Pretzels at The Bar….Method that is

I know you’ve been doing Bar classes for years now.  I could never get my head around spending a hour  doing something where I wasn’t dripping with sweat.  Cardio was my mantra for years.   I’m sorry I didn’t listen to you sooner when you told me how amazing Bar Method is.  Well amazing may not be the right word, but I can see why you were hooked.  Holy sh&T that is one tough workout.  I’ve been going once a week for the last 3 months (well that is what I’ve been trying to do).    I’m fairly certain I’m always the worst in the class.  I have zero flexibility so things like getting my leg  up on the bar pose a bit of a challenge.   That being said, I don’t care and I’m certain nobody else in the room cares either.  We are all too busy “pushing our limits” and “experiencing the shake.”  I  kid you not, at time it feels like I’m my own earthquake but they say that is “when the change really starts to happen.”  Oh and there are pretzels at the Bar but you don’t eat them.  Instead, I think they eat your fat away.

Bottom line is I get it, I understand why people hit the Bar. In fact,  I wish I could do a 30 day Bar challenge as I truly believe I would see changes in my body.

You can find me at Bar Method Brentwood @ 6:10am on Tuesdays or Thursdays.

So cheers! Take a shot at the Bar.

    The pretzels moves kill me every time. They make me realize how non-flexible I am. But, I love the result.

  2. Loved this – I can relate! I also used to be a “chronic cardio,” believer before I had my paradigm shift via Classical Pilates. I’m definitely hard to please when it comes to fitness given my Pilates background, but Bar Method has BY FAR been my favorite workout to incorporate within my own workout routines, and I even throw a few similar moves in with my Pilates clients. The attention to detail which most instructors have makes it all worth the extra shakes and burns!
