Lauren started CrossFit in 2012 after a friend invited her to participate in a Fight Gone Bad fundraiser and she experienced her first "Fran Cough." Having been an active athlete in high school it was the first time she experienced that same team camaraderie. Lauren loves the feeling of accomplishment and confidence she receives from CrossFit. She believes that CrossFit offers people the opportunity to continue to set and complete goals and that has a positive impact on peoples overall outlook on life. Lauren received her Level I on 2015 and additionally completed Strength Specifics Olympic Lifting Certification.
