Last week we got the amazing opportunity to speak with fitness and fascia expert Lauren Roxburgh. Personal trainer, mind-body-soul expert, teacher, and soon to be author, Lauren is truly an inspiration. With clients such as Gwyneth Paltrow, we just knew we would love her. She was very easy to talk to, and so happy to educate us on how to find our best bodies- think better metabolism, less cellulite, and more energy, yes please! — Megan Bourassa
How did you get into the fitness world?
When I was 16, my mom had cancer, and that prompted me to figure out what was going on regarding health, and the mind-body-soul connection. I went on to play competitive water polo, and then became a personal trainer and pilates instructor. All of these things fueled my curiosity.
What inspired you to create our own program?
I was getting so many clients when I was working as a personal trainer, that I felt I needed to make my services more accessible to a wider range of people. Foam rolling is beneficial to players of all sports, and people of all lifestyles. It helps with stress, allows you to sleep better, and helps digestion.
Explain your program Body Breakthru.
It is a foam rolling program aimed towards ‘breaking through your blueprint’. To help people break out of the physical, mental and emotional patterns they have been going through each day.
What is a ‘mind-body-soul’ fitness expert, and how does that differ from a regular fitness expert?
Fitness experts just focus on the body. But we also hold memories and emotions in our bodies. Emotional baggage. I do what is called fascia remodelling, which can help flush the body of toxins, and break through movement patterns. It is about more than just lifting dumbells. It is also about noticing how you feel- how grounded do you feel? How uplifted do you feel? How inspired do you feel?
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
I see a miracle everyday. People experiencing mind, body and emotional breakthroughs. It is always wonderful to watch people discover their best bodies. And I love to keep learning.
What is one tip you would give to someone who is looking to live a more healthy/active lifestyle?
Be present. Present in your body, and in the moment- where the joy and happiness exists.
