“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.” – Albert Einstein
One year ago I was preparing for the my biggest move ever. My family and I were packing, garage-saling, and saying goodbye to our friends. We were about to embark on a move from Southern California to Boise, Idaho. While my husband and I are from Michigan originally, my kids are native Californians and definitely reluctant to leave all they knew.
On Day 9 I had to squeeze in 2 workouts. I was a little better at planning these. In the morning I headed to Downtown Boise for Upcycle and then in the afternoon I was back in Boise for Hollywood Market Yoga. I purposely left yoga for Day 9 and for Day 10 I only visited Stretch Lab. I though those two were perfect for a wind down to the week.
Day 8 was Friday and I still had a few workouts to get in. I was still very sore from Pure Barre the day before and just tired from working out everyday for 7 days in a row (not my norm). I powered through and went to F45 and I Love Kickboxing on the same day! I felt so great after but it was a killer workout day.
Barre uses a ballet barre for many of the exercises and is a full body workout. Like all the other fitness places I have visited for Boise Fitness Week, it was a group class. This class challenged me more than any other I did throughout the week. I was incredibly sore for a few days after taking this class. The moves were very precise and numerous in their repetition. Lindsay was the instructor and she took very seriously correcting form and gave a ton of individual instruction. It was the true personal training in a group setting that is often quoted as the benefit of boutique fitness. When we were told we were going to burn out the left side, there was no ‘maybe’ in that statement.
I’d love for you to follow my journey of healthy living and visiting as many gyms as I can squeeze in. I visited the Barre 3 Location in Eagle.
Going to Cycle Bar was my first experience with a cycle class. I really wasn’t sure what I was doing for most of the class. My first impression of this studio was how welcoming they were.
I have taken the last week off from writing because of a hectic work schedule. I will be catching up this week with a number of posts from my workouts during Boise Fitness Week.
There were 3 business that were not workouts but do promote good health that participated in Boise Fitness Week.
