested in a ‘mutual’ following on twitter. I am currently following you now and am awaiting for your follow-back. (#FYI I do RT’s ‘anytime’ for all #Triathletes #Cyclists #UltraRunners #Marathoners #FitnessProfessionals who follow me on Twitter and have something important they want mentioned for support…)

    All the very best to you & your family for 2013 & beyond Laura. Look forward to hearing from you…

    Hi Laura,

    My name is Haira and I am sending you this e-mail on behalf of Cordskinz Marketing/PR team to introduce our new product that solves earbud tangles once and for all.

    Tangled earbuds has been a problem for many if not all earbud-users with no easy solution. Other products aiming to liberate earbuds from their tangled existence require folding, organizing, or tying earbuds in certain way…too much work!

    My team just launched Cordskinz to resolve this issue. Cordskinz provides three main values 1) Easy Anti-Tangle, 2) Cord-Protection, and 3) Ability to style earbuds.

    Check us out at cordskinz.com
    Or our FB page
    (https://www.facebook.com/pages/CordSkinz/555142521297128)

    Our product is brand new in the market and we would love your review.

    Please let me know if you would be interested in reviewing or writing our product.

    Thank you and let me know if you have any questions.

    Haira and the Cordskinz Team
