Some regular readers of this blog may know that my usual form of exercise is running. I actually really enjoy running (many people are completely unable to understand this statement - but it's true!). With that being said, I find it really hard to get motivated for a run in freezing cold temperatures and with a snow covered ground. So hard in fact - that I barely run in the winter. Sure there are treadmills, but that gets old really quickly. I needed a new workout.
Enter the Bikram Yoga Groupon.
One of my friends texted me "Did you see the Bikram Yoga Groupon? We should totally get it and go together and we'll both sweat ourselves skinny." I still hate her a little.
Basically the class went something like this:
after very clear instructions not to leave the room under any circumstances, I left about halfway through the class (to puke). I had to return to the class to collect my belongings and leave again, absolutely mortified. The majority of the time I spent in that room was me trying not to pass out, and I barely even attempted a yoga pose. Needless to say, I still have 19/20 classes left on that Groupon that will
likely never be used.
Moving on... I needed a new workout.
Enter Barre Bee Fit (recommended by Lesley)
I attended my first Barre class this weekend and it was fabulous. The perfect combination of cardio and toning at a reasonable pace. I feel sore, a sure sign that I had a great workout. Yet, I never once felt like I was going to die, pass out, puke. I know where I'll be working out the rest of the winter - see ya later, yoga.
Keep in mind, this is completely based on my personal opinion.
I'm sure other people have had very different experiences. But here it goes -
Bikram vs. Barre Bee Fit:
Have you been to either class?
