Lauren Bolshakov


Lauren moved in 2014 to Charlotte from Columbia, SC. A runner and dancer of Argentine Tango, staying active and healthy has always been an integral part of her life. When she got to Charlotte, she was struggling with an ongoing issue that was affecting her ability to stay active- a torn hamstring that wasn’t healing. In spite of all the personal training and physical therapy, her core, glute and hip strength were not getting strong enough to support the hamstring and the injury kept reoccurring. Finding HSM gave her the workout that did what none of the others could do- and when her hamstring was healed (finally!) she knew she wanted to be a part of the culture and team that was doing such amazing things for peoples bodies, confidence, and health!

“This is hands down THE most effective and fun workout I’ve ever gotten. I’ve run miles and miles, raced and trained, worked out my entire adult life, and danced 4-6 nights a week- all at the same time! And yet, this workout has transformed me in ways that I didn’t know was possible. I am really looking forward to being a part of this incredible team that inspires and challenges people daily; changing bodies and lives and people’s view on working out and working out!”

When she’s not teaching, Lauren can be found in her art studio, on the dance floor, or spending time with her family and friends. She owns and runs Lauren Maurer Studio and dances at Emerald Ballroom in Columbia and Passion for Tango in Charlotte, NC. She’s passionate about helping people find confidence and health through being active.
