Hi, I'm Aaron! I'm also the Owner and Founder here at F.I.T. CONCEPTS. I started this company out of an immense passion for helping others overcome the difficulties associated with health, fitness, and lifestyle change. Getting to this point was not an easy battle for me though. You could say that Health and Fitness was my personal saving grace!
You see, in 2007 I was involved in a horrific car accident that ended in the death of a completely innocent individual and my incarceration in the Florida Department of Corrections. It was here, in prison, that I found a passion for what I do now. I spent a majority of the nine years that I was incarcerated educating myself in many different areas, but mainly in Health, Fitness, and Personal Development. I read a host of educational material that my family would send me along with anything I could get my hands on in the prison library. As you could expect doing this was not an easy task as the prison environment is not conducive towards upward mobility!
I was released from prison in 2017 and enrolled in a technical school that offered an education in Personal Training and Exercise Physiology. After graduating I took it a step further and pursued an education through The National Academy of Sports Medicine, specializing in Corrective Exercise and Weight Loss. I then attained a Nutritional Coaching certification. My collective education allows me to bridge the gap between Personal Training and Nutritional Coaching, ultimately giving me the ability to better assist my clients.
Since the time I was released from prison I have accomplished so much more than my education and ability to pursue my passion of helping others. Aside from building my business, I've met an amazing woman named Aryssa. We were recently married on October 30, 2020 and bought our first home shortly thereafter. I don't want you to think that I'm telling you all of this to toot my own horn or anything. It is only to show you what hard work, determination, and tons of self discipline can do when applied properly.
I now live my life in a much more positive manner and my personal goal is to help promote the same upward mobility that I have created for myself. One of my personal favorite quotes to live by is that of our U.S. Navy SEAL's "NO EASY DAYS". I choose to live my life in this manner because you never know what life will throw at you or when you will be asked to perform at your peak physical and mental levels. So, by fortifying our bodies and minds, we become comfortable being uncomfortable, and have the mindset that nothing can slow us down, then we can conquer anything in our path!
My name is Lauren Nicole. I am a Personal Trainer, Nutritionist, Certified Mental Health Clinician and Health and Wellness Coach who has been in the industry and transforming women's minds and bodies for a decade!
After battling and overcoming an eating disorder at a very young age, I was determined to figure out how the mind works; what makes us all tick, what are people's, "whys" which lead into their "why not's" and analyzing both positive and negative behaviors.
In 2011 I graduated with my Masters in Mental Health and Psychology. That same year, I was continuing my passion in training, nutrition and coaching. I obtained my Personal Training, small group fitness and Nutrition Certifications in order to help specifically women in several different capacities.
In 2015 I put all the knowledge and experience to the test on myself and took the steps to becoming a female bodybuilder, specifically a bikini competitor. There is nothing quite like show prep. The mental and physical determination required to do this are second to none. One show and I was hooked. Sometimes we need to push ourselves to the absolute limit to really see what we are made of.
Nutrition, training, mindset work need to be completely aligned in my opinion. They are the puzzle pieces of complete success in terms of weight loss and transformation.
Today I help women through training, nutrition, and mindset, helping them realize their full potential and of course losing the weight they desire to in order to be confident and happy in their body!
I am so excited to be a part of the F.I.T. CONCEPTS team and can't wait to start working with you!
