Let's Get Physical

T-minus 4 days until I begin a new adventure in my life. After about a year and a half of attending regular classes at Barre3, I have decided to become an instructor.  I am really looking forward to it as I haven't taught fitness classes since gradudate school.  Friday begins my 4 day intensive training, which will be followed by more training before it becomes official!

When I first started Barre3 I was skeptical of the difficulty given that I have been a competitive athlete all my life. Unfortunately 2 knee surgeries and 2 hip surgeries have left me worse for wear. Barre3 provides me the challenge I need in a workout without causing the aches and pains I get from so many activies. I even did this workout throughout my entire pregnancy, and I have no doubt it helped me stay in shape and bounce back quickly afterwards.

For those of you who are not familiar with Barre3, I highly suggest checking it out. They have studios all over the country (soon to be opening in D.C.) And, if there isn't a studio in your city, you can also buy the DVD.

And as for this having to do with fashion...well, I guess this means I need more cute workout clothes!
