Meet Barre Groove Founder: Alanna Perry
What’s your advice for people looking to get back into a regular fitness/health routine this Fall?
Fall is a great time to link up with friends and start a NEW fitness routine! My advice is to try and find classes that make you so excited that you actually look forward to your workouts! Set weekly goals, plan to hit the gym 1-3 times per week, and include your friends so you can hold each other accountable (PLUS working out with friends is way more FUN!) 2019 isn’t over yet, you still have time to reach your goals!
What’s your favorite part about your class?
One of the things that makes BG special is that we offer a variety of unique classes that are all great workouts and a ton of fun! For bounce class, I love the fact that bouncing on a trampoline offers so many great benefits! They’re low impact exercises (which are great for runners!) but they still provide a great cardio workout, strengthen your core, and improve your balance.
For Pom, my favorite part is all the rewarding feedback I get from guests who cherish the opportunity to dance as much as me!
What would be your best advice to those who have never tried a Barre Groove class?
The classes are really fun and unlike anything else in Boston so my advice is to try it! I know from experience that it can be intimidating to try a new studio for the first time, but at Barre Groove we prioritize being welcoming and inclusive to everyone! Don’t worry about your workout experience or fitness level- all of our classes are designed to be just as effective for beginners as they are for guests who exercise every day.
Do you regularly switch up your workout routine?
We change our class routines every day so you will never take the same class twice! I think it’s so important to regularly modify your workout routine in order to stay engaged and excited to come to class! You should never dread your workout routine- it’s a lot easier to stick to your plan and reach your goals when you have fun exercising!
What’s the most rewarding part of working out for you?
The most rewarding part of working out is knowing that I’m doing something for myself! It’s 45 minutes – 1 hour everyday that is just for ME! It’s so easy to get caught up in our daily routines, to make excuses, and to just “not go” which makes it easy to fall off track. When you walk into class or block off that time at the studio you make a commitment to yourself to be better, mentally, physically and emotionally! I’ve never met anyone who has regretted working out at the studio!
