About Lauren

Lauren grew up as a competitive figure skater, gymnast, and dancer, winning dozens of titles throughout her teenage years.  She began weightlifting as a teenager and started competing for the National Physique Committee (NPC) in 2009 where she earned her status as a national-ranking figure competitor.

Lauren specializes in a wide range of training modalities, including: weight-loss, bodybuilding, rehabilitation, sports nutrition (and custom meal plans), kettle bell training, pre and postnatal exercise and nutrition, bikini and figure show prep, and sport-specific athletic training.

Her range of experience and expertise is vast. She currently works with teenage athletes and pop-singers, pregnant woman, weight-loss clients, diabetics, bodybuilders, professional athletes, people suffering from chronic pain and illness  (various types of cancers and Ehlers-Danlos Sydrome), discectomy patients, 70-year olds in need of hip and knee replacements, and yes, even a lovely 85 year-old man with Alzheimer’s (and Freddy never forgets her).

Lauren Kern is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with the NSCA and a Certified Personal Trainer through NASM. She is CPR and AED Licensed and Privately Insured.

Everybody faces a different challenge and Lauren is the woman who can help conquer all.  Her approach is always well educated and well rounded. Her level of experience and her consistent positive energy are just added bonuses J

My favorite client story

Too many!!! And I refuse to exploit my clients. Let's just say that I've been featured in Shape Magazine for a client's 100 lb. loss success story, featured on KTLA and ABC News for my expertise, and that I've worked with one of the most successful baseball players in American History and one of the biggest TV Producers in World History. One of my clients of 10 years might belong to a forever-famous boy-band and I can never tell him that I secretly crushed on him as a teenager. And that's just to name a few.... Welcome to Hollywood!

LEGS, LEGS, LEGS! My cardiovascular powerhouse!
