#SharedSecrets: Episode 4

The Secret to the Taller, Slimmer, Younger You with Lauren Roxburgh

12/16/15

My guest in this week’s episode of Shared Secrets is here to share a secret I think we all want to hear: how to become taller, slimmer and younger versions of ourselves using only a foam roller.

Lauren Roxburgh is a fitness and alignment expert with an A-list clientele that incudes Gwyneth Paltrow, Gabrielle Reece and Melissa Rauch, among others. In her forthcoming book, Taller, Slimmer, Younger: 21 Days to a Foam Roller Physique, she describes how to reshape and elongate your muscles for a leaner, younger look, while also releasing tension, breaking up scar tissue and ridding yourself of toxins.

The secret lies in the fascia, and in this podcast, Lauren will explain how keeping your fascia supple, flexible, and strong can make a huge difference in how you look and feel. Don’t worry—she’ll also describe what your fascia is, if you’re a bit rusty on your anatomy.

I’ll also share how working with Lauren has helped me to remedy my own back discomfort—a longstanding problem that flared up after I got pregnant at 42. I’ll talk about how the foam roller routine she taught me has truly made me look and feel better.
