Ok, get over the fact I don’t look so hot.  My early morning workout routine does not include make up.  Nor should it. 

Moving on to Physique 57.  Think Lotte Berk but harder.  Still not sure what I’m talking about?  How about this: using a barre, strap, ball, and mat, performing exaggerated ballet movements that target the little bitty muscles that never seem to get the attention they deserve to strengthen and lengthen your body for a leaner look. Here’s the breakdown of the 57 minutes of total body toning: 10 minutes of weight lifting for your upper body, what seems like forever of quad and butt using the ballet barre, 10 minutes of ab work, throw in about 50 pushups and you’ve got a workout.  No cardio, but I was sweating.

I wanted to take pictures in the room of me doing one of their exaggerated pelvic tilt plies (it’s pretty hilarious…and painful), but their schedule is packed back to back with classes.  This is great for someone like me who prefers to work out in the middle of the day.  Most gyms use corporate structure to schedule their group fitness (so 1990’s).

I know what you’re thinking, this is one of those girly classes that doesn’t show any results, but allows women to declare they are healthy and exercise.  WRONG.  This shit hurts and works!  Use it once a week to supplement your fitness regimen and you’ll be ripped in no time.

Schedule ahead because they’re pretty popular, and the women who attend are fanatics (in a good way).
