You probably haven’t heard of Lauren Kleban.
That’s a good thing for the much-requested celebrity trainer, who holds classes and training sessions with L.A.’s elite from her small private studio in Hollywood. Part of the reason her clients love her is because she’s not interested in being a famous workout guru—all she cares about is giving her clients their best bodies possible. How does she do it? A combination of dance-based cardio, trampoline cardio, and muscle sculpting with light weights help clients quickly torch some calories and whittle their bodies to red carpet-ready status.
Even though Kleban doesn’t look a day over 18 (seriously, it’s unfair) she’s actually married and a mother to two little ones. Balancing a successful business and motherhood ain’t easy, but Kleban flows through both with grace and ease. We caught up with the fitness powerhouse to learn her secrets.
