Lauren’s involvement in athletics began at the ripe young age of 6, when she was placed on a local summer swim team, and the rest is history. From then on she would be active in sports year round, including track and field, ballet, soccer, and water polo. In high school, she became involved in athletic training, learning more about the injury prevention side of sports. This interest carried over in the college, where she spent three years interning for the UC Davis athletic department as a student athletic trainer. Unfortunately, a back injury ruled out collegiate sports. For the first time in 12 years, Lauren was not competing in any type of athletics. After struggling with a 30 pound weight gain from lack of activity and more pizzas than she can count, she took it upon herself to take nutrition classes and start researching fitness topics to find the best solution. It took many trials and errors over the course of her college years, but she found strength training and the proper nutrition balance that allowed her to maintain a healthy body. She also trained for and ran her first and only marathon in 2008. After graduating with her Bachelor’s in Exercise Biology, she entered the professional world, jumping from personal training to teaching to corporate wellness. Then, personal issues in 2011 caused her to gain back more than all of the weight she’d lost in college, becoming the heaviest she’d been her whole life. In August, she decided enough was enough, peeled herself off the couch and did something about it. She started lifting weights again, exploring the world of Olympic lifting, as well as throwing herself head first into high intensity interval training. She dropped from over 27% (she doesn’t know for sure how much more, she didn’t want to know) to 17%, dropping from a size 10 to a size 4. Today she is physically and emotionally stronger than she has ever been, and only wants to pass this love of fitness and proper health and life balance on to as many people as she can reach.
