The Bar Method with a side of Adora Calcium- oh and a giveaway.

Last week I went to an event that Boston Parent Bloggers coordinated with the good people at 360PR. It was really well run, food and babysitting (!), and gave me good information and a nice goody bag. These are all things I truly appreciate when I am driving into the city to attend an event about calcium in the middle of the day. They gave us one more thing that really pushed me over the edge to get off my butt and go – an abbreviated barre class. THAT I was really excited about.

I hadn’t attended an event for BPB in a while and I like to represent. The stars aligned, the subject was something I like, nutrition and exercise, and I knew you would too. So there I was mid day on a Wednesday schlepping my littlest into the city.

We had a short talk from a nutritionist working with Adora calcium. I am of a certain age when I need to be considering the amount of calcium I’m getting. The dreaded O-word. Osteoporosis. Nobody wants brittle bones. That doesn’t even sound nice.

First, get your Calcium from food. You can get it from dairy, greens, and if you like ’em sardines are good too! If that’s proving difficult, it’s time to supplement. Which is where Adora comes in. It’s chocolate ladies – Chocolate. It comes in the milk or dark variety and provides 100% of the Daily Value of calcium plus the addition of vitamin D3 for improved bone health and magnesium for optimal absorption. A yummy way to get what you need.

Next up for your bones. Weight bearing exercise. Enter – The Bar Method. After just one class I was totally hooked. It’s like grown up fitness ballet classes except not at all ;-) No classical music or tutus here. It’s a fast paced class with the music that I won’t let my kids listen to in the car. Awesome.

The Bar Method socks
Barre classes work arms, thighs, seat, and abs in an hour. I don’t think I would recommend it for weight loss or fat burning. But for toning – hell yeah. One of the best parts – cozy socks. You don’t need to worry if your feet have gotten a pedi in a while. You can get long lean ballet dancer muscles if you dedicate yourself three times a week. We’ll see, because I just signed myself up!



How about you? Would you like to give the class a whirl? I have two passes to give away to the Clarendon St. studio, which is gorgeous btw. You and a friend can go check it out. I promise you’ll be hooked after just one class.

Head on over to The Bar Method and take a look at ALL the class times they have! Let me know what time you like to work out.
Are you a milk chocolate or dark Chocolate kind of Adora gal? Let me know.
