I was excited to see that Xtend Barre was opening a studio in Charlotte, and was even MORE excited when they offered a variety of free classes during their opening week.
I quickly signed up for a Friday morning class and then jumped onto Amazon.com to find a pair of barre worthy socks.
The instructor (Rachel) was super nice and energetic. We did a variety of arm, leg, and abdominal exercises during the fast paced 55 minute class. My only complaint was the choice in music ... think 80's club music with Madonna.
I loved being reminded of my ballet days and was thoroughly sore after class. After using running almost solely as my exercise routine, it was strange to introduce a full body work out. I definitely needed that change and am looking forward to incorporating a weekly barre class into my exercise routine.
Go check out Xtend Barre if you are in the Charlotte area ... the studio is offering 7 classes for $77 until June 15th!
