Personal Training

Whether you want to improve your health, gain muscle or strength, lose weight, or simply feel more energy in your life, we will address your personal goals and create customized workout sessions based on your needs and goals.

A few key elements for personal training success:

-Tailored to your Lifestyle: training will be tailored to your busy lifestyle, specific needs, and goals.

-Strengthening the Core : By emphasizing core stability, we build a foundation on hip and abdominal strength, which supports proper body movement and stabilizes the spine.

-Natural motion:  techniques are based on principles of biomechanics that use the body’s natural motion, and this will slightly differ depending on each person’s natural range of motion.

-Multi-directional movement : while most traditional exercise machines work muscles in one singular plane, real life involves many planes.  This functional fitness approach uses conditioning techniques that takes into account the ways you actually move in your daily lifestyle : front and back, up and down, twisting, diagonally, etc.

-Balance & coordination:  multi-plane, multi-directional exercises challenge balance and coordination in a way that traditional resistance training doesn’t.  This improves everyday-movement, body awareness, and reduce risk of injury.

-HIIT (high-intensity interval training):  by doing high-intensity, low-impact exercises, we upgrade our calorie-burning system by building metabolism and shifting the hormonal balance. Research shows that hormonal change happens when we activate and engage all 4 types of muscle fibers, through increased intensity and resistance.  When we do this, our bodies produce clog-clearing hormones, such as epinephrine, adrenaline, and growth hormone, all of which free up energy currently stored as body fat.  This elevates your metabolism, improves your cardio-respiratory strength, and creates lean body mass.

What people are saying:

“Lauren is very intuitive –  she challenges me so I get a great workout.  I wanted to boost my exercise routine, so I started working out with her 2-3 days a week and it was just what I needed to build strength, confidence, and physical health.  What I love most about working out with Lauren is the diversity of the program – no workouts are alike, which keeps every training session fresh and inspiring.  Each workout is the optimal blend of aerobic, core, and strength-training that leaves me feeling healthier than ever. She provides encouragement to push my workouts, yet not to the point of compromising form or risking injury. Her warm and engaging personality allows us to converse about a variety of topics making the workouts fun and as social as we want while working up a sweat.  Lauren has extensive knowledge and interest in a lot of areas of physical well-being and no workout goes by without learning something new that will improve my health.”

“I’ve trained with Lauren regularly since August, 2013. She is an excellent trainer, has a positive attitude and optimistic outlook. Besides these important attributes, each training session is different and unique so that I don’t get in a rut.  I’d highly recommend contacting Lauren to get started on a program that you can stick with.”
