Get moving: Your muscles will hate you for taking a barre class at The Bar Method

I waltzed into my class at The Bar Method (3144 N. Sheffield Ave. 773-935-2150) expecting it to err on the side of easy. I work out multiple times per week and thought a few plies would be nothing.

    Get moving: Your muscles will hate you for taking a barre class at The Bar Method
    Have your muscles ever burned so intensely that you fear they may actually be on fire? No? Then you clearly haven't taken a barre class yet. A barre fitness class, inspired by ballet training, works by isolating specific muscle groups and toning them with precise and repetitive movements, essentially until you can't anymore-aka your limbs will be shaking so hard that you'll fear they may fall off.

The cameras will be placed on city-owned light poles mainly along Belmont Avenue, Addison Street, Irving Park Road and Lake Shore Drive, officials said, although the exact locations are still being determined.

Along with Lakeview, the cameras will extend into North Center, Irving Park and Avondale. Within the 44th Ward, 11 cameras from the Cubs' contribution will roughly double the number of police cameras on the street, Lawson said. 

    Cubs To Give $1M To Put 30 Police Cameras Throughout Wrigleyville
