So, why the Barre Workout?

The Barre Workout uses a combination of postures inspired by ballet while also adding elements from other disciplines like Yoga, Pilates and functional training. The workout mainly has two factors: a ballet bar and exercise equipment such as mini-balls and small hand weights.

Benefits of a Barre Workout!

Your body is being worked from head to toe allowing the body to feel stretched, strengthened and invigorated. The Barre Workout focuses on conquering both strength and flexibility equally. After attending just a few classes weekly, a person can see vast changes such as improved posture, thinner thighs, chiseled arms, a sculpted back, flat abs, and a lifted seat..but, HOW?!

What you are in for when arriving at a Barre studio…

The Barre Workout mainly involves eight main workout “stages” focusing on the large muscle groups (such as the arms and thighs) intertwined with small stretch periods in between.  The classes are broken down into different segments such as arm work, thigh work, seat or glute work, round back, flat back, core work or curl, back dancing, and final stretch.

 

The Barre Workout…Danskin Style!

Form is crucial during the Barre workout, therefore it is important that the instructor is able to clearly see a person’s body. The recommended dress is often tight fitting clothing which includes leggings, bodysuits, tank tops and yoga pants. Again, the emphasis is on the right movement of  large muscle groups. Tight fitting clothing allows you and the instructor to see results and to also see if the moves are being done correctly.

Three very popular Barre Workout studios located all over the country are the Pure Barre Studio, The Bar Method, and The Dailey Method. What most studios have in common is not only being a gym, but having a community of members who all share the same goal of being fit, healthy, confident and happy.
