Laura has aspired to be an athlete at every stage of her life. After a recurring running injury set her back in 2010, a friend recommended barre classes, and soon after she became a group fitness junkie. A few years later she dislocated her shoulder in a rollerblading accident and, in the years that followed, attended physical therapy to treat both shoulders. After rehabilitating from shoulder surgery she joined a Pilates studio near her apartment in Chicago and immediately began to notice her body recover faster and stronger. What Laura admires most about Pilates is it is a safe, challenging, and healing workout for the mind and body.
