FABULOUS AT FIFTY AS A BARRE JUNKIE
46 short years ago I started my first year of dance. My parents thought they were signing me up for just "something to do" but I developed a love of being active and fit. I was a petite little girl and remained that way for many years. I enjoyed dancing, cheering, running, swimming, walking and such. The summer before my 9th grade year I blossomed into a curvy fit body (my dad was full of anxiety about this body I might add). By the time my 10th grade year came around, I would teeter totter the scale with 8 lbs going over my desired weight and then back down. It was like a rollar coaster and I was very conscious of my new body size. I'm only 5'2. As the years have gone by, I would always teeter totter with the extra 8-10 pounds. Sometime loosing them and feeling comfortable and then putting them back on but I continued to dance and be active. When I turned 32 I gave up the art of dance. But I continued to walk, run, and occasionally work out to DVD's at home or the local YMCA and kept a decent fit body. At age 42 I had a hysterectomy. My metabolism took a major plunge and my body slowly added 18 lbs of weight. As the years went by I seemed to experience the skin loosing some tone as well. I was at the point that no matter how hard I tried to eat right and work out or walk it wasn't enough. My primary care physician told me I would have to work out twice as hard to loose the unwanted 18 lbs. So in 2015, two of my sons began to plan weddings for 2016 and I knew right then I had to do something to look like my heart desires. I heard about Body Sculpt Barre in January 2015. Just being a former dancer, the name of the business caught my eye. I knew that the best fit body I ever had was during my dancing days. In February 2015 I purchased the DVD to work out at home. With my work schedule at that time I couldn't contribute the time or $ to go to classes. The first time I watched that DVD I loved BSB! It seemed to be just what I was looking for! As a self motivator, I started doing the Barre DVD, but after a few weeks I was not doing it enough to make a huge impact on my grandma developing physique. In September 2015 I decided that if I was going to look the way my mind wanted me to for the my sons weddings, I needed to be in regular classes at BSB. On September 11, 2015, I opened one of the best doors of my life! I attended my first Body Sculpt class. I was hooked! I couldn't wait until the next class, the next, and the next. About every 6 weeks I could see great changes to my body shape. I began to feel toned and healthy. I began to eat better and drink water all day which helped my complexion and gave me more energy. The instructors are qualified beyond measure. They explain what move targets which part of the body, train you to breath correctly, and correct when you are incorrect. They offer a guidance on eating clean and eating healthy to successfully loose inches. It is now almost 10 months since I started Barre regularly. I feel the best I have felt in many years. My measurements are what they were when I was in my 20's and I am toned all over. I rest well at night and have a lot of energy. With all the festivities we had this year, I also turned 50! I am Fabulous at Fifty and I can't wait for that next Barre class (which is in an hour for me)! I am officially a Barre Junkie or call me what you want, there are a few other names, Barre Beauty, Barre Babe, Barre Bum..... All I know is that these Barretenders (our instructors) are awesome and make BSB what it is! Come to the BEST Barre in town (Body Sculpt Barre) and give it a try, you will love the new you!
