If you follow me on social media, you know I’m a big fan of barre workouts.
I get a lot of people asking me “what is barre?” Barre combines movements from ballet, pilates and yoga for a low-intensity workout that produces BIG results. Studios offer workouts in a group setting that often include movements at the barre, on mats, and using props like resistance bands and fitness balls. And the music makes it all fun too!
My main studio that I go to is The Dailey Method San Diego. I’ve been going there for about 1.5 years and I LOVE it. They offer a variety of different class types for all different levels and BONUS for moms – childcare with some of the classes! The teachers are all very knowledgeable, especially our studio owner Ashley who is so passionate about her TDM community. I prefer The Dailey Method over other barre studios I’ve tried because the program really focuses on alignment and making sure you get the moves right. It’s also the first time I’ve found a workout that not only I enjoy, but also I’m motivated to stay consistent with it. I very much love being part of the TDM community and I hope if I ever move somewhere else there will always be a TDM closeby!
This month, TDM is hosting a great national challenge going on called The #AlignAndShine Challenge. The goal is to motivate students to go at least 4 times a week for 4 weeks and there is also an additional optional challenge to eat clean too. I’ve got a trip to Greece in a month and want to look good in bikini photos…so I’M IN!!! Plus, I like the idea of #AlignAndShine for the month of May and I’m making that my goal – both personally and professionally.
What motivates you to workout? Let’s motivate each other to #AlignAndShine!
