I can’t speak for most women, but I would like to think that I’m not the only one that isn’t comfortable in her own skin. After going to college and LOSING 15lbs instead of gaining, I worked hard to maintain my new shape. I spent hours at the gym, pounding away on the treadmill, always trying to push myself further. But eventually, it would get easier and I would get bored. And honestly, even after hours of working out, I still never felt comfortable in my own skin.
I started coming to Bar Method in December of last year and it was the BEST decision I’ve ever made. I was a little weary at first, and after that 1st hour, there was definitely a part of me that did NOT want to come back. My legs were shaking and it felt like my legs and glutes were on fire. Luckily, I chose to come back and I haven’t stopped. The instructors are always giving me feedback on how to correct my form and my posture and that’s just what I need.
When I step into class, it’s never about the beautiful bodies that I’m surrounded by. It’s about how I can push myself further, harder and if I can come down lower than I did in the previous class. For the first time in my life, I’m very comfortable in my own skin. My arms are toned, my legs are strong and my booty is lifted. I’m comfortable in my clothes and I’ve gained a confidence that has taken 30 years to develop, but took a year at Bar Method to bring out of me. And for that I will always be indebted to the amazing instructors at Bar Method that never let me give up on myself. Thank you.
