I had my first barre workout experience courtesy of Bar Method Nashville. Bar Method is a national chain and I have worked with their Minneapolis and Nashville locations. I went with my group the Blogger Xchange. This was one of our first xclusive xperiences for our blogger group. The staff at Bar Method was a fun and professional group that took their time to show us how to properly and safely due a barre workout. They offer a variety of classes for different levels. We took the 45 minute “Express” class.
The Express class had me working out muscles I didn’t know existed. Beyond the bar, we used weights and mats. This helped open up those muscles I didn’t know I had. The signature Bar Method uses your own body weight, the ballet barre and a few props to create a transformative workout that results in long, lean sculpted muscles. Not only does it reshape your entire body, but it allows you to channel your inner strength and leave class feeling strong, confident and poised. All of the below photos were captured by Sarah Marie Photography. She and her boyfriend did such a great job.
I highly recommend you all try this workout. Bar Method Nashville is located at 4301 Harding Pike. Some of the highlights include complimentary childcare, parking, towels, lockers and a beauty bar. I think the Beauty Bar was one of my fave parts. It makes working out before work alot easier.
No workout is complete without Defiance Fuel. After our workout, we re-hydrated with my fave water and Fix Juice Co. Both are headquartered in Nashville, TN. You cannot pick up Defiance Fuel in grocery stores, it’s offered exclusively through partner gyms, yoga studios, sports teams, professional athletes, therapy centers and specialty sporting goods stores. Bar Method Nashville is one of their exclusive partners. Defiance Fuel has been shown to increase cellular hydration, increase cell charge for more energy and endurance and formulated with perfect pH for athletes. I use it after all of my workouts.
I also recommend Fix Juice Co. This is coming from someone that doesn’t really like organic products. I tend to think they aren’t as flavorful. That certainly was not the case with Fix Juice Co. They’re juices are delicious which is why myself and everyone else walked away with 2. Have you tried barre before? How did you like it? I have a month pass and will certainly be going back to use it.
