More About Coach Lauren

I am an ACE (American Council on Exercise) certified personal trainer and Team USA competitor in short-distance triathlon. My specialties are teaching proper running form and introducing shy newcomers to formal strength and conditioning work. I believe in empowering youth and fellow women to become stronger, more confident, and more injury resistant. 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 athletes of high school age and older who are looking to increase their strength, balance, flexibility, and overall fitness and sense of wellbeing. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned athlete, I am eager to help you set and work towards your goals. My philosophy is that learning to become fitter 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 am a proud owner of a double bodyweight deadlift PR.

I don’t believe in cookie-cutter plans because we aren’t cookie-cutter people. Client input and feedback is very important to me. After our first meeting, I will design a customized plan for you based on your specific goals, abilities, and time frame. Each workout, however, will include:
-- Dynamic stretching and plyometric drills
-- A structured workout adapted to a client's individual strength or cardiovascular fitness goals
--A watchful eye, friendly motivation, specific feedback on form as needed, and recommendations for home practice

Client Reviews

Lauren is a great swim coach. She helped me improve with my technique and to increase my ability to go the distance for triathlon swims. I would recommend her to anybody looking to improve their swim skills.

It's been one month since I've met Coach Lauren and in that time I've made improvements in both my overall physical fitness as well as my run time. Working with Lauren is great because of her personality, she's calm, optimistic and respectful of your current status and pushes you to help reach your goals. Another thing that sets Lauren apart from other coaches is her multifaceted experience with runners ranging from younger and less experienced people to runners that have completed multiple 5K's and even our members in the military. I would recommend Coach Lauren to anyone of any age or experience and I myself will continue to work with her.

Lauren has been wonderful helping my daughter train!

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!

(no details provided)

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.
