Hi, I'm Laurie!

STRONG and Well-fed


Laurie Christine King

Hey hey! My name is LCK (my pronouns are she/her).

In late high school, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. It led me to pursue a higher education and getting a Bachelors in Food, Nutrition, and Dietetics so I could take my health back into my own hands, and also help others skip the learning curve (and not learn things the hard way, like I did).

I’ve been coaching nutrition and fitness for over 15+ years and in 2018, I founded the world-famous online workout company, Paragon Training Methods. I’m also the cohost of the Live Big Lift Big podcast.

In my free time, you can find me lifting, running, boxing, surfing, skateboarding, playing video games, and living BIG in California with my man and my german shepherd.

The way you eat and exercise should provide freedom and peace of mind. And you don’t have to spend life at war with your body.

♥️ LCK
