Why I am Still in LOVE with PureBarre

It has been about 16 months since I first started taking Pure Barre;350 classes later, somehow I am in still in love with it. I had to stop and think what about Pure Barre really keeps me interested and motivated enough to get up every morning and attend. Here is what I came up with:

  • The confidence and pure happiness you have after making it through all three thigh sprints (shaking so much it is hard to balance).
  • This workout is just as straining mentally as it is physically. Once you realize that the burn and shake won’t physically stop you; you learn how to push through each challenge in a different way.
  • The 60 minutes ALWAYS seem to fly by every time and each class is completely different; I never feel bored or unmotivated.

  • I love that the class is gentle on your body and is the perfect complement to my other cardio activities. PureBarre really tones you and the results are awesome. The strength I have gained through PureBarre only makes it easier when I go for a run or attend a spin class.
  • PureBarre never gets easier and it becomes a total addiction. As you take more classes, you learn how to perfect the technique, and as you perfect the technique, the ways you discover to push yourself further are incredible.
  • The Instructors are dedicated and motivating. They are truly an amazing support system in the studio as well as outside of the studio. As you create deeper connections with them, they learn your limits and begin to push you (sometimes physically push you) to pass them. This only motivates me more and keeps “raising the barre” higher!

  • I love that PureBarre forces you mentally shut out everything going on in your life for the 60 minutes. You have to be so focused on your technique and breathing, so it forces you to let go of all your stresses. There is an incredible mind-body connection that occurs and makes me feel much more at ease and energized for the day after class.

The Best Supplement: Vitamin L

Ever heard of Vitamin L? Probably not, but you should be getting a daily dose of it.

Vitamin L stands for Vitamin “Love.” Sound corny? It really isn’t. Love doesn’t refer just to relationships with your significant others and spouses it represents so much more than that. There are lots of types of love and ways to feel love. Serious health studies show that a lack in Vitamin L leads to deficiencies in your overall health and well-being. A lack of love is what can and most of the time lead you to make those unhealthy choices.

Here are a few ways to get your daily does of vitamin L:

  • Self-love (Most Important) = loving yourself unconditionally! Rid yourself from any negative comments about your physical or emotional state. Embrace the positives and focus your energy around the good in your life.
  • Love for Family & Friends = reach out to your family and friends and let them know how much you mean to them…more often! Set up some quality time with a family or friend you haven’t seen in a while.
  • Love in a Relationship = slow down and spend a night with your significant other that has no distractions. Go out to eat without your cell phones or stay in and turn of the TV. Plan a date that is fun for both of you and allows you to unwind from your stressful week.
  • Feeling of Love = you get a feeling of love when you do things you love. Make your favorite food, go take your favorite yoga class to unwind, take a long walk in the sunshine, or simply take a nap. All these things tie back to self-love and self-care which make you feel more energized and happy.

Vitamin L is the easiest (and cheapest) supplement you can take each day. Make a point to do something you love every day; maybe even write it down or take a picture. Sometimes you are so busy you really forget to do something so little but SO valuable.
