One of the biggest things I was concerned about before my son was born was whether or not I’d be able to bounce back both physically and mentally. It was a real concern.
When I was pregnant I ended up gaining around 55 lbs. It stings to say it, even now. Everything I heard and read talked about 25-30 lbs being a realistic weight gain. I’m here to tell you, it doesn’t always work that way. I enjoyed my pregnancy and would not change a thing, but after the baby was born I was ready to get back into shape.
I started working with Laura after the baby was born via Skype. Who knew you could exercise and live in different states. I knew I was in good hands and she walked me through every step of the way to get my body back after pregnancy. Laura cares and it shows with every workout and conversation we had. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Hi, my name is Sue and I live in North England I had been overweight most of my adult life, putting weight on, going on a silly diet, maybe losing a little, but of course, it would all come straight back on very quickly. I am type one diabetic, which means I am insulin controlled, and I blamed my weight a lot that. I just made excuse after excuse.
Then, in 2010, I had my second marriage, and at the time, I thought I looked like the bee’s knees. I was quite overweight, I was just trying to say I didn’t care, and I still looked great. I couldn’t look at my wedding pictures without feeling sick with disappointment and embarrassment.
With Laura’s help and dedication, I have managed to drop the 30 lbs. and feel like a brand new me! Working with you one on one was the best decision I have ever made.
I met you backstage at the C.J. Fitness Classic and let me just start by saying thank you so much for your help that crazy day. I think I must have changed 20 times and was so nervous. You came over absolutely beautiful inside and out and helped to soothe my nerves me and give me your advice. I have always thought of you and have always wanted to say thank you so much for being such an inspiration and help that my first fitness competition. I love what I do and train 6 days a week and eat clean. I am working on my NASM Personal Training certificate. I would like to continue to inspire others and make a difference in peoples lives just like you do Laura.
My name is Suzanne and I am 42 years old. I am the mom of four wonderful kids. My “before” picture was taken in 2002. This was the year I completed my first marathon, the MDI Marathon, in a time of 6 hours and 47 minutes. It was hard work being so heavy, but I finished. I realized I was carrying around a lot of baggage in my life (both in pounds and emotionally) and in 2004, I finally started to take charge of my lif
I began a weight loss journey, and then started running in earnest. I came back in 2007 to run the MDI Marathon again, and this time finished with a time of 4:31. My journey has continued and is still evolving. My best marathon time is 3:51; I was less than 2 minutes from qualifying for Boston! This July, I will complete my first ultra marathon, which is 50k distance.
Just in this past year, I have learned about clean eating, so that is becoming a part of my journey along with weight lifting. I will compete in MDI again this fall, but after that I would like to take a step away from distance running and focus on body building.
Laura, you have been a great inspiration to me.
“I want to live a full life, without the complexes that overweight brings”
Working behind a desk, post-pregnancy, a sedentary life and a dreadful diet was what took me to weigh 287 lbs, with only 64 inches tall, during a 10 years period.
I was always a thin girl and practiced volleyball during my adolescence but when I married and had more responsibilities, I started to forget about exercise to the point of not doing any at all. When I gave birth to my daughter Valerie that’s already 11 years old, I rapidly began to gain weight. Everything in my life was the house, work and family; exercise was completely eliminated.
Years past and I continued gaining weight without control. My job of Administrative Manager in a manufacturing company would keep me sitting down for more than 7 hours and had a dreadful diet at the same time. I would wake up in a hurry leaving to work without eating breakfast. In many cases I would skip lunch. When I got home exhausted I would help my daughter with homework, cooked and did household shores.
When I finally sat down to eat, I would do it with an excessive appetite and rapidly going to bed. I had stopped and boycotted my metabolism completely, living a totally sedentary life.
I have always been active. Never over weight in my life. Staying at home with my greatest accomplishment our 2 boys, Logan & Landon, I found myself too *comfortable*. I saw a picture of myself that I did not recognize. Or Like. So I started my journey back into fitness. I had been a CPT for almost 10 years in the 90′s. I DECIDED NO MORE. I DECIDED to work hard and find myself again. But not just an *OK version* of me. But the BEST me I can be. Not just for myself, but for my husband, and our boys too.
Picking up the heavy weights again for the first time in quite awhile. Just a little girl from TX with BIG FITNESS dreams. It is truly a journey. Not happening as fast as id like. But it WILL happen. I am blessed beyond measure and we live an amazing life. I am so grateful to God for our precious family♥ Finding *ME* again is just cake. A healthy cake of course….

I really enjoyed your presentation at the Health & Fitness Expo in Concord NC. I find myself turning 50 this year and I identified with some fat where I didn’t want it and many other things. I actually thought for years that I would become a body builder, but never had the knowledge or maybe even confidence to get there. However you did inspire me to join the gym – which I’m going to 3 days a week. I eat pretty healthy – I grow all of my own organic foods, I preserve (can) lots of things all year. I have my own honey bees and chickens for my eggs. I don’t eat out very much because I want to control what I eat as much as possible. I’m also into nutrition – so you were so easy to identify with. I use nutrition to treat the cause of an illness – not just treating the symptom. Thanks again Laura. *Results may vary

Hi Laura! I just read your interview from Maniac Fitness and I found my eyes welling up as I was going through it.
It’s funny when your “friends” with someone you follow on Facebook and you find things you relate with them about, you can’t help but feel connected a bit as well. I have been following all of the things you have been teaching. I am on this ride with you as a fan & 40 year old supporter! Out of all of the Gazillions of Fit Chicks, Models & Competitors I have come across, you are the one who sticks with me. You are the one who makes me believe…. just maybe… I can reach my goals too.
Thank you so much for picking me up when I’m feeling defeated. I am so pulling for you, from way over here. *Results may vary

Dear Laura, I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas. You are a great fitness coach and an inspiring woman!
I consistently do my favorite sets of your exercises and I can’t believe my weight is melting off. I promised to keep you posted on my progress to let you know, I have lost another 4 kilos, which in total makes me 8 kilos lighter since June.
Yesterday I watched a family video my husband made Christmas, it hurt to watch it. I looked heavy and very tired. Watching it, I felt so sorry for myself, because I knew how unhappy and hopeless the woman in the film was. So yesterday it occured to me that this Christmas is going to be very different. It’s going to be just beautiful, because I feel so right now!
So thank you for helping me get where I am with your work. The regaining of my health and self-confidence is like the best Christmas present I could get. I thought that by telling you this I will give you a little Christmas present, too. *Results may vary

I admire your talent. I didn’t think it was possible to lose weight after 40 (well, I’m a few days from being 40) but you changed that around. You soooo inspire me.
Thank you sooo much Laura for EVERYTHING! I appreciate you so much and am so lucky to have you as my friend. I look up to you in so many ways and knowing that I have people like you supporting me in this is so awesome and rewarding! This journey has been the absolute hardest thing I have ever done physically and mentally, but I have become a different person, a stronger one.
You told me once to “follow your dreams because you never know where they will take you”, and I am still trying to pinch myself for all of the amazing things that have happened in my life this year ever since I decided to go for my dreams. Thank you for your inspiration and guidance and courage to step out there and make a difference in the world. In this world of negativity, it is time for the positivity to shine! *Results may vary
I wanted to share with you the benefits that I have gotten with your green smoothie recipes. My favorite is the kale and spinach. The cracks on my heals… gone. A battle for twenty years! Heart burn problems…. Gone! My skin is soft. No more rough elbows. My hair seems longer. Face has more color. Lost 4 lbs. when I started drinking it 1 month ago I had absolutely no idea about any of the benefits. I am now sharing this with my friends. Thank you! *Results may vary

Laura is an incredible inspiration to all of us “30+ Moms” who think our time has past and it’s to late to attain our fitness goals. Sometimes all it takes is that one person to show you it can be done, and done well. Laura London is that one!
When I read Laura London’s Mission Statement “Inspire and motivate you to achieve your goal’s and dreams and be your best at any age”, the “at any age” really caught my attention. You see, I’m 56 years old and I have a dream of being in a figure competition. I know what your thinking, not a easy feat for sure, maybe even impossible.
Then when watching one of her YouTube videos (by the way I watch daily) she said if anyone had any questions, just e-mail her. It took some time for me to e-mail her. I didn’t think she would answer because she is so big in the industry but one day I e-mailed her a simple question, “Did she think I was to old to get fit?” and you know what–SHE ANSWERED! That simple e-mail has changed my life!
It started a journey of fitness that I never want to end! I signed up for her coaching program and my journey started. Laura gave me the tools that I so desperately needed to get started and to stay focused. I now have a binder with her picture on the front that I take everywhere, and in that binder I have my daily eating plan that she wrote for me, my workout plan for each day that she designed for the goals that I wanted accomplish.
The day we set up for our phone consultation couldn’t come fast enough for me! I was so excited you’d think it was Christmas morning! Laura is so sweet, she is the real deal and she really cares that you get the results that you want.
She answered ALL of my questions, we went through my exercise and diet plan, she even made me my very own personalized videos and how to work my upper and lower body that showed me how to get more out of the workout. She was actually talking to me in the videos, which really inspired me, like I was in the room with her! Then, she called back to check up on my progress!
Laura London has changed my LIFE! Everyone can see it! My body has never looked so good, I have muscles where I didn’t even know you could get muscles. It’s hard to put into words, the inspiration she has been to me! She has held my hand though this whole process, always encouraging me, never letting me give up.
Laura London really cares; I mean it when I say it, SHE CARES! I love the way I look and I have people who actually do not recognize me, loll. They want to know what I’ve been doing and they say I look so much YOUNGER. I have so much more confidence, and I am so proud of the way I look.
Laura, you live by your mission statement! I am so blessed to have you in my life and have you as a coach. I never would of thought I could look this good in a million years, but you knew I could. So, Thank You Laura, for getting me off the couch and into the gym!
I will have those Laura London’s AB’s! Your Fitness Friend for LIFE. *Results may vary
