I have always loved being in shape and staying fit. I have loved working out since I was a young girl. I always joined a gym and worked out on my own. After I had my second child (Olivia), I was the heaviest I have ever been. I weighed 201 pounds when I delivered her. When I was given the all clear I joined a place where I did workouts with groups. I absolutely loved this! I not only was in shape and feeling like my old self again (Heck, I even felt better!), but I gained so many relationships that I continue to have to this day. I gained so much from that place. Unfortunately last summer the owner had told all of us that he was not going to be holding classes anymore. I never thought I would be so impacted by this news. I was so comfortable and loved this group so much that nothing I tried compared to it. I felt like I wasn’t giving it my all when I joined new places and made excuses to quit. To put it simple, I was sad and not myself.
About a month ago I decided I was going to change things. I was going to start working out again and change my lifestyle. I woke up one day and realized that I was not happy like I once was and I realized one day that my children could see I was not happy. Right then and there is when I chose to join The Barre Code. This was by far the best thing I have ever done. I go for 50 minutes as much as I can. Right when you walk in you can feel the positive vibes. There are powerful quotes all over and it is a very warm place. There are women of all sizes and ages. Everyone is welcoming and no one judges. I found my happy place!!! I dedicate 4% of my day to me and love every minute of it. I dedicate this piece to The Barre Code!
