I'm Sorry Bum Cheeks

So remember how I told you all that I was going to try a Barre class this past weekend, and tell you all about it.
Well today's the day. 
I took the class Sunday morning, and I still am not walking straight. 
The class I took was called Booty Barre® at Strength and Balance Studio in Nashua. 
The space the class was in was amazing. The natural light was unbeatable and it was decorated in a very uplifting way. 

I saw all this pink and thought
"Aw this is going to be cute!"

I was wrong. 

The description for this class was a combination of dance, pilates and yoga. I love all these so I was super excited. 
My friend over at JustJacq has been taking Barre classes for awhile so it peaked my interest. 
Strength and Balance Studio is the only Barre studio in NH and it was worth the drive. 
We started with a warm up, with our amazingly fit instructor Becki

She explained that she would show the moves with a few different levels, including a challenge level, 
which I did not even attempt. 
The class was not entirely at the bar which I originally thought.
We did some cardio bursts, and light weight lifting as well as mat work. 
We also did some work with this little blue ball of death. 

I honestly could not tell if I was squeezing the ball or not my legs were jello. 

The hour long class flew by, and even though I could barely move I was sad to see it end. 
 While I could not walk straight for a few days after, I honestly LOVED this workout. 
It was a full body workout and I can't wait to do it again. 
It's a bit of a drive for me, but I'm willing to do it which should say a lot!
Her studio also offers many other classes such as Ballerobica® and Barre Toning which is my next adventure!
The best part... your first class is free! If you are in the area I HIGHLY recommend it!!

Tomorrow on the blog I am going to be sharing with you another amazing transformation story so make sure you check back!

Happy Thirsty Thursday!!, If I was still in college I would be drunk already, instead I'm on my second cup of coffee contemplating whether or not I should fold all that laundry...YAY ADULTHOOD!


  1. WOW does look like a killer workout! Might have to look into these!

  2. I love you!! Please let me know when you are going to make the venture I will gladly go with you....

  3. haha the barre class I go to has that little ball of death too but ours is red and spiky. You'll definitely start to notice it in your butt and after a few classes you'll have to start doing the challenge level! Glad you're loving barre!

  4. I'm going to have to see if they have one of those near me! I get so bored with workouts this looks like a good one!

  5. Becki is amazing :) she was my hip hop teacher and thst was a crazy workout

  6. I wish we had something like this around here! Maybe I'll look online. I used to be a dancer, and was even accepted into a school. Then I dropped out, got pregnant and fat!! But, they do same muscles have memory! Maybe I should get my ass back into it!

  7. Ive been a part of a couple of her classes to help her on her way in fitness as well as dance and I love her enthusiasm, willingness to show different levels and she also will direct you to proper form if a little off and at times is needed; she is a great energy to learn from both in booty barre and hip hop.

  8. You should come back at night and try our Zumba classes! Z Club transforms into a night club every night of the week too! Just a $7 drop in for any classes, P90X .. Insanity... and Zumba! We have TONS of events too. Check it out when your not a the "barre" !

  9. Sounds like an amazing workout! I'm all pregnant so some of those moves look uncomfortable but I'm sure there are some tweeks I can make. (I can't get over those awesome brick walls and windows!!)
