Why It's Important to Take the Time to Workout

Before starting to take Pure Barre classes, I never realized the importance of having a workout routine that I actually stick to. Before barre, I played soccer freshman and sophomore year and I would run/go to the gym on my own. I am definitely not a runner and it always seemed like such a chore to me.

I decided to start taking Pure Barre classes last June and haven't looked back since. This isn't going to be a why I love Pure Barre post but taking barre has definitely helped me learn to love to workout!


As I mentioned, I took my first barre class right after junior year ended. Junior year, I probably worked out a solid two times all year. Junior year is stressful no matter what and not working out did not help out at all. I convinced myself I didn't have time- I take AP classes, I'm involved in school, I have a job, etc. The problem was I didn't make time and I definitely could of used a workout to relieve some stress.

This year, I've gone to class at least two times a week all year and it has been so nice. I know barre is a stress-free zone as phones are in a separate room and all you have to do is listen to the instructor and workout. After class, I am always in such a good mood and ready to take on the rest of my day.

Of course, it's not always easy to work out- some days the only class I can attend is the 6 AM and I dread the early wake up call- but it's so important not only for your physical health but for your mental health and well-being!

Why is it important to you to take time to workout? Let me know it the comments!
