About Me

Hi dolls, thank you for following... I will tell you a little bit about myself.

My name is Lauren and I am 23.


Some of you may know me as FitnessBarbie.


I have worked in the health/fitness industry for almost 4 years.

My boyfriend's name is Anthony.
We've been dating for 7 1/2 years.
He also works in the health and fitness industry.
He is my greatest support system.
He has taught me all I know about nutrition, working out, and supplementation.


I have a passion for health and fitness.
I began working out regularly when I was 15.
I love running; I am definitely a cardio bunny.

I live for weight training.


I never liked the look of "skinny" & prefer curves made of muscle.


I believe if you look good, you feel good and when you feel good you look good :)


Most of all, I love inspiring and motivating others to achieve their own health and fitness goals.
I believe in keeping fitness fun and making health a lifestyle.

Thank you for following!

  2. Hi girl!! I love your blog! I follow you on IG too! I am really looking to get into lifting. Right now I do both running and lifting and its not really working out! I was wondering how long your workouts usually are? And how much cardio I should do? Thanks so much!

    1. Hey!

      Thanks for the support and the nice comments :)

      My workouts are usually right around 45 minutes (weight training and cardio)
      Also, cardio amounts really depend on person to person and how they react to it. Some people can get away with doing very little and others need a lot more. Personally, I like to do cardio 3-4 days a week. I switch it up between HIIT and steady state cardio to keep my body guessing!

      XOXO,
      Lauren

  8. There was a post on your blog and I can't seem to find it now. I tried the search field but to no avail. You posted a workout rotation and mentioned to always stick to it so if you had to skip a day, you would just go to the next body part in the rotation. Does that ring a bell at all? Can you point me to that post or let me know what the rotation is? I thought there were 5 strength days, 1 cardio + abs day and one rest day... or maybe it was 4 strength, 2 cardio + abs, and one rest day...

    1. I think I know what you may have in mind. I believe this was regarding my workout "split" which is basically just my rotation of muscle groups. I use what I call a rolling rotation, so I don't make Monday legs just in case I don't get to the gym on Monday, then I would just pick up with legs on Tue.

      I no longer use this split, but this may be what you were thinking??

    1. I currently do not offer personal online training/meal plans; instead, I do my dollar a day program where you can download expanded versions of the free workouts I share and they include training tips. My weekly meal plans for $3 are a great place to look as well!

  11. Can i just ask how tall you are? Do you think it is possible to get as long and lean with a very short frame?

    1. Absolutely - I'm 5'7'' but height is by no means a limiting factor on leanness; body fat can be decreased to the same point on two different individuals (short or tall)!

  17. Hi. I just started following your blog and tried downloading a meal plan. I saved it to my desktop but every time I tried to look at it, I had to download it again. Now it says that I have no more downloads left. Is this how it's supposed to work or am I doing something wrong? Do we not have it permanently once we purchase?

  18. Hi, my name is Tricia and I just came across your blog. I must say that I am highly impressed with your physical fitness at your age. I know age has nothing to do with it but most 22 yr old girls do not have the amazing muscle content that you do. I read your blog and see you began working out when you were 15 yrs old and I know it takes years to build muscle. So good for you for starting so young and sticking with it!

  21. I have a couple of questions for you.. or anyone who sees this post really. I was wondering how you put so much variation into your workouts? . Like one day is chest and triceps and the next is back and biceps and the next is legs. How often is it ok to substitute in circuits? I am more of a cardio person and using my own body weight so I feel more apt to do that then actually weight train but I am trying to start getting into weight training and I wasn't sure what was appropriate.

  25. how much do you charge for personal workout plans? I am very active but recently I have been slipping and not finding that motivation. A recent visit to my doctor showed my sodium is high again and all the bad stuff is borderling at the max and my proteins, and such are pretty low. I have a bad metabolism so i gain weight fairly easily. What can I do and do you do personal help?

    1. Hey girl,

      sorry to hear about your resent doctor visit. I do not do personal diets and to be honest I think the best thing for you would be to see a nutritionists because they will be able to help you get your levels back in check.

      Best of luck girly and keep me updated!

  29. Hey Lauren,

    I have a question - I bought your meal plan and work out log.

    1) does the meal plan and work outs change every week?
    2) do you do cardio after every weight lifting session if its not included in the day?

    thanks

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hey Jonelle!

    Yes, the meal plans and workouts both change every week. Very rarely will I ever repeat a recipe on my meal plans and same with the workouts. I believe in switching it up and keeping everything new and refreshing!

    Personally, I do cardio 3-4 days a week for 20-30 minutes a time. Usually it is post workout but on my day off from weight lifting I will always fit one of the cardio workouts in. I hope this helps and thanks so much for the support girl!

  31. I bought this week's menu plan and am soooo excited to try it. I love your blog...very inspiring and helpful. I'd love to know what you think of weight loss products like herbalife or advocare....do you see any merit to them? I lost 30lbs last year by making exercise a priority, but I still have about 65 to go. I know food is what's going to make the difference. Do you think some supplement would help, or just rely on healthy eating?

  33. I just stumbled upon your blog last night! I am so inspired. You look incredible and I am striving for a similar physique. I am a runner, just like you. I am having a hard time though switching out too much running for also incorporating weight training. I saw a previous comment that your work outs are around 45 minutes including both cardio and weight training. I wasn't sure if you had a weekly schedule that would show what type of cardio and weights you will do for that day and the amount of cardio in advance? I would love to start creating a schedule for myself. I participate in a class called "Body Pump" twice a week and I try to do some weights after I finish my cardio, but it is always hard without a schedule. Anyway, sorry for the long post!
