Becoming a 10 Time Bodybuilding Champion w/ Lauren Powers  — Real Chalk #47

Lauren Powers is a force of nature. After graduating high school as valedictorian, she got a business degree from the University of Hawaii, owned a surfing academy, and served as a firefighter before making her mark on the fitness industry.

Lauren competed in her first bodybuilding competition in 2001 and has been unstoppable ever since. With ten championships under her belt, Lauren now offers posing clinics, coaches current bodybuilding competitors, and hosts competitions with her company, Powers Fitness Events.

Her namesake competition, the Lauren Powers Classic, is open to all ages and experience levels. In addition to appearing in documentaries and on shows like Botched and My Strange Addiction, Lauren has been a regular on a talk show and landed a number of acting roles.

With such an impressive resume and so many diverse pursuits, it makes sense that Lauren and I talked about, well, pretty much everything. You’ll definitely learn a thing or two from this Real CHALK episode!
