You have probably seen me mention on my Friday posts, going to 'Barre' to work out this weekend! Hope to take a few 'Barre' classes this weekend! etc, and or something along those lines. Well it's true I was. I mean I am!!! For the past year and a half, almost closer to two years by now, I have been attending multiple Barre Bee Fit classes a week in addition to the gym. To say I am in love would be an understatement.... I'm head over heels in love!
I first went after purchasing an online deal for discounted classes, just looking to add something into the standard, run - lift weights routine. And to 'see' what a barre method style-class was all about! I get bored at the 'regular gym' easily and I needed something the would engage me. Engage my mind and leave me wanting more. After college when all team sports finally ended for me, I missed interaction with others in a 'positive, we are in this together' while we work out sense. That empty feeling I get after the gym, is so NOT Barre!
It's a positive enviroment. It's encouragement to be your best you. It's pushing yourself, what are you capable of, what do you want to get out of your workout. All while creating a community of other strong, like minded women around you. And I love it!! The constant words of encouragement to push myself to my limit really struck a cord with me. It was a workout that I could determine what I wanted as an end result. My level of determination would lead me to my goals! And after years of competitive sports, that spoke to me. I have and always will be my own worst enemy, but on the days I want to give up - I have a positive teacher holding me accountable and pushing me to do more! And that's what spoke to me, and my admiration for Barre Bee fit grow!
I can do more 'real' pushups now than I have ever been able to ever in the history of ever! I have definition in my abs. Oh yes I said it! And I have definition in my arms that no weight lifting obtained!
I AM NOW A BARRE BEE FIT TEACHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Full fledged, I am a one women butt-kicking show! :) HA! No but seriously, I love it so much, why not teach some classes ?! So I jumped in. I have been in training off and on for the past few months - stupid work getting in the way! ;)
But ladies and gents, it's here, COME LET ME KICK YOUR REAR!!!! If you are in Chicago, please come and try out the studio (Ladies only!) and come see me! I would love for you to try what I am so in love with!
If you have any questions please let me know, I am more than happy to answer them for you!
