If you know me, even a little, or if you follow me on social media - you've known this day was coming. I celebrate my day with much anticipation, and I celebrate it loudly...Read More
This weekend was a BIG weekend! Together with my friends from The Inner Cycle, my husband and I opened our fourth Energy Barre studio! We are fondly referring to this new venture as EBIC - a beautiful fitness haven in North Reading where two like-minded businesses are bringing the community the best of barre and spin under one roof! It's pretty unbelievable to walk into this space and say that it is in-part mine. Someday (soon hopefully), I will write about how we dreamt up this idea and patiently waited for the right opportunity to fall into our laps, but today I am not really here to write about EBIC.Read More
You've decided to set big goals, to take on new commitments, and to do so to better yourself.
This mentality is refreshing and exciting in January because we believe that there is more for us to get out of life...Read More
The final week of The Energy Barre's Fall In Love With Your Body Challenge has begun!
This week's mantra is somewhat of a perfect contradiction: There is no end.Read More
Aristotle once said, "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence therefore is not an act, but a habit."Read More
Today I was able to make it to my favorite yoga class for the first time in what feels like months. I was so happy to walk through the doors into the warm room knowing that the next 90 minutes were all mine. Phone off, body on. I laid on the mat with my eyes closed and smiled. Grateful for this time and this opportunity.Read More
I decide how my story ends.
I think it is safe to assume that we have all experienced a time when we set out on a new mission with completely clear intentions, a solid dedication, and strong proclamations that THIS is the new way, THIS is the time I will (fill in the blank), THIS is going to change my life -- and then as time rolls on and the new wears off, so does the excitement and so does the intense dedication. Even when our intentions remain clear, we've lost the drive and the ability to stay the course because LIFE happens.Read More
This week, let's feel empowered!
If you've been following along, you know that The Energy Barre "Fall In Love With Your Body" challengers have just entered week 5 of the 8-week challenge. This is a big week. The halfway point has been passed, and there is no doubt that if a challenger has been completing the challenge guidelines each week, they are looking to see their results start to shine through.Read More
Have you ever heard the expression, You're all in, or you're all out?
It's true on so many levels. You can show up and physically, give 100% to the result you are working for (all in), but if you're mind is not in it, you're all out.Read More
Let me start this post by saying that your life is not a series of days meant to be carried out in script with a predetermined beginning, middle, and end. You are meant to evolve, learn, develop, and create the story of your life. The story of who you are today and who you are tomorrow.Read More
I have what I need.
It’s a simple mantra and a simple thought process that can bring peace and serenity to the struggle until the struggle is ultimately gone.Read More
Mindset is everything.
Thoughts are more powerful than anything that can be put to words, so we must consider how we THINK to be just as important as how we SPEAK.Read More
I do not tend to have discussions surrounding "diet" with The Energy Barre Babes. The primary reason being that I am not a certified nutritionist. I am not educated in the field of nutrition and do not feel qualified to tell another person what to eat. I believe that an individual's diet should be determined by a number of factors unique to that person including: daily activity, nutritional needs, likes and dislikes, personal goals, budget, season, and geographic location. With that said, through my own trial, error, personal research, and observation, I have discovered many misconceptions, truths, tricks, and hacks that I would feel comfortable sharing with others as guidance....if only we had the time!Read More
This time last year I didn't even know how to pronounce "barre." It's amazing to think how much can change in a year. I'll always remember 2015 as the year I discovered The Energy Barre...Read More
