Desiree Hartsock's new life in Seattle sounds positively lovey-dovey, what with the Diamonds & Hearts-tinged tweets and Instagram pics she and fiance Chris Siegfried keep bombarding us with every five minutes. (Okay, that's an exaggeration, but still, they really seem hell-bent on letting us know how happy they are!) But apparently, getting smoochy with her supposed future spouse isn't all Des has been up to in the Emerald City. She's also back in the swing of things with her workout regimen! At least according to a tweet the former Bachelorette wrote late last week ...
To be fair, we probably can't credit barre as the ONLY way Des stays in shape. She's said she's a very active person all around, telling Shape back before her season aired all about her varied workout regimen:
I love going to spin class and hiking. I try to hike at least twice a week while taking a spin class or going to the gym also once or twice a week. I like to switch it up throughout the week so I don't get bored of the same activity or workout.
Still, it sounds like she's switching it up by taking Bar Method (one particular franchise) barre classes. The Pilates, yoga, strength training, and orthopedic stretching workout class seriously kicks your butt ... into gear, as Des said, and into amaaazing, perky, fit shape. Oh, and not just your butt. Its full-body toning and slimming effect is the reason friends of mine who are brides-to-be have sworn by it as a way to get fit for their Big Day. Classes leave you feeling exhilarated, rested, and like you got an incredible workout without dripping buckets of sweat.
I'm sure there's no end in sight to all the awesome workouts Des can enjoy in her active new hometown. But given its benefits, I'm guessing barre's one routine she'll be putting on heavy rotation.
Have you ever tried barre classes? Would you?
