A martial artist and personal trainer for thirty years, Laurie has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and holds international and national titles in fighting. Last year, she trained in Thailand in four different training amps and competed in Muay Thai against men and women from all over the world. Still competing in full contact muay thai at age fifty, against much younger opponents, Laurie exemplifies her firm belief that there is no limit to what a person can achieve with hard training and good nutrition. She has successfully helped clients recover from debilitating injuries and has helped empower others with chronic physical disabilities to overcome limitations. In Laurie’s words, "training and good nutrition builds a body inside and out and thats what it is all about!"
Laurie trains at Chok Sabai in Manhattan with Kru-Natalie, and trains her clients at Harbor Fitness in Bayridge, Brooklyn. Her skills with her hands have helped her hone her skills in the art of hair styling which she has proven on a great deal at Bruno Grillo's Salon & Spa in her native Bay Ridge in Brooklyn.
Laurie will be joined on stage by one of her proteges 18 year old Christie Piscitelli. Christie recently graduated from Bishop Kearney High School in Brooklyn, New York this past summer, and now she is taking classes at the College of Staten Island. She has grown up in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn all her life.
Since she was seven years old, she's been working out and taking kickboxing lessons with Laurie Cahill. Ever since then, she has not stopped meeting with Laurie, working out and she has inspired her throughout her teenage years and now into her adulthood. Kickboxing with Laurie has almost been life changing for Christie. It’s a stress reliever, it keeps her in shape and she has come to realize how significant it will be in every aspect of her adult life.
Before she graduated from Bishop Kearney High School, she became captain of the cheer squad. As time consuming as it was, it was her life when the season came around. For her, cheer camp was one of the biggest days of the school year because it was a bonding experience for both returning members of the team and new first year cheerleaders. If she could, she would go back in time to be part of that cheer squad again.
For a few years now, she's been thinking of going into the field of medicine, specifically pharmaceuticals. She has been interning at a pharmacy in Staten Island, New York for a couple of years and she really enjoys the environment, the people and the job itself.
Now these 2 ordinary locals with extraordinary abilities and aspirations will share what they know wit Sissy this Friday night LIVE 7:30pm EST on MNN (Manhattan Neighborhood Network) Channel 56 Time Warner Cable Manhattan and on our website www.thesissygamacheshow.com
