Courtney Laplante

Body Back Instructor

Hi I'm Courtney. I grew up in Duluth and continue to live here with my family. I'm married to my husband, Arnie, whom I've been with since I was 14! We've been married for 5 years and now have two beautiful children, Alexia and Dax.

I work at St. Lukes hospital as a respiratory therapist and I also assist coaching the East dance team. My first Stroller Strides class was the "preview" class with owner, Lisa Filzen, in 2015. I was hooked ever since! I then started Body Back after I had my son in September 2016, in which I became even more addicted. The women, the workouts and accountability is amazing.

I'm so excited to start teaching Body Back for FIT4MOM Twin Ports and to be a part of this amazing FIT4MOM team!

Sometimes, mama needs a break too! Whether you are shamelessly putting the kids to bed an hour early, or neglecting your chore list (guilty!) we want to hear from Y O U! C O M M E N T below what show you are currently binge watching?

We LOVE to recognize the women in our community who work hard to take care of their bodies, so they can take care of their families. Today we are cheering for Daisy Cartier because her strength, soul, personality, and beauty say it all. Daisy, we are crushing on you! #MomCrushMonday

Remember to B R E A T H E, mama! During our classes, you will generally hear the instructor reminding you to B R E A T H E at least once during our exercises. Why? Breathing exercises can help with stress management and overall well-being. When practicing any breathing exercise, "always inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth. Keep your shoulders relaxed, and don't shrug them" (Google, 2017). Try this: fill and empty your lower lungs 8 to 10 times. Next, add the second step to your breathing: inhale first into your lower lungs as before, and then continue inhaling into your upper chest" (Google, 2017). Inhale, exhale, repeat. How do you feel?
