Lauren Updyke, MS ACSM HFI Assistant Director


Hi everyone, I’m Lauren, the assistant director for The Whole U Program. I have spent 17 years of my career in Health and Wellness.  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 managed the Wellness program at Duke University and Hospital for 13 years as fitness and health education manager. I’ve been at the UW for nearly four years and 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 five 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, travelling with my husband and two kids, or racing from one kid activity to the next 🙂
