Real Talk with BELLA welcomes CrossFit founder, Lauren Jenai

Lauren Jenai is the co-founder of CrossFit and a health and fitness expert, with more than 20 years of fitness industry experience. She recently founded the app “Manifest” and is a co-founder of the multi-million-dollar CrossFit enterprise and continues to pioneer the health and wellness industry. Now a female powerhouse, the story of how she fell in love with fitness is both inspiring and all-too-relatable. Growing up, Lauren always thought of herself as un-athletic, and personal fitness was simply not emphasized in her family. By the time she was in her late 20s, Lauren was frustrated and ready to make a change. The intersection of fitness and competition was integral to her motivation. However, Lauren is the first to acknowledge that such an impetus is not for everyone. She launched her new health and wellness app “Manifest”, which considers the individual before the goal. “Before you can make a change, you have to really know who you are, where you are, and what you want. Manifest creates a space that further your understanding of your body and your health journey, holding you accountable all the way through. She regularly practices Brazilian jiu-jitsu at home and has shared her love of fitness with her four children.
