Member Spotlight - Cathy, 57 years old, mom of 2, Full Body Transformation Story!

MEMBER SPOTLIGHT Meet Cathy Schlaht Began her training at 54 years old!  Left - Before Discovering Playground Strength       Right - After, consistency,  and 30+ pounds lighter A few words from Cathy Schlaht “I cannot believe how much I have transformed and how I know I can continue to gain strength and sculpt. You have the formula! No matter where someone is starting from, they will gain strength. Losing weight is a side effect and the amount you lose will depend on how many small changes you are willing to make. I never lifted weights, never strength trained in my life, never belonged to a gym. If I can attain these changes everyone can!! Lauren will meet you where you are and help you if you have pain or lack of mobility. This is her magic!! If you are ready to transform your mind and body, join us. You will feel supported by the community in Lauren’s Playground and we have the most caring, grounded and inspiring coach!!” Watch her video here!  Cathy, a dentist and a mother of 2, b

52 yrs old and is Stronger Now Than Ever Before

Meet 52 yr old, Dionne, and member of Lauren’s Playground ! Dionne is 52 in 2 days and feels stronger than she ever has in her whole life. She started liking training again, after hating it during her basketball days, when she went to grad school and took up running and weights.  Dione says: “My main focus had always been cardio up to this point. I completed two half marathons & then decided never again. I wanted to move on to challenging myself to get strong & lean, not just lean. I've been using your workouts since your 1st DVD and have never looked back. They give me a great workout whenever I need it. Once I joined the Playground, however, things took off ,  doing different types of strength exercises (e.g., TX trainer,  battle ropes) to supplement my kettlebell training, and t he power of group support was all new. I didn’t realize I was suppose to be going up in weight. All this has changed and I'm benefiting from doing/having all three. I feel strong an

Training Smarter versus Harder

Just pondering on how lucky I feel to have found “smart” training, versus “hard” training. My body, along with most of my clients bodies, have responded VERY well… to the point that people stop them all the time and ask them how they look so strong and young! Yeah none of us have to kill ourselves in our sessions. In fact half the time we don’t even get sore. We have energy all day for the rest of the stuff we need to handle in life.  In all honesty  I don’t do “cardio”. I don’t track my food. I train in a Zen mode a few times a week and have a very minimalistic approach. Like VERY minimal!  I do put sleep as a priority in my life which is a big part of how one responds.  People assume I workout all day long. When in fact I barely train.  My days are spent training others, designing programs, raising kids, keeping a house hold together, and taking care of my 400+ members in Lauren’s Playground and On The Edge Fitness. I also now have time for friend meet ups, fun activities, and creati

"Within the last year I have TONED, become more MUSCULAR than I have ever been! I don't have pain any more and my elbow issues are gone!" Eloise K. England I couldn’t be more proud to celebrate Eloise! Check out her journey from when she started Lauren’s Playground one year ago to now! From no energy with pain and weakness to strong, more energy than she knows what to do with, muscular, toned up, and super strong! “I'm 37, I had tennis elbow on my right arm and a left hip that was always nagging with pain from sitting so much for work. I also always had a sore right shoulder. I don't have pain any more and my elbow issues are gone, even though I do tons of pull ups and presses and snatches I have ZERO issues in my shoulder. When I started last year I had very little energy and I didn’t have strength. I couldn't do a push-up, a pull-up or many swings. I've been awakened to mobility and the way you integrate it, is just perfect. I’ve become aware
