Summer is winding down, and with as much fun as it’s been, there is one thing we’re looking forward to now that we’ve had three months of fun: Back to School! Yes, we said it!! We know we’re not alone when we begin the countdown to some sort of routine. Now don’t get us wrong, we LOVE, love, love the days of no schedule or alarms and just letting the days evolve into fun outings with our little smarties! The quality time with our families is wonderful – AMAZING! BUT, as the end of summer nears, we all start to notice the toll it’s been taking on our bodies and minds (darn you, ice cream!).
Lucky for us, Back to School means Back to the Barre – Pure Barre that is! Raise your hand if you are ready to lift, tuck, burn and let’s not forget the planks. Oh how we love/hate planks! We are SO lucky to have three amazing studios in the metro QC to take advantage of Pure Barre’s low impact, yet intense TOTAL workout brings AHHHHHHmazing benefits for the mind, body & soul.
We thought we’re round up our top 10 reasons why we’re so excited to head back to the barre. What are yours, Smarties?
Top 10 reason why we LOVE Back to School at Pure Barre
1.) The Pure Barre BACK TO SCHOOL SPECIAL: 2 months unlimited for $299
2.) A real commitment. Being able to plan and actually attend a Pure Barre class is huge once school starts back up. The lack of a consistent summer schedule is a blessing and a curse – with little or no camps, travel, and family visiting there’s not always room in the day to ourselves and our fitness. Now there’s no reason to not follow through on the commitment we’ve made to OURSELVES.
3.) A few minutes to ourselves. It’s our chance to just breathe and relax while the kids are at school for 3,4, and maybe 7 hours. We deserve it!
4.) Retail therapy. You know we work out better when we feel better in our clothes, and the Pure Barre studios have the cutest clothes.
5.) Sticking to those end-of-summer goals. Remember the beginning and middle of summer where we pretended our lives were one big vacation? Yea, now none of our clothes fit. It’s time for Pure Barre every day, am I right? Or at least 5 days a week!
6.) The buddy system. It’s definitely more fun to work out with friends, so why not invite a friend to attend a Pure Barre class with you? You could even meet for coffee/lunch after and actually have a normal conversation now that the kids are back in school. What? No interruptions from kiddos? So needed!
7.) Ditching our comfort zones. We’re making plans to try a different Pure Barre Class we may not have tried before. Pure Barre Empower, Hard Core Intensive, & more. Back to school means working on mom for a chance, right? It’s time to push ourselves!
8.) Eat better, feel better. Now that our routines are more structured, we can actually plan to eat healthier so we feel better and our workouts pay off more. We know we are what we eat, and after summer we’re not sure we enjoy being potato chips, cheeseburgers, cocktails, and ice creams cones.
9.) Skinny jean ready:. We thought this skinny jean thing was a passing trend, but we’re rolling up another year of skinny jeans, so we might as well embrace them. Pure Barre definitely helps with this. The leg and booty workout are so intense that the shaking and burning truly does create change and makes us reach for those jeans more.
10.) The super fun Pure Barre playlists: That music at Pure Barre is so good, that we often can’t wait to hear what they are going to play next! Keeps us moving, tucking, & pulsing (and it totally keeps us updated with our kids’ music choices! Thanks, Pure Barre!).
BONUS: Going to Pure Barre makes us happy!! It truly does change the day if you just walk in the door!!
