We are beyond excited to say it, and we can’t even believe it has been 1 year since we opened the doors to 1445 The Alameda, but it has! In October of 2016 we began working toward making labarre studios what we envisioned it to be. The ribbon on one of San Jose’s historic buildings (#87 to be exact!) was cut and July 14th became an important day in our history.
With that, we welcome all to come to our Birthday party on Saturday, July 14th 2018… as we turn 1 year old!
Enjoy free express facials, birthday treats from Radical Snacks and No Cow, and exclusive anniversary merchandise! Receive 30% off labarre logo’ed swag and win prizes by participating in our donation-based raffle. A portion of our raffle proceeds will be donated to research for IPF (Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis).
Our anniversary celebration continues as we welcome you to bring friends on the weekend of July 27th-29th. Show them what you have experienced at labarre and let them enjoy it at NO COST along with refreshments, snacks, chair massages, hair braiding and 30-minute sample classes that are sure to get them moving (and a little sweaty!)
The next 2 days (Saturday, July 28th & Sunday, July 29th) labarre will be offering free 30-minute sample classes galore. Be sure to reserve your spot, as classes will fill up quickly!
Our Yelp “Wellness Expo” at Red Dot Fitness was a huge success. We have created a partnership with Red Dot Fitness. Now both labarre studios and Red Dot members can visit each other’s venue up to 6 times a month for just $80. This offer is extended to all labarre studios and Red Dot Fitness members and pass holders. For more information, please inquire at our front desk.
We are going strong in our second month of “100 Days Summer Strong”.
We have asked members to track attendance by adding a star next to their names with every visit and the stars have come out! Not only are the charts getting filled, but the Century Board is also getting populated so keep up the great work!
Guests also continue to participate in our 14 weeks of Instagram challenges. They have posted imagery and won great prizes… so don’t miss out. There are plenty of weeks left to get involved as we have 1000’s of dollars in prizes we are awarding, so start “gramming!”
Quick heads up – we will only offer one class on the fourth of July (6:00am) due to the Red, White and Rose Parade! If you want to enjoy the parade we have included parking and road closures here! Also, a quick heads up for the July 4th week. At labarre, we are hoping you have a wonderful holiday and can steal away for a few days. Our team will be doing that as well but we will have classes, of course, to assure our members can keep their regiment strong during these summer months. We will have a modified schedule, though, and want everyone to be aware so please check the holiday weekly class schedule and lock in your workout times!
As we do to every month, let’s take a peek of the ever-growing Century Board located down our alley at 1445 The Alameda!

Lastly, a wellness tip from our Total Reset Program coach, Jacquelyn Hollenkamp
July Health Tip: Have No Fear of FAT!
When most people think of fat, they think of something they want to avoid. In the late 90's, there was a boom of low-fat foods, and fat was vilified as something that was bad for our health. However, current research is showing just the opposite. Fat is a necessary part of a balanced eating pattern, and is the foundation of hormonal balance, brain health and even sustainable weight loss.
Where we need to be cautious is selecting the types of fats we eat. Fats such as shelf stable oils (think: canola, soybean, vegetable, cottonseed, etc.), shortening/margarine, and anything with the word "hydrogenated" are best avoided. These types of fats are highly inflammatory and end up sticking around in our bodies for far too long. The types of fats we want to include in our daily eating patterns are things like avocados, extra virgin olive oil, salmon, nuts, seeds, coconut milk/oil and grass fed butter. These fats support our delicate hormone balance, mental power, cardiovascular health and so much more!
-1/2 cup Gluten Free Oats (I love Bob's Red Mill brand), cooked in 1 cup of plain almond milk
-1 scoop of Collagen Protein stirred in (I love Bulletproof brand)
-1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
-1/2-3/4 cup of sliced strawberries
-small handful of torn fresh basil leaves
-1 Tbsp balsamic vinaigrette
sprinkle of Himalayan sea salt
