Lauren

Dance Instructor

Lauren Michelle Morgan was born and raised in Philadelphia. After graduating Eastern University with a degree in education, music and dance were always present in the classroom for Lauren as an educator for over 10 years. Lauren used movement and dance for young children to enjoy learning. Leaving the education field to pursue dance and fitness began with obtaining a Zumba license in 2014. Along this journey there were also several lead roles in Freedom Theatre productions including Black Nativity, which led to the ultimate desire of using the platform to inspire and impact others. Her upbringing and roots in African dance give each class a unique flare. As a new mother, who danced all through her pregnancy, dance is even more important as she lives to dance and dances to live. Lauren’s biggest mission is to empower women through dance, which is why she was overjoyed at the opportunity to teach at Next Level Personal Training which is exclusively for women!!!

KAREN

Fitness Instructor & Personal Trainer 

Hi My Name is Karen Yeagins and  fitness my biggest passion. I started my journey with just going to the gym to workout not even knowing that this would be my true love. I was so taken and amazed with the way the body functioned, I wanted to take it a step further. I took the next step to becoming a certified personal trainer and received my certification over 6 years ago.

 

In my time of training I’ve learned a lot. I’ve also made mistakes, which are life's best teacher because you learn where you need improvement.

 

The main reason I’ve continued to dedicate all of my energy and focus on personal training is because I am aware of how it has changed my life and I want that for my clients as well. I love helping people on their fitness journey and guiding them along the way reaching their fitness goals. It brings me joy to bring them into a healthy lifestyle.
