Kim has been a part of The Perfect Workout since 2009, but that’s not when her fitness journey started. In the 1980’s Kim immersed herself into exercise, where she taught aerobics, step aerobics, yoga and weight lifting. She was in incredible shape then, and she continues to stay in incredible shape.
However, Kim’s success in physical fitness hasn’t been a straight line. Kim eventually left the fitness industry and took another career path. Before she knew it, she found herself in a demanding job, with two kids and 40 extra pounds on her body. Staying in shape had become difficult. After a few years, Kim made the decision to change her body and her life. “I went to a fitness center to get my butt in gear!”
Kim remembered how incredible exercise had made her feel and realized it was something she was not willing to give up again. “I don’t know why I ever got out of it.” She made the commitment from then on to make exercise a priority again.
After renewing her personal fitness journey, Kim thought it was time to take the next step and become certified as a Personal Trainer. Having personally struggled with time constraints in the past, Kim was drawn to our twice a week methodology. After trying our Slow-Motion High Intensity workout, she was hooked. Kim joined The Perfect Workout and went through the extensive certification process and is now one of our longest tenured personal trainers.
Not only has Kim been a part of our Orange County team for the last 10 years, but she has also been the Facility Manager of our Laguna Niguel studio since 2011.
In the last decade Kim has helped numerous client’s transform their bodies and their lives. One of her clients, Joyce Magnuson saw significate weight loss results and dropped 43 pounds while working with Kim. Joyce says, “I never would have been able to do that before. Kim deserves accolades for being with me every step of the way, for being encouraging. I think she’s fabulous.”
Like many of our clients, Kim is in her 50’s. Sometimes it’s hard for our clients to believe it, but she only exercises at The Perfect Workout twice a week too.
“Most people think I work out five or six times a week! I know for sure I have a lot more muscle on my body than I did in my 20s, but I weigh the same. I’m so much stronger now. I LOVE The Perfect Workout!”
When Kim is not busy training clients, she enjoys spending time with her dog, her “little angel.” She also loves playing and making memories with her granddaughter. For peace and quiet, nothing beats a walk at her favorite place, Dana Point Harbor.
“I love working with all the other instructors at The Perfect Workout! The most rewarding part of the job is knowing that I’m keeping people motivated, and helping them get healthy.”
It’s a wonderful feeling to be a part of a client’s lifestyle change. Knowing that she is helping people get healthy and keeping them motivated is very fulfilling for Kim, “I love it when my clients really get into the workouts and push themselves more than they thought possible. That’s when people really see results.”

Lauren Baumbauer has been training people in a variety of fitness formats for 20 years, going back to high school and her days at Purdue University. She taught martial arts in the Ed Parker style of American Kenpo, and still teaches women’s self-defense and empowerment courses.
Lauren’s varied background in fitness made her a natural fit for The Perfect Workout. She was familiar with the concept of slow-motion strength training, having incorporated elements of it into her martial arts training years before. But once she started doing our full workouts herself, she was blown away by the results. “I thought I was strong before,” says Lauren, “but I’ve been impressed with my strength gains!”
Lauren already had acquired Personal Trainer certifications from ACE and NASM when she went through the rigorous and very detailed hands-on certification process at The Perfect Workout. In 2010, Lauren joined the Orange County team as one of the original Personal Trainers at our Laguna Niguel studio. Since beginning at The Perfect Workout, she has changed many lives through slow-motion strength training while adding in her own expertise in sports injuries, posture rehab, neuropathy therapy, body mechanics, and wellness.
Lauren’s client success stories are impressive. “It’s easier for people to pick up slow motion strength training than traditional weight training. And his results are amazing”. A big focus of Lauren’s is working on form, posture, and injuries. “I’ve witnessed clients lose their Dowager Humps, correct back and shoulder pain, and become athletes when used to have pain just brushing their teeth. I’ve had so many clients just be able to go back to ‘living their lives again’ over the years-- to me that is the biggest success.”
Lauren loves connecting with people and it’s a part of how she trains her clients. “I’m detailed, thorough, and very personalized in my approach with each person.” Lauren is energetic and makes workouts fun and engaging while still challenging.
When Lauren isn’t at the studio, she is out living her best life! She regularly performs and teaches Improvisational Theater. Lauren is also an artist, writer, former copywriter and graphic designer. “I’m an avid traveler and pet sitter. I love meditation and mindfulness. And if I’m not taking walks and hiking, I’m hanging out in fun coffee shops probably in Long Beach giving out hugs!”
Leaning more and more into her life as a coach and trainer, and becoming even more specialized in helping people be their best selves is what Lauren continues to strive for. “My whole life is about teaching and helping others.”

Since he was a kid, Ryan Perreira was fascinated with building a strong physique. “I always wanted bigger muscles as a kid, so I started working out with friends.” He fell in love with bodybuilding and immersed himself in the culture.
Ryan got his first job in the fitness industry in 2006 working in a popular supplement retail store where he became a Certified Nutritionist, receiving his certification from Exercise and Sports Nutrition Works. While extensively educating himself on the many different supplements available, Ryan learned the skills to develop customized meal programs for people that wanted to get in better shape.
