Laura Coombs, Master Trainer
Laura Coombs is one of Fitness Plus’ Master Trainers. She is a Certified Athletic Trainer (NATA), Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (NSCA), and a certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist (FNS) with 20+ years of experience in the field of personal training.
Laura enjoys working with all types of clients; however, her specialty is working with people who are overcoming specific injuries or those who need help overcoming movement and posture issues.
In addition to being a personal trainer, Laura is the exclusive provider of Fitness Plus’ personal nutritional services. Her love for nutritional education led her to start her own nutritional services and educational company in 2013 called moveitbuddy. Together with Fitness Plus, moveitbuddy provides busy people with healthy solutions to maximize their wellness goals.
Laura combines her skills and experience as both a personal trainer and nutrition specialist to help her do what she truly loves: helping people improve their “healthspan” by coaching them toward lifestyle changes that will improve their overall strength, mobility, and nutritional health.
Laura received her B.S. in Psychology at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, and her M.S. in Exercise Physiology at Queens College (New York). When she was growing up in upstate New York, Laura dreamed of visiting the Swiss alps like Johanna Spyri’s heroine “Heidi,” and vowed in her Girl Scout Handbook at age 8 that she would “have a job that helps people be healthy.” Laura is now living her dream, bringing her expertise to a global audience through the Internet, social media, and corporate wellness seminars.
“I educate individuals and families on healthy, long-term habits through my work at Fitness Plus.”
