From the A-list bodyworker, trainer, and alignment expert dubbed “the body whisperer” by Goop comes Taller, Slimmer, Younger—a powerfully simple daily foam roller routine to help you sculpt longer, leaner muscles, stand an inch taller, look ten pounds slimmer, and renew your body and mind. Are you ready to roll?
ALIGN YOUR BODY, ALIGN YOUR LIFE
There’s a new buzzword in the fitness world: fascia. It’s the connective tissue that wraps around your muscles and organs and helps keep everything in place. But in our increasingly busy and often stressful lives, tension and toxins are often stored within our fascia, resulting in serious long-term consequences including poor posture, excess weight, acute anxiety, and chronic pain.
Fitness and alignment expert Lauren Roxburgh—who has worked with such stars as Gwyneth Paltrow, Gabby Reece, Melissa Rauch, and Baron Davis—has the solution to keep your fascia supple, flexible, and strong. Using only a foam roller, you can reshape and elongate your muscles for a leaner, younger look, while also releasing tension, breaking up scar tissue, and ridding yourself of toxins. In just fifteen minutes a day, Roxburgh’s 21-day program will guide you through a simple series of unique rolling techniques that target ten primary areas of the body, including the shoulders, chest, arms, legs, hips, butt, back, and stomach. The result is a healthy, balanced, aligned body that not only looks but feels fantastic.

“If you’ve never tried foam rolling, I highly recommend it. [Lauren Roxburgh’s] program is designed to improve posture, release tension and stress, activate and strengthen the core, and heal from the inside out. When I was a model, I used a foam roller to lengthen my muscles. I’m so excited to get back into it once I give birth! Oh, and Goop dubbed her ‘The Body Whisperer.’ Enough said.”
