Emanuela Verardi – Transforming through barre

We are starting off the year with a strong figure. Emanuela is an excellent representative for CarmelBarre because of her hard-work and dedication to the studio.  We asked her a few questions regarding CarmelBarre and here are her answers…
  • When did you start going to CarmelBarre and why?

A few years ago, a friend mentioned barre to me and how much she was enjoying the workouts, so I decided to give it a try!

  • How does CarmelBarre benefit you and your life?
Over the course of these past two years, barre has done more for me than I could have ever imagined! It has improved my muscular structure, my mental tranquility and my overall confidence as a woman in this world.
  • How is CarmelBarre incorporated into your life?
CarmelBarre has become part of my daily routine. I try to get to a class at least 4 days a week, and with three studios and morning/afternoon/evening classes this is easily doable. Apart from the actual workouts, CarmelBarre is always hosting fun events which allow you to practice barre while engaging with your community.
  • What keeps you coming back?
The shaking! The burning! The community! And of course the results (I have never actually been able to find a workout which produced actual results until now)…I think it is so rare to find a workout routine that doesn’t eventually get boring. I’ve taken more than 130 classes at CarmelBarre and have never felt bored or unchallenged! I love how adaptable barre is to any body type and strength. Any move can be made more challenging or modified down. Feeling that sore bum or oblique the next day always keeps me coming back for more.
  • What is your favorite part about CarmelBarre?

Arianne and her team are truly the best. They know what they are doing and love pushing you beyond the limits you have set for yourself. Carmel Barre is the perfect place to break away from your busy schedule and just focus on you, even if just for a quick 45 minute express class. Thank you CarmelBarre! You have enhanced my mind, body, and soul; for this I am eternally grateful.
