Walking into Barre3 I was a bit intimidated. I had done a class during Boise Fitness Week but I was not sure if it would be the same. I don’t like to do new things alone. But that’s why I am visiting new gyms and why I am writing about it. Intimidation is a huge factor for people to not try a class that they think may be fun or a great workout.
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.
