It’s no surprise I love kettlebells. I have been teaching the art of Kettlebell training for over 16 years! But what you may or may not know is that I LOVE Texas! I was so lucky to be able to fly to one of my favorite states to teach my Kettlebell Fitness Workshop, especially before California went in to a more restrictive tier due to Covid. Y’all, this workshop was FUN! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my story of flying into Dallas and checking out Mike Coffin’s amazing Krav Maga and Kettlebell gym, Crucible Krav Maga.
Even following safety protocols and wearing my mask when close to individuals, we were able to do some great learning and have a ton of fun. Look, during these times it isn’t necessarily easy to fly and spend time in a hotel away from my family, but it was totally worth it! I feel so blessed to be able to share my teaching in front of people! A lot of these Dallas students are people I consider friends. I have known them a long time through my distant coaching and membership, so it was an honor to see them in person as well as meeting some new students and members of Mike’s gym. What I am trying to say is it was just as fun for me as it was for my students! It is invaluable for both me and my students to have hands on experience and touch corrections that might be needed. Even a tiny correction can help improve someone’s technique. If you are a part of my private Lauren’s Playground Facebook group, I am sure you saw some feedback from some of the students who came to the workshop. If not, I’ll share a few comments below that touched my heart at the bottom.

"Lauren! This was one of the best days I've had in Texas! Thank you so very much for reminding me that kettlebell workshops are positive empowering environments!
I had many aha moments and learned a lot and got exercises corrected! Working with you in person is is totally the best investment.
I amazed myself when I dropped like I used to in my 30s. Then I learned why the newer version of squats is best especially as 50 is fast approaching! The Get Up I stood up body weight and that made me grin from ear to ear!
I learned a lot and I'm inspired more than ever! Thank you for helping me get my confidence back only KB exercises."
"I had an amazing time in Dallas yesterday with Lauren Brooks. I've been doing kettlebells for a while now, and I try to make sure I have good form. Still, I had great feedback and learned some tweaks to my Get Up, Clean, and Snatches. I even went deeper with my swings. I'll be working on those windmills for awhile. Those are still tough.
It was a blast! The gym was nice and I appreciated the good airflow.
Thanks again Lauren!"
"Thank you again for an amazing workshop and experience. I tried to soak up every kernel of advice and instructions form and movement. I love that I have the booklet to refer back to so I don't forget a thing. I will use it regularly!
This was my kinda fun today!"
Lot’s of love,
