Carpe Diem: Barbellas
EL PASO, Texas —
For women who think they will puke, pass out or die in a session of Crossfit..., there's a new local spin on the class just for them.
It's called Barbellas. When we went to try it for ourselves, one of the instructors described the Barbellas this way: "A barbell is often used in workouts ... Crossfit particularly and Barbellas is just a feminine spin on barbells. And this is an all-female class, so we're the Iconic Barbellas."
In this segment of Carpe Diem, we demonstrate what you can expect if you attend this class ... and show you where we first encountered the Barbellas for a bit of friendly competition.
