"No more Tylenol and no more cortisone injections!!!"
Read Kimberly's amazing and inspiring story! Don't forget to watch the video as well!
“I’m a 51 yr old woman and a mother of 12 yr old twins. I’ve been doing kettlebells with Lauren for at least 6 years and I usually take 3 months off every summer to travel.
I started kettlebells because I had lower back problems. Most mornings I could not bend over to put on my pants. I also struggled with emptying the dishwasher.
Everyday tasks were problematic for me. I’m also an active person and my back kept me from enjoying many activities. I also had twins at home that needed me to be physically fit to take care of them.
My Dr told me I had degenerative disk disease in my lower back along with arthritis. I had a prescription for 800mg Tylenol and I also started getting cortisone injections into my lower back. After a few years of cortisone shots and Tylenol I heard about Lauren. I was definitely scared because of my back.
I took a few personal training sessions to go over my health history and to also learn proper technique. After, I joined her in person group classes. Even in a group class you feel as though you are training 1 on 1 with Lauren, but with the benefits of the positive energy from the group.
I felt and saw my body getting stronger with every class.
After a few months I noticed I was able to perform everyday tasks without pain. I also remember going golfing for the 1st time after starting kettlebells- I remember my 1st drive and was amazed at how much stronger and stable my core was. After that round of 18 holes I felt great and didn’t need to take anything for pain. No more Tylenol and no more cortisone injections!!!
I am, to this day, completely pain free in my lower back. I am active again and trying to keep up with my kids 😉.
Lauren knows and understands each person that trains with her. She will modify any exercise to each persons personal struggles. I feel blessed to have her as my trainer- she invests so much into each one of us that trains with her. She celebrates us, she recognizes our progress and keeps the energy positive always. I love that my body is strong, I love that I can live a pain free life and I love that I can be active with my children.” Kimberly Wittek
