From Back Pain To Pain Free with Kettlebell Training

 "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

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 aga

5 Year Blog Anniversary and Giveaway

My blog was born March 10th of 2007, 5 years ago, with this  post  that started it all.  It all started 6 weeks after giving birth to my first baby.  The purpose of this blog was to share my journey of embarking as a new mother recovering from a C-section, lost strength, and fitness.  I wanted to share my struggles and perseverance in getting back to my pre-pregnancy self all while enjoying my new road in to motherhood.  I felt this was an easy and convenient way for friends and family that live all over the world, to see photos of my children and updates about our life.  What an amazing experience it  has been for me.  I never thought blogging my experiences would turn in to so much more.  Through my blogging I got the chance to connect with so many wonderful people around the world.  I never fully understood how powerful the stories would effect so many people.   It's truly been an honor.  Being able to continue to drive motivation and hope in to someones life by sharing my life
