Lauren Brenner


PowerBox 360

Lauren has spent more than 25 years in the fitness world. She is an Athlete, Entrepreneur, Motivational Speaker, #1 Best Selling Author, Podcast Host, Performance Coach and now…… the creator of PowerBox 360!

Lauren’s eclectic journey took her from a Division One tennis player to a Wall Street Trader spending eight years on the NYSE and obtaining 5 licenses. After 9/11 Lauren believed that people wanted and needed a place where they can come together to become physically and mentally stronger. She combined her three passions of sports, entertainment and business and redefined fitness in 2003. Lauren opened the nation’s first indoor, obstacle-confidence course called Pure Power Boot Camp. PPBC had three company locations and was licensed to franchise in 43 states. Appearing as a weekly fitness contributor on the Today Show and on numerous major networks and showcased in over 26 reality TV shows, Lauren was recognized as “THE” fitness guru and received national and international acclaim. She was named number one entrepreneur making an impact on the nation by CNN and USA TODAY named PPBC the number one franchise to buy. After spending over 12 years owning and operating PPBC, Lauren honed her innate ability to inspire people to maximize their true potential and became a Motivational Keynote Speaker and Certified Performance Coach.

In 2020 the world was faced once again with an incomprehensible situation not unlike 911. The pandemic changed daily lives and routines and forced most to feel isolated and not connected.
Lauren created a DESTINATION. A brick-and-mortar place to experience old world teamwork and bring back group exercise without any of the risks. PowerBox 360 is a place TO BRING BACK HAPPY… A destination like no other, where YOU are inspired, entertained, and pushed to your highest potential. A dance party on steroids where you are swept up in THE EXPERIENCE every single second!
