As a FITgal in the city, my girlfriends and I are constantly exploring fun, new workouts to try. So last night, I took my very first barre class at LavaBarre in Clarendon.
Being a former gymnast and an avid runner and yogi, I thought a simple dance inspired workout would be just a fun workout with the girls, but it was much, much more!
If you haven’t tried a barre class, I highly recommend it!
A combination of dance inspired moves with a bar, weights and a ball, it is by far one of the hardest workouts I have done! Not in the sense that it was strenuous but in the sense that it worked muscles that hadn’t been used in years!
And… it was a lot of fun! The instructor was so upbeat and great at keeping us motivated while instructing us through different exercises. They blast great music and all around it was a great workout and a good time!
Plus you get to wear these cute socks!
After class we walked across the street to a cute coffee and wine restaurant called Northside Social and enjoyed some mint tea and quiche!
It was a great FITgal night!
