Lauren has been a Personal Trainer since 2017. She discovered her passion for fitness whilst at the University of Michigan, realising how much people's bodies are capable of after being pushed as an athlete herself.

What is your favourite lift?
My favourite exercise is a Turkish get up because it is a fully body exercise which requires good technique in order to execute. I also think it’s a great exercise because it follows lots of functional movement patterns which are important to practice and strengthen as we age.
Who is your fitness idol?
I wouldn’t say I have one specific fitness idol – I like to look for inspiration from multiple different areas of fitness and different fitness people because I think you can always learn from different methods and different people so I like to keep the term “idol” loose.
If you could only use one piece of gym equipment for the rest of your life, what would it be?Kettlebell – in my opinion it is arguably the most versatile piece of equipment there is and it’s a piece of equipment that you can use to train the full body and its compact so if I’m only going to have one piece of equipment for the rest of my life at least it won’t take up loads of space!
