Last Sunday, the #ABBlogsquad got the chance to check out Barre Body Studio, which is a barre studio. Walking into the studio, we were greeted by our instructor Lanette who gave us each a bag with a water bottle, and passes for two free classes in the future. The studio features two different barre rooms and an unisex locker room that features lockers, private restrooms and private showers. It was a gorgeous space!
Before we knew it, it was time to get started! Lanette had us grab all of the equipment that we would need for class, which included: two sets of weights, ball, band, and a disk.
I had never tried a barre class before and being 26 weeks pregnant, I knew that I would have to modify some of the moves. Lanette was great to ensure that I knew what modifications that I could make. I was so focused on not dying during the class, that I can't remember what we all did. There was an arm, cardio, and leg section that left each of those body parts burning! You wouldn't think that using 5lb weights would be hard, but my arms were definitely feeling it.
What to know:
- you will need grip socks for the class. You can either bring your own, or rent a pair from the studio. They also sell them there.
- there are two studio locations: Ramsay at 1202 20th Avenue SE or Bow Trail at 4251 Bow Trail SW
- it's more than okay to take breaks during the class!
- A single class drop in is $25 or they offer different class passes on their website. Prices can be found here.
