Boston Sports Club UFX & VBarre Giveaway

How is it almost Friday already??  This week flew by, which is great, but its been crazy busy too!  I’m still having Reach the Beach withdrawals, Brian turned the big 3-0 yesterday (!!), and we’re having a big birthday bash at the house this weekend that I am feeling very unprepared for. 

Well, I’m prepared but I just wish I had more time to get everything done!!

I also still have lots to share from the rest of my Reach the Beach experience, but first I have an AWESOME giveaway…unfortunately this is for the readers that live near a Boston Sports Club!

Boston Sports Clubs has recently started two new Small Group Training classes:  UFX and VBarre!

In addition to the regular classes offered to members of BSC, they also offer these small group training sessions where you pay an fee to take a specialized class for a session (usually 8 weeks).  These small group training classes are offered to members AND non-members. 

I took these descriptions from the BSC website:

VBarre

Vbarre

Vbarre transcends the typical ballet barre exercise class by blending ballet, Pilates and resistance training into a calorie-burning workout. The result is a lean and sculpted body in minimal time. Choreographed movements using a ballet barre, light weights and a glide board are set to motivating music. (source)

I’d imagine this is their version of the barre classes that have become so popular lately. 

The other class is UFX or Ultimate Fitness Experience!

UXF

What happens when you combine personal training with team motivation? You get in the best shape of your life with the UXF ultimate fitness experience. This eight session, cross-training workout blends strength training and cardio conditioning to improve your flexibility, agility, strength and endurance. Equipment such as TRX, kettlebells, ropes and bars are mixed with plyometric exercises to create a balanced circuit where you progress at your own pace. UXF is your one-stop shop for a total-body workout. (source)

This class has a lot of what sounds like aspects of Crossfit!  If I wasn’t already involved with Crossfit I’d definitely want to take this class!!  I bet its a butt kicker!

So now for the details!

I am giving away one package of VBarre sessions and two packages of UFX sessions!!! 

Here’s what you need to know:

UXF (Ultimate Fitness Experience)

Get in the best shape of your life with UXF – the Ultimate Fitness Experience. This comprehensive, body-changing workout combines strength training and cardio conditioning to improve your flexibility, agility, strength and endurance.

  14. My favorite fitness class is kickboxing. The energy of the instructor and the other people in the class is motivating. Plus, all those kicks and punches helps relieve a lot of tension. The instructor teaches a UFX class right after one of the kickboxing sessions and it looks intense. I'd love to try that. Thanks!
