Why I love Barre!

I love Barre because I finally found an exercise where it's ok to be a total girly girl! I know that sounds crazy but I'm prissy from the word go! I run like a girl! I throw like a girl! Now, I can plie and point my toes while working out! Totally me!

But seriously this is one hard workout! Many of the moves are based on classic ballet positions and was developed by a ballerina. It's full body conditioning and it's challenging!  Barre focuses on isometric movements utilizing a ballet barre. I also love how there are some yoga moves mixed into our classes. It's a tough workout but very addicting and I look forward to working out which is half the battle - getting to the gym in the first place.

Have you tried Barre yet? "Most barre-based classes use a combination of postures inspired by ballet and other disciplines like yoga and Pilates. 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." - Fitness Magazine
