I found my strength in hormones and you can too
I’m a functional medicine dietitian and a board-certified specialist in sports dietetics living in LA. During my varied experience, I’ve helped women restore their menstrual cycle, naturally conceive after recurrent miscarriages, lose 30+ lbs. (or the last 10 lbs.) and find strength in their female body.
I created the Strength in Hormones Collective to share the transformational message of hormone health to get women unstuck in their well-being journey.
I was where you might be right now. I was immersed in the health world without getting any results and missing out on life because of the unforgiving restrictions I put on myself. It wasn’t only the extra 15lbs. I wanted to kick that was getting me down. I was struggling with constant breakouts, bloating, and an inconsistent menstrual cycle.
So I had to take my health into my own hands. After spending countless years deeply learning and applying the fundamentals of hormone health, everything fell into place. I got down to my goal weight, cleared my skin, soothed my gut issues, and finally had a regular period.
Everything I did to clear up my health issues is included in the Strength in Hormones Collective.
Hi, I’m Lauren but you can call me Lo!
Not only that. I didn’t have to sacrifice my happiness to achieve it. I can have a glass of wine and a gluten free pizza night without being overwhelmed by guilt and dreading the impact it could have on my body.
Simply, I’m able to live and feel my best - inside and out.
Want to know my secret…I couldn’t have done this without the support of my husband
And you get access to his expertise too! I was working out long before I got my health sorted. I just wasn’t working out in a way that supported my hormones. My fantastic husband Joe Gelekto, helped me to realign my workouts so that they supported my hormone health.
He’s got some incredible expertise as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach who holds a Bachelor's Degree in Exercise Science and a Master’s Degree in Coaching Pedagogy. His 10 years of experience have led him to work with various female athletes at the youth, collegiate and Olympic levels and celebrity and executive clients. Following his mission to help individuals overcome their mental challenges with physical activity, he is now the owner of TKO Athletic Performance and works at a health and wellness facility in West Hollywood, California.
I’m so thrilled that he is writing the Strength in Hormones workout programs (and has been for the past 6 years!) which are available on the app with video instructions. He overhauled my workout style, so my hormones could heal, meaning I felt less inflamed, was able to regulate my period and thyroid, and had more energy than ever.
The cherry on top is that I can workout for half the time I used to and get even better results!
Seemingly I was doing everything right - following the exercise, diet, and supplement routines like I learned in dietetics school. But nothing was changing. All the doctors had to recommend was the contraceptive pill.
