“It all goes down hill after 40.” said the person who gave up. Don’t tell me it all goes down hill. Every day I train men and women well over 40, who are in better shape now than they were in their youth. Getting older doesn’t mean you have to break down and give up. . This year I’ll be blessed enough to join the 40 club. I’ve gone though 2 C-sections and have never had any plastic surgery. I have zero pain, don’t take any pills and consider myself relatively strong. I eat Girl Scout cookies moderately when the season comes and enjoy real ice cream. I also enjoy pizza on cauliflower crust once a week. Lately I’ll drink a glass of some special low sulfate and low sugar wine once a week. (I sneeze if I don’t do this kind) I don’t count calories ever. I walk my dogs daily and lift Kettlebells consistently. I don’t sit much and stand while I’m at the computer. I do make sure I can always pull and push my own body weight. . If I want to lean out more I’ll just eat less and choose not to have indulgences temporarily. Other than that this is me on any given day. . Helping my students become stronger and sexier in their 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s is truly a gift. I’m inspired daily to see it with my own eyes how they improve as they age! . Don’t let anyone tell you that it goes down hill after a certain age. It’s negative and it’s only true if you stop taking care of yourself. Surround yourself with people who inspire you! . Here’s to being vibrant, strong, fit and healthy at any age. #fitafter40 #fitafterbaby and not listening to the naysayers! #laurenbrooksfitness #kettlebelltraining #strongmom
I'm a fitness, strength, conditioning & nutrition coach that was put here on earth to change peoples lives. I focus on quality of movement, which has helped many people become pain free and strong! My favorite workout tool of choice is your own body weight and adding a kettlebell. Moreover, any tool that helps with strength and quality of movement is incorporated. Fitness is only part of the puzzle to have the happy and healthy quality of life people strive for. With my educational background & experiences nutrition, lifestyle, exercise and a positive mental attitude are all a focus. I design online nutrition & exercise programs as well as create fitness DVD's and videos so people can use my style and methods all around the world. I'm the creator of the "Ultimate Body Sculpt and Conditioning with Kettlebells" series "Baby Bells" DVD, along with The Kettlebell Body, Lightning and Kettlebell Revelation. Being a mother of 4 I know how hard it can be to make health a priority. I truly enjoy helping everyone from all walks of life reach their dream fitness goals to enhance quality of life. It can be done!!!
