Workin' on my fitness(class)
So last weekend, I took my very first Barre Class. Don’t know what a Barre Class is? No worries I didn’t either.
BarreAmped is an intensive body shaping experience designed to produce reliable results, no matter the client. The method is influenced by classical and modern dance and utilizes a barre to achieve optimal positioning. Insights from Pilates, yoga, and orthopedic stretching also balance the method’s unique approach. Mat, hand towel, and all class accessories provided. Please arrive 15 minutes early for your first class.
I had no idea what I was getting into; as long as I was toning muscles and burning calories I was in.
The class was HARD. Like real HARD. We started the class with arms, only using 2 pound weights. OH MY WORD, hurt. Think 2 minutes of arm toning with no breaks. We did reps of slow controlled movements. Then we moved to legs. We used a small ball between our legs and did small compressions. #KILLME. We also did slow movements and then we lifted to our toes and did squats. My legs were shaking the entire time. I could not walk the next day. I highly recommend this class if you are looking to tone.
Monday night I took a HIIT CLASS. Don’t know what a HIIT Class is? I didn’t either…
What I thought:
I highly recommend this class as well.
What do you do to stay fit in the winter months?
