Unleash Your Inner Athlete With New "FIT AS A PRO" Workout DVDs From Olympic Medalist Lauren Sesselmann

MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 03/19/14 -- Professional soccer star Lauren Sesselmann firmly believes, "Everyone is an athlete in their own way." Her own athletic training has taken her to the 2012 Olympics and gained her professional status. Now she wants to share her favorite workouts with anyone looking to up their own fitness game and get into their best shape possible. Her "Fit as a Pro: Five 10-Minute Full Body Workouts for Small Spaces" and "Fit as a Pro: Five 10-Minute Full Body Workouts" DVDs are available now on www.amazon.com and on www.FitAsAPro.com from Café Oscuro Films, LLC for $19.98 each. They are appropriate for all fitness levels. More information is available from @fitasapro and on Facebook at Fit As A Pro.

Sesselmann knows first-hand that professional athletes have challenges finding the time between traveling, practice and games to train effectively. When they're on the road, often a hotel room workout is the only option. Sesselmann credits these take-with-you-anywhere 10-minute routines for getting her more functionally fit than she's ever been before. She knows they will help others whether they're training for an event, going for a smaller size or simply trying to get through the day with more energy and strength. Leaner legs, a firmer butt and flatter abs will also result from consistent use.

"Fit as a Pro: Five10-Minute Full Body Workouts for Small Spaces" is designed to work just about anywhere -- a bedroom, hotel room; many moves are even cubicle-friendly. The options include two equipment-free total body workouts, a barre-inspired chair workout, a pillow workout, a boot camp-style cardio circuit plus the warm up and cool down.

"Fit as a Pro: Five 10-Minute Full Body Workouts" includes a full body workout that may be done with nothing more than a water bottle. The other menu options are a cardio and agility workout (a jump rope is optional), jumping, abs and towel circuits plus warm up and cool down. The Pilates-inspired ab workout is done on the floor and works the core from every angle. The towel circuit involves challenging gliding moves done with washcloths on a bare floor.

Both DVDs may be played one segment at a time or all the way through. Sesselmann worked with fitness expert, presenter and fourth degree black belt Guillermo Gomez to make the workouts accessible and effective for all fitness levels.

Lauren Sesselmann has worked with team trainers and personal trainers throughout her athletic career. Her "Fit As a Pro" DVDs reflect the training she has created to be in her best personal shape ever. It was the training that took her, as part of the Canadian Women's Soccer Team, to their gold medal win at the 2011 Pan American Games and bronze medal in the Summer, 2012 Olympics. Once a fan of heavy weights, squatting 300 pounds, Sesselmann credits these moves with giving her the speed, agility, strength and flexibility to excel on the field and off. This is the same training she's doing to prepare for the 2015 World Cup. Lauren is expected to join the National Women's Soccer League's new Houston Dash for their debut season this spring.

Café Oscuro Films, LLC is an independent film production company with offices in Miami and Los Angeles. They believe in innovative, inspiring and quality film production based on the talents of individuals who believe in cinema as the best form of expression of their professional ability and passion. The "Fit As a Pro" series is their first production in the fitness genre. Their thriller, "Nevermore," is slated for theatrical release later this year and will co-star "Fit As a Pro's" Lauren Sesselmann.
