Hi I'm Laura! I am a Colorado native, born and raised in Aurora. After spending a few years working on a cruise ship and dancing professionally in Las Vegas, I returned to this beautiful state and couldn’t be happier. I love finding new places to hike on the weekends, testing my endurance with a workout at Red Rocks, and snowshoeing through the winter.
While I have danced and taught dance throughout my life, I also have a mixed back of tricks to bring to the table. Weight lifting is my passion and I have competed in several NPC Figure Competitions under the eyes of a Ms. Olympia ranked coach. I have also dappled in circus arts, specifically aerial silks, and was once invited to and auditioned for Cirque du Soleil.
Personal progression is addicting and I love helping others achieve that. I am a group fitness certified instructor as well as licensed in several Zumba genres. I look forward to working with you all to reach and exceed your fitness goals. It’s going to be a great ride!
Laura Wallis instructs the following:
Work your muscles in every way possible in this class designed to build strength, add definition, increase your bone density, and decrease your body fat by increasing your lean muscle. Research has proven that by adding lean muscle to the body you can speed up your metabolism and burn more calories when you work out and at rest. You will use hand weights, plate loaded barbells, tubing and your own body weight to change the shape of your body. No muscle gets neglected in this class!

Participants will reap cardiovascular benefits, muscle conditioning, and metabolic boosts from this 55 minute class. All are welcome but we are not going to lie, this is a killer workout!
