Growing up I was in dance since I was five years old and started practicing yoga and pilates at age 14, so incorporating a work out like Barre3 comes very natural to me. If you’re not familiar with Barre3, it is an hour workout lead by an instructor that incorporates elements of Barre, Pilates, and Yoga. (For more information, please check out a previous blog post here.) It’s common to think that if I’m not lifting weights or running all the time, then I’m not working out. However, doing a workout like Barre3 that is low impact and doesn’t require shoes still allows you to burn a good amount of calories while strengthening and toning your muscles. This month, Barre3 is proving this very fact by empowering their clients to go B3 All In.
Barre3 Owner Karie Johnson explains the program beautifully. She says, “B3 All In is a a month-long program (which started on January 1st) that helps us reset and recommit to a healthier version of ourselves. The program includes a guided meal plan (Barre3 recipes included), grocery lists, and challenges us to take a Barre3 class at least 5 times a week all month long!”
Although we are already two-weeks into the month, it’s not too late to join! I joined last week and am so excited to commit the remainder of the month to B3 All In. I obviously won’t complete 5 workouts a week during all weeks of January. However, last week I did three workouts (Monday, Thursday, and Friday), and the next two weeks I plan on working out 6 times (Monday through Saturday.) You can even do two workouts a day if that is something you’re interested in doing. Sharing my fitness goals with TFK readers will help to hold me accountable. I will check in with you all after next week and share a recap at the end of the month. Who’s with me?! Comment below! I’d love to follow along on your journey too.
– How To Sign Up –
Signing up for the program is easy! If you’re already a Barre3 member (meaning that you pay for the monthly auto-pay) make sure you tell your instructor that you want to join the next time you workout. As a member you already receive access to Barre3 online, which includes workouts and recipes, and unlimited in-studio classes. Plus, you’ll receive a link that gives you a free e-book version of the B3 All In handbook as soon as you sign-up. There are check-in boards at each location, so you can keep track of how often you workout and on which days.
If you are not a member yet or if you use individual class packages, you can sign-up by clicking here. Plus, it is completely FREE to sign up! However, you will receive all of the information in a beautifully printed handbook, which Barre3 is selling at both of the Paradise Valley and North Scottsdale locations. It has all of the recipes, meal plans, grocery lists, journaling entries and more.
The best part about working out at Barre3 is having a friend there to work out alongside! If you don’t know anyone yet, I’m sure you’ll meet some great people as soon as you join. You can always invite a friend as well! Information for a free class for you or a friend is below.
