Lauren earned her Bachelors of Science in 2012 from The Ohio State University in Nutrition and Dietetics. Upon graduation, she worked for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) as a nutritionist. Burnt out on running and gym routines, she finally decided to see what Crossfit was all about. After her first work out at Crossfit Grandview, she was hooked. Not only did she love the physical and mental challenge Crossfit brought everyday, it was also the catalyst for her career interest in fitness and performance. She was accepted to the University of Virginia Health System’s Dietetic Internship, the next step in becoming a dietitian. The internship proved rigorous with extensive clinical training and coaching in a variety of settings and patient populations from athletes to diabetes to nutritional therapy for cancer. While living in Charlottesville, VA, she also provided nutrition coaching and seminars to the members of Crossfit Charlottesville. Upon graduation in June 2015, It was no question for her to join up with her inspiration, Kate Lonsinger Couden, and start pursing her dream job right away as a personal fitness and nutrition coach here at CFGV. Kate and Lauren’s business, Body Biz, values a relational approach to each client’s unique needs and goals with scientific, experiential, and intuitive methods that guarantee success and sustainable results.
