Laura Crump Anderson
Laura Crump Anderson is a lifelong equestrian who realized from an early age the importance of recognizing and caring for riders’ bodies as athletes, as we do for our horses. Anderson found herself with a chronic overtraining injury to her spine without ever having set foot in a gym. Through physical therapy, she was able to continue riding and caring for her horses. This inspired her to get her degree in Kinesiology with a concentration in Exercise Science. Anderson is an American College of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer and has completed a 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training with Yoga Alliance. She founded Hidden Heights Fitness in Lovettsville, Virginia, and has worked with equestrian athletes of all ages and levels—from weekend warriors to former Olympians in the disciplines of dressage, eventing, and show jumping. Her favorite thing to do is help riders discover the strength to communicate better than they ever thought possible, or—if starting again or starting over—get back to where they once were.
