“Attending Lauren's posing classes had been the best help in further improving my posing and overall confidence prior to my first bikini competition. She gives attention to detail and gives you specific feedback which I love! And the environment in her classes is welcoming, judge-free and something I looked forward to every week. I would recommend any girl planning to do their bikini competition to get help from Lauren, firstly because she knows what the judges are after and posing plays a huge role in this category.”

“I came to Lauren’s group posing classes, not knowing what to expect and wanting to see how I could improve my current posing leading into my very first competition.
Not only did I learn how to emphasise and present my best angles, but she also gave me ‘words of wisdom’ when I was feeling down and helped set me back on track. This was not something I expected out of her classes at all. She was not only the best posing coach but a great advisor. I am keen to learn more from her and will certainly be returning next prep.”

“Thank you Lauren! Thank you so much for all your help with my posing and stage presence!
Being my first time competing, it was something I was very nervous about. As soon as I met with you, I felt a lot more relaxed and even excited about it!
I got so much out of your posing classes and loved meeting with the other girls every week. Thank you for also taking the time to work with me one-on-one, it definitely helped build my confidence and tweak a few things that I'm sure made a difference on comp day. I ended up feeling so comfortable and confident on stage! Looking back at the photos/videos I can't even believe that's me up there and have no doubt it's because of everything you have taught me. Your knowledge and explanation of everything was so valuable.
I already miss our sessions! Bring on the next season!”
"When I had my very first session with Lauren I was SO nervous I couldn't even walk in my heels properly - but straight away she reassured me that with practice and patience I will be posing like a pro in no time!
Lauren went above and beyond - going out of her way to help me with my posing as I live a few hours away from Canberra.
I am so thankful for the tips, tricks and many laughs she provided me - without her guidance and support I wouldn't of been as confident to step on stage! Thankyou so much, bring on the next season and bring on even more posing sessions together!"

“I could not have stepped on stage without the coaching, support and friendship I found with Lauren. This was my first comp, and something I had always had as a goal but never had the confidence to take the step to do. So when I decided I would compete I engaged Lauren as my posing coach, one on one and group lessons. Throughout this time, we built a solid friendship and she empowered me with confidence and strength that I never thought I would have which enabled me to step on stage and totally smash it. She is one of the most amazing and motivating people I know. She will highlight strengths and work with you on areas that need to be improved so that when it’s show time… you’re ready to shine and you feel ready and confident.
This woman motivates me on a daily basis, she has helped me gain self-confidence, and present a solid package on stage and also in life. I can’t wait to start our one on one lessons again, woman you are the best.”
“Lauren took me on only 7 weeks out of my first ever bikini comp. This is not something that many coaches would do or even consider, but due to my unforeseen circumstances she was compassionate enough to give me a go. She was quick in preparing my nutrition and programming. She had to learn my body quickly and was attentive to how my body was responding, implementing changes as soon as required not waiting for routine check in days. I found Lauren very professional, approachable and committed to me and my goal.
I made some huge developments in my body transformation over such a short period, including a loss of over 28cm and also significant positive changes to my mindset, having found the courage to pick myself up and keep pursuing, which instilled such confidence to be proud of what I had achieved. Although I had no podium finishes on the day, my goal was to finish a stage prep journey of which had so many hiccups, proud….and that I did. I’ll be forever grateful to Lauren.
I also did all my posing classes through Lauren….. they were so much fun, everyone was lovely and Lauren answered all our questions whilst working on us both as a group and individually to build up our confidence on the stage. I recommend Lauren to anyone that wants a coach in all aspects of body composition/ transformations/ bikini prep and posing classes. She made my first stage experience positive”.

“If you would like to pose like a pro and look sexy and confident, definitely learn posing with Lauren, she knows her stuff. Lauren is such a beautiful caring and lovely person, you will feel like you are being coached by your best friend. She will point out your strengths and weaknesses and help you bring out the best in you physique and represent yourself in an outstanding way on stage.
For a first timer like myself, posing was the biggest challenge for me, especially in high heels. But thanks to Lauren I was looking forward to each class, had great times with like-minded people, good fun, and was able to relax and learn more about myself and body each time. Her advices are honest and genuine, and every posing class was getting me closer to my goals and building my confidence up. Even closer to stage time, Lauren continued to tweak my posing to what suits my body shape and help me present my muscles better.
I am forever thankful for this amazing, beautiful and strong lady for putting her heart with us and empower us all to become the best version of ourselves and present it well on stage. She made my first experience on stage so special and I had so much fun flexing and showing my hard work to the world.”

"I would like to state – fact, that Lauren’s posing classes are the bomb diggity! You can read all the client testimonials that I am sure she has that detail how passionate and wonderful she is as a human being and that her level of commitment to you as an individual is second to none.
When I sit and think of Lauren though there is something very special that I believe is far more important to point out - the blessing that she has been in my life.
I have competed in two figure contests now and have used Lauren’s classes for my stage prep on both occasions. I love the sport. But to be completely frank, probably 95% of this is due to Lauren and the environment that she supports in her classes. I have so many ‘comp prep’ friends that I made through Lauren and posing class. I have never experienced bitchy-ness from anyone in the sport and I 100% believe that this is due to the professional support and environment in her posing classes; egos just don’t manage to make it through the door. And this is a direct result of the love and care that abounds when Lauren is around. There just is no need for any crap, that’s what results when you are in the room with someone who is fulfilling their life’s dreams and is fully authentic with who they are and how they freely give their time.
It is fantastic to rock up on comp day and already know half of the girls on stage. It means that when you jump on stage you can be confident and just have fun – enjoy the experience as a whole and for the benefit of each other. I have personally tried very hard to follow Lauren’s age old class mantra, “Girls compete, women empower.” This is really what Lauren is all about – empowerment."

“When I started prepping for my first comp I went to posing classes with Lauren. I felt I needed some extra help and confidence on stage. I felt awkward whilst posing and didn’t feel comfortable in my transitions. Lauren not only helped me with my posing technique but she gave me confidence to own the stage and taught me not to worry about anyone else but myself. I made so many valuable friendships through attending Lauren’s posing classes and I can’t stress how much better your comp day is, if you’re up on stage with your friends. Lauren is so energetic, kind and fun! I am grateful I met Lauren, she is a beautiful person and I can’t wait to work with her again in the future.”

“Towards the end of my first competition preparation, I came to the awful realization that it was time to learn how to pose on stage. I have to admit I’ve never been comfortable with these types of things, and I disliked anything that involved modelling, walking on stage, or posing.
I first came to Lauren lacking self-confidence and knowing that I not only needed to learn how to pose somehow, but also that I needed to do it very fast. Her posing skills were just incredible, and her confidence and charisma irradiated everywhere in the room, so much that it was contagious. I now thank you Lauren for all that confidence that you helped me gain, for every single suggestion and correction, because at the end when I was standing on stage I could only hear you say “don’t forget to smile! You can do it!” And I sure did do it walking away crowned the Champion! Now I know that the best trophies are those you win with hard work and next to those that make a better version of you shine! Thank you Lauren!”

“Having Lauren to help coach and handle me through various aspects of strength sports, particularly strongman, has been crucial to my development as an athlete both physically and mentally. Lauren has intensive knowledge and first-hand experience at an elite level that she's helped pass on to me. Utilising this knowledge and experience has made me a better lifter technically and a better athlete competitively. This is present in training, where Lauren has helped me adjust technique to train more effectively, heavier, and with less risk of injury. It's also present in competition when Lauren handles me, from everything to heavier maxes and more efficient warm-ups, as well as what to expect.
The best impact Lauren has had on me as an athlete, however, is mentally. She is an uplifting influence who is very supportive and encouraging. I have attempted heavier lifts than I ever would have before, and succeeded, due to her seeing potential that at that point I did not see in myself. She is available 24/7, whenever I need help, and frequently will go above and beyond what would ever be expected. The most inspiring part of all of this though is Lauren does this because she genuinely cares - She wants to see the best for people and is very selfless in that regard.
In short, Lauren has in-depth knowledge of competing and can successfully pass it on to novice and elite lifters alike. She will always give more than is needed. My experience comes from over three competitions and over a year training with and receiving advice from her”.

“I first met Lauren in 2015 when I returned to the gym after having two kids. She is such a positive force in the fitness community and has personally assisted me on many occasions. From bodybuilding prep, stage presence and posing, training tips and coaching me through my first Powerlifting meet, her skills and enthusiasm can match any challenge. Always generous with her time and energy, she will definitely help you achieve more that you thought you could. I am so grateful for having her support and guidance at my most difficult moments.”
“When I started powerlifting with Lauren, I had no idea what to expect with minimal powerlifting experience. From the get-go, Lauren made me feel so comfortable, taking the time to understand what my abilities were and what I wanted to achieve. Throughout my training with Lauren, her consistent encouragement and motivation pushed me to be my best. I started with little to no strength, and within 2 months I was lifting 150% of my body weight. I am amazed at the progress I've made and have Lauren to thank for being my number one motivation. It is a privilege to train with Lauren and would recommend her to everyone!”

“This ride couldn’t have been achieved without my amazing coach, Lozzie. Hand on heart, one of the most intelligent, genuine and caring people ever. Thank you for absolutely everything. Not only was this a physical transformation and journey, but a huge psychological one as well. I hear people discussing how hard this journey is, but honestly my experience has been nothing short of positive.
You are quite the brain behind the operation and I can just tell your mind is always one step ahead… you are such a force on so many levels. Your passion, knowledge and organisational skills are beyond inspirational. Words simply cannot express my gratitude.”

“Lauren has been a fantastic personal trainer. She approached me and wanted to help me with my goals after over-hearing my struggle with weight-loss which made the journey that bit more special. Lauren has planned my diet around what I like and don’t like – all so easy to follow. Lauren has been extremely flexible with the hours and always has a smile on greeting me before every session. Lauren also has a healthy balance of pushing me to get to my goals but also not pushing me too hard where I want to never return again. I’ve never been able to stick to a gym longer than a few weeks but have been with Lauren for 6 months. Also her support outside of the gym is always appreciated through text messages and always happy to answer and explain questions. Her knowledge of personal training is evident through her passion and successes for competitive power lifting, bodybuilding and gridiron. If you’re looking for a great and flexible trainer, I would recommend Lauren.”
JeremyACT, 2015 (Nutrition/Programming/Personal Training Client)
“I cannot believe that it’s almost been a year since I started training with you. In that time you have helped me stretch my fitness limits by giving me challenging but achievable goals. You continually assess my training needs and lead me through a structured set of routines to improve my fitness. You have pushed my limits and I have seen my fitness and strength progressively improve more than I ever thought.
Through your encouragement and support my confidence has grown and I have undertaken tasks that I never believed I could, including going in power lifting competitions.
Lauren, through your encouragement I have achieved my best and improved my fitness.”
AnneACT, 2014 (Nutrition/Programming/Personal Training Client)
“Lauren has truly shown me what it is to push hard and reach goals; ones I wouldn’t have been able to reach on my own. She is a great inspiration, patiently steers around my injury and fitness level, and provides the most trustworthy platform to work with. Each week I push heavier and harder, and have learned so much about fitness and diet because of her. I am so grateful to have found a trainer who understands my goals and who I owe all my achievements to! Thanks for all your help.”
