Worth Checking Out

I want to make an announcement about our friend John Brookfield who will be setting a World Record. Those who don't know who he is, he is an extraordinarily strong guy, who is the founder of the battlingropes system. Check out his website for more info at Powerropes.com If you aren't training with ropes you should start! It's awesome.

On Saturday November 1st in Fairmont North Carolina at 2:00 in the afternoon John Brookfield and Jon Bruney are going to set a World Record by pulling a semi-truck a distance of one mile plus using only their physical strength and mental discipline. John Brookfield and Jon Bruney have done this record on several occasions, however, this time they will be upping the weight load to over thirty thousand pounds and pushing themselves to the limit to pull the mile distance as fast as possible. Many are saying that this feat of strength and endurance may be the greatest physical accomplishment ever. Come out and witness this event and walk along with them as they push themselves to keep the truck moving through the streets of Fairmont. For more specific information about the location and the record please contact John Brookfield by email at john@powerropes.com.

Next I want to share Lisa Shaffer's segment on the news. She appeared on the news talking about kettlebells. Awesome exposure LIsa. Great instructor and friend! Here is the link to her segment.

Great interview! It's interesting to see how your career evolved and to see how you've incorporated your career with your responsibilities as a mother.

Looking forward to an update on how you're doing.

Great interview, congratulations!

As for the ropes, they deliver the most intense workout I ever experienced... The first time I tried them I was wasted in seconds :)
Congratulations Lauren!
Ordered the 100' 2" diameter rope last week and look forward to a scintillating workout doing the Tsunami!

What Doctor's don't tell you after a C-section

I have now been through 2 C-sections since writing this blog post and thankfully I've recovered beautifully from both with the appropriate progressions. For those who are new and are just finding me.

WELCOME!

First let me say I did NOT want a C-section. I did everything in my power to avoid the first and even the second. I'm a kettlebell fitness strength and conditioning coach who relies on her body to share, teach, educate, and I was under the impression that having to give birth via C-section would and could destroy my body and career. Boy was I wrong! If you're feeing the same way, start by reading this article I wrote many years ago that still applies today!

Many people have asked and here is part of my experience.  I don't claim to be a medical expert but not only have I successfully healed my C-section, my abdominals are no longer numb, and I've successfully helped others who've had multiple C-sections (even some 20 years ago) find their core again.  I d…

Let's Talk About Butts (Butt "on" Workouts)

To lift or not to lift, that is the question.  Despite the popular sayings, "Strong is the new Skinny" or "Strong is the New Sexy," there is still a large portion of the female population that will shy away from lifting solely due to their fear of bulking up or building too much muscle.  I'm not going to tell you that heavy weights won't help build muscle and I'm not going to deny the fact that some women can build muscle easier than others.  


Let's start with the photo below.  This is a nice example of the female backside that shows two different body types.  The woman on the left falls in the category of an ectomorph, which generally means skinny, little muscle, and a very high metabolism.  She could probably eat what she wants and stay skinny.  If she committed to a butt strengthening and enhancing program, filled with exercises such as squats, deadlifts, and kettlebell swings, developing the butt on the right would still be unlikely.  Through h…

21 Day Squat Challenge - #21DaysOfSquats

Welcome to the 4th annual Squat Challenge! 


**BY POPULAR DEMAND WE ARE DOING THE SQUAT CHALLENGE AGAIN ON FEBRUARY 1ST 2019**




Why Squat? Squats are one of the most beneficial exercises to practice. I could sit here and tell you how squatting makes you stronger, more conditioned, firms your legs and butt, improves digestion, increases energy and mood, but I'm sure you know the endless amount of benefits. A few people who've participated in the past squat challenges chose to share their experiences which I've shared below.

 So let's just get to squatting! Beginners are welcomed! Join our Challenge Today here and read the easy rules below! 

Do you plan on doing more than the Squat Challenge? If you want a workout plan... hundreds of people in Lauren's Playground will be doing programs like Upper Body Bliss and the Tushy Toning Transformation in conjunction with the 21 Day Squat Challenge. This year we will have a RESET program that coincides well with the Squat Challenge.…
