My Favorite Things Linky: Gettin' Fit

Summer break...what a wonderful feeling! I'm using my Weekly 5 organizer to keep some structure in my life, reading my stack of books, and getting ready for bikini season! I recently found Pure Barre, a ballet/pilates/yoga workout- and I am hooked!

Favorite Graphic

Here's why I love it...

It's fast paced but not too intense, so someone with major asthma, like me, doesn't have to go running for her inhaler every 10 minutes.  I do sweat a lot, and get red as a tomato- fair warning if you're like me! You warm up with a little bit of cardio and stretching, then use the weights to work out your arms.  Then you do thigh work and seat work at the barre, and ab work on the mat.

I have a favorite instructor, but everyone who works there is so nice and genuinely helpful.  Plus, I've made some friends who go to the same class times as me, and it's really a community atmosphere.

Yeah.  That's a problem (a good one!)...I find myself lifting, tucking, and squeezing throughout the day.  When I was alone in my classroom cleaning it out, I blasted the music and pure barre'd myself until I was worn out.

I've been going for a month and can feel serious changes in my body- I can't wait to see what the rest of the summer will bring!

What do you do to get fit? Link up with Halle!


  1. I need to try it...I just need to get over the sticker shock price per class!

    Thanks for linking up!

  2. I definitely want to try this. It sounds right up my alley. I was actually in Haddonfield scoping out the area today. What a cute little shopping district! When do you usually go to class?

  3. I have tried out Pure Barre and few times and just cannot get into it! It could be the price or maybe just that I prefer a high-energy, fast-paced workout! I envy the fact that you love it so much! My teacher bff works at the front desk of our local PureBarre in the summer and I do go with her from time to time!

    Glad I found your cute blog!

    That's SO Second Grade!


Thanks for the comment! I really appreciate it.
