Barre Fitness... Have you tried it?

A little over a week ago, I was lucky enough to try something totally different from anything I normally would do. I was really nervous, but it ended up being a great time and a great workout. For anyone who lives in St. Pete, you have got to try Above the Bar Fitness at 3326 MLK St. N. 
                                                                          

My friend, Raffi, has been doing this class for a month. She has done it almost every single day. She looks amazing!!! I knew I needed to see what this was all about. She set up a class for just us bloggers! We had a blast!
The biggest thing that surprised me was that we didn't dance. No ballet! We used that bar for some serious strength work! 


My legs felt it the next day for sure! It was a whole lot of fun! 




I got to meet some amazing bloggers while I was there! I have been in contact with all of them through our Tampa Bay Lady Bloggers facebook page and twitter, but it was so fun to know that they are actually real and not Manti te'o.

  3. That sounds interesting and even fun! I wonder if there's a place in Orlando like that. I would have never thought that kind of workout wasn't dancing! :)

    I'm glad you had fun Mindy. It's been a very physical month for me fitting in 24 barre classes, but my arms and waist are thanking me with results :)

  6. You look fantastic, Mindy! I really, really want to try Barre but there aren't any around me. So I'll just live vicariously through all my blogger friends that get to go. :)

  7. 1 I am so jealous and want to be a TBLB. You all do so much fun stuff. There is none of that here.
    2. I go to barre every Sunday. Love it! It is my active recovery day during marathon training. I wish I could go more, but it is kind of pricey.
