Many say that after only five classes, you'll see changes in your body, gain strength, and tone those hard-to-target muscles in your core, arms, and legs. And the best part: anyone - no matter their age, weight, or fitness level - can hit the bar and get results.
Barre-based classes focus on isometric strength training. You will hold your body still while your contract a specific set of muscles combined with high reps of small range-of-motion movements. You'll start with a warm up and sequence of upper-body exercises. Next, you'll use the ballet barre (or chair) and your own body weight for resistance to focus on the legs, thighs, and seat muscles. Your core will be engaged the entire class and then targeted at the end with a series of mat based abdominal exercises. For the cool down, you'll go through a series of stretches to increase flexibility and allow your muscles to recover.
Bring a light set of hand weights, a mat, and a water bottle
