1. The warmup is fun! You feel like a legit ballerina right now.

You're basically the next Misty Copeland. [Brushes shoulders off.]

2. Wait...who knew moves so tiny could burn so much?!

I'm barely even moving my leg.

3. Are everybody else's thighs shaking like this?!

You don't understand what's happening to your body.

4. OK, this chick at the barre next to you is clearly an undercover professional ballerina sent here to make you look bad.

Overachiever.

5. That moment when you slip out of your tuck to stretch while the instructor isn't looking...

Ahh, sweet relief.

6. You try so hard to hold that ball with your butt and thigh but it keeps popping right out.

This is way harder than it looks, alright?!

7. Your butt is actually on FIRE right now!

Your butt has never burned like this before. This can't be good.

8. That moment when everyone starts showing off their full splits at the end of class like they're in a music video...

Right, because that's normal.

9. And you're like...

Seriously, WTF?

10. You actually contemplate buying one of these as you walk out of class.

11. But it's OK because you know it's all in the name of a body like this...

You know you'll be back.

The role of exercise is actually the most important and the most powerful, because - properly targeted body movements reverse the cause of muscular atrophy (flat, saggy muscle layers under the skin) - and by reversing muscle atrophy - the muscles get firm, lifted and push out against the skin - giving a smooth and toned appearance...and eliminating cellulite! When done properly - these body movements stimulate all 90 muscles in the female lower body. For more details on this please see ==> https://bit.ly/cellulitefreenow
