Well, today was my very first class and it KICKED MY BOOTY! You think bar and ballet = easy? WRONG! I know you can’t change your body with easy but I didn’t realize small isometric movements could be so painful (a good painful). At least you know its working and your getting your money’s worth. I have always done cardio and weights or had a personal trainer but a few months ago I decided to step outside my comfort zone and try new exercises. If you look under the exercise & diets category you will see others I’ve experienced recently. Anyways, Pure Barre lifts your seat, tones your thighs, abs and arms. You do exercises with the ballet bar, mat, 2 pound weights, a stretch band, and small medicine ball. Don’t be fooled by the 2 pound weights! They claim you can see results in 10 classes and I believe it! Its new to me so I felt like a fish out of water but I’m not going to let it stop me from conquering and going back. After all, I have to work off all this DELICIOUS FOOD I’m always cooking. 😉 Check it Out!
