What are people saying about coaching from Lauren?

A 6 week INSANITY Boot Camp was just the change my conditioning program needed. I had fallen into a stale boring workout routine. A few of my friends suggested I try out Lauren Phelps Coaching’s INSANITY Boot Camp. The first couple classes were challenging as I grasp the new movements, but Lauren does a great job of offering variations to kept me going with the pace of the class. It only took a few classes to notice an increase in my endurance and agility. Thanks Lauren!!

INSANITY led by Lauren supplemented my walk/running training for local 5k runs. The INSANITY cardio combined with the repetition built up my body’s endurance and core strength. At the end of six weeks, I ran my PR in the Cooper Young 4miler thanks to Lauren and this class!

Lauren is such an encouragement. As a mom with a 6 month old exercise that I feel helps me in my limited time to work out is hard to come by. Lauren keeps you cheerful, excited, and pumped for each work out and the Insanity has improved my body tremendously. If I could only work out once a week, it’d be with Lauren.

Insanity with Lauren has been a fun, exciting way to sweat and workout without the mundane feel of running or other forms of cardio. The exercises force you to use muscles that will help get you toned and looking better than ever! After 6 weeks, I noticed a ton of difference in my legs and abs and my arms are coming along now, too! After two rounds of her 6-week classes, and now I can’t quit.  I’ve made friends in the classes, including Lauren, and I feel great about myself!

Lauren is the sweetest person. She is an amazing coach and trainer. She pushes you to go further than your comfort zone and she does it in such a nice way that you can’t help but to want to keep going. She is always happy and smiling and just so sweet which in turn puts you in that same mood when your around her. I feel like that’s a good thing to be in such a happy mood because it makes you want to keep going and pushing yourself through the workout until you just can’t anymore. I would recommend Lauren in a heartbeat. She’s the best!

I was hardly ever a fan of group workouts and not confident of how I would feel after INSANITY. After six weeks I can see that my legs and armed are stronger, I have more energy for my four month old daughter after work, and muscle is taking over the post c-section havoc of my stomach. Lauren makes everyone feel confident, secure, excited, and able to keep pushing throughout the workout. I look forward to taking INSANITY again with her!

Before taking Lauren’s INSANITY class, I had previously tried INSANITY at home and gave up after three days thinking there was no way that I could do this.  Lauren was able to show me modifications to most of the exercises so that I could gradually work up to doing the full movement. After 6 weeks, I was able to do 26 push-up jacks when I wasn’t able to do even 1 when we started. Her high energy and positive attitude keep you motivated and makes you want to push yourself just to keep up with her.

I am a CLASSIC example of a girl who “let herself go”. During college I gained a little weight, but once the wedding dress came off, the weight packed on! It is so very easy to eat unhealthy food and spend evenings sitting around staring at the television. Once I realized the effects I knew I needed to do something about it, but pinning workouts on Pinterest didn’t do the trick (imagine that!). I tried a MILLION times to fight the battle alone, but was losing, and not gracefully. I currently work with Lauren several times a week and I am halfway to my goal.The hardest part of this journey was reaching out for guidance, but Lauren is without a doubt the key to my success. Positive motivation, exciting, new and sometimes just weird workouts keep me interested in exercising and makes sweating out the bad life choices fun! My time with Lauren is so valuable and I look forward to see where we are in the next six weeks. Thank you Lauren! !

When I first considered working out with a personal trainer I had doubts, but after six months working with Lauren, I am a believer with noticeable gains in muscle definition and losses in weight. Lauren is simply the best! What makes Lauren so special is that she truly cares about people and helping them achieve their goals, she takes the time to carefully craft workout sessions and provide expert guidance, and Lauren makes herself available between training sessions with feedback and advice. Thanks Lauren!

My goal in seeking out a personal trainer was to boost my metabolism and to tone up.  Lauren had definitely helped me achieve both of these things!  Lauren is such a great motivator and really helps with workouts by making then fun!  She is there observing every move during the workout to encourage along the way.  She takes an all inclusive approach by providing not only workout plans, but by reviewing diet as well.  I have been a faithful exerciser and maintained a healthy diet in the past, but Lauren has truly helped me take my health and fitness to a higher level!

I never thought I’d be one of THOSE people who could actually say I enjoyed working out, or eating vegetables, or was just an overall positive person and actually mean it.  That is until I accepted the help of Lauren.  Lauren has helped me live the life that I never knew I could possibly achieve and love.  She doesn’t judge you on mistakes you make or setbacks that you may have along the way.  She has the unique ability to be able to motivate and teach you in a positive way to make healthier choices.  For me, her positivity and encouragement has held me accountable and changed my perspective on life as a whole.  To date, I have lost over 60 pounds, and Lauren has been there every step of the way.  I actually find myself looking for ways to eat healthier or try new things.  I even get excited talking to others about how they can make healthy changes too. Those are things I NEVER thought I would say about myself, but yet I am, and it’s all because of Lauren.  I’m one of THOSE people now and I love it. She has taught me the true meaning of a “Fat Free Friend” – a confidant who pushes you to be your best and always look for the positive. I thank you, Lauren. I will forever be grateful.

If your like me, then living a healthy life style is one of those goals that seems unachievable,  almost like a fairytale. It is something you see on TV and read about in magazines. It is that dream you have where you wake up feeling healthy in your body. Well, I have news…this fairytale dream is very achievable. All you need is the right tools, and Lauren has those tools. Lauren has taught me how to understand food, how to commit to a workout, and how to ask for help when you need it. Lauren’s approach is one of support and encouragement. She will give you new ideas on how to live your own version of a healthy life style. Enjoy your fairytale!!

Lauren Phelps takes coaching to a whole new level while maintaining a practical approach to Health and Wellness. My life has changed so much since I met Lauren. I am working out more regularly, paying attention to what I am eating and have made health a mainstay in my daily life. The outcome is that I feel noticeably better and have more energy throughout the day. Lauren’s nutritional and health knowledge, positive outlook and dynamic personality have been an incredible combination in helping improve my health, fitness and life. She is funny, personable and knows her way around a grocery store…an hour spent shopping with Lauren is invaluably helpful. I recommend her services to anyone who wants to feel better, look better, and lead a healthy life.

It was a great experience working with Lauren. She helped me focus on a few things that really needed attention. They were small but when practiced faithfully, they can make a huge difference. Lauren is a good Health Coach and can help you improve your diet and improve your health. I know I will be a much healthier person as a result of my coaching experience with Lauren.
