Plié...Relevé...I'm hooked

No, I am not planning on becoming fluent in French, I took a Barre fitness class Monday night and I may be addicted.
All my ballet training came back to me

I thought to myself as I'm embarking on my new healthier lifestyle, I should try other things for a workout instead of just going to the gym. I had been looking to do a class for awhile and finally got the courage to go out and try something new. For those who know me know that I do not like trying new things for just fear that I will suck at it. This class was not like that at all.

When you tell people you are taking a Barre class you get a lot of the same questions; Is it dancing? What type of stuff do you do on the bar? Is it an all leg workout? And of course, I had similar questions before I started.

It is not a dance class, it takes the fundamentals of ballet and incorporates them into a workout.

The bar is used as a balance tool, most of the leg and arm workouts are done on the bar, but you also do a floor workout which works your core as well as your legs and arms.

No it is not just a leg workout, but trust me your legs will certainly feel it the most and for a few days after!

The class was amazing and I was sweating within the first five minutes. 60 minutes later I walked out of the studio feeling accomplished. One I tried something new and two it was one of the best workouts I think I've ever done. I loved the class and not to mention the studio so much that I am going back on Thursday to try out their Core Conditioning class! More to come on that!

As well as encouraging you all to go out and try something new in the fitness world. I am strongly encourage you to take a listen to Lea Michele's new album that came out on Monday. I may be biased because I've followed her since she's been on Glee and she is just an inspiration all together but the album is amazing and I have not stopped listening to it. Let me know what you think!

She is for sure my girl crush
Everyone enjoy your Wednesday!
