Kettlebell Fitness & Nutrition Bootcamp - Starts January 21st




The kick in the rear you just might need to get in gear for the new year! The kettlebell fitness and nutrition bootcamp you can do from your home or local gym. The bootcamp where you'll have people cheering for you and expecting you to show up. The bootcamp where you'll also receive some one on one time with Lauren Brooks to put you on the right path!

A few questions for you before you skip to the fun stuff. Do you have a hard time getting motivated or sticking to your workouts? Do you ever find yourself stuck in a rut and getting no where? Or do you simply just want to be told what to do and be EXPECTED to do it or else? Or maybe you just don't know how to get started or what to do to reach your dream goals? Maybe you're looking for a challenge with other people that you can interact with? Are you READY to make a change once and for all?

If you have answered YES to any of the questions above this will be just the recipe for what you need. Whether you're brand new to the concept of kettlebell training or have been using them for quite some time, this 6 week bootcamp will take all of the guess work away from you.
Over the last 12 years I've filmed hundreds of workout videos and created numerous programs that have been tested by people from all walks of life, all fitness levels and have down right worked! I've also tested out certain orders of the programs and workouts I've developed with a mix and match method on hundreds of people. Depending on their level, I hand select just the right workouts for them in a very SPECIFIC order. This has taken things to the next level and beyond. Rather than re-inventing the wheel I will be HAND SELECTING a workout video (follow along style) that I've already tested out numerous times, whether it be from one of my results driven DVDs, workouts from the playground or from my private collection.

Here's the kicker. I will be giving you a workout on Monday morning or late Sunday night depending on your time zone. Then within 48 hours it will disappear. You will be expected to complete the workout I give you (which will be appropriate for YOUR level). You'll have 2 days to complete it. If it's slightly on the longer side for example 45 minutes, you can do half one day and half the next day. Or half in the morning and the other half in the evening. Every other day you will receive another workout to do on the platform. You'll be able to access it from any device - phone, computer, iPad, stream it to a large screen. We are in the age of technology.

If you've been following me for many years and own most of my videos and you're in Lauren's Playground, chances are you may come across a video or two you've done in the past. So how will it be different for you, you ask? Each day that I provide you a hand selected workout, I will also be posting a video in the private Bootcamp group of what I'd like you to be focusing and honing in on. Next, you will have never done the hand selected workouts in the order that I'll be giving you. There is a method to the madness. Also, you'll have to complete the workout within 48 hours or it disappears and you fall behind. For example Monday's workout will be gone by Wednesday. Wednesday's workout will be gone by Friday and so forth. The group will be expecting you to check in once you're finished with the completed workout.

Each week there will be a NUTRITION CHALLENGE. You simply can't expect to make significant changes if you're not willing to change your nutrition habits. Each week the nutrition challenge will be a very REASONABLE request. I will not be asking you to lower your caloric intake to dangerous levels or do some weird extreme cleanse. If you're in to that, cool, but as a Clinical Nutritionist who has helped hundreds of people get their nutrition habits in check, these will be lifestyle changes.

Here's an example of what Week One's challenge may look like. Week 1 - Cut out Added Sugar - This means sugary drinks (includes juice), sweetened milks, even plant based milks, sugary bars and cereals. Good news is if you have a sugar craving reaching for dark cherries, strawberries, blueberries, pears and scoop of peanut butter will take that away. Here is a recipe that you can make that literally will take your sugar craving away from you. This will be inside the Bootcamp group of course!

The EmPack - Ultimate Workout Backpack that I can use like a Kettlebell

The other day I opened up a mysterious package and out came this interesting looking backpack with a small water or sand reservoir pack to put inside of it. Right away I filled it up with water and put it inside the specific velcro area of the EmPack. 


Watch the video to see how this incredible backpack turns in to a weighted vest, dumbbell, kettlebell, sandbag. Get creative it's your whole gym. You can even stick you InertiaWave inside along with your jump rope for the ultimate experience. No excuses now on not having your gym with you. This can replace a kettlebell and dumbbell on your travel vacations. I wish I had one of these years ago.

Saturday

CONFESSION #7: It was HARD!

CONFESSION #7 : I had just had my 2nd baby, via Cesarean, 6 months prior in these photos. I was breastfeeding, a career woman and running around after a 2 year old.

I was adamant about getting UBSC Vol. 2, the follow up DVD to Ultimate Body Sculpt and Conditioning with Kettlebells, out to the masses. People were emailing me all over the world asking me when the next video was coming. The pressure was on!




I couldn’t believe that the first offering of UBSC Vol 1 and Baby Bells was taken so well, that people would actually be asking me to keep making more.

In the beginning, I was warned not to make a DVD since I knew zero about marketing. I was advised to start small. God had different plans for me.

9 years ago I had the honor of sharing the stage with 2 super powerful women who also happened to be my students. The inspiring Della Whelchel - Mother of 5 and Model/yogj, now Mom of 2, Emily Aguilar.



We had a lovely film crew of 7 and that was sweating bullets in the 95 degree heat watching us train. I was literally pumping milk during breaks. The ground we were filming on, was a rock garden! Not the smartest choice of spots, but I was determined to have an outdoor location that was beautiful and open. It was a brutally long and hard day of filming. These ladies were super women! 💕



Looking back it was worth it! It brought Kettlebell education to people’s homes who didn’t have a coach near by, the time or money to go to a gym, created efficiency that brought short Workouts of strength and conditioning. Knowing it was a game changer for everyone, made it all worth it.

My confession: I was miserable much of the time due to the heat, boobs hurting from the milk, core from 2 - C-sections wasn’t healed yet & fully functioning. It was HARD! But guess what? We can do hard things! Hard doesn’t scare us.

If you haven’t tried Kettlebell fitness you have nothing to fear! Start with a beginner program. I happened to have a few to choose from. Happy to help guide you where to start if you wanna send me a Where do I begin?. Or you can see some of the beginner friendly programs we have right here
