Buffalo Barre’s “New Year, New You 30 Day Challenge” has come to a close and the winner of this challenge is Danielle DeMaison! Over the course of 30 days, Danielle took 41 classes (a Buffalo Barre 30 Day Challenge record), lost 5.5 lbs. of pure body fat (determined by her % body fat loss) and lost 4 1/2 % overall inches as measured in 5 key areas. She journaled her steps per day (10,000 – 12,500) her food consumption and Buffalo Barre workouts by using her Fitbit. She shared her journey throughout the challenge on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook by using our hashtag #BuffBarre30DC. She participated in 4 Nutrition classes including a nutrition and ground rules meeting, a healthy cooking class, a grocery store tour and a Weston A. Price meeting on how diet affects your dental and overall health. She attended our Man up to the Barre event with her fiancee and our Go Red For Women event in honor of Women and Heart Disease. She fueled her body with nutritious food, her mind with positive thoughts and she pushed herself. 30 Days later… she is so much stronger, toned and confident. If you haven’t seen Danielle in a while, this is what she’s been up to! She’s been working very hard at Buffalo Barre! Danielle was a dancer for many years and can often be found warming up before class starts by doing crazy upside down splits at the barre and other things that would put most of us in the hospital! She carries herself with this same grace during class and is never afraid to push herself to her limits. I don’t think she ever left a class without rosy cheeks, a smile and drenched in sweat! It didn’t start off this way though. It was hard for her in the beginning, but she kept coming back for more…again and again and again. She never gave up. That’s what I admire about you Danielle! YOU NEVER GAVE UP!
For winning the challenge, Danielle receives a free month of unlimited classes to Buffalo Barre, a gift certificate to Studio 2000 for a little pampering, a skin care gift set including NeriumAD night cream, day cream and firming cream to keep her skin glowing!
Here is what Danielle has to say about her experience with Buffalo Barre’s “New Year, New You 30 Day Challenge:”
“Participating in Buffalo Barre’s 30 Day Challenge was a life-changing experience. Not only did I lose weight and improve my overall health, I set myself up for continued success down the road.
The community at Buffalo Barre is amazing. I never once felt like I was in this alone. Not only did the dedication of my fellow challengers inspire me (these women really were a group of rock stars! I found energy from their strength!) but the support from the ENTIRE studio was just overwhelming! Previous challengers would reach out & share their triumphs and struggles, women I hadn’t even met before would ask me how the challenge was going, and regulars in class would check in daily with “you’re coming tomorrow, right?!” The sisterhood at Buffalo Barre is like no other! Even more exciting than seeing all of our final numbers, were the small victories along the way, and being right there beside my fellow challengers to celebrate them… cheering Mary on the first time she “flipped her dog,” getting a text from Ashley that she held her crow pose, or my personal best, holding a 60 second plank! I NEVER could have done that before the challenge!
I know for each of us this is just the beginning, and I can’t wait to see where the rest of 2015 takes us, thanks to Maria and her amazing team!”
