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.

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!
