Lauren is a lifelong Saratoga County resident. Having always been involved in sports growing up, Lauren had a strong athletic foundation, but as a young mom of three, she found herself far from her roots as an active kid. On a whim, after the birth of her third child, Lauren stepped outside her comfort zone and joined an adult gymnastics class. This decision proved to be the first step, unbeknownst to Lauren or her family, toward a career in the fitness industry that has spanned nearly a decade. In the summer of 2020, after the Covid-19 shutdown closed gyms, Lauren found herself without a job and lacking direction. Having the time to reflect resulted in the formation of Fox Den Fitness LLC! Located in Ballston Spa, NY, Fox Den Fitness offers private and small group training from the comfort of Lauren's in-home studio. With specialized equipment, a separate entrance, and a private bathroom, the Fox Den combines the effectiveness of a big gym with the comfort of home.
Lauren's career in health and wellness began as an indoor cycling instructor in 2012. Within her first year teaching, she had earned several certifications. Teaching group fitness classes, personal training, and her involvement in Livestrong at the YMCA taught Lauren about the need for individualization in the fitness industry, which is why she offers a comprehensive 30 minute introductory session for just $10! Lauren's certifications include: Certified Personal Trainer; Certified Group Fitness Specialist; Certified Nutritionist; Certified Glute Specialist (you read that right. It's a thing.); Keiser Certified Indoor Cycling Instructor; Certified GTS Instructor; Certified Barre Instructor; CPR/AED Certified.
Lauren understands that adopting new fitness habits can be intimidating and difficult. She strives to create an environment where each client feels safe, comfortable, successful, and has fun! Offering small group and private training, Lauren is ready to meet you where are, and guide you wherever your individual goals may take you!
