6 Reasons To Try Barre Attack Today
Last Updated: 15/11/16
Barre workouts are designed to give you a long, lean dancer-like physique. Participants get addicted to the challenge of the workout and they especially love the results they achieve. Remember, to achieve optimal results a well balanced eating plan is also an integral part of the plan.
Barre Attack is a dynamic fusion of Pilates, Ballet and Fitness. It’s an all body workout using the classic Ballet Barre that attacks those dreaded problem areas — legs, butt, thighs and arms.
Renee Scott, the creator of Barre Attack and Master Trainer says
“Barre Attack is designed to give clients a sexy body confidence. It helps with posture, flexibility, balance and definitely helps with overall fitness, staying trim and getting toned. Best of all though it’s fun!”
What’s in a Barre Attack class?
- Music will start pumping and the instructor will lead by example. Just follow them and concentrate on your position and timing.
- Classes generally start with a warm-up to get you in the mood and allow you to loosen up. Relax, the fun is about to start.
- The actual structure can vary but you can expect the following:
- Barre Sections: Think modified Ballet and expect to hear terms like 1st position, 2nd position and Plié. In these sessions you’ll generally have one hand on the barre and be giving your legs and butt a serious workout.
- Elastic Sections: Think large elastic bands looped over the Barre that you then use for resistance. Facing away from the Barre you might punch out while holding the elastic, or hold a lunge while doing an upper body rotation. All of this will strengthen your core, arms and legs. It can also be a great way to de-stress.
- Cardio Sections: With music flowing different types of cardio intervals are dispersed through the class. This should really help with your overall fitness, burning calories and will certainly get the blood flowing.
You don’t need to bring any special equipment and don’t need any experience. Many clients simply wear normal gym or workout attire, bare feet or socks, and bring a towel and water. Below is an overview of what you might expect from a typical class, you’ll love it!
Remember, drink plenty of water, let your instructor know if you’ve got any health issues, and focus on your body position and timing. Once you’ve attended a few classes some of the moves will become far more natural and that means it’s working, most importantly though have Fun!
