Lauren grew up in Fort Collins, Co and moved to the Aspen Valley in 2011. She grew up with a family that taught her the importance of fitness and wellness. She grew up playing soccer and running track and eventually coached soccer in the valley. This sparked her love for coaching.
As Lauren had felt that she had plateaued in her fitness routine and knowledge, she gave Crossfit a try in 2015. Lauren started with Roaring Fork Crossfit and has been here ever since. She received her Level One coaching Certificate in 2018 and is also an NASM certified personal trainer. This opened a door in her law enforcement career to become the fitness instructor for her fellow officers at the Aspen Police Department in 2019.
Today Lauren’s favorite part of Crossfit is how much it has positively affected other parts of her life. She has seen the amazing effect in all of her outdoor hobbies such as hunting, fishing, backpacking and snowboarding. She has also seen the benefits in the Crossfit family mindset; the idea of enjoying the process, constantly improving and doing it with like-minded, healthy people.
