For those of you looking for a more meditative and strength-focused fitness approach, Barre is a great option. We respect that many of you like to handle cardio on your own – running, swimming, etc – but need some help with your strength training. Barre is specially designed for people like you as it is slow, steady, controlled, strength training.
Barre is derived from classic ballet stretches and moves. It is designed for people who want to be strong and long as it develops strength in small muscles over time. You will use a floor mat, a ballet bar, and small handweights as I, or one of my colleagues, walks you through the stretches and exercises to get you where you want to be.
You won’t leave this class too sweaty or exhausted, but you will leave feeling stronger. And you’ll definitely wake up sore the next day. And for those of you who like a small group setting for both cardio and strength training, we offer a Zumba dance class either directly before or after every Barre class. Both clocking in at 45 minutes, you can get a lot of exercise into an hour and a half!
