providing practical education in real food nutrition, functional movement, and the parenthood transition ♡

I’m Laura Bruner.

I am a Certified Nutrition Consultant, Certified CrossFit Trainer, BIRTHFIT Coach, and mama to Evie Wilder.

I have a passion for educating, and I absolutely love teaching others about nutrition, movement, and mindfulness, and the power each has to set the foundation for health, wellness, and true quality of life. I offer 1-on-1 and group nutrition and fitness consulting, speaking engagements, and workshops (click here to learn more or to schedule). I am one of the voices and hearts behind the Modern Mamas Podcast. And I am the BIRTHFIT Regional Director for Santa Cruz.

I wholeheartedly believe that sustainably sourced, nutrient dense foods can be the greatest form of medicine as well as serve as the ingredients to create the most delicious, palate pleasing meals. Real food nutrition, along with mindfulness, intentional functional movement, and regular play are the integral pieces needed for a healthy, happy life. Asking questions, digging deep, speaking up, and living a little radically each and every day are necessary to grow strong – mind, body, and soul. Through my work, I hope to educate and inspire towards a shift in mindset, leading to healthier minds and bodies, increased strength and physical potential, longevity, more sustainable lifestyles, and a better understanding of the power that real nourishing foods and a life of movement and intention can have on our lives. I have a special place in my heart for mamas, the little souls they bring earth side, and the beautiful transition to motherhood, and I believe empowering mamas is one of the best ways to create social and spiritual change in our world.

Life is all about the journey – exploring, creating, learning, growing, laughing, moving, playing, and raising an empowered daughter with my husband, Rusty. I am bringing you along for the ride. Follow along as I put down roots with my family wherever our adventures take us. I’ll post information about sustainable, nourishing foods and simple recipes and DIY projects for you to try, along with fitness tips and ideas to keep movement fun, effective, and lasting. I also partner up with some amazing companies providing supplements, snacks, and apparel to help us live the best life possible. Enjoy the journey, and always live rad! ♡
