I’m a huge fan of trying new forms of exercise. I’m part runner, but right now I’m into spinning. I say part runner because I’ll do it for a while, get into doing 5-7 miles and then stop because I get bored with my routes or get bored running alone. (I just combatted the running alone bit by finding a running team in my town. Now I can check that excuse off the list.) And spinning will be fad for now too, cause I’m going to hit that moment where I’ll be doing it for a while and then think, “why the heck am I signing up for this?”
But today my boss recommended The Bar Method, an exercise that combines pilates, ballet and I guess yoga too. I’ve heard of it on tv and from random people but I’ve never actually seen a class or how a session runs, but I’m thinking of trying. When I was a kid I did ballet for like a year or two so it’ll be interesting to see how I do. But the thing that totally won me over are the celebrity reviews and I’m a complete sucker for them. I know I’m being silly since celebs have nothing to do but work out and look fabulous. But just look at Kelly Osbourne.
I’m thinking of giving it a try. Hey if it can help me get from where I am to where I want to be, I’m all over it. Anyone have experience with The Bar Method? Any prep before I walk into a studio this weekend would be great.
