Owner, HourGlass Fitness and Wellness
Certified Facilitator, Wellness Forum
Yoga Alliance-registered Yoga Teacher-200 hour
ACE-certified Personal Trainer
Lorrie earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Kansas and her graduate degree from the University of Missouri – Kansas City. After having her first child in 1999, Lorrie discovered the importance of specialized exercise and nutrition for post-partum women. While pregnant with her second child in 2003, she founded HourGlass Fitness and Wellness, a personal fitness and nutrition service committed to helping people take control of their health and increase their quality of life using exercise instruction, nutrition education and lifestyle choices to achieve optimum wellness.
Lorrie is certified as a personal trainer by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) and studied practical training through ACE as well. Lorrie has been training since 1996. Always striving to find the ultimate fitness regimen, she realized she needed more balance in her fitness routine. This quest led her to her first yoga class where she found the fitness piece she was missing! Lorrie is now a Yoga Alliance 200-hour certified yoga teacher. Yoga is the one form of exercise she has found to provide a true sense of balance in and between the mind and body.
Having pinned down the fitness piece of the equation, Lorrie realized she couldn’t have optimal health and wellness without optimal nutrition. That realization has led her down the path to unraveling the mystery of what food and lifestyle can do in our bodies and that of our children to prevent and reverse disease. She is very dedicated to helping others learn this same information and is a certified facilitator for the Wellness Forum, the largest company of its kind offering science-based diet and lifestyle education. Lorrie offers its 10-hour comprehensive diet and lifestyle course and other Wellness Forum presentations. Lorrie is also a wellness educator with LifeWise, a division of St. Luke’s Health Care,to deliver education to area employers, giving presentations to employees on a number of fitness and nutrition topics in an effort to reduce insurance costs. She is also asked to speak for many groups and organizations in the KC Metro area.
Lorrie continues to learn about the impact of fitness and nutrition on the human body and is always striving to make HourGlass Fitness and Wellness a “one-stop shop” for optimum wellness in the Wellsville/Lawrence/KC area!
