Level 1 Certificate and CrossFit Kids Certificate.
Hi! I’m Lauren, one of the coaches at CrossFit SPT.
I started CrossFit in 2017 while I lived in Hong Kong before moving to Texas in 2021. Prior to moving to Hong Kong in 2011, I was a pediatrician in Southern California and have a huge passion for wellness and fitness in both adults and children. While in Hong Kong, I also trained extensively in conscious and guidance parenting and currently work as a parenting coach. I have four incredible children…twins, Jack and Luke, Sean, and Kate.
I never excelled in athletics or had a passion for any sports when I was growing up. I began running recreationally in my early 20s, completing a couple of marathons and half-marathons. While in Hong Kong, I also trained in Muay Thai for a couple of years. However, once I finally discovered CrossFit at 40 years old, I was completely hooked!! For someone who never felt confident with anything athletic, CrossFit has given me the opportunity to discover physical and mental capabilities I never thought I had, and I could be pushed beyond anything I imagined. I love challenging myself to hit goals each year, and I am so grateful for the support and encouragement of the CrossFit community.
I obtained both my CrossFit Level 1 Certificate and my CrossFit Kids Certificate in 2021 and began coaching soon after. I absolutely love coaching and am excited to help people at CrossFit SPT achieve their fitness and wellness goals. I am also looking forward to bringing CrossFit to both kids and teens.
