Meet Lori Comshaw

As a busy wife and mother of 3 active kids, I know the importance of being fit. And so I learned how to manage kids/home/work/school and still find time to exercise. If I can do it, so can you! Let me help you find your passion for a healthy lifestyle and fit it into a hectic day.

My fitness philosophy is to "train from the inside out." My passion is creating a healthy inside, like your arteries, heart, blood pressure, and lungs. All of my Training Programs do this and will help decrease stress and create an overall sense of well-being.

The nutritional aspects of healthy living and weight loss/gain is at the core of my training. No matter what your reasons for getting fit, good nutrition will help you achieve your goals.
