How do you feel your body has changed from barre classes?
I started barre for two reasons. (1) I had a horrific knee injury that has limited the type of physical activity I can do. Barre was low impact but packed a big punch of working all of my muscles to keep me in shape. Barre has continued to build the strength in my injured leg and has made a difference. It’s helped me with my range of motion. Barre has been a great therapy for me. (2) I love how barre makes you lean and stay in great shape. I can definitely see the difference in the fit in my pants. Long and lean all the way!! It has really chiseled my arms and flattened my tummy.
What is your favorite part of coming to Barre Centric classes?
My favorite part of class is the “community” that we have at Barre Centric. Everyone is talkative and pleasant. It’s nice to know I can go into barre and feel comfortable working out. No judgements…only support. I also love the availability of class hours. I’m big on going first thing in the morning. It energizes me for the rest of the day.
Advice for anyone who is thinking about trying their first barre class?
Be open! This is a supportive community. It’s a practice and with a practice, you’ll constantly learn and strive to do better. One day you may be on and the other you may be tired and can’t plié as low as the day before. Keep your head high and keep pushing. Everyone is there to help:)
