Why we LOVE that #barreburn.
For centuries women have sought out the “golden goose” of women’s fitness… a low-impact, full body workout that increases strength, muscle tone, cardiovascular endurance, and flexibility without “bulking up”, breaking down, or finishing the class in a (huge) pile of sweat.
Well search no further, ladies. Enter “barre”.
Barre is a truly unique form of exercise. Combining elements from the very best fitness disciplines, it is a brilliant solution for women of all ages and abilities. From ballet, we get a focus on length, posture, control and muscle endurance. From yoga, a focus on mind-body connection and an emphasis on stretching. From functional movement and body weight training, we build strength. Finally, Pilates principles ensure low-impact workouts that are kind to the body. The exercises are easy to “turn up or down”, depending on ability level, so the workout is totally accessible whether you’re a beginner or a long time #barrebabe.
And the best part? Dedicated students see results fast. With an ideal weekly schedule including at least 3-4 sessions of barre, students should see more definition, increased flexibility and improvements to their posture and muscle control within just a few weeks.
So bear with the burn, baby, and embrace the shake. It’ll be worth it in no time.
