Lareka has been on both sides and knows the importance of physical activity. After a life- threatening health scare and losing over 40lbs she birthed her business In Full Throttle Fitness to help others reach their fitness goals through personal training, nutrition as well as many group fitness formats. She specializes and teaches several fitness formats such as strength, HIIT, abs/glutes sculpting, boxing, boot camp, step, water aerobics, dance and more. She works with everyone including people with special needs. She teaches a boxing class for people with Parkinson’s disease that’s proven to lessen their symptoms and lead a healthier and happier life.
She’s a “Boy Mom” of 3 who lives with her soulmate and biggest supporter Alexzander raising their new baby boy Luka in North Carolina. She started in the fitness industry as a dancer for an NBA team over 15 years ago and has since then expanded her skills and experience.

Lareka believes in making fitness fun for everyone. She wants to show everyone how to fall in love with being fit and living a healthier lifestyle.
