That’s me on the far right at a Charleston Blog Society event that was held at Barre Evolution a month or so ago!

I started going to classes at Barre Evolution this fall and absolutely fell in love. I bought a month unlimited to start off and even though I didn’t go every day, I felt tremendous results after just that first month. I didn’t notice anything on the scale because the numbers were going up from being pregnant, but I felt more toned overall and had a great sense of clarity that I have missed since a time that I was a regular at yoga. I also felt very energized—something I’m lacking right now. I think what I like best about barre is that it’s super intense and you can feel sore muscles you didn’t know you had the next day, but it’s not a workout that is going to leave you sweating major bullets since it’s fairly low impact. But HARD, gosh it’s hard. About the time my starter pack ended, my mom’s surgery took place and I was with her during most free time that I had… and then Thanksgiving …and then our move …and then Christmas. So needless to say, I have only been once during all that time. And let’s just say that between all of the food and lack of exercise, my body is missing barre like no other!! Now that we’ve moved and I can now walk to the barre studio, I guess I don’t have much excuse to not go back, huh?

I noticed that GAP has introduced a barre collection and I thought I would share. I love their fitness line. Of course, most of this is not maternity friendly for me, but I hope it will stick around so that I can scoop some pieces up after Baby Boy arrives. Just a few more months!

Here are my favorites from the collection. A lot of it is currently marked down and plus, you can save 35% off your entire purchase with code CHEER.

!function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? ‘http’ : ‘https’;if(!d.getElementById(id)) {e = d.createElement(s); = id;e.src = p + ‘://’ + ‘’ + ‘/js/lookbook.js’;d.body.appendChild(e);}if(typeof(window.__lookbook) === ‘object’) if(d.readyState === ‘complete’) {window.__lookbook.init();}}(document, ‘script’, ‘lookbook-script’);

    I've never tried barre workouts but as a previous dancer, I feel like it's only right that I give it a shot sometime! And I love that Gap collection!
