There has never been a moment in Lara’s life where she hasn’t been active and this passion has led her to working in the Health and Fitness Industry, which she believes is the best job in the world. Lara has been involved in sport and fitness her whole life and has come from a background of competitive sport which included travelling Australia in Basketball and competing at National level in Swimming.

Throughout her impressive sporting career Lara developed a passion for coaching. Her focus is in helping women develop their personal strengths and helping women to achieve a happy balance between food, exercise and life. She has a strong passion for strength and functional training and believes that each of us should be doing whatever makes our hearts sing.

Lara has extensive experience in the field of strength, functional and HIIT training. She is currently undertaking a double degree with a Bachelor of Human Nutrition and a Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science.
