More About Coach Lauren

I am an ACE-Certified Personal Trainer with specific expertise in coaching triathlon. My passion is providing peak experiences to adult triathletes who want to ENJOY swimming, cycling, running (and transition!) while improving their fitness and performance.
I focus on teaching and reinforcing proper form in swimming and running.

I believe that most swimming (shoulder) and running (hip, knee, foot) injuries are preventable through proper form and an appropriate build-up of volume and intensity. These two sports should not hurt or cause you harm! With specific movement training, I can help you stop “pounding the pavement” and greatly reduce your risk of injury.

Proper form also results in more efficient swimming or running. Do you feel exhausted swimming just a length or two of the pool? Do you feel stuck in “low gear” when you run? The secret to going faster with greater ease is better form, not necessarily more effort or more miles.

I am mentored by a veteran coach with 30 years of experience, and I have studied the art and science of form for the past eighteen months. I incorporate all that I learn into becoming the best athlete and trainer I can be. I practice what I preach and focus on building the best possible programs for my clients.

During summer 2019, I completed a coaching internship through the high-end health chain Sport&Health. I worked with clients ranging in age from 20 to 75. Many clients were relative beginners to running and strength work, though several were more advanced. My approach focused on increasing clients’ overall strength, mobility, cardiovascular fitness, and movement efficiency.
I am currently in a swim coaching internship at an endless pool swim analysis center.

I am two-time USA Triathlon National Championships qualifier. At National Championships in 2019, I placed within the top 20 amateur women in my age group from around the country. I have three age-group wins 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.

A typical session will emphasize technique work and short intervals, adapted according to each client’s individual goals and abilities.

Technique work for running focuses on arm positioning, arm drive, “falling forward” from the body’s center of gravity, increasing stride rate, and carrying momentum over the ball of the foot.

Technique work for swimming will depend on the specific needs of the client. I teach adult learn-to-swim -- beginning with getting into the water -- all the way up to advanced stroke mechanics.

Each drill I use has a specific teaching purpose, applied to each individual client. I don’t believe in assigning drills for the purpose of “going through the motions.” Instead, I watch each drill carefully, provide correction, and teach each movement pattern with the goal of faster, injury-free swimming or running in mind.

The short intervals are then opportunities to apply the principles of the technique work to intentional, high-quality swimming or running.
