Brooks/Cheatham Workshop was a Success!

I want to start off by thanking all the participants at the workshop for doing an outstanding job, even with the video cameras and lights all over the place.  I especially would like to thank Carolyn Brumfield RKC II, owner of Phyzyks, for allowing us to use her beautiful facility.  Not only did she allow us to use it, she also instructed the dreaded Double Snatch. For those who missed it, don't worry, the DVD will be out this summer.  

I also want to thank Sara Cheatham for being an amazing partner with this workshop.  In spite of this being our first workshop together, our different teaching styles and personalities complimented each other very well.  It was a great atmosphere and vibe throughout! Thank you to everyone, film crew (you know who you are), Della Whelchel (my BuggyBellz partner) and the great people who surrounded us. 

At the end of the workshop we handed out some feedback forms which were completely Anonymous.  Therefore it allowed people to be as honest as possible.  This is what a few people said about their experience to some of the questions that were asked.

" I heard that these trainers were the best in the field.  I was so happy that everyone was correct.  I hope to be as effective with my clients"

"Great job ladies"

" Thank you Lauren & Sara! You guys were awesome"

" You two worked really well together, well planned"

Thank you so much! I'm so very pleased you like the new DVD. This new one coming will definitely be very different than any of the other DVD's I put out, since it's a live seminar. However, there will be some valuable information that will help with anyone's current training regimen.

This will also be a good compliment to any of my DVD's I have released.

I appreciate your positive feedback!

Take care, Lauren
