Your private, personalized transformation experience. 


Within the mainstream mindset of becoming a warrior, ideas around being strong, impenetrable, and tough tend to arise. However, the true essence of a balanced warrior (as what is fostered in this personalized transformation experience), is one of vulnerability, courage, and a willingness to look and heal the shadow parts of ourselves. Only from this place we can grow to become a more balanced human. This is the embodiment of a true warrior. Someone who is at peace with themselves, and willing to be of the utmost sacred service to their families, communities, and of course one who has a deep knowing of who they are, and thus, honoring the warrior within



Deciding you are ready for this experience requires commitment and a willingness to explore what is, and what is not working for you right now in your life. We are here to support you, however it is important to note that we cannot do the "work" for you. If you are ready to step into the person you seek to become, then we welcome you with open arms to join this amazing opportunity.

Lauren Maloney

Holistic Health Coach

My love for healthy living started young. I was raised in an organic household long before health foods were trendy. My mother, a personal trainer and holistic health enthusiast, healed herself through challenging health obstacles as a young woman, predominantly using food as her medicinal medium. She insisted on providing my brother and I the highest quality organic food we could afford. Regardless of our resistance as kids, holistic lifestyle choices successfully infiltrated my own preferences. I am forever grateful for her wisdom and influence. 


I take a creative approach to life and my coaching. Instead of assessing health challenges from an isolated perspective, my coaching method aims to integrate the mind, body, and soul into a congruent and harmonious human system. Holistic values are inseparable to my programs. I have learned there are no shortcuts to healing and I ask my clients to invest both honesty and responsibility with themselves as we work together towards incredible results!


Being born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, a mecca of health culture, I've been gifted the accessibility to the finest quality food, numerous creative outlets for self development, and a deep affinity with nature. Martial arts molded my athletic background and also brought me very close to spiritual philosophies at a young age. I have dabbled in multiple professions, ranging from law to luxury hospitality - both have enriched my passion for connecting with people and pursuing causes I care about. I am passionate about developing myself as a conscious, compassionate coach and individual. Helping people discover and trust their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual potential is the most rewarding work I could ask for. 


At the root of CHEK philosophy is to "practice what we teach." I have a close relationship to the work I will ask of you, most if not all things we discuss I practice daily in my own life. I too have struggled with burn-out, confused purpose, and reduced physical performance and speak from my heart when I say this work is a path towards the happiest you you've ever known.


I can't wait to be your coach!
