1 on 1 Personal Training
As a C.H.E.K. Exercise Coach, I use a holistic and corrective exercise approach to creating a stronger, more functional body specific to your work environment and overall lifestyle.
Using functional and measurable assessment tools we can evaluate functional deficits and imbalances in the core musculature, reduce physiological load, balance autonomic nervous system, and optimize posture to increase overall wellness.
C.H.E.K. Assessment Designed to assess essential and primal movement patterns that you encounter in your everyday life. Static and dynamic measurements are taken to evaluate posture, joint restrictions, muscular imbalances and faulty movement patterns.
This information is invaluable when addressing pain and injuries as well as creating a workout program for your unique body!

FUNCTIONAL DIAGNOSTIC NUTRITION™
Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN) is a type of investigative work that seeks to identify underlying causes of disease instead of treating symptoms. Using functional labwork and the D.R.E.S.S. Protocol, we can identify healing opportunities to revitalize your hormones, energy, longevity and athletic performance.
Designed to rebuild health from the ground up, your journey will be personalized and curated JUST FOR YOU.
We begin by taking a thorough health history and 1-1 consultation to evaluate personal needs and goals, then create a health-coaching projection including a personalized lab work plan, lifestyle modifications and nutritional opportunities.
Lauren is more than a trainer. I was fortunate to have her as my nutritionist when I was looking to shed some post-baby fat. Coming from a healthcare background, I was skeptical about her methods but they worked! With a fitness regimen, I lost 10 lbs and reshaped my body. Fitness is truly her passion and it shows in how she approaches her clients. She has a keen eye for imbalances and has helped me tremendously on some specific functional goals I’ve been working on such as my posture and push ups. She has been trained in many methods and can provide variety so that you don’t get bored. Most of all, she has a beautiful heart and will take your goals seriously!!
LAB TESTING OPPORTUNITIES
Adrenals / Stress
Feeling tired? Stressed? Or just “not like yourself”? Hormonal problems are extremely common these days, but not normal!
DUTCH Testing is the most advanced hormone test for functional and integrative medical practitioners, especially when monitoring (b)HRT. Precision Analytical is a CLIA certified laboratory run by a small team of dedicated scientists with combined experience of over 50 years in performing laboratory tests and developing novel testing methods. PA uses the most accurate method available (LC-MS/MS and GC-MS/MS) and is used by thousands of healthcare providers and their patients all over the world.
DUTCH COMPLETE: A comprehensive assessment of sex and adrenal hormones and their metabolites. Includes the daily, free cortisol pattern, organic acids, melatonin (6-OHMS), and 8-OHdG.
The DUTCH Plus: adds salivary measurements of the Cortisol Awakening Response (CAR) to the DUTCH Complete™ to bring another important piece of the HPA axis into focus.
DUTCH CYCLE MAPPING: maps the progesterone and estrogen pattern throughout the menstrual cycle. It provides the full picture of a woman’s cycle to answer important questions for patients with month-long symptoms, infertility and PCOS. Nine (9) targeted estrogen and progesterone measurements taken throughout the cycle to characterize the follicular, ovulatory and luteal phases.
Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, ADHD, insomnia, weight issues, fibromyalgia, memory impairment, migraines, or other cognitive issues?
A neurotransmitter imbalance is an underlying cause for the improper functioning of the communication system of the body. Testing may identify the underlying neurochemical imbalances that affect mental disorders.
Neurogistics provides targeted neurotransmitter testing and personalized Wellness Programs, created by experienced clinicians, to provide natural balance and well-being.
MARKERS ON THIS TEST:
GI MAP STOOL TEST
Pathogen Stool Test
Are you struggling with gut distress? Symptoms such as bloating, gas, indigestion, constipation, diarrhea or abdominal pain? Digestive tract infections and dysbiosis create chaos in the gut and lead to a myriad of symptoms in the gut and the rest of the body. Ever heard of the gut-brain connection or experienced brain fog and fatigue? They are intimately connected!
Gut issues affect the entire body, especially the functioning of the brain! This test can identify and recover the presence of gastrointestinal organisms such as gut infections, inflammation and poor absorption of nutrients.
The Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory GI Microbial Assay Plus (“GI-MAP”) includes markers for gluten sensitivity (anti-gliadin IgA), inflammation in the gut (calprotectin), immunity in the gut (SIgA), pancreatic enzyme sufficiency (elastase), and occult blood. It also looks for the presence of pathogens – including H Pylori and other bacteria, parasites, worms and viruses – in the gastrointestinal tract.

Organic Acids Testing (OAT)
The Great Plains Organic Acids Test (OAT) provides insight into the body’s cellular metabolic processes. Organic acids are metabolic intermediates that are produced in pathways of central energy production, detoxification, neurotransmitter breakdown, or intestinal microbial activity. Marked accumulation of specific organic acids detected in urine often signals a metabolic inhibition or block. The metabolic block may be due to a nutrient deficiency, an inherited enzyme deficit, toxic build-up or drug effect. Several of the biomarkers are markers of intestinal bacterial or yeast overgrowth.
MARKERS INCLUDED ON THIS TEST:
INTESTINAL MICROBIAL OVERGROWTH
GLYCOLYTIC CYCLE METABOLITES
MITOCHONDRIAL MARKERS – KREBS CYCLE METABOLITES
MITOCHONDRIAL MARKERS – AMINO ACID METABOLITES
NEUROTRANSMITTER METABOLISM MARKERS
PYRIMIDINE METABOLITES – FOLATE METABOLISM
KETONE AND FATTY ACID OXIDATION
INDICATORS OF DETOXIFICATION
AMINO ACID METABOLITES
Functional Blood Chemistry
Understanding individualized biochemistry and how to effectively correct and optimize brain function through advanced nutrients is essential to optimized health. Regardless of if you suffer from a mental or emotional condition, or if you are just upgrading biochemistry to be the best you can be, functional blood chemistry is the most powerful place to begin.

SIBO Breath Test
The Aerodiagnostics Hydrogen and Methane Breath Testing evaluates whether there is bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine.
Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) occurs when bacteria enter your normally sterile small intestine and begin to colonize. This SIBO breath collection kit comes with either Glucose or Lactulose as a substrate. SIBO is a disorder of excessive bacterial growth in the small intestine. Unlike the colon (or large bowel), which is rich with bacteria. Patients with bacterial overgrowth typically develop symptoms including nausea, bloating, vomiting, diarrhea, malnutrition, weight loss and malabsorption.
