The Warrior Performance Team

  Warrior Performance was founded In 2007  with one core mission in mind; to build a temple dedicated to helping people achieve their strength, fitness and lifestyle improvement goals.

Having worked in the fitness industry at a variety of places before opening Warrior Performance, Shannon became frustrated with the options available and realized he needed to create a special place with it’s own personality and mission.

Lauren’s approach to training is to work smarter, not just harder.  Listen to your body and rest when you need rest.  When you can train, make every movement count.  Don’t just go through the motions.  Move with intent and always move well, technique is always the priority over weight on the bar. 

Lauren’s goal is to inspire other women to have a positive self image and healthy attitude towards health and fitness. She encourages people to love their bodies. There are no crazy fads, no quick fat loss challenges, no buzzwords or magic pills, just hard work, consistency and dedication. Having won multiple National & World Records in Powerlifting, Lauren is a living example that anything is possible if you are willing to put in the time, dedication and sacrifices for things you truly want.
