Burn for Beating Hearts

Brooks Wright was an active, 65 year old man who had taken all the right steps to being healthy. For more than 25 years, he was running and walking as well as keeping an eye on his diet, making sure he took in a healthy amount of fiber and limiting his fat intake. He had quit smoking 12 years prior and was feeling great. Although he suffered from a stroke in 2002, it didn’t hold him back. In fact, after doctors cleaned out both his carotid arteries, he was right back at his active lifestyle and healthy eating. Brooks was a school bus driver for many years, which contributed to many a stressful mornings and afternoons but he loved it nonetheless.

Brooks has been a client of Barre Co. since July of 2011. He has been an active part of our barre family and took an amazing 256 barre classes in 2012. Before knowing about Barre Co., Brooks met Jennifer Travelsted, co-owner, and instantly trusted that she knew what she was doing. He could tell how knowledgeable she was about the fitness industry and how passionately she poured herself into her new, growing business. Brooks decided to try a Barre Co. class thinking he had nothing to lose and was immediately addicted. Jen, alongside her partner Danielle Smith, go above and beyond when it comes to Barre Company and it shows.

Brooks was taking a Barre Co. class on the morning of January 8, 2013, thinking it would be like any other day. After his class ended, he ate lunch then began to notice he wasn’t feeling well. He knew something wasn’t quite right, because he was experiencing some pain in his upper back that radiated through to his chest, but chalked it up to muscle spasms and continued on with his day. He ran his afternoon bus route but still wasn’t feeling well so, to be on the safe side, decided to visit his doctor. Before Brooks felt like he could even comprehend what was happening, he was loaded onto a life flight to Vanderbilt hospital.

“It wasn’t until I was loaded up on a life flight that I realized the severity of what was happening. I just tried not to panic.”

Once Brooks arrived at Vanderbilt hospital, doctors put 2 stints in his left anterior descending coronary artery, treated him with medication and put him on bed rest for 48 hours. An alternate name for this is the Widow maker due to the fact that any type of blockage in the particular artery will likely cause a massive heart attack that leads to sudden death. Brooks had somehow made it through an entire day of working out, enjoying lunch, and driving kids home from school before finally going to see his doctor. After 48 hours of bed rest, it was mandatory that Brooks get up and moving around again. Doctors made sure to tell Brooks that the diet and exercise regimen he was following prior to the heart attack was most likely the cause of his survival. They insisted he continue doing whatever he was doing as it saved him in this life-threatening situation.

Brooks was put into cardio rehab at the hospital within a week of his surgery and was allowed to return to Barre Co. after 6 weeks. Doctors reiterated to Brooks how important is was that he continue doing whatever he was doing, health wise, prior to the heart attack. By April 3, 2013, Brooks had returned full time to Barre Co. and hasn’t looked back. Today, Brooks feels stronger and more comfortable with himself. He is so much happier than before and swears that Barre has not only offered him physical health benefits, but mental as well. His self-esteem has grown exponentially. He describes Barre Co. as a “cleansing experience” which has had a profound effect on his life. He says, “Jen and D (Danielle) are the best at what they do. All the instructors are well trained and care about their clients. That means a lot and shows that they are all in it for the right reasons”.

February is American Heart Month. We typically look at the heart as a symbol of love this time of year. This year, show yourself some love and stay heart healthy. Cardiovascular disease in the #1 killer of men AND women in the United States. We typically look at heart disease, stroke and heart attacks as something that happens to men, but women are at risk too. The symptoms are different than those that men experience, making it harder for women to distinguish normal pain from life threatening pain.

At Barre Co., we have added new classes to our schedule to offer our clients more variety and balance to their fitness regimen. One of our newest, and already very popular, classes is our Cardio Burn. Clients are burning close to 600 calories in about 45 minutes of intense cardio activity followed by 10 minutes of stretching. For overall cardiovascular health, the American Heart Association (AHA) recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity cardio activity or 75 minutes of vigorous cardio activity per week as well as muscle strengthening activity at least 2 days per week. Our cardio class not only meets these standards, but also exceeds them and works in conjunction with our barre-based classes. Clients are also hitting their target heart rate in our cardio class according to the AHA guidelines. We hold our cardio class on Monday’s at 5:30 pm, Tuesday’s at 4:15 pm, and Wednesday’s at 8:30 am.

In honor of American Heart Month, Barre Co. will be holding a specialty class on February 28, followed by speakers to address the importance of heart health. We will be teaching a 75-minute, Cardio and Barre fusion class focusing on all the important aspects of heart health in conjunction with the AHA. We will combine intense cardiovascular activity with strength training and stretching. After class, Brooks Wright will tell his personal story of surviving a heart attack and Dr. Tullio Emanuele, a specialist in interventional cardiology, will speak about heart health and the importance of prevention. We invite everyone to come join us to spread awareness of heart health.

  1. CAB 토토 사이트 홍보를 해 왔던 총판입니다.
    작년12월부터 총판 수익금 526만원을 못받아서
    이렇게 먹튀 사이트에 글을 올리게 됐습니다,
    홍보를 꾸준히 해 오다가 홍보 방법이 막혀서 사전에 CAB운영진의 양해를 구해서
    7-8개월동안 홍보방법을 찾기위해 홍보를 못했습니다,
    그러다 올해 5월부터 홍보방법을 찾아서 홍보를 하다가
    도메인이 유해 사이트로 떠서 새로운 도메인 셋팅을 해 달라고 부탁드렸더니
    충분히 기다릴만큼 기다렸다고 도메인 셋팅을 안해주더군요,,
    홍보 준비하는 기간동안에 수익금은 500만원이 넘어 있었고,나는 정산금보다
    홍보를 계속하고 싶었는데,
    갑자기 도메인 셋팅을 안해준다고 하니,,,황당하더군요
    그래서 도메인 셋팅 안 해 줄거면 정산금을 정산해 달라고 햇더니
    “6개월반이나 기다려 아무성과가 없어서 정산금을 못주겟다네요,,
    그래도 5월에는 많지는 않지만 10여명정도 가입이 있었고,이제 어느정도 효과를 볼려고
    정산금 주기 싫어서 같이 일을 못하겟다고 하니,,,이게 먹튀가 아니고 뭔가요?
    내가 이렇게 글을 올리는것도 사전에 CAB운영진에 미리 얘기를 드렸고,마음대로 하라고 하면서
    관리자 비번과 텔레그램까지 차단했고,CAB 사이트에 자세히 알아보니,일반 유저 먹튀도 여러건 발견되어
    이대로 나두면 안되겠다는 생각이 들어 이렇게 글을 올립니다.
    일단 저와 제가 아는 동생이 CAB에서 놀았던 입금 계좌를 경찰에 아는분한테 제출을 할겁니다.
    지금 CAB을 이용하고 계신분이나 이용하실분들은 나중에 통장 계좌가 노출되어 경찰 조사를 받는일이
    없도록 CAB토토사이트 이용을 자제해 주시기 바랍니다,
    그리고 CAB토토 사이트도 상황이 복잡해지면 일반유저 먹튀도 예상되니까,
    가능하면 다른 사이트 이용을 부탁드립니다!!

  8. Под термином «профиль» в отношении пластиковых окон и дверей подразумевается материал, из которого созданы рамы и створки. Для вертикальных и горизонтальных элементов в окнах ПВХ используется сложная конструкция из металла (алюминия или стали) и поливинилхлорида. В поперечном сечении она представляет несколько продольных полостей, разделенных герметичными стенками. Такие полости называются камерами, чем их больше, тем, теоретически, лучше — окна становятся теплее и прочнее.
