All about barre-style workouts, what inspires me and tips on healthy eating for life

Living A Dream…


Today is just one of those awesome days. I woke up to my babbling, smiley little boy who turned 7 months today…or will be at 4:35pm to be exact 🙂 I taught virtual barre which was awesome. Work has actually been great today, very productive, no interruptions and some pretty fabulous brainstorming sessions, and to top it off I just received awesome news from TWO clients doing the barre n9ne® 60 day challenge….

I’m going to preface this with the fact that we are only 17 days in…yes 17 folks.

The first client I heard from today wrote ” I just got on the scale for the first time since starting this challenge and I have already lost 10lbs!” ISN’T THAT AWESOME!!!!!??? I am so happy for her. She also has give me little pieces of info along the way – such as “2 weeks ago I couldn’t even hold plank, last night I held it for 30 seconds! It’s amazing after 2 weeks I could be this much stronger. I love it.”  Or “I feel so much more accomplished now before I go to bed and it’s only been two days. It’s amazing what exercise and eating right can do for you in such a short time”.

The second client I heard from today wrote this: “I bought two skirts today online- one in my usual size, and one a size smaller, just in case. Looks like I am returning the usual size. Only 17 days into the challenge….just sayin.”

Call me crazy but you have NO IDEA how happy this makes me. When I opened this studio 1.5 years ago I was SO excited to share my passion and knowledge with the community. I love changing people’s bodies. I am obsessed with it 🙂 I think I am more excited for the 30 day mark (measuring) than these ladies doing the challenge! I can already predict that we are going to have total inches lost in the DOUBLE DIGITS!!!!!!

Thank you all for giving me the opportunity to live my dream and share my passion with you. I am grateful.

  1. wow!!! That is awesome!! I am SO thrilled to see how well this challenge is going so far! Not that I am surprised in the least. Living a dream is right. I am so impressed and inspired by you!

  2. Love love LOVE this, Tanya!! HOW freakin’ awesome is it that these ladies are already killing the challenge, not even halfway in?? So proud and SO thrilled to be part of this journey with you. You are such an inspiration. Truly.

  3. I knew this challenge would be great from talking to and seeing the wonderful Jolene and Jessica during their challenge. And now doing it myself, it’s nothing short of AMAZING. To have clothes fit (or even a little too big!) is so, so, so motivating. And the fact that it’s ENJOYABLE…I can’t think of anything better. I had a goal to wear a dress I bought from victoria’s secret but was too small, by the END of the challenge, and I totally just wore it out tonight. So awesome! And besides that I feel stronger, happier, and just great! Thank you so much Tanya, you really are quite inspiring, along with your team of instructors! 🙂
