Cardio Barre

I would like to take a minute to give a shout out to my new obsession Cardio Barre. It's a high energy/no impact, ballet/exercise class that combines barre work and light weights. It's building a dancers body with no dance experience and building long lean muscles and burning fat.
I know what your thinking. (Yeah Right!) And do I get to wear a tutu? At least that's what I was thinking. Well I'm here to tell you it works! It really really works. I have tried everything.
With skinny fat genetics, and by that I mean , I am skinny looking in clothes but under it all feels like a hot mess. I was ready to challenge my body and see just what it could do. Plus the promise of the ass of the girl on the DVD was pretty motivating also.
My excuse of ," I just had a baby" had about 2 more uses left and I knew I had to do something. So there I was surrounded by dancers and some of the most spectacular bodies and ass's I have ever seen, and away we went. Plieing, rengataing, and kicking all the way to the most insane amount of sweat I have ever felt come off my body. 4 weeks later I was 5lbs lighter and pretty sure my ass could be DVD worthy.
It's a great post baby workout that really helps you get that lean body. You can see your muscles reemerging after being stolen by baby hormones and crusts of grilled cheese sandwiches. It's truly amazing and I would recommend it to anyone who wants an insanely awesome workout.
I haven't got to wear that tutu yet, but any day now!
