Hi, I'm Laurie!



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 in nutrition 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 have a Bachelors Degree in Food, Nutrition, Dietetics and have been coaching in the nutrition and fitness space for over 15+ years. In 2018, I founded the world-famous online workout company, Paragon Training Methods (:

I love sharing free nutrition and fitness help, we do limited-time apparel drops every few months, and we release new podcast episodes weekly on the Live Big Lift Big Podcast.

In my free time, you can find me lifting heavy, trail running, hiking, wake surfing, skateboarding, and living BIG in California.

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
