THIS MORNING I DID THE BEST exercise class ever - and for me to say that is saying something because I HATE CLASSES! This was called U BAR. It wasn't "I want to die intense" - it was just perfect and then at the end of the class, I definitely felt like I got a good work out and now... I am starting to feel very SORE!

I havent tried any "classes" per say... Well, I've done spinning (OMG NEVER. EVER. AGAIN) and some free Crossfit things. But never anything like Barre or Body Pump. I will see if there is a U BAR class near me!! <3
