Confession: I'm a workout virgin.

I dread going to the gym because I feel that I would be a total embarrassment to myself. So instead of grunting and heaving inside the gym, I decided to sweat it out at home.

I saw a tweet about and how it made that person lose weight and achieve a toned body in a few months. I immediately Googled for additional reviews on this online workout program, and saw good reviews. Barre3 at home for $15/month? I'm sold!

I'm proud to say that I've been doing it for three months now. Meh. Still not enough time to see some major changes, but I'm slowly getting there. I think.

I only do the workout 4 times per week. My priority area was my chicken legs. I wanted them to be bigger, so I focused on my stilt-like legs for 2 weeks by doing the 10-minute leg workouts (interchanging between Leg Shaper with Candace Ofcacek and Leg Shaker with Sadie Lincoln). My legs did get a little bit bigger and well-toned.

The mybarre3 workouts are easy to follow, but not easily achievable. The instructions are clear and understandable. It helps that the instructors' (Sadie Lincoln, Candice Ofcacek, Lisa Schale-Drake, etc.) voice are soothing.

Those barre3 “earthquakes” will be a constant in every workout. You'll feel it more when holding a certain pose. That's the hardest one for me. A real killer!

I try to imitate the poise and grace of a ballet dancer with every move during each workout, but my face and brain just wouldn't cooperate. I turn into The Hulk and I curse like hell when it's time to hold that dreaded pose. But with the changes that I've been seeing so far, I can say that the pain is worth it.

My next target areas are my core and back. I'm focusing on those two right now. My core's been floppy for years due to two pregnancies and I also have a lower back problem. I want to strengthen my back muscles to lessen my back pains. I will give you all an update in a couple of months.

Being vertically challenged, I am excited to achieve that barre3 benefit of being taller as claimed on their website as well. Love-leh!

So far, has been physically creating wonders for me and I plan to continue doing their workouts until I reach my goal of having a body exactly like Alessandra Ambrosio's! Kidding! I need Divine intervention and a whole lotta science for that one.
