Last weekend I felt the burn at Simply Barre in South Boston with a group of fellow bloggers! Before the barre class I grabbed an iced latte and I was just admiring how beautiful South Boston is. Southie is so easy to get to. You just hop on the red line get off at Broadway one stop away from South Station!
When I arrived at Simply Barre my instant thought was, “this place is beautiful!” I liked how the studio had a mini fitness store in the front. I love working out and shopping! Anyhoo, I was greeted by Elissa from Style-Wire, who was hosting the barre class. I hung up my coat and put my purse in one of their lockers.
Although I have lost about 30 lbs and I workout regularly I will admit I was very nervous about taking this class. I was scared I wouldn’t be able to keep up or do any of the moves but boy was I wrong!
For those of you who do not know what barre is, it is a ballet, yoga, Pilates inspired workout. It uses a ballet barre and a combination of small movements with a lot of reps.
Now… I could feel the burn during this class! The instructor was very encouraging and she came around to help me with my form which I really liked! I loved how the class incorporated hand weights, resistance bands and exercise balls. I am the weakest in my ab area but surprisingly my favorite part of the class was the ab work!
I just want to say if you are a beginner or have the same body type as me do not be afraid to try barre! I will tell you beauties the following days after my barre class I could feel it in my whole body and I loved it!
I really enjoyed my class at Simply Barre and I encourage you beauties to try them out!

After our class we were treated to a light meal from Paleo Life. Paleo Life is a yummy paleo meal plan service based in Boston. Paleo diets follow the diet of early humans so that means eating lots of meat, veggies, fruits and straying away from processed foods.
We were served honey chicken wings, zucchini, and squash. I just want to say that these chicken wings are the best chicken wings I have had in a long time. The food was so amazing! It tasted fresh, well seasoned and perfectly cooked. It was just simply on point.
