My name is Laura Devine, and I am the owner of Real Fit Workout Studio. My philosophy as a fitness professional is to make every workout safe, effective, and most importantly, FUN! I strive to take the focus away from exercising for the purpose of an external goal (lose 10 lbs, fit into a certain pants size, etc). I encourage my clients to find the joy in leading a healthy lifestyle, and then the external goals will follow.
My uniquely designed programs are catered towards the individual, with a commitment to the highest standards of personal service. My studio was designed with your privacy in mind. Working out with me is as comfortable as working out at your own home.
I began my journey in the fitness industry in 1999 as a Group Fitness Instructor for the University of Minnesota. Little did I know that experience would spark a passion and drive to develop a career centered around fitness.
At the University of Minnesota, I received my BA in Physiology and a minor in Business Management. I received my Personal Training and Group Fitness Certifications through the American Council on Exercise (ACE) in 2003. I am a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) through the Yoga Alliance, and received my yoga training from YogaFit. I am also trained in Keiser Indoor Cycling, Pilates Coach, and I have additional specialty training in pre and post-natal women, mature adults, youth fitness, and athletic training.
