Lauren, a Richmond native, fell in love with fitness while she was an undergraduate student at Virginia Tech (go Hokies!) because of group exercise, and specifically, barre. Her interest grew over the years, until one day, she made a resolution on New Year’s Eve that she wanted to teach classes herself. That resolution came true! Lauren is certified as a group exercise instructor through AFAA and holds additional certifications in Spinning®, Les Mills BodyFlow™, and POUND® and is looking forward to adding a couple more in the next year. Lauren loves teaching group exercise classes and meeting and connecting with people, and she also enjoys creating fun playlists! Lauren has been married to her husband, Sam, for three years, and when she isn’t teaching group exercise classes, she works as an epidemiologist with the Virginia Department of Health.
