"Laren is an exceptional teacher and I don't state that lightly. I am a PhD in Exercise Physiology, train Olympic athletes for the USA Triathlon Federation and have supervised biomechanics and strength training programs for athletes for many years, and on the personal side am a long course multi-sport athlete, therefore my standards are very high the rare times I work with someone. My goals were specific strength building along with flexibility. His use of body weight approach was correct and precise and I started to see the changes within a couple if weeks. The 3 months I worked with Laren put me in the best shape I had been in almost 10 years and would have continued with him had he stayed in Florida. He is professional in his approach and he aptly conveys exactly what he wants from the student. He is by far my favorite teacher."Connie SolConnie Sol, PhDcClinical Exercise PhysiologistMiami VA Medical CenterNOVA Institute for Neuro-Immune MedicineCoach USAT Paratriathlon Team USA 2013
"Laren is a very challenging personal trainer. I learned a variety of strength moves from him. We started out with very basic moves, where I learned some key techniques in order to have a foundation to build on with my future training sessions. It is amazing how much I thought I knew about doing a squat, but quickly realized that such a simple move is actually very complex.
Most importantly, I learned how to control my breathing and my mental stamina, which has led me to take on many endeavors in all aspects of my life. I highly recommend his training to any person at any fitness level. He is very good at tailoring the workout to your specific needs; you will see results in your body and it will help you improve your overall well-being."Kasey Moreland"Training with Laren is an interesting and eye opening experience. I came to him to improve my running, but he never once trained me in any running, but my running improved dramatically through strength and balance training and by increasing my overall physical attributes. He has taught me that there is more to running than running, and more to fitness than fitness. He is a very intense trainer that emphasizes the mind and the body."Michelle Sabin
