Barre3 – Ballet, Pilates, Yoga, and a lot of fun!

I have been taking Barre3 classes now for about 3 months.  I don’t have a before and after picture of my bootay…that actually makes me laugh just thinking of doing one!  Haha but my behind is at least 2 inches higher because of these classes.  I don’t weigh myself but determine how my body is doing by the fit of my jeans!  They always tell the truth!  😉

I love these classes and just had to blog about them.  They incorporate it all…ballet, pilates, yoga, weight lifting, good music, and excellent instructors who push you to your limit and keep you motivated.  My posture is better as well.  I stand up straighter and taller and just feel so strong through my core.  I started taking these classes because my running days were over…or so I thought.

My joints just started hurting too much on my runs which really bummed me out because running and listening to great music relaxed me and cleared my head of things.  So I checked out other workouts and thought I would try these Barre classes I had heard so much about.  I signed up on a Groupon deal and went every single day.   Lifting heavy weights and doing lots of cardio is what I thought had to be done to really tone up your body.  Boy was I wrong!  I was so sore after these classes, just the same as if I had lifted heavy weights or gone for a long run (without the joint pain).  They truly are amazing and work out every part of your body.

This picture is of the Horse Pose that we do a lot.  All the detailed instructions in this pic is what they tell you in class.  They talk you through every pose and really care about making sure everyone is doing it correctly because they want you to get results.  Your legs will start to shake and that’s a good thing!  Shaking equals transformation!

Back to my running days that were gone or so I thought.  I went for a run the other day and my legs have never felt stronger.  I would have run longer if it wasn’t so darn cold outside.  But these classes also work out your tendons which keep all your bones and muscles in place.  Ahhhhhhhh…now I have the best of both worlds!

I can’t say enough about how great Barre3 is and highly recommend them.

Eating to nourish is one thing, but moving to nourish is also as important.  We weren’t meant to sit around!  You have to move your body in order for everything to run smoothly.

Make it a great day~
