About Our Authors
As a CrossFit affiliate owner and trainer, Nutrition/Health Coach, and Primal Lifestyle Resource, Laura is committed to coaching others into a healthy, real food, holistic lifestyle that best suits the unique metabolic and lifestyle needs of each individual. Laura earned her first nutrition/health coach certification through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where she studied over 100 different dietary theories, and determined through research and personal experience that an “Ancestral” approach to diet and lifestyle was the most effective. She then aligned herself with the Primal Health Coach Certification program in order to coach others through long-term lifestyle changes. As a working mother of 4 children, Laura understands the demands of today’s busy lifestyle, and the detrimental impact the dietary choices so many of us make in the interest of convenience. Laura runs momgonepaleo.com, a paleo-centered health and nutrition blog providing resources, advice, recipes, and helpful tips for other busy people concerned with living a healthier life. She found CrossFit in 2012 in an effort to find a fully functional, whole body fitness program and fell in love with it. It is also where Laura met and married CrossFit trainer Brad Rupsis. In 2014, Laura and Brad opened Absolution CrossFit in La Grange, IL. Laura’s Certifications Include: CF Level 1, IIN Certified Health Coach, Certified Primal Health Coach.
