She also has decades of experience in cross-country ski racing and holds several medals from National Masters and World Masters competitions. A geophysicist by day, Laura likes indoor training to be fun, focused, and challenging. She draws on her outdoor sports background for class design and promotes power-based training principles to enable members to personalize their workouts even in a group setting.
