Lauren Hash turned her passion for heathy living into an online personal training startup company, explorWell, while studying exercise science at the University of Utah and participating in programs at the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute.
Hash enjoyed playing sports in high school and college, not only because of the motivating team environment but also because of the great impacts on her health. Previous to her participation in sports, she consumed the standard American diet and didn’t exercise regularly.
“Once I began playing sports and started focusing on my nutrition, I felt all-around better physically and mentally,” she said. “The difference was amazing. I have more energy, can run miles without getting tired, and feel immensely happier when I move my body and eat well.”
Many people, however, are still at the beginning of their health journey, and a lot of individuals may not know where to even start. It can be difficult to decipher what is actually good for the body when society throws so many different fad diets, “health products,” and juice cleanses at each individual seeking to live healthier.
Because of the magnitude fitness and nutrition have had on Hash’s life, she knew she had to create a company to help others become their healthiest selves also. That led her to major in exercise science and to join the Company Launch program at Lassonde, which helped her kickstart her company explorWell. Company Launch gave her the resources and mentors to create a successful company with a strong foundation with limitless growth.
“My primary goal is to help my clients create a sustainable healthy lifestyle that they can follow throughout their life,” said Hash, who graduated from the U in May 2021. “Not only do my clients feel better physically, but their confidence and happiness often increase as they overcome challenges and get the awesome endorphins boost each time they exercise.”
Hash’s passion to help others shines through when she interacts with her clients. She genuinely cares about helping others feel their best physically and mentally.
She recently rebranded explorWell and is currently accepting new clients for personal training, yoga, and nutrition consults. Check out her new website at explorwell.com for free guides and follow on Instagram @explor.well. You can also reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
