You may not recognize this badass mountain biker as the same smiling face greeting you at the Front Desk this summer. She is one in the same, and in fact, there isn’t much this baddie doesn’t do!
We first met Lauren a decade or so ago when her mom first joined us as a member. Let’s get to know her a little better:
Student + Front Desk at Farmgirlfit
My mom started lifting here when I was little and would drag me along to hang out in Farmkids, then eventually I could start doing workouts with her, then this summer I was looking for a summer job and got the opportunity to come work at the purple gym!
My mom introduced me to Farmgirlfit when I was young, and it really stuck with me. She taught me the importance of working hard and being strong, and I've carried that mindset ever since. What I absolutely love about Farmgirlfit is that the workouts are all about embracing challenges and growing from them. They are also optimal for everything else I love to do. I love being outside exploring. I race mountain bikes, backcountry ski, snowboard, run, backpack, and enjoy rock climbing and climbing as many mountains as I can!
I stumbled upon gravel mountain biking and couldn't resist the temptation. So, without a second thought, I 'borrowed' my dad's trusty cyclocross bike and dove headfirst into a 100-mile bike race. It was a hard challenge, with the longest distance, toughest terrain, and most insane elevation gain I've ever experienced. That ride really put my toughness to the test, pushed my limits and left me feeling incredibly accomplished.
My next health and fitness goals are to be strong and fit for my cross-country, enduro, and downhill mountain bike events and races this summer.
I love any partner workout! I don't enjoy overhead press 😏🤣
I try not to think. I just try to zone out and enjoy the suffer.
The community and getting to grow up and work with such strong badass women.
Growing up around strong badass women has definitely influenced who I am and has inspired who I want to become!
Pump It Louder – Black Eyed Peas and Tiësto
I am usually studying, playing guitar, painting, with friends, mountain biking, or doing some sort of sketchy adventure.
I love music and record my music and perform around town singing and playing guitar.
A helicopter pilot and fly around the world. This is still my plan after graduating high school next year.
My parents. They are the most badass and hardest workers I have ever met.
Christmas because of how magical and cozy it is, plus of course skiing on winter break.
Protein oatmeal with Justins honey peanut butter and blueberries.
Don't look at what the workout is the night before, just show up!
