The Bar Method Salt Lake City

July 26, 2015

A few months ago, I was chatting to a friend and discussing what type of workouts we were doing. She told me that she had started going to The Bar Method quite a lot, and that she loved it. “Alice, it burns but it’s awesome and you’ll fall in love with it.”  – umm, with a statement like that, who wouldn’t give it a try! When I lived in San Francisco, I had heard about The Bar Method but never got to do a workout there. I did some research and found that there was a Bar Method studio in Salt Lake City, lucky me!

So frustrating but I am determined to reach my goals instead of sitting and whining about them. All I can do is push forward and see what works and what doesn’t.

I have slowly initiated change over the past few weeks; the purchase of my Polar heart rate monitor watch being one of them. I was curious to see how hard I was working and it has been so insightful. It has shown me that my cardiovascular is nowhere near as good as I thought it was and that I really need to step up my cardio game. I was actually really upset to see how high my heart rate was getting during my workouts, which sounds so silly, but it is disappointing when you thought you were much more fit than you actually are!
