Meet Your Coach

Hi! I’m Lauren, the head coach and owner of Upstate Row. I have an extensive background in fitness and nutrition. From chronic illness due to an autoimmune condition to vibrant health; fitness and nutrition have given back my life. So much so, I decided to get my degree in Nutrition from the University of Colorado.

After spending the last 10 years working in fitness clubs and nutrition coaching, I wanted to try something different. I took a brief two-year break from the health and wellness industry and worked in marketing/graphic design. I quickly experienced what I’ve been hearing from my clients for years– “I’m too tired to workout after a long day at the office” or “I have no energy to cook healthy and meal prep.”

This brief time off was eye opening and provided me with priceless perspective. It not only allowed me to experience a “normal” office job, sitting down for hours a day but it has also given me more compassion and insight on the day-to-day challenges most people face.

So now here I am, settled back in the same town I grew up in–ready to create a healthy, fit community. I couldn’t be more excited!

“My coaching style is both good cop, bad cop. I will challenge you to push beyond your limits, provide support and encouragement.…but I won’t let you make excuses or give up on yourself.  As a fitness and nutrition coach, I am dedicated to empowering people to take their health into their own hands and guide them through the process to live happier, healthier lives.”
