i was completely delighted when i went to bar this weekend to be presented with the ELITE lavender socks because i have attended 500+ bar classes. (you cannot buy these socks, you can only earn them!) i LOVE to get prizes and it happens so rarely that i get really excited. i also got to sign my name on a big poster along with the other “elites” … i tried to write really BIG and legibly so my fellow exercisers will know what i have accomplished! i have been going to bar for almost the whole time we’ve lived in boulder (so if i did the math correctly, it’s not that impressive as i seem to only average about 1.3 classes a week.) but considering that i don’t really like to exercise at all and i have been taking bar consistently (if infrequently) for SEVEN years in a row (which is much more than i have done any other physical activity besides chasing after my children… i’ve gone running four times, spin class once - AWFUL! pilates once, orange theory never) it is amazing and a true testament to the lovely, hilarious teachers. boulder’s bar method crew keep it funny and light, while pushing all of us (not just the elites, like me) to obtain the coveted high rise peach bum. it’s true that i think most of the teachers are on to my strategies for making things easier and i seem to be getting more corrections than ever, but i adore them in spite of the extra attention to my cheats. and perhaps it won’t take me quite as long to complete the next 500 classes… THANK YOU ladies of boulder bar.
