Making Us Happy This Week

making us happy this week: 1.21.2015

Happy hump day, Tribe! In need of a little mid-week inspiration and positivity? Here’s a round up of the little things that are making us happy this week.

#failproof2015 endorphins. They just won’t quit, and we’re not mad about it. We’re not sure whether we can credit the failproof calendars (SO. GRATIFYING.), the collective air of “let’s kill it” in the studios or the awesome program, but staying on track and pushing ourselves harder than we have in a while feels so good. Also, some of you have already done your halfway barirx check-up consults, and… HOLY RESULTS. Keep up the great work, failproofers!

—#SOTU #POTUS swagger. (Or to translate into non-hashtagese, State of the Union President of the United States swagger.) Let’s all give a round of applause for last night’s ad-libbed zinger from President Obama. You go, Glen Coco.

—Lulitonix Black Magic. Because activated charcoal is so hot right now. If you haven’t tried this superfood elixir, it’s delicious (kind of like magical lemonade) and totally sexy. Grab it from the bari fridge in NYC!

The New Yorker’s rebuttal to The Times’ “To Fall In Love With Anyone, Do This” piece. Perfectly titled: “To Fall Out of Love, Do This.” Read it here, and if you dare, run through the 36 questions that “no one in a relationship should actually ask” with your loved one.

high tech workouts: bari on good morning america!

Did you catch us on Good Morning America this morning? GMA host Mara Schiavocampo stopped by to get the scoop on our cutting-edge ultrasound measurement system, BodyMetrix, from trainer Courtney. And Triber Diem, who has used the system to strategize and track her weight loss journey at bari, shared her story and results. Watch the segment below.

The BodyMetrix system is the most precise way to measure your body composition and track your progress. How? It uses ultrasound to accurately measure fat thickness and calculate body fat percentage and weight distribution. Call or email your local studio to schedule your barirx consult, which includes measurements and fitness prescription from a bari expert ($50).

don’t have a passion? just do it with passion.

This post was originally published as part of a guest series on Glowing Co.

“What do you want to do when you grow up?”

When we’re kids, we answer this question with reckless abandon for logic, feasibility or finance; we choose something that sounds fun, cool or luxurious and we wholeheartedly declare: I want to be an actress/brain surgeon/president/astronaut/professional ice cream taster.

As we mature, we start to think about what makes sense for our lives. What will make me enough money to live the life I want to live? What am I good at, and where does that fit in this world? We think logically, but I don’t think we ever really abandon this thirst for passion. We want to do something that’s ours — something that, when we answer the question “what do you do?,” people nod and think “of course, that’s so you.” We want to wake up and feel excited about our work; we want to be able to say “x” is my passion.

A lot of people do have a passion, a calling, a talent that they were born to do. If you’re passionate about something, do it. And do it with passion.

I do not have a passion or a calling, and most people I know don’t. I think as a culture we are dangerously training ourselves and others to “find our passion,” and what is happening is people are unsatisfied with what they’re currently doing while they pursue an unrequited quest. Searching for “your passion” — like there’s this solitary skill or field you’ve been called to — will make your head spin (which, for the record, is not conducive to productivity).

This is not to say passion should not be part of your equation. In fact, passion is a quintessential ingredient to a happy life. But passion is not exclusive to the chosen ones who have a calling or a passion.

What happens when you stop searching for passion and simply live and act passionately? You actually do wake up excited to take on your day.

That’s what I do each and every day. People assume it’s easy for me to work out every day and eat in-season greens and have a spinach juice for breakfast – simply because I own a fitness company. The truth is I work just as hard as everyone else to stay healthy: tricking/rewarding my mind to get myself to bari for my daily sweat session or order a salad from the menu instead of the gnocchi. I also draw inspiration from my bari tribe and test tips and tricks from the bari blog.

I chose fitness and health because it’s something that is exciting to me and because I know every time I help someone choose health I am also helping them be a little happier. I chose fitness and health because it was a big part of my life, and a part I really enjoyed. I chose fitness and health because I thought there was more we could be doing.

And that’s a very fulfilling way of spending each and every day, surrounded by a product that changes lives, people I love and a culture I believe in. It’s something I am passionate about. And it took me taking a break racking my brain trying to discover my passion to stumble upon this thing I’m truly passionate about.

Making Us Happy This Week

making us happy this week: 12.3.2014

Happy hump day, Tribe! In need of a little mid-week inspiration and positivity? Here’s a round up of the little things that are making us happy this week.

—the #12daysoffitness. Because who doesn’t love a to do list, let alone one that involves fun, sweat and staying on track through the holidays? (<- Trust us, it’s possible.) Get the full bucket list here, and then get sweating and Instagramming for a chance to win a $250 bari prize!

12 days of fitness BLOG-1

—hosting glowing collective’s ambassador party at bari tribeca last night! We had an incredible time connecting, brainstorming and cocktailing (add that one to your dictionary) with Glowing’s incredible ambassadors, all of whom are professional movers, shakers, do-gooders and badasses. Plus, baribounce chased down with rosé + treats from Victory Garden? You weren’t too bad, Tuesday.


—discovering clothes with emojis, by way of the vintage twinWe stumbled upon the NYC pop up shop on Bowery a couple of weekends ago, and it was love at first emoji fashion sight. This brand also has awesome, non-emoji-laden vintage stuff, too but we’re really partial to those emojis.

—new insta obsession #1: harlow and sage. Having a rough day/week/year? We promise that these two guys can fix that.


—new insta obsession #2: bros being basic. Thank you to Refinery29 for this find. It is so, so hysterical, and it is making us feel so very basic.
