Pure Barre: Lift. Tone. Burn.

Hey ya'll.
Remember when I posted about how I've been working out?

Still true!

Ladies (and gents), please let me introduce you to:


I am so freaking obsessed with this class.

Basically:
It is a low-impact, high results, self esteem boosting, body changing hour of awesomeness.

The whole concept is a workout designed to change your body and reshape a woman's trouble areas:
Abs.
Seat (butt, yo)
Thighs.

Pure Barre is relatively new, but it is catching on quickly!  In just the last few months I've been doing it, I've seen an increase in how much people are talking about " Lift. Tone. Burn."

Here is a lovely quote from my friend Rachel.  She has been doing PB for a while, but took a few weeks off:
When I said after class:
"My body is dead.  Do it again Saturday?"
She replied:
"I feel like a person who has never walked in their life and decided to run 10 miles...count me in."

That sums it up.  PB is the most personally challenging workout I have ever done, and as a result, it is also the most rewarding-- and addicting.

I am telling you what, friend.
It will kick your ass.
And then you will thank it.
Because the ass it just kicked is so hawt now.
Since now you is in shape, girl.


The hour long class is broken down so that different areas of your body get isolated attention
Warm up
Arms
Thighs
Seat
Abs
Cool Down.

Here is my general experience:

I went to my first class with my sister at the end of January.
10 minutes in I am thinking: Why the hell am I here?  This sucks!  I am never doing this again!
20 minutes in I'm thinking: I didn't even freaking know there was a muscle there!
30 minutes in I'm thinking: MY LEGS ARE ON FIRE
40 minutes in I'm thinking: Oh, but its quite nice.
By the end:  Where do I sign?  I need to come back tomorrow.

The workout is amazing because it allows you to challenge yourself.
Each move has different levels of difficulty, so as you gain experience, you know how to push your body further into that "shake zone" you will learn to love.



I've been to the Hyde Park location and the Ft. Wright location in Kentucky and both are fantastic. 
The instructors are freakin' awesome and the level of focus from the other girls in the class is contagious.
You don't even have time to talk because everyone is so into their own workout.

Go once and you'll never want to quit.

The folks at PB recommend you attend 3-4 times a week to get the max results, and trust me, once you get hooked, that will seem like nothing.

I promise.

Your first class is free, so you have no excuse not to get off your butt and try it out.

Be prepared to work hard, and take note to listen to instruction.  All of the work happens in a super tiny movement, so you'll want to be sure you're doing it right.

Go.
Get hot.
Report back.

Or, do you already go?  What location?  Who is your fave instructor? What is your fave move?

And remember:
"The higher the heels the thinner the thighs"
