ABOUT LAUREN AND KELLY
Lauren and Kelly are sisters, certified fitness trainers, sports models, and former Division 1 Track and Field athletes. With an extensive background in sports and fitness, in addition to a first-hand understanding of hectic and demanding careers, the sisters have joined forces to bring you their realistic and effective approach to everyday working out.
As Southern California natives growing up in an active family, our love for sports began at an early age. Despite our three year difference in age, we were continuously drawn to many of the same sports and activities. After years of competitive gymnastics and soccer we were introduced to track and field, the sport that stole our hearts. After successful high school careers, we were both awarded athletic scholarships to run Division 1 Track and Field. We competed at the University of California Irvine, where we each graduated with 4-year scholar-athlete honors, holding track and field school records. Upon graduation we pursued individual career paths before gravitating back to our love for fitness and beginning the creation of SISSFiT!
After competing the heptathlon in college, I retired six of my events to focus full-time on the high jump in pursuit of my Olympic dream. In order to financially support myself while training, I began a career in sports modeling. After qualifying for the 2012 Olympic Trials, I suffered a devastating foot injury that prompted my retirement as a competitive athlete. As upsetting as my injury was, it allowed me the time to develop my modeling career, which I truly believe was part of a greater plan for my life. Not only did this lead to international travel and the opportunity to work with some of the top sports brands and publications, modeling has also provided me the perfect transition to continue my love for sports. It has allowed me the opportunity to empower women worldwide through the promotion of a healthy and active lifestyle. In addition to sports modeling, I have spent countless hours coaching athletes, training clients, and sharing my fitness knowledge with others to help them reach their goals and maximize their potential. My undeniable desire to continue sharing this knowledge on a larger scale is what prompted the collaboration with my sister Kelly, and thus the creation of our brand, SISSFiT!
Upon my college graduation I entered into the sports modeling industry, but at the time was more drawn to the structure of a corporate career. I dove into my career as a sales rep and found that extensive business travel and a demanding schedule were part of my new norm. I was constantly challenged to improvise and develop workouts that fit into my unpredictable schedule because I knew that maintaining a workout routine was essential to my personal happiness, and would benefit my career and home life. Ultimately my passion towards fitness and helping others along their journey was something that I could not ignore. Though I had little time to spare, I was determined to become a certified personal trainer, and after months of studying became certified through the NSCA. I immediately began teaching group fitness classes before work and on the weekends. As my sales career progressed, I seemed to have become the “go-to” person for creating workouts and found myself developing workouts for family, friends, and coworkers (and loving every second of it!) After multiple years in the corporate world I left my sales career to pursue my joint dream with Lauren; sharing our expertise and passion for fitness with the world by creating SISSFiT!
