Hi I’m Laurie

I’m Laurie Maynard, wife, mom to 2 busy kids, & owner of New Path Fitness & Wellness where I provide women with quality personalized coaching to support and enhance their health & fitness journey. I want to be the last coach you ever have to hire because you gain all the tools, knowledge and experience you need to successfully live a healthy lifestyle and crush your goals.

I specialise in working with women to build sustainable habits, and lifestyle change, increase confidence, educate around nutrition, and body image, provide training solutions, and mindset coaching so they can become the happiest, healthiest, and strongest version of themselves. The positive change experienced from coaching and in the journey is going to flow into all areas of life and improve them (work, relationships, self-beliefs etc). It’s the missing puzzle piece to enhance your overall lifestyle and goals.


I have always been passionate about health & fitness even from an early age.  I continued my passion and graduated from Ottawa University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physiotherapy.  Now I have over 24 years of clinical experience as a physiotherapist.  After many years treating injuries my focus shifted to a more holistic approach to health & fitness.  I wanted to prevent injuries and improve peoples quality of life. 

So… I became a canfitpro Certified Personal Trainer and Nutrition & Wellness coach. A Certified Holistic Nutritionist. Certified Yoga Exercise Specialist Instructor, & Pilates Mat Instructor, and Stott Certified Pilates Reformer Instructor.

My combined Physiotherapy, personal training, nutrition training, yoga and pilates expertise allows me to deliver nutrition & fitness programs for clients that are effective, safe, medically sound.

As I entered my 40s, I realized that what I had been doing in my 30s for my own health & fitness wasn’t cutting it any longer. Many of the women I was speaking with were also struggling with feelings of discouragement, defeat, and frustration with their bodies and the changes they were experiencing.

You see, as we enter our 40s our bodies shift and we have to shift right along with it. I began working out differently, eating differently & living differently than I had in my 30s and coached my clients to do the same. I truly believe this has contributed to my ability to THRIVE through my 40s. ( BTW, I’m turning 50 in Feb 2024)

When Human Design entered into my orbit in 2022 I was astonished at how the small shifts I made to align with my unique design brought so much more ease and flow to my life.

You don’t have to give in to the idea of “aging and slowing down is inevitable”. You have the power to embrace the changes and become more vibrant than you ever thought possible.

As a matter of fact, taking care of YOU will help you serve those in your life better and with more energy. You deserve to feel your best. I’m excited to show you how!

My past experiences & struggles have.....

gotten me to where I am in my own journey and now I have the privilege of working with women and coaching them on their own. We break through the struggles and come out the other side and they are happier, healthier, stronger and finally feel confident within themselves.
