“I remember the first day I walked into a class taught by Lauren Huber, she lit up the room with her contagious smile and made everyone feel comfortable with her welcoming personality. Lauren quickly became my favorite teacher, as I loved her teaching style, full of appropriate challenges, positivity, and encouragement.

When I had the opportunity to go through Barre Teacher training I was ecstatic to find out that Lauren would be my trainer, especially because I had always admired her teaching style and was excited to hopefully pick up few of her tricks of being an awesome teacher.
Truth is, I learned so much from Lauren’s teacher training. It was a very well organized few days of excellent knowledge covering everything there is to know about muscle groups, the best order of a successful class, and how to communicate and encourage our students, and so much more. I hope that when I’m teaching that I will bring a lot of Lauren’s teaching style with me, as I admire and respect her so much.”

“The first time I saw Lauren Huber was on a larger than life poster on the wall of my local Lululemon boutique. Sometime after, I encountered her as my instructor in a Barre class at a yoga studio where she taught in my opinion, the best and most challenging Barre Sculpt class I have ever taken.   Little did I know that I would soon be lucky enough to work closely with her in the training and development of my group exercise team.  My name is Ani Oksayan and I am the Group Exercise Director for Chuze Fitness, overseeing 13 clubs with a staff of over two hundred instructors. Over the last few months, Lauren has led both Barre Fitness and Sculpt Training workshops for my San Diego team and has created a renewed excitement for these formats in my instructors.

Lauren was incredibly accommodating in the scheduling of these workshops and was meticulous in the planning and execution. She reached out to instructors personally to help them get enrolled and answer questions, included very detailed manuals and music CD’s for all participants and led the workshops with humor, poise and an awe- inspiring knowledge of the material. She led us through lecture, role playing, practice segments and actual workouts that were fun, engaging and very informative, making what was quite a long day seem like an eagerly awaited get-together with a dear friend. Anyone who has seen Lauren has no doubt that this amazing woman practices what she preaches – her discipline and devotion to fitness is evident in both her physicality and her attitude. The kindness, patience and care that she exhibits, leads everyone who comes into contact with her to be inspired and empowered. 

After the workshops, I reached out to Lauren on a personal level for nutrition advice and was amazed to find that she immediately offered to evaluate my eating habits and design a nutritional program for both myself and my son. Despite having the time demands and restraints that we all face with relationships, children and business, she eagerly and graciously helped me with my concerns. Lauren has been the catalyst for a complete turn-around in my nutritional habits and I have so far, lost over 10 pounds following her advice.

I feel fortunate to have met Lauren, a leader and role model, in the fitness industry, and am looking forward to working with her in the near future on several programming projects and the continued training of my teams in Orange County and Tucson.”

“I am an ACE Certified Group Fitness Instructor and have taught yoga for the last 6 years. I wanted to add some other formats to my skill set, and was introduced to Body By Lauren through Chuze Fitness—and I am so glad that I was!

I went through Lauren’s Barre certification at the end of the summer. It was an all day intensive but flew by—it was fun, and Lauren’s warm and inclusive style made the group come together as a supportive unit. We helped each other learn!  After the day was over, Lauren made sure that we all had her contact info and encouraged us to write out our own class plan that week; I did that and sent to her for critique. She is responsive and motivating. I now teach private clients in this format and they love it.

In October I went to Lauren’s Sculpt training—same one day intensive format—I use what I learned in this certification class to add “umph” to my yoga classes—-and I now have the confidence to know that I am able to sub in other formats at the club and will eventually have my own class time slot in a discipline beyond yoga. 

Lauren’s approachable yet professional nature supports an awesome learning environment—she reminded us about how important it is to be aware of how you carry yourself–before and after class.  I think about this every time I set foot in the gym.

Thank you Lauren!”

“I’m a fitness instructor trained in many format. I took Lauren’s Barre and Sculpt training because my group fitness manager recommended it. I was already teaching barre and yoga among other formats and was looking into learning more about these two, since I wasn’t feeling very strong about them. But after taking Lauren’s trainings I feel more confident as an instructor, my classes are more challenging and have better structure . I really learned from her what I was missing. My students are really loving my classes and they are coming back for more! Lauren’s is such an inspiration to me, I highly recommend her trainings to anyone looking to become a great instructor like her!”

“After 25 years as a fitness professional, I have seen numbers of presenters.  Lauren’s Barre and Sculpt presentations were both absolutely wonderful.  She has such a clear and concise way of teaching her material.  Any fitness professional, just beginning or one with many years of experience walks away with hours of choreography, exercise sequencing, and transitional movement.  Lauren’s kind personality and obvious abilities set her attendees up for asking practical questions, practicing sequences to show one another, and then looking forward to sharing their new knowledge with their own classes.  I could take Lauren’s Barre and Sculpt Training sessions again and benefit even more!”
  – Diana Gilbert

“After taking Lauren’s Sculpt training, I feel more confident about the poses and teaching. Lauren is truly so inspiring, from Day 1 when I took her class she is a light of energy that her students cant get enough of. She is very professional, but keeps her classes fun at the same time. I am not going to lie, I was a little nervous about the Sculpt training, but she is so good at guiding you, and making sure to be there every step of the way. Not only can you tell she is prepared before class, she also always shows you ways to modify poses allowing for all levels. Class goes by sooooo fast, its crazy. I feel very lucky to have such a beautiful (and fit) instructor show me how to instruct so happily like her! I love learning from Lauren. Thank you Lauren for everything that you do for us, and our bodies! We love you.”

“Fitness has always been a big part of my life. Over the last ten years I had found myself taking an array of group fitness classes to expand my knowledge and push myself to new limits. I even went so far as to get certified in cardio kick boxing.  It was only six months ago that I stumbled upon Lauren’s Barre and Sculpt classes and immediately I found myself rearranging my schedule to ensure that I could workout with her five times a week. Lauren is by far the most inspiring and motivating instructor I have encountered in my fitness career. Her classes are incredibly challenging but she magically never makes it feel like work. Not only does she encourage each person in every class she teaches, but continues to push each one of us in a way that we want to work hard for her, to make her proud. She takes the time to get to know each one of her clients and holds them all accountable in the best way; with a smile or a wink. I am so in love with her style of training that I asked her to teach me her craft and have since become certified to teach Barre myself. I am so excited to have met Lauren and know that she will continue to teach me more and as I continue to study from her and take every class that she offers!”

“Lauren is the best and most awesome health and fitness motivator I have ever met!

She’s such a fantastic and energizing instructor, taking her class is the highlight of the day!Lauren inspired me to want to become a Yoga Barre instructor after meeting her for the first time and after taking only one of her classes, I was hooked!

I wish I could take Lauren’s classes every day, but since I live in Sweden I’m hoping she’ll have her own fitness program and DVD on Beachbody.com soon! Lauren has pure super powers and I hope she will find a way to reach many more who will benefit from her healthy lifestyle and be able to improve their lives to reach their best possible health!”

“Lauren has such contagious energy that it makes you want to work your hardest just to keep up with her. I’m amazed how I find myself sweaty collapsing on the mat but thirsty for more each week. Not only does she comes to class full of positive energy and smiles but with new choreography and exercises that prove to give results. Her class has been so inspiring to me that I felt I wanted to do the same for others.

I completed the Body by Lauren Barre certification. I learned a tremendous amount and hope that I can someday inspire and motivate others to meet there exercise goals as Lauren has done for me. I have learned that it is possible to sweat and work hard while having fun at the same time.”

“Lauren is an inspiration to the fitness community. Her training is both fun and challenging. Lauren organizes her training so you can learn to easily put together a routine and instruct properly. I left feeling well versed and ready to teach. Lauren’s training is a great step to becoming a successful Yoga Barre or Yoga Sculpt instructor.”

“In Fall 2012, I did the Yoga Barre training with Lauren Huber at Yoga Tropics. Even though it was only one day, I feel that I learned so much! We went over all the aspects of a good Barre class – warm up, cardio, weights, thigh work, and abs. We also spent a good amount of time on the importance of music and learning the counts, which I really appreciated. Lauren provided us with handouts that outlined some common Barre moves to help us plan future classes. Lauren was a great teacher and made the training not only very informative, but also a lot of fun! I would definitely recommend Lauren’s Barre training…I learned so much and I am able to use and build on what I learned when I teach my own Barre classes.”

“The level of professionalism in Lauren’s comprehensive training was absolutely superb. Her positivity and obvious enjoyment for teaching, and fitness as a whole, makes me excited to start teaching! I would recommend Lauren to anyone interested in a certification program or a top notch instructor!”

–      Maggie Knapp

“I had the opportunity to go through Lauren’s Sculpt & Barre training in 2012. The experience was a total blast! Lauren created a simple to follow format that allowed me after two days to lead a fun, well rounded and safe Barre/Sculpt class. It is an amazing, educational program that you can easily deliver to students. Lauren’s enthusiasm for teaching shines and she is brilliant at sharing the tools to guide an awesome class! I would highly recommend her training to any fitness instructor!”
