YOU SHOULD ALWAYS BE THE BEST YOU THAT YOU CAN BE.
My first class yesterday was such a great wake up call. I had to remind myself to breathe. I had to encourage myself to keep going. I had to be understanding that my body wasn’t used to the Pure Barre workout. I had to remember progress takes time and won’t happen overnight. I had to push through the pain and keep going.
I loved the continuous focus throughout class on tucking in your hips & “seat” (I love that they call it that too! It sounds so much classier than butt hehe!) – it completely activated my core in a way it’s not used to. I loved the small concentrated movements that may not look like much to an outsider, but totally rip you to pieces and work you to the bone! Overall, I just love Pure Barre so far. I should note – I am sore today, in such a great way though. I can still move – which is a huge plus. However, because of the concentrated movements, I can really feel which muscles were worked (for instance, my triceps and obliques are feeling it the most). I’d almost say it’s like a deeper sense of soreness – one that leaves me trusting the effectiveness of the Pure Barre workout and hungry to go back for more.
::5th & Finally::
Since I really want to see the transformation that my body and mind experience from committing to Pure Barre Pasadena, I thought it would be important to track my progress with actual statistics. So, as much as it may pain me to expose myself to this degree…
Here’s me, right now, at the starting line:
*Note: I refused to do the typical “sad face” starting line pictures because I am happy with my current state – I just want to improve even more!
