There is no doubt why Laurie Cole's classes sell out like crazy. A perfect blend of strength and cardio, her classes leave my legs wobbly and my arms sore in the best way! She came up and turned up my resistance - she even helped me get my form right. Laurie's all about form. You wouldn't expect this amazing popular CULT instructor to give anybody personal attention, but Laurie does. Just one of the reasons why I love her so much. Her music is amazing - with a blend of everything from top 40 to oldschool to house beats, which i love because there is something for everyone.
Her mantras are also inspirational - you know how you KNOW some people are just saying things for the hell of it? Not Laurie. She believes in everything she says. She's motivating but friendly, and inspirational while working your ass HARD. My favorite thing she says, and she says it a lot is "Nobody else can make you feel bad about yourself but you." As someone who allows external factors to affect me, Laurie reminds me that only I have the power to change my life, no matter what happens, and it's something that sticks with me whenever I'm upset.
Laurie Cole, after a breakup left me so broken I couldn't leave my bed in the morning, I forced myself out of bed for you 8:30am Wednesday class, and it changed me. Thank you so much, from the bottom of my soul.
