President / Director of Performance
Lauren Noe is an elite level Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and holds several advanced degrees in the field. She founded Evolution Performance to create safe and educational atmosphere dedicated to sport specific training. Her mission is to provide safe and effective programming that is goal oriented and promotes life-changing results through education, innovative coaching techniques, and proper nutrition. Developing well-rounded athletes, regardless of age, is her number one priority; she focuses her programming on all aspects of sport performance, from strength training and speed/agility training, to injury prevention, mobility and nutrition.
Born in Akron, Ohio, Lauren was blessed as an exceptional athlete at a very young age. She has always had an unparalleled drive and passion for competition, which earned her a Division 1 Track and Field scholarship from the University of South Florida and bids to the Division 1 Regional Track and Field Championships for three consecutive years. Even after graduating, she continued to train, focusing more on form and mobility. Just recently, she shifted her focus to powerlifting, where she ranks as one of the top competitors in the state of Ohio.
In addition to being a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association, Lauren also has a BS in Exercise Science from the University of South Florida. During her studies, and after graduation from USF, she completed several successful internships with USF Strength and Conditioning and Cooper Sport Performance & Rehab. She was later hired by Cooper’s Sport Performance and had the privilege of leading daily sport performance classes, helping train the Tampa Catholic High School Football team, as well as a handful of college and professional athletes. It was also her responsibility to develop specialized training programs for volleyball athletes of all ages, before leaving to pursue her masters.
Lauren went on to finish her schooling at Kent State University, where she obtained her MA in Sport and Recreation Management. She served as the Performance Coach for Akron General Sport Performance before accepting a position with EFS Personal Training where she worked herself up the ranks quickly, building a solid and loyal following over the course of three and a half years.
With a clear vision for the future, Lauren created Evolution Performance, with a strong belief that everyone should have the chance to reach his or her performance goals in an effective and injury-sparing manner. If you have a vision of where you want your fitness to go, be assured that with patience and commitment, Evolution Performance can take you there.
