I’ve talked about my love for BarreAmped before on the blog – and now I wanted to talk about what I wear to class! Is it wrong to care about what you look like when you’re working out? (Do I really want the answer to that question? Obv. not) Call me vain, but I swear my workouts are at least 75% better when I feel good about what I’m wearing. I’m not saying I go in with a full face of makeup and leave class glistening with each hair perfectly in place. Normally, I look like a hot mess who went temporarily insane, and it’s all I can do to slowly stumble out of class as my muscles are still shaking. BarreAmped will do that to you.
But like my sleepwear, I am very picky about what I work out in. If my outfit doesn’t feel right, it’s all I can think about, instead of concentrating on my workout. And good workout clothes are SO comfortable! I hesitate to admit how many of those GapFit tanks I have. (Four. Crap, no, I have five.)
And if you live in an area that doesn’t offer Barre classes, you can always work out from the comfort of your home with a DVD! I bought the BarreAmped DVD for when I can’t go to class and love it. It’s honestly like taking a class, and Suzanne offers lots of modifications for beginners (and tired people like me). She’s encouraging and comforting at the same time on the DVD, which I appreciate.
If you take barre classes, what are your favorite pieces to wear?
