Barre Class

Tried a new workout today! I like to try new workouts with my friends because we can all laugh at how ridiculous I look trying to get the moves down πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†Β It’s also a great way to make new friends!
We went to our first barre class today at Pure Barre in Centerville OH. Now walking in, as usually is the case, I was the biggest woman by at least 25 pounds. And also as usual, I didn’t let that deter me! Don’t get intimated by other people’s bodies and fitness levels- you do you!
Now this class is a kind of mix between Pilates, yoga, and ballet bar exercises. The whole class is really about using isometric exercises to improve core strength. My core is definitely my weakest area- if you slice me open you won’t find muscles but marshmallow fluff! So this class was really hard for me, to get the right form and then sustain the exercises was a lot of work!!! The class instructor was good about correcting form- but I definitely could have used more information on how to modify the exercises to suit me personally. I will definitely go back and do this again, and I will keep working at it till I can keep up with everyone else!

Bonus points for music including Kelly Clarkson’s version of It’s Quiet Uptown… definitely won me over with that cause you know I’m a Hamilton freak!!!
