Here we are, in the final hours before the doors to Lauren's Playground closes again for another six months.   I’ve told you everything you need to know.   I’ve given you a peek inside.   I offered my time and guidance with the 21 Day Squat Challenge.   Now it is your turn.     Sign up for   Lauren's Playground  before your chance is gone.    I am only open membership to Lauren's Playground two times this year so that I can personally connect with every member and continue to create content.  I also create new programs frequently and weekly live classes for my members via Zoom (or locally if you live in the Southern California area). Once you join Lauren's Playground, you too will start to see results if you stay consistent and listen to your body.  Lauren's Playground is about community, about safety and about growth.  This is not an online gym that believes in pushing you too much. So come on, and join me on the Playground and play with the digital downloads,

Thank you so much for sharing this post with our group Peggy E. I can't tell you how happy I am that you can ski with your grandson after a 30 year hiatus! Truly remarkable!  Here's what Peggy said.
