28 to Great Challenge: Day 1


I had to write a quick post about my new favorite thing: barre3! Barre3 is a chain of brick and mortar studios across the US that teach the barre method (workouts based on the principles of ballet that also mix in a healthy dose of yoga and pilates). I’m sure you’ve heard about studios popping up all over the US that teach barre workouts, but if you’re like me, the nearest one is probably over 100 miles away…

But! There is hope! What makes barre3 awesome is that for a low monthly price (cheaper than your Starbucks addiction) you can access all their workouts online. Your membership also includes tailored workout programs and an arsenal of recipes. The website is clean and easy to use (pick your workouts based on how much time you have!), and not to mention… the branding is spectacular.

I signed up for a $15/month subscription last night and went ahead and started one of their regimens: 28 to Great. I did my first workout this evening and it blew me away. Only 30 minutes long, but wow, my legs are aching. I love being sore after a good workout! I really feel like I needed to jazz things up a bit and barre3 was just the fresh take I needed. If you’re in a workout rut and have been needing to try something new, I encourage you to poke around their website.

Tomorrow I have a 60 minute workout… this should be interesting! Here’s to 27 more days!


P.S. I think this goes without saying, but barre3 has no idea who I am and this is not a paid ad. I came across their website while reading a long-time favorite blog of mine (Eat, Live, Run) and the rest is history! Now I’m just hoping that the cellulite on the back of my thighs will be history, too.

  1. Awesome Sara! I am very interested to read more of your thoughts on the class…do you stick with it doing it on your own, would you prefer to actually be in a class, etc.? I have heard so much about barre classes but have never tried one! I love Eat Live Run too :)

      Hey Sarah!

      Right now I am enjoying doing it by myself, but I think that’s because I’m still not used to the format of the workouts or the movements that are done frequently. In that aspect, I like that I can pause and rewind if I need to. I think once I get more familiar with the workouts I’d like to go to a class. Plus this would be a good excuse to by leg warmers… right? :)
