A few words from the past workshop attendees. Here are what some people have said so far.
"My experience was nothing short of amazing! I’ve been following you for several years and worked with you in distant sessions, so there was NO WAY I was going to miss the opportunity to meet and learn from you in person.
I am constantly amazed and impressed at how genuine you are and the amount of knowledge and experience you are so willing to share. Even though it was a long, packed day, I came away energized and with so many immediately applicable tips, cues, corrections and information. I even had a few “a-ha” moments with my own technique. There is nothing like having the eyes of a master on you to raise the level of your own skill.
You have been hugely instrumental in my growth as a kettlebell enthusiast all the way through now to being a Kettlebell coach. It was an honor and dream for me to get to share space with you. Denice and Beth can attest to that as I didn’t stop talking about it all weekend :-)
All in all, that honestly was one of the highlights of my entire life. I look forward to the day I get to work with you again.
With many thanks and all my respect and admiration,"
"I can't thank you enough for coming across the country to meet with your students on the East Coast. It was so incredible to spend a full day learning from you! Your knowledge of kettlebells and understanding of body movements is amazing and I was so impressed with your ability to assess things so quickly and offer feedback that could be incorporated effortlessly with immediate improvements. You definitely have a gift, which I already knew from all of our phone consults, but to see you working in your element was very special. It was so nice to spend the day with people that have the same interest and to finally put the faces and names together. We live thousands of miles away from you and this past weekend would not have been possible if you weren't willing to share a bit of yourself with all of us. Thank you so much for being you"
"I really enjoyed the workshop. You really made it a welcoming environment and suitable for all body types and skill levels. I like how you incorporated some teaching tips, as it gave a new spin on movements that would have been "review" for many of us. Learning the half-snatch was very cool, and I also appreciated seeing the modified DL in person as it doesn't come across quite as clearly on video. I loved the MELT movements, too! I'm noticing some changes in my flexibility already, and I'm surprised that it's made me feel looser in areas of my neck that I didn't even notice were there before."
"After attending the NC workshop, I have to say if I had the money and was not injured, I would come to CA to attend it again! I hope you do one next year again (on the east coast)! You are the best Lauren Brooks! This workshop far exceeded my expectations!
The workshop was amazing! Not only did I learn from you, I also learned from all the other participants. It was a true collaboration under your leadership. Even though I have been using kettlebells for years, I learned so much in just a few hours. I will definitely come to another workshop in the future!"
"First off I want to extend a big big thank you for coming all the way to my neck of the woods to train us east coasters. :) Attending one of your workshops and learning from you personally has been on my bucket list for a very long time. The workshop was everything I wanted and more. I have been using your videos for about 7 years now (and the playground for several months now- which I LOVE) and I have always wanted to have you check my form in person to be sure I am getting the most out of my workouts. Honestly, recently due to a lot of stress I haven't been prioritizing my self care and the last few months are the first time in a very long time that I have not been training much at all. Ever since I found your videos years ago, I have been passionate about using and exploring kettlebells. Having fallen off of my training, I came to the workshop humbled and excited to learn from the perspective of a beginner. I learned so much from your workshop and my excitement and passion for training is refueled- which is HUGE! I am so excited, in particular, to get back to Single Leg Deadlifts. I learned I have been doing them wrong for years now and I can't wait to see the results of doing them correctly! Lol. Thank you so much for doing the work you do. You are super inspiring and your work has been a huge part of my personal development. :) <3 XO"
MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THE CLASS:
I really enjoyed the class I enjoyed that it was small, because I felt like we received a more personal training . And the fact that we had a manual to help guide us was more than I expected . The class was very well organized, what impressed me most was you really took a personal interest in each person , you really took the time to listen,watch and give thorough answers. We never felt rushed. Thank you and I look forward to taking a melt class now.
My daughter and I absolutely learned so much from your workshop and had fun doing it!! You helped me realized what I wasn’t doing correctly when I thought I was doing planks right! You also helped me realize that I don’t always have to go at 100 miles per hour when I work out that its ok to be relaxed at times when doing swings. I was so nervous to meet you in real life and when I showed up that all went away. Lauren you have this way of making people feel like your an old friend from long ago and you just make people feel welcome and relaxed and I thank you so much! I will definitely do a workshop again later on down the road and keep learning from such an amazing and beautiful person. Thank you for being you!
Much Love and Thanks

Safe Lunge Variations

Note: we will not spend half of the day on one exercise. After working with almost every body type and type of learner for the past 20 years, we will cover only the most effective ways to hone your skills in the essential exercises. If you have a limitation or an injury we will cover modifications and the best path for you. Most of your students and friends come with a history of limitations or exercises that are harmful or just not necessary. It doesn't make you or your student a bad person if you are unable to press weight over head properly. At least 25% of the people I've seen have should not be using load overhead. There are plenty of ways to work on moving in that direction while practicing other skills. We will discuss the optimal path for these individuals.
This workshop is open to all fitness levels, including instructors who want to sharpen their coaching skills and put only the necessary tools in their toolbox.
