Hiiiii, my name is LCK (my pronouns are she/her). I graduated from Illinois State with a Bachelors in Food, Nutrition, and Dietetics and have been in the nutrition/fitness coaching space for 13+ years now.
I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in my late high school years. It led me to pursue a higher education to not only turn around my own health, but help others in my position never be in my position.
I’ve written hundreds of educational blogs, published multiple ebooks and nutrition programs, featured on live TV and printed in magazines, guest speaker on numerous popular podcasts, design and print apparel + custom merch, love creating Youtube content, and recently began fashion blogging.
One of my proudest accomplishments has been founding the amazing community that is Paragon Training Methods. We’re proving to be a force to reckon with and working hard to make waves in the nutrition + fitness industry.
At Paragon, we believe strong + confident looks good on everybody and every body and that the way you eat/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.

From 2014-2017, I was deep in competitive CrossFit. I treated my body like absolute garbage and spent years under-eating, obsessing over my abs, not sleeping, training for hours and hours on end, and subscribing to the “no rest days” and “more is better” mindset.
I was terrified of eating food, terrified of gaining weight, terrified of taking rest days, and lived in constant war with my body.
In 2016, I tore my shoulder competing at CrossFit Regionals. When I had surgery, all the years of chronic under-eating + over-exercising finally caught up.
I couldn’t work out. I was gaining weight. I had lost my identity as an athlete. My hormones, thyroid, adrenals, and gut health were a mess… and surgery was the best thing that ever happened to me.
I started working with Bryan Boorstein when I was cleared to workout again. And we tediously worked together to find workouts that would let my body heal, get my hormones in check, and help me look/feel good again.
There was a lot of trial and error. But we found a unique way of programming that did exactly what we wanted it to. And that was when we knew we had to share it with the world.
With Bryan’s extensive background in programming and my formal education in nutrition/dietetics and 13+ years of coaching, we’re effectively taking the confusion of the fitness industry and helping thousands of people around the globe find better harmony with food, exercise, and their body ♥️
