Began her training at 54 years old! 

Left - Before Discovering Playground Strength

      Right - After, consistency,  and 30+ pounds lighter

A few words from Cathy Schlaht
“I cannot believe how much I have transformed and how I know I can continue to gain strength and sculpt.
You have the formula!
No matter where someone is starting from, they will gain strength. Losing weight is a side effect and the amount you lose will depend on how many small changes you are willing to make.
I never lifted weights, never strength trained in my life, never belonged to a gym.
If I can attain these changes everyone can!!
Lauren will meet you where you are and help you if you have pain or lack of mobility. This is her magic!!
If you are ready to transform your mind and body, join us.
You will feel supported by the community in Lauren’s Playground and we have the most caring, grounded and inspiring coach!!”

Cathy, a dentist and a mother of 2, began her strength journey at 54 yrs old. She had never done strength training before in her whole life and felt very intimidated to get started. She came in with nagging knee and trap pain.
However she overcame it, dropped over 30 pounds, can swing a 90lb kettlebell, ski better after a 9 year hiatus, do push ups, and snatch and press a 35lb kettlebell! Knee and trap pain disappeared as well!

Join Cathy and others in Lauren’s Playground today before we close for the rest of the year. You will not regret it.

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

Let's Talk About Butts (Butt "on" Workouts)

To lift or not to lift, that is the question.  Despite the popular sayings, "Strong is the new Skinny" or "Strong is the New Sexy," there is still a large portion of the female population that will shy away from lifting solely due to their fear of bulking up or building too much muscle.  I'm not going to tell you that heavy weights won't help build muscle and I'm not going to deny the fact that some women can build muscle easier than others.   Let's start with the photo below.  This is a nice example of the female backside that shows two different body types.  The woman on the left falls in the category of an ectomorph, which generally means skinny, little muscle, and a very high metabolism.  She could probably eat what she wants and stay skinny.  If she committed to a butt strengthening and enhancing program, filled with exercises such as squats, deadlifts, and kettlebell swings , developing the butt on the right would still be unlike
