Why do Barre fitness? What exactly is it? Should I be doing it?
If you want to build long lean muscle, enhance strength, flexibility, balance and tone those hard to reach muscles in your legs, arms and core then 'YES' Barre is definitely for you!
But the best part of it, no previous experience is necessary. No matter your age, weight, fitness level - you can hit the Barre and get results.
BARRE SCULPT uses a combination of postures inspired by Ballet and Pilates - focusing on conditioning the body and working on muscles to develop the posture of a dancer. The barre is used as a prop to balance while doing exercises that focus on isometric strength training (holding your body still while you contract a specific set of muscles) combined with high reps of small range-of-motion movements. The class incorporates resistance bands, hand weights and Pilates balls to help bring the burn during those reps, as well as mat work for targeted core work.
