Q1. Congratulations Lauren! Why inov-8?
Inov-8 has been around fitness and training since day 1. Whether my day involves lifting, running, interval training – there is always a shoe that fits and is useful for all utilities in training. The company has amazing people on board that support athletes and their functional shoe needs!
Q2. What are your goals for the 2019 season? Any competitions planned?
I am currently in the works with a new team for the 2019 season. We will be making our debut at Wodapalooza in January 2019.
Q3. What does a day in the life of Lauren Herrera look like?
A day in the life of ME usually goes two ways. I work 3 days a week as a Paediatric ICU nurse. On those days I include one long 3-hour session of lifting, CrossFit, and/or endurance, gymnastics. On my days off I sleep in to recover my body and split my training sessions into 2-2hr sessions. I am constantly packing and weighing my food but still enjoy my lunch and dinner dates with my loved ones.
Q4. Favourite training shoe?
My favourite shoe would have to be the original F-LITE 195’s. When I first started competitive CrossFit my favourite pair was the bright pink with blue lining. I have begun to love the ALLTRAIN 215 Knits because they are so versatile & lightweight.

Q5. Greatest CrossFit achievement?
My greatest CrossFit achievement has been making my very first Regionals in 2013 as an individual athlete finishing 6th place overall. It was my first year on a strict program and dedicated a big chunk of my life to CrossFit. Other than that- every one of the years being at the CrossFit Games with my team has been a huge accomplishment.
Q6. What’s your favourite workout?
Favourite workout – anything that involves running and gymnastics!
