Here’s Christa’s story:

“I love to run. My job is pretty high stress, and running just takes that stress and stomps it out. This might seem like a weird introduction to my love of barre, but after early knee arthritis took running away from me, I thought I would never find anything that kept me in shape while acting as a total stress release. Then I found iNSiDE Out STUDiO barre.

I still remember my first class. When leaving, I thought I wouldn’t be able to walk for a week. But the prolonged stretching during and after class did the trick – I was sore but able. And I was hooked. I started coming regularly. Before I knew it, I was working out at the barre almost daily. I (as well as everyone else) began to notice the expected benefits – weight loss with toned lean muscle. But I also noticed some extremely unexpected benefits. My flexibility was through the roof. Before starting barre, I could barely touch my toes. Now? It’s crazy! And even more unexpectedly, my arthritic knee pain has pretty much disappeared. As for stress-relief – from the moment I walk into the studio, I can feel myself relax. After an hour of burning, shaking muscles, that final stretch leaves me calm, collected, and ready to face the world again.” – Christa Dakin
