This morning when Andy mentioned he wanted to read his paper, I told him I already brought it in before my five mile run this morning (very happy for the warm weather so I can run again!) and I went into the other room to pick it up off the floor. I guess there isn’t really a big difference between leaving it in the hallway or bringing it inside if it’s only going to stay on the floor right by the door anyway, but I like to think I’m being helpful.
And for those wondering, yes, my boyfriend subscribes to the NY Post and no, he is not in line with their viewpoints and yes, he subscribes (mostly) for ironic and entertainment purposes.
So I picked up the paper and out fell Page Six Magazine. Then I remembered — I was set to be quoted in this issue!
It took no time at all to find the article, and I read through it all rather than jumping directly to my quote. That took restraint but I really wanted to read the quote in context. Also, I was nervous about it and wanted to delay my part in this article for as long as possible. I always wonder if I’m going to be taken out of context or sound stupid.
Luckily, neither was the case and I am thrilled with how the article turned out! Here is the online version: Barre Buster. My quote is on page 2.
It is all about the methodology behind the Refine Method and how this class differs from the barre classes popping up all over New York City. Brynn Jinnett, founder of Refine, explains why taking ballet-based classes won’t make your body look like a ballerina.
The entire piece was so informative and is a fantastic resource for anyone interested in the differences between Refine and barre classes, or for anyone just interested in learning more about exercise. I am so proud of Brynn and so happy to have found a fitness class that I love, that offers phenomenal results, that is fun and that I look forward to. I also love the individual attention and correction. Last night in class, Brynn spent the entire time fixing people’s form and making sure we all understood the proper way to do the exercises. And I miss Refine when I have to take time off, like when I was training for a marathon. That is actually part of the reason I don’t think I want to do another!
And to address what I know you’re all thinking, I asked my friend Melissa if being in the NY Post makes me a Republican. She said no, just a member of the East Coast Media Elite. I’ll take it!
