Getting comfortable with feeling uncomfortable is an essential part of making progress on any strength training journey, and our new program, Lift with Laura, is here to help you push the limits of your comfort zone and take your lifting to another level. 

Created by strength and conditioning coach and CrossFit athlete Laura Roberts, this six-week program is a fiery blend of heavy lifting, cardio conditioning and foundational sessions to develop your skills with Olympic-style lifting. 

As Laura knows all too well, lifting weights isn’t just about expanding your beliefs about what you’re capable of in the gym, it’s also about boosting your overall confidence and expanding your sense of what is possible in life. 

“I honestly look forward to training every day because I know how it makes me feel afterwards. I love that it’s a challenge and it makes me feel strong, fit and confident,” Laura says.

“I just remember feeling so strong and got addicted to it. Learning and becoming at least 1% better each day became my main goal. Once I achieve something, I’m like okay what’s next!?”

Want to try a Lift with Laura workout? We’ve got you. This full-body strength training workout from week one will give you a taster of some of the exercises, plus an idea of how each session is structured. Get ready for a combination of heavy compound exercises that work multiple major muscle groups, accessory movements, and conditioning to level up your strength and fitness even more.
