Born and raised in Manhattan, Laura always wanted to do it "all." From her days as a three sport varsity athlete and captain in High School, to her completion of three New York City Marathons while news producing at CNN, working at the NYPD as an Intelligence Analyst, and studying International Affairs and Arabic at Columbia University, fitness has been the one constant in Laura's life. But it wasn't until she was pregnant with her daughter, Sophia, born in March 2012, that she was determined to turn her love for exercise into a career. Laura owns The Fit Co The Fit Co, a boutique studio in Manhattan. Here the mission is consistent and efficient fitness where circumstances don't stop you; she offers MamaFit and Buggy Barre classes as well as a range of other classes.
