Barre-ing It All!

Ever want to be a ballerina as a little girl, dreaming of dancing around on your tiptoes & twirling around in circles? Nope, me neither! I loved to dance to the beat of my own drum (sometimes that included flailing arms and other silly tactics), but it wasn’t until a few years into my adult life that I actually started to love choreographed dancing. I’ve mostly danced for fun or fitness purposes. Things like Zumba & a few hip-hop classes have been my thing in the past and then of course, line dancing for fun nights out. However, never in a million years did I think I would actually give barre workouts a shot. Its been on the scene for a few years now, there’s a few different methods out there (I have only taken one, but I am sure they are all pretty similar). I came across a deal a month ago & decided to give it a shot. It had me hooked from day one. I had been spinning & lifting for a few months beforehand, maxing out weights, but of course, not wanting to be too “jacked” up. I need something that switches up often to keep me interested & with this, its always changing. So what all does it entail? I can’t give too much away, but tiny little movements that make your muscles shake like crazy is a pretty decent summation. The studio that I go to is a Pure Barre studio and the ladies that teach the classes are fantastic. They will come around the room and make adjustments to your body and help you as much as you need. They are always around before and after classes for any questions comments or concerns. Honestly, I have taken the class without a “workout buddy” & have never actually felt uncomfortable. As for results, I have noticed a lot of changes overall including better posture. My biggest improvement after a month is that I can actually get myself into a split stretch and my goal is to touch the floor one of these days. Tight hips are always a problem for me as a runner. So I just signed up for my second month and plan on continuing to tuck, tighten, and tone with this amazing workout. I hope that you find a little motivation in this to try something new for yourself!
