Meet Lauren! This fun-loving, weightlifting enthusiast is one of our newest trainers and we're SO pumped to have her in the REBEL family.
Lauren is a Chicago transplant that attended college at the University of Iowa. Her story will feel familiar to many - Freshman year she gained the "freshman 40". After figuring out how to lose the weight and get in shape, she fell in love with the process!
Now she has gone from powerlifting to competing in triathlons. Her style of training is functional and fun. Health and fitness has changed her life for the better, and she wants everyone to experience how fun working out and bettering yourself really can be!
So, tell us about yourself Lauren:
1) What inspired you to join The REBEL Workout and how long have you been a part of the business?
I have been a personal trainer/group fitness instructor for the last two years, though I started my own fitness journey about six years ago. I wanted to join REBEL because it really is the total package. From the trainers to the classes, REBEL knows how to do it right! I am honored to be a part of this squad.
2) What does a typical day look like for you?
I wake up around 5:00am everyday, stretch and meditate. I usually do a lift of some sort, get coffee, and head out for a loop around wash park. If I'm not teaching, I head out to the mountains for a hike. In the evening I take a yoga class or teach, then eat a fire dinner and wind down for the night. You can always catch me sleeping at around 9:00pm. I mean it's a hard life, but someone has to live it (lol).
3) What is your favorite part of working at The REBEL Workout?
The bad ass community. From the trainers to the clients, everyone genuinely wants to see everyone succeed and crush it. I love the positive atmosphere. :)
Now for the fun part: Lightening Round
