[rev_slider Testimonials]

Laurie Graves is an amazing inspiration to so many people. Through her past experiences and trials, she has turned what was meant to harm her into a path of good for the people she comes into contact with. I know some of those whom she has trained physically, and they are fitter and stronger than ever. But most importantly, the mental and spiritual aspect of her beliefs are an incredible base for those wishing to change their lives and follow the path that God has for them. I have read Laurie’s devotional and have been inspired to begin a new journey for myself, and I do not doubt that those that read her devotional will find hope and inspiration in their walk with the Lord on their journey to a better life.

“Laurie has helped keep me in shape after The Biggest Loser! She is a great trainer and person, she adds that personal touch and cares for each individual she trains and tailors a plan that is right for YOU.  She can help you get into the BEST shape of your life!  I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their life and seeking a healthier lifestyle.”

“When you work with Laurie, she takes into consideration all of your needs, not just weight loss.  If you feel there is something physical that has been holding you back from reaching your goals, she will find a way to help you work through whatever it is and she shows you that your physical goals are attainable no matter what.  During the training sessions she motivates and inspires you based on what you CAN do, unlike some trainers who make you feel inferior for what you CAN’T do.”

“Laurie has been a huge blessing in my life.  Since being off the show, it was crucial for my journey to find mentors who could continue to inspire and motivate me the same way Bob and Jillian did, and Laurie has exceeded my expectations.  She is a great trainer and even better friend.”

Aaron Thompkins

“Laurie Graves is a superb trainer.  She was at the taping of my finale and sought me out to personally extend an invitation to workout with her.  I had never trained with a woman before, and must say I was impressed!  She is encouraging without being intimidating and catered the workout to my fitness level.  I felt comfortable with Laurie from the start!  I would highly recommend her as a personal trainer.”

Laurie is a successful graduate of multiple Fitness, Nutrition, and Health Certifications offered here at the Cooper Institute, Dallas, Texas. I was one of her instructors formany of the topics and got to know Laurie more personally. Because she herself had to overcome excessive weight gain and the emotional bruises that led to such behaviors, Laurie is very compassionate, but also very savvy about navigating the ups and downs and potential pitfalls that can challenge even the most determined person. Laurie not only has a good command of health and fitness information but she is also a mature,devoted Christian. Her knowledge of the Word of God comes alive as she guides individauals Spirit, Soul, and Body.

“I can’t say THANK YOU enough to one of the most thoughtful people I know.  Laurie Graves has put her heart and soul into helping me on my journey. A few years ago I weighed 913 lbs and very miserable. I saw Joyce Meyer talking on TV and she said, “Stop complaining about what you don’t have and what you can’t do, and think about the things you DO HAVE and what you CAN do. Quit having the poor me attitude”!! That was the first kick in the pants I received on my weight-loss journey. I’ve lost 415 pounds since then, but had been on a plateau for seven weeks.  God sent another kick in the pants by way of Laurie Graves. Laurie has taken me under her wing and is helping me along on my journey to “The Biggest Loser” season 12.  I believe in angels and I believe Laurie is one of a few that has been sent to guide and help me along the way. She accepts me for who I am and has never judged me for my size. She has a heart of gold. She puts me through intense workouts and helped me realize all the things I can do with my 500-pound body. I am grateful for her coming into my life and being another kick in the pants, just like Joyce Meyer was.  Laurie and Joyce are at the top of my hero list. I officially name Laurie Graves as my trainer on the journey to ‘The Biggest Loser’ season 12″

“Since reaching my 40′s, gravity was beginning to work against me and I wanted to lower my blood pressure.  Laurie listened and planned workouts that were customized for me!
