52 yrs old and is Stronger Now Than Ever Before


Meet 52 yr old, Dionne, and member of Lauren’s Playground!

Dionne is 52 in 2 days and feels stronger than she ever has in her whole life. She started liking training again, after hating it during her basketball days, when she went to grad school and took up running and weights. 


Dione says: “My main focus had always been cardio up to this point. I completed two half marathons & then decided never again. I wanted to move on to challenging myself to get strong & lean, not just lean. I've been using your workouts since your 1st DVD and have never looked back. They give me a great workout whenever I need it. Once I joined the Playground, however, things took offdoing different types of strength exercises (e.g., TX trainer,  battle ropes) to supplement my kettlebell training, and the power of group support was all new. I didn’t realize I was suppose to be going up in weight. All this has changed and I'm benefiting from doing/having all three.

I feel strong and empowered now. Like I can take on anything. I have suffered from depression and anxiety my entire life. I use working out as one of my best resources for fighting depression. It keeps me feeling good about myself and about life generally. That's me! Keep the awesome workouts coming. Dionne” Isn’t she amazing? And to allow me to share her struggles, which is so common, and not talked about enough. Depression and anxiety is so real and more people suffer from this than we share. Exercise is an absolute necessary and group support to help this!

I can't tell you how many people come to me and Lauren's Playground to help fight their depression, while transforming and becoming the strongest versions they ever thought was possible. 

Let's also admit how incredible fit, strong, and beautiful Dionne is! Join the Playground while our doors are open for a few more days so you can have access to the amazing programs and support!! You can join right here before we close until 2023! Message me if you have any questions!

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
