Fit, Fab and Free of Stress this 2011!

My work and basically my life is so hectic these past few days. Sometimes, I barely have the time to jog again or go to a gym. But when Belle De Jour Power Planner invited 15 girls to sign up for their first Passion Series this 2011 for a Barre3 Class, I didn't hesitate to join this eventful Saturday afternoon.

The Barre3 Studio

For those who are new to Barre3, it is a workout that originated in Portland, Oregon which combines the grace of the Ballet Barre, with a wisdom of Yoga and the strength of Pilates. According to their website, "Barre3 classes are set to an upbeat soundtrack and follow a vigorous pace moving through a sequence of postures designed to shape and lift the entire body". And Philippines is the third country where Barre3 was introduced. It is a 60-minute workout that tones your body and increases your posture. Our instructor, Ms. Faye, told us that Barre3 isn't really designed for weight loss, but instead, it provides "inch-loss"and results doesn't come out of your weighing scale, but loosening of your clothes.

True enough, Barre3 relieves stress. After the tiring workout and all the stretched muscles, my body was a sore, but it was definitely worth it. Plus the Barre3 tools really helped release the tension I was having the whole week. It wasn't Black Swan-esque but I felt light and tall after the workout. Thanks Belle De Jour Powerplanner for organizing this exciting event. And also thanks to L'oreal, Garnier and Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf for our goodies!

They have four studios here in the Philippines at The Fort, Alabang, Rockwell and Eastwood. You can check out their schedules at their website by visiting
