For anyone who didn’t get that reference that would be a Best in Show reference, a movie that completely cracks me up with its ridiculous idiocy every time I see it. So when I walked into Tanya Becker’s Physique 57 class on Sunday and saw Parker Posey standing there ready to p57-fiy herself (I didn’t know her name, I just knew she had a WEIMARANER (yes, as in my adorable dog, DIRTY JERSEY!!) in the movie!!) it set the tone for my perseverative brain to repeat “GET YOUR BUSY BEE!” as I moaned and grunted my way through Tanya’s intermediate p57 class.
So let’s be honest, I probably should have taken an open class. Maybe a beginner…I am definitely slightly unfamiliar with p57 having not done it in a year +, but always the competitor I went with my friend KR to enjoy an a** kicking workout with Tanya. Let’s just say, I might be a convert. And not because there was a celebrity whose name I didn’t know in the class.
This class is INTENSE. From the moment the music started and I grabbed those 8lb arm weights, we never stopped moving. In and out of super intense arms sequences, leg sequences that made me curse the day I decided this was a good idea, and core work as well. Although to some degree I find a lot of the new “bar” hype to be a gimmick, this bar was ‘done’ in an extremely challenging way. It added difficulty to already arduous sequences and generally was brutal. The one thing I felt about p57 that I don’t necessarily feel about other workouts it the intense leg focus. Legs are something I am very lazy about, I am unfamiliar with how to work them well and tend to let them fall by the wayside. This specific, targeted and EXTREMELY difficult workout really showcases kills your legs.
After the class my wheels were definitely spinning…this might be something my ‘wedding’ routine could use…Details to follow… 🙂
Despite literally being sore after I walked out of the gorgeous Spring Street/6th Avenue studio (conveniently located minutes from my apartment and my work…hmmm….) I enjoyed a delicious brunch at Spring Street Natural with KR. As KR and I gossiped wedding-ness (where ARE we going to find those perfect accessories to match our EPIC wedding dresses…) we also enjoyed the fresh and healthy SSN fare. Spring St. Natural never fails to get my vote for lunch or brunch, tons of fresh and healthy options, and a burger in case you wanted that too 🙂 My egg white omlette had a nice amount of salmon, asparagus a little goat cheese. Yum….
So tell me lovelies: What is a new workout you’ve tried lately & loved/hated?? And what part of your body are you LAZY working out (or is that just me…mile long list…)…
Also enjoyed dinner at Panca and Bar’rique this weekend. Details to follow, surely. Who doesn’t like a long-winded restaurant review 🙂
