Bar Method's 90 Day Challenge is All About Eating Right
I'm about to embark on my second 90 day challenge at Vancouver's Bar Method in less than six months. I joined the Bar Method because I needed desperately to regain my phsical health, and to keep up with my very active pre-schooler without constantly running out of breath.
For those of you not yet aware of BM, its a rigorous program of excercise that combines, "the muscle-shaping principles of isometrics, the body-elongating practice of dance conditioning, the science of physical therapy and the intense pace of interval training into a powerful exercise format that quickly and safely reshapes and elongates muscles."
While the Vancouver location of the Bar Method, founded by Burr Leonard in 2000, is a great hub of instant social bliss around excercise and health on a daily basis, the 90 Day Challenge takes this vibe to another level: think prizes, holitistic nuturition worshops, recipes and food with Jennifer at My Edible Advice, a trip to do the Grouse Grind (haven't done that in over a decade), and a serious nudge to join this year's Underwear Affair.
Each Saturday, if I wear my Bar Method tank top (haven't worn one of those in ages), I'm told that I'll get a healthy smoothie after class. Jennifer has already made us some seriously yummie smoothies. And, I'd like to share one with you.
3 or 4 handfuls of spinach (organic preferred) 2 or 3 dates 1 banana Some ice/water to your desired consistency
This smoothie tastes as good as working out at the Bar Method makes me feel.
