Testimonial Tuesday! Meet Chelsea and read her inspiring story.
My real fitness journey started several years ago during grad school with a shift towards cleaner eating, lots of walking, & a gym membership. Before then, I struggled with sticking to the whole picture of health, I experienced lots of ups & downs. But at that point, I understood that in order to see & feel the changes, I had to commit to a 'healthy' lifestyle. This meant being consistent and disciplined.
But for me, it quickly became much easier once I noticed how amazing I felt, physically & mentally, when I treated my body the right way. This kept me going. I learned that small changes over time add up to big ones, & when I moved back to PGH from CA, I was down 30 pounds.
However, it was a challenge to maintain that lifestyle for myself after moving; I got another gym membership, started doing a HIIT program, & kept eating fairly well, but a full-time desk job made it hard to be active. That sapped my energy even more.
Then, I heard about Endure Barre opening near my community. I had never taken a fitness class before, but grew up doing ballet. I knew I had to give it a try. I was immediately hooked after my very first session!
I love how you really endure the burn every time, no matter how many classes you've taken. I love the high-energy cardio mixed with classic barre movements, the unique challenge of TRX barre, & how each instructor has their own kind of choreographic style that they bring to the table. Everyone is friendly, & the instructors are incredibly motivating.
Since I started, I'm down another 10 pounds. I typically do 5 classes per week, which feels easy to commit to because it makes me feel so great. This community is exactly what I needed, it's just what I was missing. I always leave feeling more energized than when I came in, & I'm happier & more productive for it. I look forward to every single session & the sense of empowerment I leave with. Thank You Endure Barre!
We love you Chelsea 🖤💛 #enduretheburn #barre #trx #pilates #community #fittsburgh #pittsburgh #believeinthepowerofyou
