Am I a Barre-bie yet?

For the last 8 weeks, I have been taking barre classes. I’d heard amazing things about them so my interest had been piqued. I was told barre classes were challenging, a great workout, and fun. So after signing up for classpass, I figured why not give it a chance. Well…. I’m totally obsessed. However, those who have taken barre know, there’s several stages you go through in class. So I figured why not express the thought process I go through via gifs to fully describe the experience.

1. Excitement?

So Barre? Yeah? Let's do this!

2. Warm Up/ How does everyone already know what’s happening?

How is everyone already moving in unison?

3. Arms – 3lbs weights aren’t heavy

Yeah, I got this! Let's get ripped.

4. Arms – 3lbs weights will cause my arms to fall off

Can't keep going. But can not stop! Power through!

5. Planks – How does everything in my body feel at once?

Not even Wesley could help me now.

6. abs? Wait that wasn’t abs?

So is that all the ab work?

7. Thighs… I got this

Pulse, Pulse, Pulse... Tuck, Tuck, Tuck

Pulse, Pulse, Pulse… Tuck, Tuck, Tuck

8. Thighs… AHH Why do we have to do the other side?

Stop shaking legs! Stay strong!

9. Glutes – Hold up… Have I always had those muscles?

How am I doing that? That's a new muscle.

10. Glutes – Are my legs supposed to shake this much?

Come on legs you can do this!

11. Abs… oh these are the ab exercises

Obliques, top abs, lower abs... where did all the abs come from?

12. Bridges – Soo close! Do not give up!

Almost done! Bridges mean it's almost over... right?

13. Stretching. Yay!

Stretching! I did it! Yay!

Stretching! I did it! Yay!

14. Everything hurts but I feel amazing! When can I do this again? Tomorrow okay!?!

Stronger

So do you do barre classes? So far I’ve tried Pure Barre, Xtend Barre, and Barre tech. Which one is your favorite? Is there another I should try?
