Lauren Evans

ACE Personal Trainer


ACE Profiles |  Lauren Evans

I wake up every day with the drive and passion to help my clients reach their goals, whether it is completing their first triathlon or running a Boston Marathon Qualifier time.

After spending several years in a cubical as a financial analyst, I made the leap into the fitness industry in order to follow my passion of helping others change their bodies and their lives through endurance sports. As the founder, owner and head coach of EFAST (Endurance Fitness and Scientific Training), a fitness and coaching hub based in Reno, NV, I am also dedicated to getting the word out about the many offerings "The Biggest Little City" has to give to endurance athletes. In addition to making sure EFAST runs smoothly, I coach group running workouts daily, teach endurance sports focused strength training classes and coach athletes of all abilities and ages. I hold a Bachelors degree in business administration from Division I Furman University, where I was a full scholarship tennis and cross country athlete. My certifications include USA Track and Field Level II, USA Cycling, Professional Tennis Registry and ACE.
