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.

This week I visited Fit Over 50 in Eagle, Idaho, a gym owned by Geoff Edwards that focuses on Functional Fitness. Contrary to the name of the gym, members do not have to be over 50.
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 have done so many workout programs over the years. It is not because they don’t work that I have done so many, it is because they do. I want to share what I have learned and what I loved the most.
