I'll admit...I'm a bit bored with my routine right now. I've dropped strength training because I've been feeling drained on days where I run once, if not twice and since I incorporate HIIT with it, it's not like it's a low intensity activity.
Or maybe we dropping my strength training also has to do with the fact that I am super bored with my workout room. I miss attending a cooled gym, some fun fitness classes...yes, I miss having a gym membership.
I bought a groupon back in January for some barre classes, which I started taking 3, 4 weeks ago and to say I'm obsessed is an understatement. Maybe because it's new, maybe because they take place in schwanky gyms, or maybe because despite not dripping in sweat, I leave the facility with a burning in my muscles. I leave spent but energized. I've been able to incorporate it into my schedule on days where I train without me feeling ueber-exhausted. A huge plus right now as I'm trying to balance two very different aspects of my life.
Have you tried any barre classes?
There are so many different variations out there and each instructor has been so unique. It's been fabulous..
I'm sad to say that my class days are almost over... I'm about to exhaust my last introductory special tomorrow and then I'm on the hunt for some DVD's as class packages are ridiculously expensive... ranging from $15 - $19 a class depending on the package you purchase and drop in fees are typically $20!
If you are a barre enthusiast...any DVD's you can recommend?
