Lauren Truslow is a busy mom of four who has turned her passion for empowering women into a collective of businesses helping women carve out space for themselves.
Since opening her first fitness studio in 2014, Lauren has built a vital community of women and wellness in Columbia, SC. One studio grew to two before she further broadened Columbia’s wellness offerings with two boutique nail and skin salons. Lauren’s passion lies in not just helping her clients achieve a heart-pumping workout or a glowing manicure, but inspiring their glow from within.
Surrounding each of Lauren’s ventures is an emphasis on self-love and a belief that women can be our best selves when we build healthy rhythms into our lives. And that’s exactly what her newest business, The Plan line of planners, is designed to support.
Lauren is a graduate of the Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina, a mentor, and an active member in local service and business associations. In 2023, she was named Woman of Impact by the local chapter of the American Heart Association.
Prior to stepping out as an entrepreneur, she spent seven years in pharmaceutical sales.
Lauren frequently speaks to young women at her alma mater about loving themselves, finding confidence and creating space for what feeds the soul.
The Plan is a line of planners that goes beyond traditional features. Women take care of everyone around them, and often times they fall to the bottom of our to do lists. I have created a space for schedules and to do lists, but The Plan also has space to take care of ourselves physically and mentally.
'The Me Plan': a structured approach to making self-care and doing things you love a part of your daily routine. From goal setting to daily wellness tracking, The Plan helps users ground themselves in what matters most—and organize all the rest.
A Girl in Sweaty Spandex is the counterpart to The Plan. In this podcast, Lauren shares her experience as a fitness studio owner and instructor who’s spent the past decade birthing businesses and babies in a culture that wants to break women down and say they’re not enough. She's over that and you should be too!
Join Lauren as she gets real on deleting impossible standards, embracing what’s real, and turning up the positivity on the life you want to live.
