NASM Certified Personal Train/Nutrition Coach
Lauren is someone who can be described as trustworthy, caring, fun and positive. She grew up in Waukesha and attended Waukesha West High School and then Carroll University. During college Lauren found her passion for coaching and teaching. She has coached girls soccer, girls & boys volleyball and swimming. She paired those passions with her interest in science and the human body and graduated with high honors earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Physical & Health Education.
Previously she taught high school fitness and health education at Sussex Hamilton High School. She really enjoyed creating a space in which her students could develop a lifelong passion for being active in ways they enjoy vs viewing exercise and activity as a chore or punishment. In 2018 Lauren looked for an opportunity to help more than just her students and became a certified personal trainer and nutrition coach. Lauren began training at a bootcamp with large groups, but has really grown to love being able to give more direct and individualized instruction to her clients within the smaller atmosphere at 360!
Outside of work, Lauren loves to be active in any way she can – mostly walking & hiking nowadays. Being a past athlete in soccer and volleyball she loves to compete & challenge herself. She has completed a handful of half marathons, a full marathon, a 200 mile relay run. She is always up for a challenge, but realized through experience with injury and health issues that there is a lot to gain in finding balance between pushing your limits and giving your body the recovery it needs from the constant demands of our busy lives and strenuous exercise. She is looking forward to working with clients to help them find this balance in their fitness and personal endeavors.
She strives to educate individuals on how to move safely, find enjoyment in activity, and strive to achieve balance and moderation for a healthy lifestyle. She aims to help clients understand how they can enhance their life with movement and strength training. Lauren’s ultimate goal is to allow clients to do the things they love, reduce their stress and challenge their mind and body. All of this while breaking the perception of needing to spend hours in the gym each day. The quote “give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime” resonates strongly with her. Lauren believes there is great value in educating clients how to incorporate fitness and wellness into their lifestyles. When you create a trusting relationship with clients you truly can provide individualized training programs and guide clients to invest in finding their “why”. This allows clients to take ownership for creating a healthy lifestyle centered around movement they enjoy, proper nutrition and personal growth.
