Hey there! My name is LCK (my pronouns are she/her).
I graduated from Illinois State with a Bachelor of Science in Food, Nutrition, and Dietetics. I have been in the nutrition and fitness coaching space for 15+ years now.
I was always super active growing up, as I was a competitive gymnast and also involved in numerous different sports.
In my late high school years, I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. It led me to pursue a higher education to not only remedy my own health, but help others in my position never be in my position.
I’ve put out years of free educational nutrition and fitness content, written numerous ebooks and nutrition programs, been on Live TV with Fox News, guest speaker on numerous famous podcasts, have an educational Youtube channel, and also love creating custom designed apparel and merch (:
One of my proudest accomplishments has been founding the amazing community that is Paragon Training Methods. At Paragon Training, we believe that confident and strong looks damn good on everybody and every body, and that the way you eat and exercise should provide freedom and peace of mind.
In an industry that profits off our insecurities and self doubt, I promise to keep doubling down on helping you learn to take up space and love yourself in a world that tells you to do anything but.
Drop your info below to slide on my mailing list. You’ll be the first to know when I drop new products, programs, and merch. You’ll also receive a free download (:
