One of my goals of 2014 is to get more fit. I think this year has been a little bit of an awakening that actually, I can't eat Chipotle, truffle mac & cheese, BBQ, and more Chipotle over the course of a week because my pants will not fit. So I joined the YMCA in April and quickly realized that I actually do enjoy working out! What a concept! My problem is that I like group workouts. I'm terrible at making my own workouts because I get bored easily and have a hard time finding motivation to go. I found a couple that I like at the Y, but they are only offered once a week, so it's hard to get a regular schedule and really see results in my body (ie being toned).

Luckily for me, one of my former co-workers opened Barre3 a couple weeks ago, and I am loving it. Like so many other barre classes, you do use the ballet barre, but you also incorporate pilates and yoga into the workouts. Each teacher does something a little different each class, so it's not super repetitive, which is good for me. You also have to sign up and can only cancel an hour before class. This is great because it holds me responsible for going. I don't want to pay an extra $15 just because at the last minute I "didn't feel like working out"! I've been to 4 classes so far, and I feel like I'm already seeing results (although maybe I'm just being super optimistic). I'm excited to see what changes just a couple of months will bring! I highly recommend joining Barre3 if it's in your area, and if not, I'm sure there are other great options.

Have you all ever tried a barre class? What did you think?

A barre class is such a great idea! I get so tired of doing the same cardio workout everyday. I'll have to check out my area a great barre class!
