I was 53 years old at the end of July, 2009, I was squeezing my body, at 159 lbs., into a size 10 – I really should have been wearing a size 12. It was then I decided to take my first Bar Method class with Bev; I thought it might kill me! I was taking 2 classes a week until Bev approached me one day and asked me if I really wanted to see results; I said yes, and she told me I should start taking 3 – 4 classes a week. It was the best thing I ever did for myself.
Cut to May of 2010, 9 months later, I am now 54 and I just bought a size 6 to wear to my son’s college graduation and I weigh 135 lbs.! I am over the moon about where I am in my life right now; Bar Method has given me a confidence that I have never had. I have tried several different workout programs over the years and nothing has worked for me like this has.
I now have a new goal… to be on “The Amazing Race” with another ‘Bar Method’ lady. We want to apply to the show and run the race as two women in their 50’s who have the rest of their lives to look forward to, and I know we can do it! I have a new-found strength in my body, have found my balance and feel like I can do anything a 30-year-old can do. I met Debbie in class and we have become good friends, along with many of the other ladies. Debbie and I realized we have a lot in common, and decided we needed to do something really ‘off the charts’ to celebrate our new lease on life. I have a blast coming to class, not only to get a great workout, but to socialize with some really great people.
I look forward to the classes I attend at Bar Method and know that I will still be doing this workout when I am 90!
