I’m jumping into the last week of Spring it On like…
I would guess most of you know I teach Barre, TBC, and Pre/Post Natal at The Barre Code, but if not…now you do 🙂 I love my studio for so many reasons.
1. It is an incredible community of women who ACTUALLY care about each other. Seriously, everyone says Hi to each other, asks about each others lives, talks about vacations, and is really just there to have a good time.
2. I prefer it to other Barre studios because of the plethora of classes we offer. Its not just barre/yoga/pilates. Its also kickboxing (brawl), Dance (barre-dio), High Intensity (HIIT), Total Body Conditioning (TBC), and Barre/Yoga/Pilates. I came for the Brawl, I stayed for the incredible community.
3. We’re all about YOU! How to get your body in the right position, how to modify for your injuries/needs, how to get the most out of YOUR workout and health. I love the client focus and I think its part of why I’ve stuck around as long as I have. It’s empowering to feel that you can go workout and it will be customized to you.
Anyways, three times a year (ish) we do a 3 week challenge where the goal is to take 15+ classes in 21 days. I actually got started at the studio by doing a 3 week challenge, and then the Owner asked if I’d want to be an instructor. The rest is history.
We’re 2 weeks through this year’s and it will be my 6th challenge (not to mention my 4th Pregnant). It’s crazy looking back on the challenges and the incredible group of women I am lucky enough to surround myself with. So even though I’m 34 Weeks pregnant, I’ll be finishing the challenge at 35. This week is Restore so tomorrow we have a 75 min Yoga Flow class that I’m really excited about, even though I know this bump will be partially in the way LOL. There is just no avoiding it now.
This is not a sponsored post, honestly this is just a review. I took Barre at 2 other studios (that I won’t name) and HATED it. The class, the workout, the atmosphere. I felt out of place, out of shape, and out of the loop. It was TERRIBLE. I had vowed never to take another one. Luckily, my studio won the Best in Plano for their Brawl (kickboxing/barre) class and I was tempted to try it. Without that article I’d have NEVER gotten into it, and I would be missing out.
What do you guys do to stay in shape? While/While not pregnant. Do you enjoy it? I find making friends at a small studio keeps me WAY more engaged than just going to a big gym.
