For some time, now I’ve been shopping the chic workout gear at Pure Barre Sarasota, ducking and running when co-owners Sara Ferguson and Melissa DeMore offer a free class. But the offers also came from a few of my favorite friends who’ve attended for years, saying I should try it. However, I’ve just never been that girl who joins in a group class, aside from my must-have yoga, mainly because I consider myself uncoordinated that way. The last time I took a group class was in the ’90s, when Jane Fonda’s Step workout was hot. I was so embarrassed that I swore to Buddha I’d never attempt a class like that again.//Click Here for More @SarasotaMagazine.com
If you take your workout seriously then you’re gonna love being on the cutting edge with the hottest athletic gear out there. It’s called HPE (Human Performance Engineering) and founder Nick Harris has been at the forefront of the science of human performance since the 90s. Nick’s even worked with our own Brian Johnson of AC/DC during their world tour. And, HPE is gaining ground overseas in a major way. In fact, the line is launching in Harrod’s this June.
Intrigued? I was. As you can imagine, being exposed to a cool product has become an occupational hazard. But, the gear delivers more than it promises; I already feel the difference in recovery time after a serious Yoga class. And, wait ‘till you read what Nick says about how HPE will be your new go-to travel gear, especially in the battle against jet lag.//READ MORE @ SarasotaMagazine.com
I’m not sure when it happened but it is in fact November. With the holidays dangerously close it might be time to start planning for a little Zen, even get a jump on that New Year’s resolution you know you’re gonna make.
Let’s face it, often times the best motivator is to gear up and expand the athletic wear drawer. Hey, my theory (or justification) is whatever it takes to get to Yoga class. Consider the words of Academy Award winning costume designer Edith Head: “Life is competitive; clothes gird us for the competition.” // Click Here for MORE @ SarasotaMagazine.com
