This week marked my one-year since starting Xtend barre. I’ve never been one to actually take a ‘workout’ class; I would rather go to the gym and work out at my own pace, on my own time. Well rewind back to 1 year ago, I finally took the chance and tried this new type of workout called barre. I was familiar with the term since I dance a little when I was a kid, and saw this as the perfect opportunity to dabble back into the barre aspect of ballet (which was always my favorite part). This decision to try it out was the best thing I could’ve done not only for my body, but my mind, and overall happiness.
Xtend Barre is defined as Pilates and dance amplified. It brings in elements of dance, ballet and Pilates to create an adrenaline-fueled workout that strengthens, lengthens and chisels the body. Most people think you need to have a dance background or be the best at coordination. You don’t, as long as you are comfortable with moving your body and follow along the best you can, that itself is a workout! Xtend barre doesn’t focus on just one aspect of the body; it gives you an all around body workout, head to toe, which is what I love best.
Xtend barre by the sea is my place to keep my body in shape and I have fun at the same time! I am there almost every day to get a good workout on and release any stress or tension I had from that day. The instructors are ALL so nice, helpful, and most importantly encouraging. I’ve met so many wonderful ladies, all of whom have made my workouts much more fun. Don’t get me wrong, Xtend Barre is a hard workout, challenges my mind and body still after 1 year. My body has definitely changed, becoming stronger, leaner and toned. If you’ve ever wondered about trying barre out, do it. I’m glad that I took the chance, and I ended up finding something that I love to do that is physically challenging, and so much fun all at the same time! Maybe I’ll see you at the barre soon!
