Rituel Studio Paris review Xtend Barre class

While in Paris for a few days last week, I was on the hunt for a fitness class and decided on Rituel Studio‘s Xtend Barre class. It would be my first bar class in France (and first time trying the Xtend Barre method) and I was looking forward to it after an afternoon of travel. If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you know I majorly miss going to studio exercise classes since there aren’t any near where I live.

What I love and hate about Les Mills’ BODYATTACK

What I love and hate about Les Mills' BODYATTACK

Over the years I’ve tried a variety of Les Mills classes but it wasn’t until I moved to France that I had the pleasure of experiencing a BODYATTACK class on a hot and humid August afternoon. I tried it, nearly died, and left red faced wondering why I thought trying BODYATTACK in a gym with no A/C was a good idea. I vowed I’d never return.

Then I moved back home to the USA, got involved with other fitness classes and never thought about BODYATTACK again because it wasn’t offered at my gym. Flash forward three years and here I am back in France at the same gym where I first tried BODYATTACK. I now take the class regularly and I actually look forward to the swift kick in the rear every Wednesday night.

Things I miss about the American fitness

We have it pretty good in the US when it comes to all things fitness. Even suburbs have a variety of gyms, classes and activities to keep even the most energetic fitness nut from getting bored. I didn’t realize just how good I had it until I moved abroad. Here in my little corner of France, the fitness scene is severely lacking.

Here are 3 things I miss about the American fitness scene (and 4 things the French win at).
