Over 5 Inches Lost in Waist in 4 Weeks After Trying Everything!

 Over 5 Inches Lost in Waist in 4 Weeks After Trying Everything!

"In 4 weeks I have lost 5+ inches from my waist and I haven't felt this good in years. I LOVE your workout and I love kettlebells. It is the perfect workout for me. I have so much fun doing it, I can't wait for the baby to take her morning nap so I can get to work! I have never done a workout that didn't feel like a chore before this." Patty M. from South Salem, NY


Another new mom reaches out and shares with me her experience with finally finding a workout that not only gives her the results that she wants, but also makes her look forward to it. Everyone has to realize that there are many paths to get to your fitness and health goals. However, to stay motivated and actually enjoy the chosen path is what's most important. If you are bored to tears and  dread the activity that you have chosen you really need to figure out a more exciting and enjoyable avenue for yourself. Otherwise you will not be consistent and you will definitely not be able to stick with it long enough to see lasting results.  Getting to your goals should be a fun and lasting experience that continues for a lifetime.

 I am sure many of you have been through the same thing that Patty has been through and can relate with her.


Hi Lauren,

I have been struggling with finding a workout that fits me for a very long time. Running, yoga, weight training, jumping rope... I've tried so many things. Endless cardio bores me, I love weight training but never felt like I was effectively doing it and it didn't help me lose weight, just get bulky. And I have always had an aversion to workout videos -- lame! I have a naturally muscularly dense body and I know I am naturally strong.

I had my daughter 8 months ago and while pregnant so many women told me that they had never been as skinny as when they were breast feeding so I thought the baby weight would melt away. I was so wrong. I gained 55 pounds when I was pregnant and 6 months after having my baby I had still only lost 20 of those pounds. And the same 10 kept coming and going as my body would adjust to my running routine to store fat for the baby's food. I even tried jumping rope while the baby was napping, and I actually stress fractured BOTH of my knees from it and was on crutches. Can you imagine??? I was truly desperate.

After reading in a few different articles/books about kettlebells being the perfect workout, I started looking for some instructional videos and of course found you. In 4 weeks I have lost 5+ inches from my waist and I haven't felt this good in years. I LOVE your workout and I love kettlebells. It is the perfect workout for me. I have so much fun doing it, I can't wait for the baby to take her morning nap so I can get to work! I have never done a workout that didn't feel like a chore before this.

My husband noted my accomplishments so far and said to me, "It's like you're finally starting to realize that you are beautiful." Now he wants to start, after seeing my results. That is truly what it means to lead my example. So thank you for making this video and not only allowing me to enjoy getting in shape again but also to inspire my husband to do the same. (He gained some baby weight too while I was pregnant...)

Thank you again!


Kindest Regards,
Patty M.

I've been doing Lauren's vol. 1 DVD for the past 2 months ... and I've definitely lost at least an inch, if not more. I only wish I lived in San Diego so I could take a class with Lauren :-)

I even gave a shout-out on my blog today ...

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.…
