What is Fitness Barre?
Barre is a challenging, body altering experience that reshapes your body entirely. Our program focuses on core conditioning fusing elements of ballet, yoga, Pilates, strength training, and orthopedic stretching into one powerful, body sculpting routine giving you long, lean muscles, a flatter stomach, toned legs, and a high, rounded seat. In class, each muscle group is targeted systematically with small, sustained movements then stretched out to create the long muscle tone without the bulk. Increases strength and flexibility, improves posture, and boosts energy level.
What are the benefits of the program?
Aside from developing long, lean muscle tone and losing inches off those stubborn body areas, this precisely choreographed one hour class will significantly help in increasing your overall strength, flexibility, improve your posture, and boost your metabolism which helps you to burn fat. Everyone benefits and improves at their own pace with much encouragement from Robin and her fellow instructors. Through the experience the touch of personal training in a group environment.
What equipment is used in class?
Light weights are offered to tone arms and shoulders. For other work — at the ballet barre and on the floor — body weight alone provides added resistance. There are no machines, no heavy lifting, and no high aerobic jumps, which makes this low-impact routine appropriate for people of any age and any level of fitness. Other props used: balls, straps, bands, and blocks. As with any exercise program, check with your physician before starting at Fitness Barre.
