In the world of exercise, most of us pick one form & stick with it. It becomes easy so we continue & then wonder why we don’t see results. The human body is an amazing machine. It can adapt to the most incredible circumstances, allowing us to survive unbelievable times. It also allows us to stop seeing results. We need to continue to evolve & be creative. 20 push-ups may leave you sore for a week initially but eventually, with practice, will feel like a cake walk. I have had the blessing in my life of being able to teach so many different formats that I am able to cross train, I love to swim and run and bike so my cardio changes with my mood. Yoga is always my go to favorite. I am naturally flexible & I love how much it challenges me & slows my regularly anxious mind. This past weekend I learned a different form of the barre method called Pure Barre. After 4 days of intense training and countless classes, I already see results. I’m very excited to teach this amazing method. It incorporates barre & Pilates in tiny movements, bringing your muscles to shake and fatigue like you wouldn’t believe possible. No matter what your chosen form of exercise is, this method will challenge you. It works you muscles to lift, tone and burn. It is the perfect compliment to any existing workout routine. And if you haven’t found a form of exercise you love yet, I highly recommend finding a studio in your area. It will be fast, you will be lost at first, and every class you go to will bring you more results, purely because your control will intensify & your understanding of the work will come together. It is low impact, and especially helpful for post-pregnancy bodies. It reminded me how far I have to go. It helped me realize how much I cheat myself my skipping things that are hard or when I let myself quit. Challenge yourself to try something new this week. Find muscles you didn’t know were there. It’s good for your muscles, joints, and your brain. They all need the challenge. Be open to change, be ready to hate whatever you choose while you’re doing it. But maybe, just maybe, you’ll love how you feel when you’re finished.
