“I’ve been involved actively in team sports and group fitness my whole life. Growing up it was competitive softball/basketball where I truly learned the power of a team and community.
During college, fitness became more for leisure and staying physically fit. As I experienced more group communities of CrossFit, slow-pitch softball and spin classes, I found my inner motivation, accountability and connection that came from my experiences of community with others through movement.I work full time as a High School Counselor with a passion to speak life and hope into the hearts of students and empower pupils to find connection within a community. With the demands of my job, I found exercise as a healthy habit that relieves stress and leads to more advantageous lifestyle choices.
I believe with our one body given; every day we can move is a blessing.
I am excited to encourage individuals to build consistency in physical fitness and feel the ripple effect with their mental health.
When I am not teaching fitness or educating students you will find me with family and friends, in the open air, hiking, on vacation, cooking, or dancing away.

Lauren's first love is long distance running, but after an injury which set her back a few months, VFit helped her stay active and fit through recovery. She still believes that a high intensity cardio class or a run can fix almost anything though!
VFit changed they way Lauren exercised over two years ago and she has never looked back. Lauren loves sharing her joy of exercise with family, friends and working with people of all ages and abilities. It's amazing the changes you can see physically, mentally and emotionally in only 30 minutes.
Along with training, Lauren has been practicing nutrition counseling as a registered dietitian since 2009.

Maria is our resident New England Trainer and VFit's Director of Operations.
With a smile that will melt your heart, don't let it fool you. She'll challenge and motivate you to find the VERY best in yourself each and every class she delivers.
"Growing up in New England, I was very active in competitive sports from a young age.
In college, I began taking group fitness classes and enjoyed the welcoming atmosphere, where my appreciation for group exercise began.
As an adult, I have pushed my physical limits with marathons, bikram yoga, Crossfit and enjoying the outdoors with hiking, snowboarding and sailing.
With two young children, it was difficult for me to find time to fit in my exercise and I was thrilled once I found the online training platform of VFit.
Being able to execute the full workout (commute included) in just 30 minutes was a total game changer.
In my classes, I am taking a little bit of everything from my experience in team sports, to the new moves and challenging routines I’m learning as a group fitness instructor.
I look forward to challenge my students to push themselves during their classes and take that drive with them through the rest of their day."

With my 3 children now in school, I returned to my first career as a group exercise instructor.
Yoga is one of my favorite styles to teach because it has something for everyone. It is healing and strengthening all in one. It truly is the complete package.
When not in the gym teaching, I enjoying spending time outdoors hiking and exploring with my husband and 3 children.
We are avid travelers who enjoy each new adventure that we encounter. All three of my children are very active in competitive sports."
