Dear all, I hope you are all well and staying safe during these hard times.
The aim of this blog post is to explain how my fitness routine has evolved in hope it can inspire you all to stay fit and strong.
By now, I am sure you all know a bit about my fitness journey. As you may have read in older posts, I started with TA, back in 2009, long time ago. However, my journey has continued evolving.
Nowadays, I still enjoy doing the TA method, but I have also found ways to spark joy by mixing up different fitness routines. If you wonder why, I will explain: It all started a while ago, when my wrists started to complain, so I had no other choice than to listen to my body, pause and find other ways of exercising without being on all-fours 7 days a week. I started researching and discovering other workouts, more ballet/barre based. Fitness routines that would allow me to stand up and still exercise. Through time I have tried tons of great workouts and platforms and I will name a few for you:
- Xtend Barre- This was my first barre class. Pretty cool. She has lots of energy and cool standing up moves. It’s been a while since I haven’t checked back on her again.
- Obe fitness– This platform is great. It offers many different type of workouts, like HIT, Barre, Yoga, Bounce with a trampoline, and so on. Lots of fun and many different options too. Shorter 10 minute classes and level-up 45 min classes for those in need of extra burn. (GOGLOOW30 for discount when signing up) @obefitness
- Dance Body- This workout is pretty fun too. I enjoy their standing up moves. Lots of fun and they burn like hell. @dancebody
- The Class- WOW! This workout is a complete different workout to anything else out there.Taryn Toomey is the founder, and she is exceptional. Her vibe is addictive and her music is unbeatable. What makes her workout so unique is that it feels like a deep emotional exorcism, you will cry, laugh, breathe, dance, shout and overall, feel amazing. I enjoyed it very much. @theclass
- Body Barre- These Mexican women, are a box of dynamite. Full of energy, good vibes and blast burning moves. I’ve only done their classes twice, but I am already hooked to them. Jaqueline (the founder) is a ballerina, she explained to me that she had always wanted to create something related to barre but different to what already existed. So she created bodybarre, a method that embraces barre with cardio. A killer class!! @body.barre
If you are wondering, how I combine them all. This is how I do it:
-TA 4 to 5 times a week approximately (depends very much on the class and my wrists)
-Trampoline once a week (love the cardio with obefitness, so much fun)
-Barre, twice a week (Once a week with obefitness and another with bodybarre)
Hope this information inspires you too. There is no ONE-workout fits all. Find your own formula, love it and live on repeat, especially during this quarantine.
