Lauren Updyke, MS ACSM HFI Director

Hi everyone, I’m Lauren, the director for The Whole U Program. I have spent 19 years of my career in Health and Wellness.  I came to the USA from Canada on a track and field scholarship to University of Louisiana. I have my Masters in Exercise Physiology, am a Certified Personal trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine, and have coached over 10,000 individuals online from all over the world. I worked with the wellness program at Duke University and Hospital for 13 years as fitness and health education manager. This is my eighth year at UW and I love being a Husky.

Let me know if you have an idea for an event because we love making this program for UW, by UW. My role is to lead our team of four and provide faculty and staff with awesome opportunities that support them on their health journey! Email me if you are interested in being a Whole U ambassador or if you have a fun idea for us. When I’m not working at The Whole U, I am either training for a marathon, doing lots of strength training, traveling with my family, or racing from one kid activity to the next.
