For those of you who have done my class in recent years, you know I always called it “Celeb Barre.” Now I’ve got “ROCKSTAR BARRE!” This class fuses different disciplines of exercise into an entirely new format. The name really got me thinking… how do you connect to your inner rock star? What does it take to rock the barre like a star? So that’s what I want to talk about today—finding your inner rock star!!
First of all, what I know for sure is that my rock star barre class is addicting! It heats you up from the inside out and is an amazing way to burn fat, release toxins which results in weight loss! The endorphins you feel after a good body workout are part of what makes this class so enticing! That will definitely get you feeling like a rock star! But when it comes to connecting to yourself and feeling the power not just on the outside, but on the inside, too... it’s more than a good feeling after releasing toxins. It’s about real power that comes from physical activity!
I started thinking about The Wizard of Oz and how all Dorothy wants is to get back home. She tries all different sorts of things to find her way, but in the end, Glenda the good witch tells her, “You’ve always had the power, my dear. You just had to learn it for yourself.” This applies to us, ladies!! We have the power within us! All we have to do is see it for ourselves! Teaching exercise has always been so rewarding for me because you can see people finding their own power. I watch lives change from the inside out! I can see the glow and the beauty that comes from someone who realizes just how much they can achieve with their own power. It even affects your family… you’re happier, less stressed, and more patient! I can’t tell you how many men have come up to me and thanked me for helping their wives and girlfriends with such a big life transformation. The long-term effects are outstanding! When you find your power, you have more to give those around you because you are happier with yourself. That’s real change!!
You can truly find yourself in a workout… that’s when the transformation happens. I can give you the space and workout routines to follow, but finding that inner rock star is something you have to do on your own. It’s a different experience for every person! Maybe you have a little ritual you go through to mentally prepare for your workout… that’s what I do! Over the years, I’ve developed a routine that helps me get ready for the hard work ahead! It helps me get to my inner rock star. For me, it’s my rock star bracelet! It’s perfect for exercise because it’s lightweight and doesn’t make noise no matter if I'm strength training, aerobic training or barre. When I put that bracelet on, I’m ready. I know its game time! I let it be a symbol that helps transform me into the rock star I know I am!
Find what preparation works for you! Maybe you experiment with different things until you find what you like. Send me feedback and let me know what you’re trying and what’s working! There is room for all of us to be rock stars. We should support each other and draw out the best parts of those around us! Helping others is so rewarding. Helping the world is what makes me the happiest! That’s why I started my nonprofit, the Fox Fitness Project, to fight childhood obesity! You don’t have to start a nonprofit to help though—find your unique way to be the light and love to those around you! Not only do I want you to find your workout power and put on your ruby red slippers to become the BEST version of YOU… but I also want you to find your own personal power! I want you to find your passion in life! I want you to wake up healthy, energized and ready to ROCK the world like the star that you are!!
I always say, “Rock the barre like a star!” and with the holidays around the corner, share our Rockstar Barre class by giving the “GIFT of HEALTH” this year!?

Just like Beyonce says, “Who runs the world? GIRLS!” She’s so right… Let’s get it done, ladies! Find your inner rock star and you’ll never want to go back! Find the power in yourself and help others do the same. Love to you all!
