We’re delighted to announce that LifeTree Media will be publishing strength trainer and trauma practitioner Laura Khoudari’s first book. Lifting Heavy Things is scheduled to be released under LifeTree’s Best Book program on May 25, 2021.
In her innovative debut book, Lifting Heavy Things, Laura Khoudari, a celebrated strength trainer and trauma practitioner, takes a fresh approach to healing and thriving after trauma, using strength training to heal. With irreverence, wit, and deep knowledge, Khoudari weaves in her own personal journey going from an angry and alienated teen smoker and gym class truant, to a twenty-seven year old with the back of a seventy year old, to a forty-year-old strength sports athlete and fitness professional who has reclaimed her power. Part personal story, part practical guide, and steeped in research, this book is a must-read for anyone on a healing path. Khoudari tenderly takes readers through the stages of healing from trauma from the ground up, offering practical applications of how to use training to heal and lift heavy things both physically and figuratively. Full of humor and charm, Lifting Heavy Things will allow revelations to come up naturally and empower you to arrive in your power.
The book will be available for sale in bookstores across North America and via online retailers on May 25, 2021.
