Lauren's passion for the fitness industry and desire to practice what she preaches drove her to complete her Level 3 REPS Personal Training Certification. Lauren specializes in nutrition using a method called 'Flexible Dieting' - an effective, sustainable approach meaning her clients can maintain a sociable lifestyle, whilst still reaching their health and fitness goals. She also takes care of reverse dieting once her clients' goal condition is achieved to prevent the 'yo-yo' effect, an effect that is all too common with regular diet plans!

With Lauren you will be guided to the best possible version of yourself, inside and outside the Gym, not only by the way you look but also the confidence, performance and knowledge you will gain also.
