Pure Barre is the ultimate overall body workout that is low impact but very challenging. It's been termed the “Intelligent Exercise” and we have to agree! Inspired by the graceful poise and movement of ballet, Pure Barre was created to sculpt and tone your body utilizing small isometric movements all choreographed to the beat of an awesome playlist in just 55 minutes.
You will sweat. You will feel the burn. You will push yourself. During this 55 minute class, you will tone those hips, thighs, abs, arms and booty. The Barre workout is not for the faint of heart, it's for both men and women looking for a challenge and those competitive with the goal of beating their yesterday selves. You will tuck your way into a burn and work muscles that you probably didn't realize that you had.
At Physi, we can't write about a workout without experiencing it first hand, and experience it we did. Here are a few helpful tips to get you started.
After you have all your gear, get yourself a spot along the barre in front of the mirror. Take a deep breath, prepare yourself and accept the challenge before you. Since these classes can be pretty packed they follow a structured flow:
Barre classes feature the same movements throughout and are meant for multiple skill levels. Even if you are a veteran you won't ever be held back in a class with a bunch of first timers since you are in control when it comes to skill level - the deeper you fall into the moves, the more challenging it can be. When it comes to Barre, you are your own coach and it's up to you on how challenging you make it.
If you are up for a bigger challenge than the traditional Barre class, there are a few other options The first are group intensive specialty classes that focus on specific body areas and last about 75 minutes.
Pure Barre Intensive Classes:
Then, there is Pure Barre Platform, a newly added class that combines high intensity interval training with the Pure Barre foundation. See the challenge for yourself here.
We accepted the Barre challenge and felt the burn as we got our booty kicked. We give this class 5 Physi's and will be adding it as one of our personal aerobic activities goals. If you download the Physi app and create a profile, you too can add aerobics to your list of activities and meet up with us, some of your friends or meet some new people at one of these classes!
Now it's your turn! We challenge you to challenge yourself, take a Pure Barre class and invite your friends using Physi to hit those fitness goals together and share your experience with us on Facebook @Physi.Rocks!!!
