Our newest inductee into the BBS Hall of Fame is Monika! Monika has been a part of the BBS Tribe for over a year now. She wanted to share her journey and what barre means to her. We were all ears! Learn Monika's story, below.
"I saw the BBS new location sign on Bow Trail for a few months and after seeing something about the Barre workout trend on TV I told myself this is something I want to try one day. In November 2015 I was given a free pass to try BBS. After I got home from my first class I told my teenage girls that I’m never going back there again! I worked out muscles I never knew I had and ached all over. But after seeing the intro special I figured I owed it to myself to go back and try it again. Of course this was after the pain had subsided from those unknown muscles mentioned before. I soon figured out that every class had a different instructor and every instructor and class had new moves that I hadn’t seen (or felt) before. Something just seemed to make sense and I kept on going and going! The challenges were fantastic and really helped motivate me to keep going. I soon made some new friends and got to really enjoy the instructors and their different personalities. I’m now well into my second year and I’ve honestly never felt better in my entire life. I’ve recently turned 50 and I’ve learned that muscle toning is incredibly important for bone density and health as we age. And I love that I can now hold a plank longer than my athletic teenage daughters can! I truly believe that what BBS has created - with their fantastic instructors, great facilities and outstanding customer service - truly helps women become healthier, stronger and more beautiful versions of themselves. I can’t ever see a time where BBS won’t be an important part of my life."
Each and every one of you create an important piece in the puzzle we call the BBS Tribe. We wouldn't be who we are if it weren't for you. Thank you Monika, for giving us a chance (and a second chance!), it is our privilege to have you in our community. Congrats on your first year and here's to many more! May you always be able to "out plank" your daughters! ;)
