If you remember this post, it was my first time attending a Ballet Barre technique class and I wanted to die and run out half way through because it kicked my bootie! Well, since then I have become obsessed. Instead of going to a local studio to exercise I do it in my pjs–nice & comfy at home. At times I get questions asking what I do to exercise or stay fit… especially for a busy momma. I haven’t been doing it very long but if you are looking for a new exercise you should try Physique 57.
No one is telling me to write this… it’s just if you find something great you want to share it with your friends! Like the perfect lipstick shade or springtime heels.
Why I love it:
It targets exactly where I need to tone up and strengthen.
It focuses on posture during the workout which is great since I am the queen of slouching.
It works your “seat” like no other!
It tones your entire body and builds muscle as well as lengthening. Reminds me of when I used to take a mix of Pilates and Yoga class at my local gym.
It is great when you are pregnant. (I just don’t do the ab section.)
The only thing is since they are DVDs you have to be self motivated, but because I can see a change in my body it gets me excited to do it again and again. Seriously.
Also, you don’t need a ballet barre… just a chair and some weights.
I should change out of my polka dot PJs and try exercising in a tutu instead. And I probably shouldn’t eat Valentine chocolate while I am posting about exercising.
What are your workout favorites…? Do share.
