FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How Many Kettlebells Do I need for this DVD?

There are double kettlebell exercises throughout the DVD and workouts, so two are preferred.  However you can always modify if you only have one kettlebell.  Feel free to email me if you need help with a modification and you are not ready for 2 kettlebells yet.

How Can I Incorporate these Follow Along Workouts with your other DVD's?

Very Simple.  Email me with the DVD's or workouts you are doing now, current level of fitness, and any other activities you are involved with,  your goals, and I will send you some ideas on how to implement it safely.  This goes with all my DVD products as well.  If you ever have any questions on program design with rotating my DVD's just email me.  I answer all my emails personally and pride myself in that!

Will this DVD be too advanced if I am just beginning my kettlebell journey?


Since this is designed more for the Intermediate kettlebell user, there will be certain exercises you may not be ready to try.  However, we do cover all of the foundation kettlebell exercises, which are very helpful for beginners.  If you are brand new to kettlebells you might be better off using this as a reference at first, but focusing on Vol. 1 of "Ultimate Body Sculpt and Conditioning with Kettlebells" or other DVD's with just basic workouts.

What size kettlebell should I start with and where should I purchase my kettlebell?

Please refer to my F.A.Q. page for general questions regarding your kettlebell. I cover all of this in detail on this link.  http://www.ontheedgefitness.com/FAQ.aspx

Do you ship to the UK, Australia, Canada, or International?

Yes.  All of On The Edge Fitness DVD's are shipped everywhere and coded for all region. We have shipped to almost every country in the world.  We have shipped All over the UK, Malasia, China, Peru, Ireland, Turkey, Denmark, Mexico, Belgium, Switzerland, France, Sweden, South Africa, Spain, Italy, Amsterdam the list goes on and on.

I love your DVDs and do them often.  I have a question regarding this new DVD.  Is it actually a workout like your other ones?  Or is it a workout, with instructions throughout the workout, thus making it a slower moving DVD, etc...?  


The workouts on this DVD are not slow at all. The 2 follow along workouts on this DVD are very similar to the other DVD's I have produced. Although, it's not a pretty outside background like my other workouts that focus on just me and my well matched workout partners.  These are filmed live with no editing so you will get to see me during the short rest.  I am still leading/ instructing, but you can see some of the workshop participants doing it as well. It's not slower paced by any means.  However, the rest of the workshop that doesn't include the workouts are taught in a detailed way. We have chaptered it an organized way to allow you to move through any section you don't care for. 


How long are the follow along workouts?


Disc 1 the follow along workout is approximately 16 minutes.  Disc 2 the follow along workout is approximately 13 minutes.  They both can be repeated again to make the intense workout even more challenging or used as a jump start to your day for a quick morning, lunch-time, or afternoon boost.  You can easily go for a nice walk after one of these workouts or go to a yoga class on the same day without feeling as if you are over training.   The joint mobility section is 10 minutes and you can follow along to it as well. 


Since this is a workshop DVD, will the follow-along workout have any music?


If you own any of my DVD's you will know that music is very important to me.  I personally go out and find producers of instrumental music that will match the theme of the workout.  It takes quite a bit of time on my part, but I enjoy sampling music, and finding the right beat to make it more fun and motivating for the exerciser.  So the answer is YES there is music that goes with both workouts, however these is not music for the joint mobility section!  These workouts are also typed on screen, so you can use the format and do it on your own as well. 


I've seen some of these same exercises on other DVD's.  Will I be bored if I learn some of the same exercises again?


These exercises are taught in a completely different setting allowing Sara and me to go in to much more detail.  You will learn different techniques on this DVD that are not on any other DVD available.  The concepts you pick up and tips will improve your form and open a whole new door of training for you. Therefore, increasing the efficiency of your current workouts, which will provide improved results.

If your questions have not been answered regarding this DVD feel free to contact me at Lauren@socaltrainer.com.  I do get a large flow of emails daily, so I appreciate your patience in me getting back to each of you individually.

"I was very impressed with Lauren's ability to patiently explain each move focusing on each step as it should be executed.  I went in with no knowledge of what a kettlebell workout should look like and feel as though, with some work, I will be able to apply the exercises I learned. Thank you!!"

Looking for a quick way to get attention for your training business and separate yourself from the competition?

Have you heard about battling ropes training?

This system is spreading like wild fire around the world and has become an integral part of almost every major sports strength and conditioning program.

I have been fortunate enough to track down John Brookfield and talked him into doing a certification workshop at our gym in Orange County!  John is a world renowned strength coach and holds several strength records that are jaw dropping!  His Battling Ropes program has become a popular conditioning tool for the NFL, Olympic athletes, elite military units and strength coaches everywhere.

“As an athlete who has trained at an elite level for almost 30 years, it takes a lot for a new training system to impress me. But within just a few sessions, John Brookfield's Battling Ropes training system had clearly improved my power, strength, and muscular endurance. My sports--weightlifting and bobsledding--require a unique combination of strength and explosiveness, and Battling Ropes offers great physical and mental results. The ropes are simple to learn but tough to master! I am a better athlete thanks to John's encouraging guidance and his unwavering commitment to personal excellence. John is an amazing athlete and mentor who knows from experience what works when it comes to strength and conditioning. “

“Thanks, John, for coming to the Olympic Center to teach our wrestlers your Battling Ropes system. It was great to get all the instruction directly from you, the creator of the system. I strongly believe that your Battling Ropes system will benefit our wrestlers in a great way. All of the wrestlers quickly saw how the training will help them go to the next level.”

Ivan Ivanov
Head Greco Roman wrestling coach, Olympic training center
Silver Medalist 1994 world championships
Six-time Bulgarian national champion

Helping John with the certification is Battling Ropes coach Ingrid Marcum who is the current USA Weightlifting National Champion and US Bobsled World Team Member. Ingrid was a former elite gymnast and the strength and conditioning coach at the college of William and Mary.

“John Brookfield's Battling Ropes are quickly becoming one of my favorite tools for developing power and endurance in every inch of the body as well as an amazing conditioning tool. We have only just begun to tap into the endless potential of the ropes and all our athletes are feeling the powerful effects immediately. This is a must-have tool for athletes; I have seriously never felt anything like this from any other training implement.”

“I've known John Brookfield for almost 20 years, going to back to when he was an active professional strongman in the classic sense and aspired to have the world's strongest hands. John went on to become the second man in the world to officially close the Captains of Crush® No. 3 Gripper and the first man to get certified for bending the Ironmind® Red Nail, which he did in very traditional style. But his book, Mastery of Hand Strength, showed an even greater gift that John has which is a creative mind coupled with an unblinking belief in his latest concepts that has allowed John to keep churning out new training ideas, benefiting both his own training and that of those lucky enough to learn from him.”

Coconut Flour Waffles - Gluten Free


Sundays are my days to cook a special breakfast. Special meaning something out of the ordinary for me. Meaning homemade pancakes or waffles for the family.  I refuse to buy any flour that contains gluten.  This week I wanted to try making waffles with coconut flour. These are easy to make and are ready in minutes.



 Coconut Flour Waffle Recipe

Makes 4 Waffle
Serving size - 1 Waffle

1/3 cup Coconut Flour
1/2 cup Organic Plain Almond Milk
6 Organic Free Range Eggs
1 Tbs of Olive Oil
1/2 tsp of Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 Tbs Agave
1/4 cup of unsweetened apple sauce

Blend together until smooth.  I use my blender when making any batter. Batter will be somewhat thicker than almond flour or oat flour.

Pour on a heated waffle iron and cook on medium.  These were a little on the dry side.  I think adding 1/4 cup of unsweetened apple sauce will do the trick, but haven't tried it yet.

Let me know what you think.
