Are Kettlebells Right For You?


Do you think Kettlebells really are right for you?  Here's my 2 cents after 2 decades of working with people. 

First off before I dive in to my message today,  I want to deeply thank those who shared their story of racism with me. In case you didn't see the newsletter I sent yesterday, you can find it here, Thank you for opening up your heart and sharing your story of pain and truth. Our stories are what will make the changes in this world. If you would like to share your story with me, I'd be honored to read or listen to it. 

Now back to my message for today

Whether you are 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐜𝐤, 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧, 𝐬𝐨𝐟𝐭, 𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐝, 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐫𝐭, 𝐭𝐚𝐥𝐥, 𝐨𝐥𝐝, 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐠, 𝐚𝐭𝐡𝐥𝐞𝐭𝐢𝐜, 𝐬𝐞𝐝𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐲, 𝐟𝐥𝐞𝐱𝐢𝐛𝐥𝐞, 𝐭𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭, 𝐥𝐚𝐳𝐲, 𝐦𝐨𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐝, 𝐡𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐠𝐲𝐦𝐬, 𝐥𝐨𝐯𝐞 𝐠𝐲𝐦𝐬, 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐟𝐢𝐝𝐞𝐧𝐭, 𝐨𝐫 𝐬𝐜𝐚𝐫𝐞𝐝 𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐭𝐥𝐞𝐬𝐬 - proper Kettlebell training has welcomed each and ever one of these characteristics. 

Kettlebell fitness doesn’t discriminate against race, religion, gender, political views, or the country you live in. 

16 years ago I was warned that this type of training was just a fad and it would phase itself out like everything else. I was told not to invest too much time into it.

I chose not to listen and here’s why. 




Today everyone and their grandma is asking me how to get their hands on a kettlebell. Kettlebells are in such demand they are sold out around the world as people are desperately wanting to use them. 

The results have proven over and over again to be so astounding that after 16 years of sticking to it - and I’ve never stuck to anything in my life this long ( you can ask my mom - lol) - the strength, mobility, body composition, confidence, and community building just keeps getting better and better.

When I implemented this simple training in my students lives, the results and transformative nature was too powerful to ever stop. 

When my students from all walks of life as listed above learned the simple and basic movements in just a few sessions, the light in their eyes turned from unsure to feeling badass! 𝐓𝐡𝐞𝐧 𝐛𝐞𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐛𝐚𝐝𝐚𝐬𝐬! 

Nothing can describe the feeling of being able to lift or swing a hunk of iron in such a primal, raw, and beastly type of way. Even my most frail and older students can do it!

They end up shocked at what they’re capable of doing with some simple coaching! 

Let me express how important coaching is! With the right recipe you can go very far! 𝐈𝐟 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐝𝐨𝐧’𝐭 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐫𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐫𝐞𝐜𝐢𝐩𝐞 - 𝐦𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐜𝐨𝐚𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 - 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐜𝐚𝐧 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐲 𝐦𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐟 𝐮𝐩. I’m just telling you like it is. 

Many end up with tears in their eyes bringing hope back to their lives. 

The power that each person feels during and after each session is undeniably invigorating - even to the person who has always hated “working out”. What results is a a new love of training while feeling 𝐛𝐚𝐝𝐚𝐬𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐮𝐧𝐛𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐤𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞! 

This is why people who try Kettlebell training have stuck with me since the beginning. Yep I have people who’ve been with me over a decade and continue to grow. 

People who were so depressed and going through a major life change that needed a lift in their spirits. The turned that pain in to beautiful strength.

People who suffered from an illness and lost so much weight they ended up weak and frail. Nothing would help them regain their strength and weight until they met kettlebells.

Just this morning a playground student shared with us in the Facebook group how she suffered from Anorexia for years and now at 50 years old she was finally able to get her athletic body back and gain some healthy weight/muscle.

People who didn’t have time to workout but were desperately needing a way to relieve stress quickly, become strong, and get fit. The quick efficient workouts allowed this for thousands over the years.

If any of this resonates with you [fname] come join Lauren’s Playground. The students tell me daily it’s the best investment they’ve ever made in their entire lives. I don’t take that lightly. I cherish it and continue to bring the best coaching and workouts you can get your hands on. 

After working with every type of person I have learned how to deliver this coaching to make it accessible for you.

Yesterday I offered a bonus that if you signed up you'd also get a 30 day access pass to the videos of the Ground Zero Workshop Part 1. I decided to extend this offer until tonight. In addition to the coaching bonuses you might receive depending on how you sign up, you will also get a free 30 day pass to dive in to Ground Zero workshop videos. 

 Join our community and online gym today and become another testimonial like the hundreds we have.

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…
