Join Me At Barre Code Plano

Barre Code Plano

Whenever I change my fitness routine up, I notice the best results hands down. If you follow me on social media, you’ve probably noticed I’ve been doing a lot of spin lately. But in an effort to keep my muscles guessing, I’m also taking some classes at Barre Code.

Barre Code Love

I’ve taken many barre classes before, but love that Barre Code really focuses on three things: cardio, strength training and restoration. There are a number of different classes they offer, including Total Body Conditioning, HIIT, Barre Code and many restore classes. They are also way less intimidating than some studios I’ve visited. In fact, their mantra is all about accepting what makes us different.

Barre Code also has some adorable apparel and accessories that make working out more fun! This “barre hair don’t care” tank? Obsessed!

I also giggle every time I wear these “tuck yeah” socks. (These are special barre socks that keep you from slipping during class. I highly recommend them!)

For February, Barre Code is doing their annual #BarreCodeLove campaign, celebrating self-love and body positivity. This is a an awesome campaign that reminds women that self-love is as important as the love we share for others.


The campaign kicks off Feb. 6 and Barre Code Plano has invited Kin & Kodachrome subscribers in for a free barre class on Feb. 7 at 6:45 pm! The class will be led by the store’s owner, Julie (she is the sweetest!), and cocktails will be served afterward so you guys can stay and socialize if you want!

I really hope many of you can make it! If you plan to attend, please shoot me an email at by Feb. 6.  Below is the address for all of you who can attend.

Free SoulCycle Spin Classes

SoulCycle Dallas Preston Hollow

Happy Monday, friends! I’ve got something that’s going to make your day just a little bit better. Because we received such a strong turnout on the recent classes I hosted, SoulCycle Preston Hollow is offering all Kin & Kodachrome subscribers free SoulCycle spin classes for two weeks! (See my recent post on SoulCycle here.)

The promotion will be offered from January 23 through February 6 (during the specified times listed on the flyer below). Kin & Kodachrome followers can call anytime after 3:00 PM on Mondays to be booked into classes for that week. Followers can also walk-in to the studio to take a class, but must arrive at least 15 minutes before the class begins.

Subscribers must present the flyer below to the front desk (printing out or showing via phone is fine)! I will be taking several classes myself over the next two weeks and would love to hear which ones you plan to attend. Happy sweating!Free SoulCycle Spin Classes Dallas

Those of you who followed me before I turned my blog into Kin & Kodachrome probably remember how into fitness I’ve always been. In fact, I’ve been working out since I was 13 years, running mostly. About 3-4 months ago, I trained 6 days a week to improve my race time and ended up burning myself out. My body (and mind) were begging me for a break. And so I gave myself some time off from working out.

But I’m ready to get back into the swing of things. It’s been about 3 months of me consistently not working. Sure, I will take a random barre or spin class, but nothing consistent by any means. While I was trying to think of how to get back into exercising regularly, my mind immediately went to SoulCycle. I took a class at the Preston Hollow SoulCycle location the first day it opened and it was one of the best/hardest workouts I’ve ever done. But what makes SoulCycle such an amazing fitness experience?


We’ve all heard it before, “location, location, location.” But it’s true. I love where the Preston Hollow SoulCycle location is. It’s so easy to get to and is near a number of great coffee shops and restaurants, so I love working out then running next door to grab a bagel and coffee at Einstein Bros. Bagels or down the street to have lunch at True Food Kitchen (seriously, my favorite!).


I can say honestly that SoulCycle is one of the best workouts I’ve ever had. I took a class a couple of weeks ago and looked like I’d just showered when I walked out of the studio. It’s that good. Each instructor I’ve taken a class with is so motivating and keeps the class moving nonstop so time flies by. I love how weights are incorporated into the rides as well so I feel like I get a full-body workout and not just cardio.


OK cute workout clothes may not be the key to a great workout, but they certainly don’t hurt. There’s something about being in a cute tank and leggings that just makes me feel better about exercising. SoulCycle has an entire apparel section in their studio filled with the cutest tanks, leggings, sweatshirts, hats, etc.

If you’re in the Dallas area, I’d love for you to come check out a free class that I’m hosting next weekend (details below). It will be so great to meet some of you and get in a good workout all at the same time! If this is your first time at SoulCycle, be sure to bring water! Shoes will be provided for you there, so you can wear any kind you’d like to the studio.

If you are planning to attend, please email me at by Friday, Jan. 13. Spots are limited!
