Barre Class Essentials

by Marissa on March 10, 2017

barre class essentials

My obsession with all things barre lately is off the charts. Maybe it’s because I love how I feel so strong and energized after class at The Bar Method or maybe I just really love the grippy socks and open-back tanks. Either way, I put together this list of barre class essentials that I’m relying on regularly right now or that are on my own wish list. 

For me, in addition to being comfortable, my barre class essentials must meet two criteria: 1) layer well and 2) transition seamlessly from the studio to the street because I often find myself going to brunch, coffee meetings or running errands right after class. All of these items serve both purposes. 

And before I let you go, I feel I need to do all women everywhere a favor by singing the praises of the Alo Goddess ribbed leggings. This post isn’t sponsored at all, but I feel so strongly about them because not only are they the most comfortable leggings I’ve ever owned, they also flatter every figure. Seriously, do yourself a favor and get a pair – or two!

When it comes to gift-giving, I love giving (and receiving) gift sets.

Can we talk gym bags for a minute today? I seriously feel like I’ve been on the search for the perfect gym bag for years and can never seem to find the right one.  I totally envy those women who can go from gym to work or gym to dinner with nothing more than their […]

Skoop: Plant-based Protein Powder

November 18, 2014

  Being an athletic person who is dairy-free and for the most part limits animal products, finding acceptable protein powder for my needs has been a years-long challenge. Most plant-based protein powder that has come before either didn’t blend well, didn’t digest well or had an unpleasant aftertaste leaving me to give up on them altogether.  […]
