After trying weights, yoga, cardio and other workouts, I have finally found my happy place at Barre3! I was introduced to barre3 from my teacher friend last year during my first year of teaching. I remember feeling exhausted and telling myself I am too tired or drained to go workout after work. But once I started coming to Barre3 classes, my energy was restored. I leave these classes sweaty, confident and energized. I realized that I love the group class setting where I am pushed and motivated by the women around me. Not to mention, they are always playing the best playlists to keep you moving. Read on down for more about barre3 and why it’s my favorite happy hour.
The class is 60 minutes, total body. It starts with opening breaths and a warm up. After that, you focus only on legs(squats on squats y’all). Then, you grab your weights(1s 2s or 3lbs trust me it ain’t easy) for combo work(arms and legs) which is continuous movement for 10-15 minutes. This part of class is when you get that endorphin rush to push you through the rest of class. This also the part of class where you think you might collapse at any moment. After combo work, you finish out the class with glute work and abs. To finish off, you stretch out all of those hard worked muscles and take closing breaths. It is the perfect combo of pilates, barre and yoga and that’s what makes it barre3! It is also great for pregnancy, back issues and more!
The owners of barre3 Coppell, Ilene and Jaimie are the sweetest sister duo that push you beyond your limits, while making it fun and intentional. They so kindly gifted me this workout look with the comfiest berry colored tank and grey Barre leggings. They have THE best selection of workout tanks, tops and pants that are perfect for class. Did I mention you get to workout barefoot?! Yes, please!
