My Journey

From skinny & unhealthy to WBFF Bikini World Champion

Lauren Simpson Journey

My journey is a little different to the ‘lose weight, get fit’ transformation story. I am not someone who has ever been overweight. I took things to the opposite extreme. I was skinny, exhausted and had an obsession with body image and being lean. This eventually took a toll on my health. My transformation is from being skinny, unhappy and unhealthy to being strong, confident and full of life.

My Transformation

If we take a quick trip down memory lane, you’d see that I was a shadow of the woman I am today. I won’t lie - I was unhappy and unhealthy. My body fat percentage was extremely low, and I was constantly putting up with a mental battle day in and day out.

My Transformation

'We are only limited by the size of our dreams.'

Countless hours were spent on the treadmill, I was undernourished, didn’t give my body the proper fuel it deserved and would ignore the advice from concerned family and friends. When it came to food, I thought less was more, and I became anxious when I missed training twice a day.

As you can imagine, my mental health, relationships, and physical health suffered. It had hit home that I needed to take a step back and work on myself from the inside out if I wanted to regain control of my life.

Finding the right coach

So early on in my transformation, I found a coach who initiated my education on the truth about training and nutrition. I learnt that I was seriously under-fueling my body with nutrient-poor foods and that I was overtraining - and these two things were undermining my goals and my health.

The new strategies I started implementing immediately had a positive impact on my mood, my energy levels, my overall health, and of course, my physique. Shortly after this huge turnaround, I was hooked! I knew I was finally honoring myself and I decided to take a step that would change the shape of my future - I entered into my first fitness competition!

Becoming WBFF Bikini World Champion

In September of 2018, I was crowned WBFF Bikini World Champion - a dream of a lifetime. It took a lot of patience, consistency and trusting-the-process to get to where I wanted to be by the end of my prep phase - mentally and physically.

My Journey

To be given the privilege of sharing the WBFF stage with some of the most beautiful and inspirational women on the planet was an incredible honour. And through Lauren Simpson Fitness, I have been lucky enough to share the physical, mental and emotional journeys with my clients from all over the globe. I am so grateful to have been blessed with a platform that allows me to spread female empowerment and love.

'To be an empowered woman means not only believing in yourself but those around you. Empowered women empower women.'

From Then To Now

From Then To Now

Passion + Hard work = Results

I’ve realised that no matter where I am in my fitness journey, it is always a learning curve for me and that there is unlimited potential to learn and grow.

I turned what was an unhealthy obsession with appearance and weight into a fierce passion for bodybuilding.

It’s not without hard work, innovation and dedication that will get you to your goals.

This journey has taken me from being lethargic, unhappy, even lost, to a woman that is driven, motivated, energetic and healthy.

Empowerment through coaching

As a coach, my core beliefs revolve around mindset, consistency and discipline. With the correct training & nutrition, I was able to transform my shape. If I can do can too!!

Today I aspire to promote female empowerment and positively impact the lives of girls from all around the world.

This is a lifestyle to me and I genuinely LOVE to train and eat well to fuel my body. I indulge when the time is right, and I live to challenge myself daily. I try to approach each and every day with the goal of growth and learning.

'The only person you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday!'

Life is unpredictable and you never know what is coming next, Don’t ever get too comfortable. Learn to get comfortable with the uncomfortable. That’s what I teach my team of #lsfbabes everyday. Don’t be afraid of a challenge. Challenge equals growth.
