Sequences of ballet and pilates for a strong cardio workout

Barre implements sequences of ballet and Pilates moves giving you a strong cardio workout, and whole body one too. The classes integrate the fat-burning element with muscle-shaping dynamic exercises to quickly and safely reshapes the entire body. This non-impact workout implements both the ballet barre and the mat exercises to target all major muscle groups. Like reformer, it will give you a whole body workout. The result is the recognisable Barre body, featuring sculpted arms, flat abs, a lifted seat, and elongated thighs.

What to know for your Barre class

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.

Don’t be surprised if your class incorporates light handheld weights to bring the burn during all those reps, as well as mats for targeted core work.

Unlike reformer, the major benefits of barre are increased flexibility. Like all pilates, it will improve posture, muscle definition and help tone all over. Plus, women at just about any fitness level can sign up for a class. Barre classes are fine for pregnant women because they’re not high impact. They may even help with imbalance (a common issue during pregnancy due to that growing belly) and stability.

Once completed there is time to ask questions, and seek advice on classes you could join. We want you to leave your first class feeling stronger and more confident
