We’ve all heard the saying, “When you look good, you feel good!” The same rings true for fitness. For Day 14 of Best Self Atlanta Magazine’s 30 Days of Fitness blog series, I visited Pink Barre Sandy Springs. Their 60-minute barre class required me to bring nothing more than myself and a pair of socks if I pleased.

So what exactly is “barre” you may ask? Barre is a ballet-inspired workout whose moves are very methodical yet intense all at the same time. You take the time to focus on tucking your tummy, protecting your spine and controlling each movement as well as your breathing.

Maureen Chatelain was my class instructor and made sure that each movement I completed was done with the correct posture. During the workout, my muscles and abs were burning. The hardest part of this workout was working my hamstrings. I am usually never able to get a really good targeted hamstring workout, but this did the trick! The most enjoyable part was our stretching and breathing exercise toward the end. Being able to close my eyes and focus on what I had just completed felt amazing. After, I felt refreshed, tight and ready for the rest of the day.

Overall, every barre studio is different. If you’ve tried a barre class but haven’t visited Pink Barre Sandy Springs, you are missing out!
