More About Coach Lauren

I am a USA Track & Field coach and ACE (American Council on Exercise) certified personal trainer. My specialty is in teaching proper running form. Proper form increases efficiency while decreasing the risk of injury. I’ve been blessed to have learned from some fantastic coaches during my own athletic development, and I believe in sharing what has been most beneficial to me.

I train and mentor runners high school age and older who are competing in distances from the 5K to the marathon. I also coach varsity track and cross country at a local high school. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned competitor, I am eager to help you gain strength, confidence, and additional skill out on the trails or roads. My philosophy is that learning to run better is NOT about pushing harder. It’s about improving your mindset, adopting new mental tools, developing better form, and focusing on quality workouts that inspire self-confidence.

I am two-time USA Triathlon National Championships competitor. At National Championships in 2019, I placed within the top 10 amateur women in my age group from around the country. This qualified me for Team USA and USA Triathlon World Championships held in Edmonton, Canada, in 2020. I have three age-group wins out of three starts in the 2019 Kinetic Multisports triathlon series.

I placed 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 7th in the women’s overall division in road 5Ks throughout Virginia and North Carolina during 2019.
In previous years, I have completed eight marathons, including the Rome Marathon and the Athens Marathon, as well as four half-marathons.

I was a collegiate cyclist at Brown University during the 2015 and 2016 road seasons. I currently race criteriums with the Maryland-based road cycling team PHASE.

I don’t believe in cookie-cutter plans because we aren’t cookie-cutter people. Client input and feedback is very important to me. Each workout, however, will include:
-- Dynamic stretching and plyometric drills
-- Form drills and a structured run workout on a quiet track or trail
-- Strength and core work
-- Static stretching

Client Reviews

Awesome coach, gave me some great tips and drills to work on and explained things in a way that really drove her points home.

Coach Lauren is an amazingly attentive coach! I appreciate that her coaching techniques focus on self-reflection, rather than simple instructions. During my sessions, rather than just tell me what I was doing wrong with my swim technique, she provided commentary that helped me personally identify and understand my mistakes. This has been crucial to my personal development since it has allowed me implement Coach Lauren's teachings during my individual training sessions. Coach Lauren is extremely punctual, communicates well, and is attentive during every session.

Coach Lauren did a great job identifying and coaching me through issues with my running form. I’ll definitely use her again!

I can't say enough good things about Coach Lauren! She helped my high schooler correct his running form, which eliminated nagging pain and made him more efficient (significantly faster). Along with her knowledge and enthusiasm, Coach Lauren brought to each session an attentiveness to and understanding of teen athletes that really resonated with my son. Both his times and his mindset have improved since she began working with him.

Coach Lauren is amazing. My son is a better swimmer, technically, after just one session. We cannot wait for the next session.

Awesome coach. Really attentive and understanding. Coaches in simple but effective ways.

She really studies fine areas to tweak a stroke. Wonderful.

(no details provided)

In just one session Lauren helped me correct a critical part of my stroke. She doesn’t just coach from the deck. She jumps in the water with you for the greatest effect.
