This lady has inspired me in so many different ways! She has made her mark in the industry in a number of London studios with her bubbly character and dedication to fitness! Introducing Laura Hoggins, known as @bicepsandbronzer! You can find her lifting or inspiring people to lift!
HAVE YOU ALWAYS BEEN INTO FITNESS?
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO START TRAINING?
LAURA: I was doing a lot of hours in the office, and I had joined a corporate netball league but I regularly had to miss games due to work load. I found a crossfit box that had opened opposite the l’Oreal UK offices. I spent 6am-7am there every morning and it helped me to start my day right.
HOW DID YOU ACTUALLY GO ABOUT BEGINNING YOUR FITNESS CAREER?
LAURA: I decided one day I would try it, I was always told I would make a good coach from my captaincy years at Netball. However, financially I had a lot to lose if I couldn’t make it a new career of it. I wasn’t in it for the money, I wanted to get by, and truly experience that job satisfaction everyone talked about!
WHAT WERE YOUR ‘GOALS’ AND HOW DID THEY CHANGE?
LAURA: My goals were personally to be fit healthy and happy in my skin. I was properly looking after myself. I went after some numbers on key lifts, and just chipped away at them.
