Each month we talk with one of our students so they can share their experience with others. This month we’re chatting with Shari.
What do you love about Haute Barre?
Absolutely everything! The studio has such a welcoming atmosphere and great energy. The instructors are all amazing, inspiring and challenging in their own unique way. The total body workout you get in each class is fun and super addicting!
What’s the biggest change you’ve noticed?
I have gained so much strength, muscle tone and confidence. I feel so much better mentally and physically. I’ve also lost 22 lbs since January!
What part of class do you love to hate?
There are a few but chair pose is always the one that gets me. I have definitely noticed improvement since my first class and always try to push myself a little more each time. When I’m in the pose I try to remember that shaking is good and the burn will go away! I do my best to smile and keep pushing through!
What advice would you give to someone coming to Haute Barre for the first time?
To stick with it and know that each class will be challenging in a different way. It won’t get easier because you will learn to push harder in each and every class. It’s your workout and you can modify or intensify where you need to.
What motivates you to come to class?
Each class is different so it’s fun not knowing what pose will be next or what the cardio sequences will be. The instructors are encouraging and get to know you more in each class. It’s never boring and I feel so energized when I’m done! I never thought anything could motivate me to get up at 4:30am but I was hooked the first morning I came to Haute Barre!
