Frankly, I was not.
Ballet was NOT in my repertoire of things I enjoyed or ever wanted to enjoy.
I have as much grace leaping in the air as a baby elephant – that being said, I’ve never turned down a challenge.
So when my fitness company announced we would be launching a barre/pilates/cardio program I perked my ears and said, aiiiiight.
Mostly, because I absolutely ADORE Elise Joan. She was one of the four yoga instructors that created our 3 Week Yoga Retreat program and my personal favorite. If she was doing this – it had to be good.
So I did the sample workout as SOON as it came available.
Then I died a short death right after.
I did not realize a 2 lb weight could feel like a small car in my hands. It was brutal and my leaping was VERY baby elephant level. No grace. At all.
HOWEVER, I was S W E A T I N G and I felt elated in the strangest way! I couldn’t stop smiling, and I felt strong and like my posture was INSTANTLY better. Whatever this program was, I knew it was special. I was actually excited to train in a more feminine way including elements like GRACE into my movement.
Here’s a trailer of the program itself:
As a result of this enthusiasm I decided to start my own fitness challenge group for this particular program starting January 13th! That’s THE day we close on our new house in Florida (surprise we’re moving!) and the PERFECT way to start 2020 feeling LIT.
Here’s a video where I talk about what’s included in the group I’m hosting and what to expect!
Whhhhattttttt?! TWO GROUPS!? YEP.
One group will be dedicated to Barre Blend and the other will be committed to cleaning up our relationship to food! So no matter where you are on your journey or what goals you have, you will have a place to check in and get SUPPORT.
If this sounds exciting to you and you’d like to consider joining our group and/or try the sample workout, fill out the health assessment form below so I can get to know you on a deeper level. I’m so excited to help you fall in love with taking care of you in 2020.
My Own 8 Week Barre Results:
So after completing my FIRST round of Barre Blend here are my results! I could not believe how much changed for me after my first 8 weeks. I’m so excited to do a second round and share those results.
