This past week was the most exercise I have had in a very long time, and it felt great! I'm sure you already read about my rooftop yoga experience on Thursday here, and then Friday I was wonderfully hosted by Barre3 Powell to try out my very first barre class with some of my favorite bloggers!
If you don't know what Barre is, it's basically yoga, pilates, and ballet intertwined. Well not ballet dancing per se, but the types of workouts that dancers typically do to get that strong, toned, fit body. You would be shocked at how much burn you feel when doing these small, isometric movements. My legs were literally shaking during the workout but it was also so much fun, the music was great, and the teachers were both motivational but also considerate of those who needed modifications and / or adjustments to make sure you had the right posture. They seemed to really care that everyone was performing accurate and safe movements which is so important.
After the class we were treated to some delicious bowls from Corelife Eatery. I had the Southwest Grilled Chicken & Wild Rice Bowl and it was SO good. And this is coming from a junk food addict. I am definitely feeling some inspiration to buy a membership (which includes childcare by the way) and actually start eating healthier as well. I mean maybe healthy food can actually taste good? Who woulda thunk?
As a mom, Barre3 cannot get any more perfect. The bathrooms are huge and there are showers and everything you need to get ready after you are through sweating it out. Plus, the kids will have a blast in the fun childcare area while you workout. My first thought when touring the facility? "I wonder if I can get a shower in while they still watch the kids?" So you are telling me I can workout, have me time, AND take an uninterrupted shower? Sold!
