If I say the name Emmett Blois, some of you will know him as a contestant on Big Brother Canada season 1, others may know him as a runner-up on Amazing Race Canada season 4, while others know him as the owner of The Barn.
You may be wondering, “what is the Barn?” Well, the Barn is Nova Scotias newest fitness facility. It is located in Elmsdale just 35 minutes outside the city. It was created with full intentions of assuring that each of their members has an opportunity to achieve their fitness goals.
This past weekend the Barn was offering free classes all day on May 7th. For me, this was the perfect time to check out the gym that I have been wanting to try since the day they opened, back in October 2016.
I went with the intention that we were going to be doing a Hybrid class, however, when I arrived I was pleasantly surprised to find out it was actually going to be a core class!
8 stations, 45-second sets, three times through. Time goes by without you even noticing, and 3 days later I’m still feeling that ab workout.
If the Barn was a little bit closer to the city I would buy a membership without question! They provide customized workout plans to all their members. This sets all of their members on the right track and provides their members with a clear goal and educates them on how they can achieve their goals. They also offer 30+ metabolic conditioning classes a week. These classes are a huge hit at their facility. They are high energy and they make working out fun. Working out is always easier when it’s made fun!
In the coming weeks, the Barn is hosting an Outdoor Bootcamp in Halifax. I have already signed up for this and I am looking forward to changing up my everyday workout routine. The Bootcamp is taking place three times a week for eight weeks! I can already feel the 6 pack of abs I’m going to have in eight weeks time (HA imagine that).
If you’re interested in checking out the Barn your first class is free! After that they have a drop in feee of $14 a class.If you really love it (which you will), memberships are also available for $84 a month. Membership includes, all classes (except yoga – which is $5 per class for members), a workout plan, a meal plan, and towel service.
