About Lauren

I am a USAKL Certified Kettlebell Trainer based in Long Beach, CA. I have been working with kettlebells since October 2014, and I truly love kettlebell lifting and unconventional training. I have always been passionate about exercise and movement; I was in multiple dance classes for 14 years, I learned the mechanics of working with a barbell after college, and I have done different types of unconventional training for several years. I have worked with the barbell, kettlebells, the mace, Bulgarian Bags, and several other unique and functional tools. I received my diploma in sports nutrition and am so excited to help people dial in to what their body needs to fuel them for success.

Whether your goal focuses on training for an upcoming race, fueling your body to perform better in sports and athletic training, or simply getting in better shape to be able to enjoy a happy and healthy life, I can create a unique and individualized plan to meet your needs and help you achieve your goals.

I am available for private training and semi-private training, and I also teach several group fitness classes, including kettlebell classes, unconventional fitness classes, and interval classes.
