Happy Wednesday everyone! Today’s Wednesday Workout post is a little different, but you have to keep things fresh, ya know?
Last week, I decided to try out a class at Burn SF, since it’s close to my house and I wanted to shake things up.
The class is a combination of resistance, using weights and a pilates spring board, and cardio. We did lots of arm, core and leg work plus a ton of dynamic cardio. Suffice to say, I really found out why the class is called Burn-every muscle in my body was fatigued (in a good way) by the end of the 55 minute class. Watch the video below to catch a quick glimpse of what class might be like (each class is different!)-
Despite emerging from the class embarrassingly sweaty, I absolutely loved the class! Burn had all of the benefits of a traditional pilates class, plus great cardio work. I felt like I was standing taller and more aware of my core and posture at the end of class, yet I also thought I got in a really challenging and effective cardio workout, which I think is the one element that I think is missing from traditional pilates classes.
I could blab on about the class all day, but I decided to go straight to the source for more information on the history of Burn. The founder and owner, Lisa Corsello, was nice enough to answer a few questions about Burn. Read on to get the inside story.
