This month, I am getting back into shape. I have become so out of shape over the past several months. I need to get back to eating clean. I feel better, I have more energy, and I am more motivated to exercise. Alas, I have not done any of that in a while. Between vacation and other craziness, it has been difficult to get back to a healthy way of life. That is why I was completely excited to start at The Dailey Method. The Dailey Method is an one-hour full body workout combines ballet barre work, core conditioning, stretching, and orthopedic exercises. Let me tell you, while it is not a high impact workout at all, I have got my butt kicked.
Over the past two years, I have struggled with getting back to my fitness level because I cannot perform the same way I could before. I have gained weight. I have lost fitness. I have been injured. This workout is giving me the strengthening, toning, and stretching I need. This program is like nothing I have ever done. Everyone works at their own level. The instructor was very helpful in making sure my form was right. I had not realized how tight my hamstrings, back, hips, legs, and practically every other part of my body has become.
This is only the first week of taking classes, but I am committed to 20 exercise classes in the month of September. That is roughly 5 classes a week. I am taking classes with a few of my blogging friends and the accountability is really helping me out. Tonight, I was so motivated and felt so good, I cannot wait to go back tomorrow!
It you are local and would like to join me this month in this challenge (PLEASE join me! I need some major accountability), there is a New Client Special – $8 For One Week (Local residents only. Available at the studio.)
Take an early class
Stop making excuses and do it
Spend 30 minutes on the treadmill
Attempt to clean this crazy, dirty house. Le sigh.
I am going to get fit again because I am happier when I am. I am healthier. I miss running—a lot.
Disclaimer: I am reviewing The Dailey Method in the month of September. In exchange for my time and efforts in attending classes and reporting my opinion within this blog, The Dailey Method has provided me with one complimentary month to try their classes and services. Even though I receive these benefits, I always give an opinion that is 100% mine.
