One Slightly Out of Shape MOBster Attempts Barre3 June Challenge.
I am your typical 21st century mamapreneur. I am a devoted wife and proud mother of two kiddos (Max, 12 and Ella, 6). I co-own a lovely little Preschool and I am the sole owner of Sitter Soiree, LLC. With all of the responsibility that comes with holding all of these wonderful things above flood stage, it has been waaaay to easy to permanently park myself next-to-last on the priority list. The weather this past (cough, cough) “spring” has turned me into a lackluster, cranky mama who is permanently wearing a couple of thick winter sweaters (only they are not winter sweaters, if you know what I mean).
Summer is just about here, and I need to get energized! I need to bump myself up on the priority list and embrace summer with both (slightly flabby) arms. When I heard about Barre3’s June challenge, I knew I was in!
Barre3 is the brainchild of Chris & Sadie Lincoln. Barre 3 is where ballet barre meets yoga and pilates. I was a B3 addict a couple of years ago. I am embarrassed to admit that it has-been over a year since I have stepped into a B3 studio. According to Barre3.com, some of the benefits to this brilliant tri-cocktail of exercise penchants are:
*Fast body shaping results and long-term postural benefits.
*Builds longer, leaner muscles and a strong core. Energizes and increases stamina.
*Precise instruction for each client improves results (without the cost of a personal trainer).
*Motivating group environment builds connections and community, both important in making exercise a regular part of life.
*Efficient 60-minute total body workout with childcare makes it easy to fit into a busy schedule.
And in my opinion, most importantly: Connects mind, body and breath and relieves stress.
Yes, yes and YES! One June 1, I will embark on Barre3’s June Challenge, which consists of attending 20 classes in 30 days (that’s 5 classes per week). At the end of the challenge, not only will participants win a rockin’ bod, but all participants who complete the challenge are entered into a drawing to win a prize package worth over $1000. I will blog weekly about my goals, challenges, accomplishments and progress both physically and mentally and I would LOVE your input and support to keep me on track.
If you are interested in signing up for Barre3’s June challenge, there is still time. Barre3 is offering a one-month unlimited classes package just in time for the June challenge. Sign up soon by emailing email@example.com, the challenge begins June 1.
