Meet Lauren.


Lauren Hoffart
Running + Endurance + CPT

I began running about 9 years ago. I started by training myself for a 10k then quickly started training for half marathons with my sister and brother-in-law. I finally decided that I wanted to run a full marathon but wanted to run it for a cause. I ran my first marathon in 2013 at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. It was tough and I said I would never do it again. However, here I am seven full marathons later and still signing up for races. Three of those full marathons are World Majors including; Chicago 2013, NYC Marathon 2016, and Berlin 2018.

I think I continue running full marathons because every time, no fail, I can’t believe that I can say “I did that!” About two years ago I added cross training into my regimen by joining Camp Gladiator, an outdoor group fitness program. I loved it so much that I am now a trainer for them. About five months ago, I got my personal trainer certification to train athletes just like you! I always knew I wanted to do something with fitness but never knew this is where life would take me! I would not have it any other way and I absolutely love what I do. I can’t wait to share it more with you.
