fitness Jan 16, 2018

**Disclaimer:  This was filmed less than two weeks before Lauren's son Shane as born a week ago on 1/10!

We love sculpting strong and feminine arms so this 12-minute workout is the perfect pre or post-natal upper body workout because it's a low-impact burner!  Grab your interval timer because we go through the first 3 minutes with you and then you are on your own for the final 3 rounds!  See below for exercise descriptions.
