Some of you might know that I’m a moderator and the D.C. Regional Chair for the Her Campus Blogger Network. As regional chair, it’s my responsibility to plan meetups and events for local members. I do marketing and event planning for my “day job”, however, this is the very first blogging event I’ve planned on my own.
For our first HCBN meetup, I had to take the girls to one of my favorite barre studios in the area: Barre Tech. As a former ballerina and someone who hates treadmills, this workout is ideal. I took my very first barre class at Barre Tech back in September and they’ve successfully turned me into a barre addict. What I love the most about barre is that it’s a good workout for all levels. If you’re a little more advanced, you have the option to pile on more weights. If you’re like me and trying to get back into shape, you might not need to use any weights at all 🙂 Oops!
Special thanks to South Block Juice Co. and Sweetgreen for giving us delicious juices and salads to sample after class was over, and Lululemon Clarendon, South Moon Under and Kind Snacks for donating awesome goodies for our swag bags! I cannot wait to plan the next event for HCBN — and maybe this is a sign of more blogger events by me to come!
