I reached my 200th PB class a few days ago! I am still just as obsessed as when I started. I feel so guilty for missing class. I still get sore. I still shake. I still feel very accomplished after class.
Pure Barre Dayton (my home studio) choose my Mom and I as their February Pure Barre Champions. We are up on the bathroom wall with a few of our thoughts!
To keep things interesting the studio’s change up the warm-up/arm exercises every 3 months or so. Once I finally get good at the last warm-up they go and change it! I am still using 3lb weights but boy is it tough! If you are new I really recommend to start using 2lbs. Big difference in that one pound! The studio recently got 5lbs weights in and I am staying far away, for now.
Thigh exercises are getting tougher always. I think thighs will always be my hardest. My legs just hurt!!
We have also started using what we (clients) call “torture bands”. Remember double tube? Well they are even worse than that. They correct term of “Velcro bands” does not do it any justice.
(I had to search high and low for this picture. They must want to keep the torture a surprise). So we (can) use these horrible things for everything but warm-up and arm exercises. Even though when using these in thighs, seat and abs your arms are working HARD!
I have noticed the most change in my seat (butt). It is more lifted and sculpted. My abs have really started to get stronger. I just need to stop eating for my 6 pack to appear! 🙂
If you have any questions about Pure Barre please ask me! I would be happy to answer any questions, etc. I truly believe in it and think any woman can do it.

We have officially started using the dreaded double tube in class.
It looks like this;
And we do new things like this;
It is KILLER!
It adds so much more resistance than before. Plus now the instructor knows if we are cheating because you can see the slack in the tube.

Have a good Thursday!
Mom and I were the featured Mother/Daughter duo at Pure Barre yesterday. They will feature a Mother/Daughter for all of this week in honor of Mothers Day next Sunday!
From Pure Barre Dayton’s Facebook Page:
All week we are celebrating our Mothers by featuring a mother/daughter duo who come to lift.tone.burn together.
Meet Alex and Diane Tobey. They have been coming to Pure Barre Dayton since January. They take a few classes together a week and would take more together if their busy schedules allowed. They both love the way class makes them feel strong and energized. Pure Barre has become such a part of their lives that when they are in the same room with a lot of people, they just look at each other and say “tuck, and tuck”!
Thank you Diane and Alex for all of the positive energy you bring to the studio daily!
My tank/pants are from Lulu Lemon. Love Lulu’s but my bank account does not!
Thanks Pure Barre!
