Become Healthier
Happier & More Vibrant

“Living holistically fit is all about being fit to live your life, not living to be fit. A beautiful and strong body holds little power if you are too stressed and disconnected to appreciate it. To truly look and feel your best it’s important to nourish and exercise your mind, body, spirit and heart. Your body is just one piece of the ‘happy and healthy’ puzzle.”

Let me take a wild guess… you’ve stumbled upon my site and you’re thinking:

“I clicked on your about page because I . . .
  • can envision the body and life I want, but I need to find someone to show me exactly how to get there.
  • wish being fit and healthy wasn’t all about kale salads and burpees… there’s got to be something better out there, right?
  • know that in order to be the best mommy, wifey, girl-boss or friend I’ve gotta start investing in my health + fitness (but it HAS to fit within my busy lifestyle)
  • am curious what the heck all this Holisticness is about??”
  • was just looking for some juicy deets on your personal life.”

Yay! If any or all of these are “so you” then you are in. the. right. place. + I hope you grab a mug of herbal tea and click around for a while!


I’m Lauren McBride (aka @HoliFitGirl) and It’s my goal to help you discover a WHOLE new you. You know… that vibrant, energetic, slim, toned, confident, heart-centered person that’s underneath it all, SO ready to be set free. That girl!

Fitting it all in isn’t easy though + I get it! As a wife, new momma, entrepreneur, and home owner with two very active dogs with a community of crazy friends and two sides of the family just down the street… (deep breath) I totally get how demanding life can be and how treating ourselves right through nourishment and exercise can easily be set aside and neglected…

As your own busy lifestyle begins to whirl through your head right now, take a deep breath with me…  because I’m here for you!

I can help you…
  • have natural energy like a double shot of espresso
  • effortlessly slip into your favorite pair of skinny jeans and think DANG, I look good!
  • change your mental chatter from being your worst critic into your biggest fan (no more of that stinkin’ thinkin’)
  • discover the EXACT steps to actually start living out your Pinterest board life (hello tropical vacation!)
  • become the best version of yourself and feel an every day sensation of health, happiness and vibrancy


I’ve helped hundreds of women transform their bodies and lives in my 12 years in the health and fitness industry. As a personal trainer, holistic nutritionist, life coach, and fitness model I’ve truly seen. it. all. when it comes to methods, quick fixes, diets, fads, exercise trends… the things that truly work, the things that don’t and things you should burn calories by running away from!

Yes, I have a very unique approach to fitness because I don’t just focus on your body. Your body is only one piece of the “healthy and happy” puzzle. Because what’s the point of having a super fit and toned bod if you’re too stressed out, sluggish, hungry or disconnected to appreciate it?

A better, more beautiful you is
just a few clicks away

I want you to experience a strong body that can take you anywhere you want to go in life, the positive mindset to believe it’s possible, the confidence to do it, and the heart to make it happen!

We only get ONE body in this ONE life… don’t let it pass you by with words of “I’ll start tomorrow”, “Next week I’ll be better”, “I shoulda coulda woulda” silliness. Because as you know, weeks turn into months and months turn into years in a blink of an eye.

You deserve to look and feel your best and I want to help you get there. Through my customized programs, one on one coaching, and eBooks everything is here for you to stop wishing and start MAKING it happen.

It’s hard for me to believe but when I started in the fitness industry over 12 years ago as a personal trainer, I had the typical understanding (and misinformed “knowledge”) that health and fitness was all about “Eating clean and lifting weights”, “calories in and calories out”, “chicken, broccoli + whey protein”, “work out hard and do cardio like crazy.”

With this flawed philosophy I grew my business of happy personal training clients who were losing weight and looking great, I won the “Amercia’s Fittest Model” competition in California (and the next day felt “fat”), began fitness modeling and landing covers of magazines, spokes modeling for various nutrition and fitness companies, ran a very successful boot camp at 5:30am + pm filled with women transforming their bodies with 1 on 1 clients in between, I was working out 6 days a week, sometimes 2x a day, eating my egg whites, chicken and asparagus and protein shakes on the go.
