My Barre 3 Giveaway

by Lauren on May 25, 2012

Running, teaching spin, and working with a trainer twice a week is what I do to stay physically and mentally in shape.  For as long as I've been doing these things, I realize that my body could probably use some variety from time to time.  Sure, I'll throw in a yoga class once in a blue moon, but I'm always looking for new and exciting workout routines to avoid my body and interest becoming burned out. 

When Kait from MyBarre3 contacted me to share about this newly established workout craze, I was quite intrigued.  The concept combines the essence of yoga, Pilates and ballet barre work into one.  Sounds fantastic if you ask me!  

Since I haven't tried MyBarre3 yet, I am going to let Kait do the explaining.  There is even a great opportunity for you to try it for yourself! 

Without further ado, here is Kait!

 

As a passionate educator, runner, and fitness instructor, Lauren is a girl after my own heart.  I'm Kait, and I'm a barre3 instructor in Portland, Oregon.  I get to teach, learn, and connect with amazing women everyday.  Barre3 is a combination of yoga, Pilates, and ballet barre work.  We are based out of Portland and have nearly 30 studios open.  We recently launched a complementary online workout program, www.mybarre3.com, so you can fit exercise into your hectic schedule.  Founder Sadie Lincoln designs each workout to balance and shape your body in the comfort of your home.

I started barre3 because I hated stretching and strength training, but I needed something to compliment my distance running…because running alone wasn't cutting it.  I didn't feel balanced and energized.  Long story short – I took a few classes….and I fell in love.  Barre3 totally kicked my butt and it gave me the mind body connection I was craving.  It wasn't long before I noticed major changes.  I now have more energy, stand taller, and have improved my core strength big time.  Now, almost 3 years later I'm living my passion teaching barre3 studio classes and working for Sadie Lincoln.

I think Barre 3 would be greato do on my non-running days! Unfortunately, there’s no studio near me. I’ve been wanting to try it!

Amye May 25, 2012 at 10:52 am

I love running but need to change things up some days! This would be great to try!

As a runner, I definitely need to add in something that will help with my core strength!!

Claire @ Live and Love to Eat May 25, 2012 at 11:27 am

Sounds like a fun alternative to cardio days!

Kellyo May 25, 2012 at 11:39 am

Amy May 25, 2012 at 12:27 pm

I’ve done barre classes before and I love them-they are such an intense workout! This would help me achieve my fitness goals because I gravitate toward running only, and I really need to change things up!

I just finished school and would love to try something new. During school i also worked full time and was only able to work out with at home dvds and i’m ready to switch things up and find something i’m really passionate about (like i did when i first found yoga)!

jc May 25, 2012 at 12:38 pm

I want to look more lean and fit than too muscular :)

Katie @ Talk Less, Say More May 25, 2012 at 12:40 pm

Lisa May 25, 2012 at 3:36 pm

I love spinning, HIIT, tabata and weight lifting and would love to try barre for a nice change up!

Emily May 25, 2012 at 3:37 pm

I would love to try Barre3! As a distance runner, I too get bored just stretching. This would be a great way to get a work out in and a good stretch and strength training!

This sounds like a wonderful workout! I have done Pilates to improve my core strength, but I think I like the sound of Barre3 even more.

Lauren May 25, 2012 at 7:40 pm
