Guys, I have a serious obsession.
It's Pure Barre.
It all started when I won a giveaway for 3 classes on Neely's blog. I was in love with this.
However, I didn't keep up with it regularly. I took a class here and there. One in Nashville (when I went to Blissdom), one on my birthday when I got a free class, etc.
But this year, when I got my free birthday class, I decided to buy a package of classes. It's something I want to continue doing.
When Brittany contacted me to see if I was interested in attending a DFW blogger event at Pure Barre in Ft. Worth, I jumped at the chance. A way to socialize with other bloggers all while getting in a work out that I love for free? Count me in!
There's me doing some ab work. All while muttering swear words under my breath, I'm sure. ;)
I love PB because I can get in a good workout without feeling like I can't breathe. I hate exercises that take the breath out of me. These tiny, isometric movements do so much good for your muscles.

Each class consists of a warm-up, arm work, thigh work, seat work, ab work, back extensions and a cool down with lots of stretching.

Guys, this is something that I'm becoming passionate about. It's something I look forward to each day. It's my hour. I don't think of anything else but the workout. It's my time where I clear my mind of any worries.
I love what it does for my body. I hurt so good each class I take. I can tell how much more flexible I'm getting. And last week, I was wearing shorts and had to do a double take because I thought my thighs actually looked slender. It's pure barre, no doubt.
The prices for classes are a bit steep. But to me, it's worth it. I've never been a gym rat. I've never been one to enjoy getting sweaty and working out. It took me a long time to find an exercise that I actually enjoy. Pure Barre is it for me. In my opinion, that's what makes it worth it.
