Lauren Sheehan

Bio
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Colorado State University with a Degree in Health and Exercise Science, concentrating in Sports Medicine, where she studied functional anatomy, nutrition, biomechanics, exercise programming, testing, and exercise physiology. I am a Certified Personal Trainer with the American Council on Exercise (ACE) as well as the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM).

Growing up in Colorado, I grew up with a love for being active. I played just about every sport until I settled on Dancing where I honed my skills in jazz, modern, ballet, hip hop, and other dance forms. Through dancing I found my keen eye for form and posture which drives my training style today.

I became interested in corrective exercise when I injured my left hip and I began to have major functional issues while exercising or running. As I learned more about core and lumbopelvic stabilization and how I could use exercise to strengthen and stretch my muscles and how my dancers background prepared me for a great sense of the "core", which is such a huge fitness buzz word today.

After being a personal trainer for several years and working in "globo gyms" I decided that I wanted to bring a new feeling to fitness. To me fitness is about health not vanity and I wanted my training style and business to reflect that. So I formed Empower Fitness and found Pivotal Wellness where I can work with other wellness professionals who work with people and not just symptoms or problems.
