Town Barre Transformation: Losing 30 lbs, gaining so much more
How Janice lost 30 lbs, in her own words…
It all started about a year ago when I saw a photo in a fitness magazine that said, “Why Not You? What’s next is up to you, it’s your move.”I decided right then to become a healthier version of myself.
When I first tried barre, the moves felt really awkward. I never thought I was going to be able to do some of the positions, like chair pose. I gave up many times despite paying attention to Michelle’s cues and modifications. The day after every class I was so sore!
After two months of sporadic classes, I challenged myself to attend class at least three times a week. It was then that I started to become more comfortable in the positions and throughout class. My muscles began getting used to the routine of working out and I was able to start pushing myself harder each class.
I just finished Town Barre’s Summer Slim Down Challenge. Over the last six months I have gone from a size 14 to a size 8. I bought myself a bleeping bikini this summer! (Something I never thought I’d wear again!) Since starting at Town Barre, I have lost 30 pounds.
This transformation has made me feel so good inside and out. Finally instead of “Why not you?” – it is me! I have had poor posture for many, many years and since taking barre classes I have seen a noticeable improvement in my posture, as well as my weight and muscle tone. Finding my strength and transforming my body has made me feel more confident about my age and aging.
I’m so glad I committed to taking better care of myself. Working out regularly definitely changes your mindset for the better. I’m excited to see where this new healthy lifestyle takes me.
I’m so proud of Janice and all of her hard work. She has been so committed to coming three times a week – through holidays, snow storms and more! Each week her form is better, she holds exercises for longer and is mentally and physically stronger! Cheers to Janice!
