New Buzz in Town: Barre Workout

Sculpt, stretch, sweat and tone your trouble zones with Barre workout. Just press play and get ready to feel your booty burn as you tone your entire lower body and abs.


Barre workouts are the combination of the precision of Pilates, alignment of yoga and the grace and technique of ballet. This exercise is designed to tone the thighs, lift the butt, sculpt the arms and flatten the abdominals. It is one of the fastest, safest and most effective ways to change your body, improve posture, strength, flexibility and stamina. Full range muscular contractions are performed, followed by end range isometric contractions and then a static hold in order to fatigue the muscle.


Barre workout begins with a standing warm up and progresses to the barre for glute, outer thigh, inner thigh and hip sculpting. You will move on to arm blasting moves to strengthen, sculpt, and define your biceps, triceps, back and shoulders. Always finish the barre workout on the mat with an arm & abs series and finally blast your core with Pilates inspired moves with the mini ball.


It is the best way to create and elegant posture, a toned body and helps in keeping you fit and healthy. Sometimes we find barre workout intimidating especially if we haven’t done it before, but truly this is a fun way to learn the basic steps and start your journey towards your healthy, toned, long and lean body.


Barre Workout Tips:


* KEEP YOUR CORE STRONG! Engage your core muscles from start to finish. Zip up through your pelvic floor, firm your navel to your spine and keep your shoulders relaxed.


* KEEP YOUR BODY LONG! Reach with energy through the crown of the head, lengthen your torso keeping your body upright throughout. Also, remember to lengthen behind the knee and send the energy all the way down to your toes.

Be proud of yourself, every time you start to do the barre workouts and every time you will get at the end of it, you are one step closer to your goal! Never give up!
