Laura Dow

I am passionate about helping older clients live engaged, vibrant lives improving ease of movement. I have many years' experience working in the fitness industry including commercial big box gyms as well as retirement communities. With a large toolbox drawn from personal training, life coaching, nutrition, yoga, Pilates and other disciplines, I help clients regain mobility/flexibility, increase muscle strength and endurance, decrease stress, improve sleep and overall feel and move better. I have worked with clients both pre-hab before orthopedic surgery such as knee/hip replacement and post hab after surgery and after physical therapy is complete. Please contact me through my website contact page for more information www.stifftofit.com
