From the Barre to the Boulevard: Lauren Edition


15LBW01_Lauren_Gear_4


The Barre to the Boulevard series are mainly to show you how to take the beautiful gear LB has in their retail offering and give you ways to wear it through out your busy day. Well guess what else needs to go from the barre to the blvd? That rockin' bod you've been toning up. So June's "ItGirl" Lauren was styled in a few current summer favorites from Townhouse Boutique in Hoboken. If you want to have sun-kissed sculpted shoulders, a strapless number is the route to go. This modern jumpsuit can be worn casually or can be dressed up to various degrees depending on the accessories.

Style tip: give wide leg silhouettes {like this} some love with the perfect height of a wedge.

All that glute work in class is good for something when it comes time to showstop in shorts! A printed pair plus a textured top are the recipe for a heatwave. If you're ready to show the core, in an non-Britney circa 99 way, wearing a bandeau under a sheer piece like this is the perfect peek!

Derrière Diary: Tiffany Edition Week 2


15LBW18_DerriereDiary_Header


Every day we witness the incredible transformations our clients go through. These untold stories continually inspire us to keep doing what we love. We realized, if these stories inspired us then imagine what it would do for our community!

So we started the Derriére Diary, a series of stories that aim to motivate those looking to reach their own goals and challenges. The same ones our clients go through every day. 

But to start off we needed a strong voice. A fixture in our local community who’s brave enough to put their goals and progress on display in real time, for the world to see. So we invited the beautiful Tiffany Pinero to share her fitness journey. 

Read about her first week here.


Week 2: June 22 - 28th

15LBW18_DerriereDiary_BlogStats_WK2

This week was challenging because work wise I was so busy. I was happy to have completed four barre classes, two of them being challenging private sessions with Lauren. I wanted to better with my eating so I didn’t diminish my hard work. My jammed schedule made it difficult for me to work in any extra cardio and I felt like I didn’t do the best job packing snacks which made me very hungry in situations where there were little to no healthy options.

Fortunately, Local Barre hooked me up with Tamara, a Holistic Health Coach! With just a few minutes to chat she already has provided me some encouraging food solutions for when I get in those situations so I am excited about that!

Having Lauren really study my form has been amazing. She noticed I work my body in a linear way and has been challenging me with circuits and moves that also work my body laterally. My hips and lower back feel so much looser it has made a world of difference in just a couple of days. I am loving the weighted series. My arms are already looking a touch more toned and I feel myself lasting longer in plank and increasing my push ups.

MONDAY - Cardio/Circuit Private Session with Lauren

TUESDAY - Rest Day

WEDNESDAY - Duet Private Session with Lauren

THURSDAY - Open Barre with Megan

FRIDAY - Open Barre with Amber

SATURDAY - Cardio on my own

SUNDAY - Rest Day


Coming Up

This week I am actually away on vacation but that's not keeping me from my workouts. Lauren was able to help me set up a schedule for my week away.

Mini Challenge: This week I'm going to master the WALL SIT! Stay tuned on instagram to see how you can help!

The Program

Tiffany’s 8 week journey is centered around Local Barre and Wheelhaus programs, with a mix of private sessions and cardio. Her program will be guided by June’s It Girl Lauren Doto. With weekly check-in’s, Lauren will not only design her weekly schedule, she’ll also be there as a cheerleader to motivate Tiffany along the way!


Tiffany's Story

Hi, I’m Tiffany! If you're a barre babe who reads this blog you may know me as the fashion stylist who helps take your favorite barretenders From The Barre To The Boulevard.

Today I announced on my blog that I am writing a book! This exciting project will be filled with images of yours truly showcasing some of my favorite styling tips. The photoshoot is coming up and I want (need!) to feel stronger, fitter, and more confident in front of the camera. So this 8 week challenge couldn’t come at a better time.

Even though I engage in some kind of workout 4-5 days a week and eat pretty clean, I don't feel like my physique has been reflecting that as of late. It’s time for me to shake things up and push myself from good to great! Follow me on my journey on this blog and on instagram!

This first week felt pretty good. Mentally, I was happy just getting the work done. I attended a family party and a father’s day gathering this weekend and all the hard work I put in kept me in check when it came time to choose what and how much was on my plate.

MONDAY - Barre Based Private Session with Lauren

TUESDAY - Cross Training Private Session with Lauren

WEDNESDAY - Rest Day

THURSDAY - Wheelhaus Cycle Straight Up

FRIDAY - Open Barre with Amber

Coming Up

This week I want to work on my form in class to make sure I am getting the most out of every move. When my thighs are on fire I know I am doing it right :) I also have an old injury that flares up on my right sciatic nerve, stretching really helps it. One of my goals will be to gain more flexibility in hopes that stretching will help my sciatica. 

Mini Challenge: This week I'm going to master the STRAIGHT ARM PLANK! Stay tuned on instagram to see how you can help!

On tap this month is our June #LBItGirl, Lauren, a one-time devoted client who realized her dream by becoming a Local Barre barretender.

Was there an interesting path that led you to teaching at Local Barre?
Ummm yes... I would literally fantasize about becoming a Local Barre instructor. I had a playlist and red lip in my bag just on the off chance that the instructor had an emergency and I would get to save the day by teaching. This is not a joke people!


Health enthusiast? Tell us about your diet...vegan? raw? raw til 4? recipes? favorite seasonal dish or smoothie?
This is a tricky one. I try to eat well but sometimes the chicken parm takes over. I am happy to say that I have been able to limit it to once a month (down from 2-3 times a week) and have been drinking protein shakes now that the weather is nicer. I’ve also recently been on a Blue Apron kick which I LOVE!


Your go-to travel spot and why.
Pennsylvania. It is where my husband and I are from and we have a house there.
