During her teenage life, Lara thought she would be a ballerina and, without realising it, was doing Pilates to strengthen her back and improve her hip rotation. She ended up working in gym sales and by default started teaching stretch classes to the gym patrons. She then found herself loving weight lifting because it was such a change from ballet. She later added running, Muay Thai (Thai kickboxing) and yoga to her activities. She soon noticed that when she left Pilates out of her routines, she didn’t feel as good. Recently, she’s been doing half marathons with hopes of a full marathon in the near future.
Lara has a Cert IV in Pilates and Fitness and a Diploma of Clinical Pilates from Breathe Education.
Little known fact about Lara: She has two hairless sphinx cats called Lady Godiva and Coco Chanel who rule the household.
