LAUREN MILO

COACH

I decided to become a PT after going through my own personal journey, I became absorbed in the fitness world for multiple reasons. It was the transformation I saw not just in my physical body, but my mindset, my work ethos, my self-discipline, that had essentially translated from forming a positive relationship with myself in the gym environment. Now fast forward a few years, my focus is to deliver sessions & knowledge that provide not only brilliant physical results but also translate into the real world, to provide a better standard of living altogether. My job is not to tell you what shape to be but rather to make you feel powerful in your own! So, whether you’re looking to gain muscle or you’re looking to lose some body fat, or maybe you’re just wanting to learn how to move effectively, I will be able to provide you with a tailored program and I’ll be there to guide you through the entire process!
