Dr. Laura Miranda NYC Fitness Trainer Physical Therapist

By trade, I am a fitness coach and physical therapist; by mission, I help women ‘Become The Best Possible Version of Ourselves’ (also the company motto!)

I came from a less than stellar childhood where the very people that were in place to support my development into a healthy balanced person were not sufficiently present or equipped for the job.   At a very young age I found sports as an outlet for my pain and trauma. I was fortunate enough to have a few strong female coaches that single-handedley changed the direction of my life through her guidance and unconditional belief in me. These women taught me how to believe in myself and go after and achieve anything that I wanted.
As a result, I have been striving as a fitness professional to impart the same kind of empowerment and belief in my clients as my coaches had in me. This is why I do what I do so passionately; I am trying to “pay it forward” every single day.
Through my experiences I have learned that EVERYTHING we encounter in life can be used as something that can either help us get to the next level or take us down.

No matter what shit hand YOU have been dealt, an abusive childhood, a bad day at the office or anything else that might trigger you to make unhealthy decisions, you still get to choose what you will do with that pain and stress.

Will you give up, check out, numb out, or eat your feelings? OR will you use the ‘shit’ as FUEL to uncover your greatness? I believe that you have to “CHOOSE to use your less than perfect life circumstances to find your extraordinary strengths.”

My Strong Healthy Woman training/coaching philosophy, moto, and core values all reflect the concept that we must ALWAYS be striving for continued growth and evolution to be a better athlete and a better human.

Most people think achieving the body of their dreams is all about having the BEST clean eating plan and the HARDEST workout routine. Well, if it were JUST about that, we all would have achieved perfection by now! The secret sauce that’s missing in that equation is the Mindset, baby.

I will teach you how to train harder than you ever have before, AND love it. I will teach you how to eat in order to fuel your body for fat loss in a way that you never have before, AND love it. But I will also show you how to look at your failures, successes, achievements, pitfalls, fears, dreams and triggers (ahem: MINDSET!)  in a way that will make all of the RESULTS from the training and clean eating to STICK AROUND for the long haul. Because, isn’t that what it’s all about anyway?

Grow. Evolve. Get stronger. Push harder. Have more compassion. Uncover the joy. Dig deeper. Love yourself.

Jamie Gevirtz

Certified Personal Trainer in Long Island, Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist

Jamie Gevirtz Strong Healthy Woman Personal Trainer Long Island My name is Jamie and I am an ACE certified personal trainer and Fitness Nutrition Specialist. Before discovering my passion for health and fitness, I was overweight, unfit and unhappy with my appearance. I never exercised and ate fast food like it was my job!

One day, everything changed after my friend dragged me to a cardio kickboxing class. Something wonderful and amazing woke up inside of me. For the first time in my life, I realized that I was a strong, capable woman full of so much potential. This began my quest for a healthy lifestyle and after 1 year of hard work and dedication I lost over 20lbs and radically changed my life for the better.

Today, as a personal trainer, I am able to pass on the secrets of my success to my clients.

For the last several years, I have helped countless women achieve their weight-loss goals, revamp their diet, and improve their entire lifestyle. My workouts are a blend of fun and challenging exercises, which are customized to meet the clients’ needs and achieve the greatest calorie burn! We will use a mix of suspension training, kickboxing, kettle bells and even the occasional obstacle course to keep my clients fully engaged and driven towards success!

Jamie works with Strong Healthy Woman Long Island Personal Training clients  in the privacy of their homes and outdoors as well!
