Catwalk to treadmill for model Laura

SHE has just qualified as a personal trainer, and now Laura Scanlon is combining her love of exercise and modelling.

The Assets beauty is the new face of Life Style Sports' new Millie and Gym collection and will be sporting the brand's latest designs.

"It's always been a dream of mine to do fitness modelling and now I'm getting this fantastic opportunity," Laura said.

The 25-year-old attended an open casting for the job some months ago.

"Pretty much all of the Irish agencies were there and no one heard anything for a while afterwards.


"Then I got a call two weeks ago saying I'd made the cut, which was amazing," Laura said.

"I'll be showcasing the new range online. It's the perfect job for me."

Laura is juggling her catwalk commitments with her CrossFit classes.

"I'm qualified now and it's very busy, which is great," she said. "It's flexible too - I have time to go to shoots and stuff."

Laura, who last year returned to Ireland following a stint in Dubai with boyfriend Dave Murphy, is just back from a holiday in California and Las Vegas.
