I won this, y'all! One of my favorite Pure Barre instructors, Melinda, shared with the class that she lost 29lbs through Blast. She mentioned that she was going to be featured in the AJC and we should check her out! Well, her article motivated me to step out of my comfort zone and check out what this workout was all about. So, I "liked" them on Facebook and followed them for a few weeks. Then in the beginning of January they posted this:
So I responded with this...
And then on February 1st, I saw this...
Eeeee!!! I was at work when I saw this on my phone. I may or may not have screamed out loud. I may or may not have jumped up and down. And I definitely sent a scream text to Adam. You know what I'm talking about... ALL CAPS BECAUSE I WAS SCREAMING WITH EXCITEMENT!!! I never win anything. Ever.
Today was my first class and I was SO scared. Luckily, the instructor was awesome and extremely helpful. She explained things before class and checked on me throughout class. And the girls I were next to were also very helpful. I asked too many questions and they were more than happy to help. Yay for fitness support! :)
