Laura Tourtellot


Laura started lifting weights for bodybuilding in 1981, and has never stopped. Using resistance training to successfully compete throughout New England for ten years, she enjoyed being a top ranked natural bodybuilder. That passion never halted. Being a “gym rat”, she has worked with thousands of individuals and is a reputable Pro Masters Personal Trainer, locally and nationally.

In 1991 she was invited to head Judge for New England events, became a National Judge and Official and ultimately a Promoter.  Since then, Ms Turtle has produced NH’s Premier Natural Bodybuilding, Figure and Bikini Competition as a National Qualifier. The Annual Granite State Open is now sanctioned with the WNBF and always held on Halloween weekend.

Athletes often recognize this event as the best-run show they have ever participated in.  It takes a village to raise a show, and the volunteers and friends involved in this venue consistently put their passion into the sport. We celebrate health and well-being, a strong competitive and fair playing field and honor the first timer to the go-pro enthusiast. One and all are welcome to the NH Seacoast annual event.
