The Whole Approach has a new owner!

Please welcome Lauren Blair ACSM EP.

Lauren is a SUNY Brockport graduate with a degree in Exercise Science, and an American College of Sports Medicine Certified Exercise Physiologist.

I first fell in love with The Whole Approach in 2016 as a student at SUNY Brockport when the former owner Karen Blank gave a presentation in class I was taking. After the presentation I applied for, and was granted my final semester internship at The Whole Approach! I was blown away with the kindness and education I was given from all of the clients and instructors during that time. I made the choice to stay on as an instructor and continue to learn and grown at this wonderful studio.

After a few short months, I was promoted to the Assistant Studio Director and was able to learn the business end of The Whole Approach while still teaching the classes I love. Karen and I began to talk deeper about our visions of an exercise studio and quickly realized we shared many of the same values of serving the community. I made the decision to become the new owner of The Whole Approach!

I feel exercise should be a celebration of all you are capable of, and not work to change your body image. I hope that The Whole Approach is a comfortable space for all where each and every client feels empowered.

Although I was not born and raised in the area, I have been absolutely overwhelmed by the support, kindness, and welcoming arms the people of this community have shown to me during this time of transition. Thank you all for making me feel so welcomed here!
