Recap of the Jan 2010 Kettlebell Workshop


I had an awesome time at yesterdays kettlebell workshop. A great way to start off the beginning of 2010. This workshop was held at an amazing facility in Encinitas, Crossfit Counter Culture. This facility is beautifully set up for the serious exerciser. There is nothing fluffy about this gym except for the bumping sound system and flat screen TV. Other than that, it's filled with hard style training equipment that's meant to be used for the hardcore exerciser. This is an ideal place to train and I felt right at home.




Every time I teach a new workshop I learn more and more. With so many different body types and backgrounds there will always be something unique I can work with and hopefully fix. Presenting at workshops is such a rewarding experience. To work with a group who all have such different backgrounds, yet come together with kettlebells! To see the proud look on each persons face when they have that moment when something clicks. "Ahh haaaa, so that's how it's suppose to feel. So I do have Glutes. "



As long as everyone had fun while they were learning, then I know I did my part!

Below are a few pictures and some feedback from this weekends workshop. The next Kettlebell Workshop will be for the Intermediate level and will most likely be held in Encinitas.


I really enjoyed the relaxed teaching style of the workshop. I was worried that I would feel intimidated, but Lauren's relaxed style made me feel comfortable immediately. She was very open and responsive to the students fitness levels and needs. I am excited to be starting on my kettlebell journey knowing that I have learned the correct technique that will enable me to attain my fitness goals.

I had a great time! Lauren is an excellent teacher she covers everything. She is definitely educated on the human body and knows what she teaches. Loved the class!

Lauren's workshop was specific, efficient and perfectly designed with appropriate progressions. Specific needs were easily addressed. Individuals each received cues plus suggestions constantly throughout the entire session. Lauren demonstrates and presents excellent real life examples of each kettlebell exercise, as well as providing a specific accurate workbook. SENSATIONAL!

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…

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.
