Originally a Bay Area native, Laurence graduated from St. Francis High School in Mountain View, CA, where he was a three sport athlete (football, basketball, and baseball). Baseball was the sport he excelled in the most though, and went on to play college baseball, until sidelined by a torn rotator cuff injury. This unfortunately led to the end of his athletic career, and although the dream of playing professional sports was done, he believes that everything happens for a reason. During this time, he began studying the body, human movement, and how to improve performance.  He majored in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Fitness, Nutrition, and Health from San Diego State University. He holds certifications as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist from the National Strength and Conditioning Association, Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine, Gravity Certified Personal Trainer through EFI Sports Medicine, and is Functional Movement Screening Certified through Functional Movement Systems. He specializes in sports performance training, functional strength training, increasing lean muscle mass and decreasing body fat, as well as weight loss.

Laurence is dedicated to coaching, inspiring, educating, motivating, and encouraging individuals to reach their fitness goals, athletic goals, living a healthy lifestyle and achieving their dreams! He has trained hundreds of athletes, from the high school level, college, to the top pros in the NFL, MLB, and in MMA and Boxing. But his passion is not just limited to training athletes looking to take their game to the next level. He is just as passionate about training ANYONE that wants to enhance their quality of life through health and fitness. Laurence believes that the most important investment you can make for your future is investing in your health. True wellness is having a balance between physical, mental, and spiritual well being. Not only will you have more energy and less stress, but you’ll begin to look better, and feel better. When you look good, you feel good…and when you feel good, that will carry over positively into all aspects of your life!

Three of his favorite quotes are:

“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” – Wayne Gretzky

“You can achieve anything you want in life if you have the courage to dream it, the intelligence to make a realistic plan, and the will to see the plan through to the end.” – Sidney Friedman

“Champions have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.” – Muhammad Ali
