C2R Fitness is a new gym located on Chinden and Cloverdale in Boise. As soon as I walked in the door I noticed how inviting the environment is. I was introduced to Danny, who walked me through what a first visit would be like for any new client.
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.
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.
Fit over 50 is a gym that focuses on Functional Fitness. The activities of functional fitness mimic real life movements. Fit Over 50 helps individuals gain or maintain the freedom they want to enjoy the things they need to do, like to do, and dream to do outside of the gym.
Last week I wrote about all of the different exercise programs that I have tried over the years. Do you know though, I still have to question what does it take to be fit?
I like working out when I am finished. Motivating myself to get there in the first place is the hard part. I have designed my workout routine in a way the makes it super convenient for me to go.
