Laura Williams


Laura Williams is a former couch potato who has revamped her lifestyle to become a highly successful personal trainer. As someone who used to smoke, drink, and eat chocolate for breakfast (she doesn't do any of this now, btw), Laura believes she's in a good position to take exercise to the British public; a kind of stepping stone between the Lycra brigade and the man on the street. Laura's clients include celebrities, people wanting to shape up for the beach and elite athletes who require intensive training. As well as being a top-ranking fitness expert, Laura is an established media commentator and has appeared on TV and radio as well as contributing regularly to titles such as The Independent, FHM, Mail Online and Glamour magazine.
