Motivation Boost

Talk about motivation! I just finished doing a Bar class with one of the founders, Burr Leonard who is visiting the new SLC studio from her home base in San Francisco.

The SLC studio, just open since December 19, 2011, is the 56th or 58th studio (can't remember the exact number I was told) to open in the US since 2001.

Burr is in her 60s and let me tell you, she is what I want to look like when I am in my 60s. Strong, tight, fit. She looks better than most people I know in their 40s. That right there was a super motivation boost for my commitment to this new program. Enough to get me up early tomorrow (Saturday) morning so that I can get my 4th class in for this week.

And even more motivation? There was a spunky 87 year old woman doing the class, looking great, holding her own, showing us that getting older doesn't have to mean giving up on being fit and active and feeling good. Bless her. There's a good role model and even more motivation.

If you want to know more about the Bar Method, check out what I wrote a few days ago, complete with some helpful information and internet links. You can also check out Burr's blog here.  I love this exercise program.
