Touched By This Gift

Today I received a surprise gift in the mail.  I recognized the name since I received this wonderful email from her before regarding my kettlebell DVD's.

"Hi Lauren!
First, I have to say that you are my introduction to kettlebells and I am glad I started here!  I have been through only 10 workouts and I am seeing a difference!  You make the kettlebell approachable and your training style and work along dvds are REALLY wonderful for teaching proper form and being motivating!  I am 43, mom of 3 girls, 118lb and 5'5".   After many types of exercise, supreme pilates, the Firm step videos, treadmill, Tracy Anderson Method... I realized I needed a program that  wasn't high impact  (old knees!) and that had cardio and weight training.  I found you!  I only use a 15lb bell but just ordered a 22lb off dragondoor and have your first 2 dvds.  I see that they will keep me busy for some time to come!  

Anyway, i will let you know of my progress as you may want to know that your program is changing lives here in Austin, tx!  I think you are from Texas too :)
THANK YOU FOR MAKING YOUR WORKOUTS AVAILABLE ON DVD!!!



Here is another follow-up after sending her a rotation for using the DVD's: 

 "The rotation is Wonderful!  Just what I needed! Never thought to do the practice of all of the exercises as a workout!  As I mentioned before, only 7 weeks in.  Never have I seen such quick results from any exercise plan before, and I have done them all, treadmill, gym, step aerobics, jogging.  I love your challenging workouts and look forward to swinging my 12kg!  Just did the 12 minute 2times this morning.  Thanks for the advice on the squats!"

My husband hands me this little package from our business mailbox.  Inside is this gorgeous purple note with more beautiful thank you words!  Then inside a little beautifully wrapped gift box wrapped in my all time favorite colors of purple.  And now for the grand finale, something I have always wanted but would never have bought for myself!

A personalized HANDMADE silver pendant necklace with a kettlebell and my initials on the front and back!



THANK YOU so much Debi!!  You have no idea how much you made my day.  I will definitely be wearing this pendant everywhere!  I just checked out the website on Debi's stationary that was enclosed.  I am very impressed with the site StClairBoutique.etsy.com.   This website has tons of different kettlebell wear and handmade jewelry!  Such great gifts and happy to spread the word about this place since I LOVE my new gift!

Here is the website.  I just spoke to her and she said that she started all the kettlebell handmade gifts after falling in love with them through my workouts!  Such an honor to have inspired so many people! Just type in kettlebells on the search page and you will find tons of cool gifts for kettlebell lovers and pretty things. Here's the site again StClairBoutique.etsy.com

How nice!
I have your first 2 DVDs, and would love to know what workout rotation you recommend.
Have you posted, or will you post, a bodyweight workout for traveling without equipment or just wanting to change up a routine?
Thanks.

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.…
