Lauren

Instructor

Inspired by artists like Madonna and Janet Jackson, Lauren has been studying music, musical theatre, and dance choreography since youth. As an adult, Lauren faced the challenges of maintaining a healthy work-life balance and struggled with her own weight management, which eventually led her to develop a new love of fitness. As dance fitness became her new healthy "addiction," she became licensed as a certified Zumba and group fitness instructor. Now her happiest and in the best shape of her life, Lauren’s goal is to provide a workout that her students not only get results but one that they truly enjoy and cannot wait to attend.
