Three years ago, nano-influencer and YouTuber Jen Lauren created her channel to post about her passion for fitness and health in a new and unique way. She had struggled to find workout reviews on YouTube, so she created her own reviews of workout classes in New York City. Her first videos zeroed in on popular workouts hotspots, including New York Pilates, Y7 Yoga, and a Barre3 class

Today, the nano-influencer also covers the fitness and lifestyle gamut for her 4.9K subscribers, along with her 3.8K Instagram followers. She has a small but interactive collective of fitness fanatics, making it feel as though they know Jen intimately
