Now to some of you reading this who have never done a Barre class...you may be thinking 'ya sure...that's cause you did 8 hours.' However....to those who have experienced a class....you know that only 60 minutes can kick your ass! I mean....we did 2 minutes of calf work...and I may not walk down stairs properly for a few days....I feel like I ran the Boston Marathon (which we all know will never happen)!
But let me recap! I was excited to meet new people who were all there for the same reason....to better ourselves and to pass on an amazing workout to others. We quickly got down to business as our BarrEast manuals were handed out.
|Pretty sure people were wondering|
why I was taking pictures of everything
|Those are 2 pound weights!|
And then it was onto 'theory' time. Now when I hear theory, I'm like 'yawn...boring'...but nope...this theory was more 'active'. That's right...we continued to work through each 'section' of a class and practice the moves and what we'd say in an actual class. Let me just say....by about 4pm...I was exhausted. The instructor then threw in another 45 minute class...I couldn't. I have 3 classes to teach today at 360Fit...I have to be able to move...LOL. (edited to add: "And most of the participants were 10-12 years my junior....whippersnappers...LOL)
Now all I have to do is video tape me doing a 'mock' class and send it to the instructors for critique...wonder if I can find some volunteers to help me. :-)
I'm going to try and see if I can bring it to 360Fit somehow, but in the mean time....watch out members because I'll be throwing some Barre stuff into the regular classes for sure! Please check out a Barre class near you and get ready to have some fun (cause there is kick ass music as well)!
