One of my New Years goals was to be actively more health conscious, and to find a workout routine that works for me. The weather has been so cold here, that running outside for the moment is out. I don't particularly enjoy running when the weather is nice, let alone when the wind chill is below zero.
Does anyone else hate going to the gym? Not, "I hate going to the gym to work out". I hate the actual getting ready and driving to and from the gym. I feel like I have to get ready and look presentable to go to the gym to workout when I am just going to get sweaty and gross. Plus, it wastes time out of my day. Maybe it's just me.
For the last few months, I have been wanting to try barre classes. I have read great things online, and it seems something I think I would actually enjoy. So I looked into it. Unfortunately the only place they offer these, is 40 min from my house. And I just don't know that driving over an hour for each class is justifiable. I am hoping that this will become more popular and maybe migrate down to my side of the city. Until then, I have been contemplating using the Pure Barre at home videos.
The reviews online for this are all pretty great. But I also know, that even the best video doesn't take the place of a real time class. It just isn't quite the same. There is noone to correct your technique as you do it, you can't ask questions, etc. So this is my dilemma.
Has anyone else out there tried these classes or these videos at? Or have an opinion about how well this would work?
I spent my Tuesday off cleaning, doing laundry, and entertaining the pup. Nothing too exciting for this girl, and my outfit of the day consisted of sweats and a long sleeve tee. How glamorous.
I looked up at one point to see Ollie doing this little pose. Creeper much?
Have a happy Wednesday ladies, and send me your thoughts!
