Hello all of you lovely readers and brides to be! Since we are in the throws of wedding season, I wanted to talk about a topic that I know many of my clients think about... how to tone up before their wedding nuptials. There is the usual running, weight training and run of the mill aerobics classes, but let's face it, they can boring and dated. I had been struggling to find a fun and inspiring workout for more years than I want to admit! I tried personal training, and while I enjoyed it, my wallet was losing weight faster than I was! Yoga and meditation didn't work for me, too quiet. Running was too hard on my knees and I found it boring. I could go on and on! It wasn't until my good friend and barre3 corporate master trainer Lisa Scale-Drake, introduced me to a fun and energizing workout system, that I began looking forward to exercising again!
For the past two months, I have been toning up and not with yoga, pilates or ballet, but with a combination of all 3! It's called barre3 and it's changed the way I live and workout. What is barre3, you ask. Barre3 is a low impact, total body work out, designed to burn fat and build muscle, set to the latest music so it feels like a fun party! You can do it anytime, any place and the workouts are highly effective, I can attest. I have been doing barre3 for 2 months and have already lost 10lbs, inches off my waist and thighs and have even smoothed out some of my cellulite! Since I have been in the states recently, I have been working out at the Morristown, NJ studio. However, since barre3 is not yet in Paris, when I'm back in the City of Light I can easily follow their online workouts.
NJ brides to be, you are in luck because barre3 Morristown offers a special program called the Balanced Bride Package. This package includes a 3-month unlimited subscription to studio classes, a reservation for your wedding party to take a class together before the big day and a wedding day prep bag, which includes a tote, core ball and barre3 DVD. You can tone up, strengthen and lengthen before your tie the knot! The classes are fun, the instructors are energetic and motivating and the studio is clean and bright. It really is a caring, supportive community.
So, what are you waiting for?! Head on into a studio or online and get moving!
