After lots of shaking, early mornings, and pushing myself to my limit, I finally took my 100th class at my local Pure Barre studio! And what's even better than that? I was lucky enough to take it alongside my regular clients and two of my amazing friends and squad sisters <3. That definitely made it a memory I won't ever forget!
Realistically, I should've joined the 100 club some time ago! But at times, life made it a little more difficult than need be. For one, I started teaching barre classes which meant I could no longer workout at the times I am now teaching. Two: barre is not my only method of working out so often after hard workouts with some of my other commitments, I was way too tired to get up and take barre that same day or the next. Three: when you take classes at other barre studios, they don't count towards your total number of home studio classes (and I do take class at other studios). And four: four months in the year, I live in a completely different state.
Great-now that my excuses are out there, let me explain why I'm not going to let any of them get in my way anymore. This is a "no excuses" kind of year for me. I love taking barre classes so I will always do what I can to get a few in a week, regardless of my schedule, my outside workouts, my location, etc. One of my favorite things about barre is the group of people around you supporting you to always perform your best and to keep with it. I try to instill that quality in my barre students and now I'd like to instill that in myself. Yes...there will be times when I'll be super tired- likely before/after dance practices and team workouts. But, NO EXCUSES. I'm going to keep doing what I love regardless :) Catch ya at 250!
