One of the most frequently asked questions by new clients is “What am I going to achieve by attending a barre class?” Let’s have a look at ‘why barre’…
1. Body Transformation
You will be astounded by the results barre will have on your entire body; primarily the improved body tone and shape. Barre classes lift the gluts, sculpt beautiful dancer legs, tone the stomach and waistline and carve shape into the arms and back.
2. Increased Flexibility & Strength
Barre is a low impact workout that uses resistance to gain full body strength. Flowing movements and stretches increase your flexibility, encouraging the muscles to develop with length.
3. Improved posture & Spine Health
The pilates and yoga elements of Barre allow you to develop body awareness that assists the development of your anatomical placement and muscle memory for beautiful posture.
Flowing movements of your joints, including the spine, enhances general mobility and overall joint/spine health.
4. Cardio Health
Classes all work to increase the heart rate for cardio health. Empower Barre classes at Barre One studio is particularly focused on increasing the heart rate, with a parallel to interval training.
5. Low impact & injury prevention
When Barre is taught well and by qualified instructors, the workout is kind to the joints. Barre One instructors always provide clients with pathologies or limitations, regressions to best suit their bodies. Whether you are training for a marathon, or working with a developing or ageing body, barre exercises are designed to create stable, strong joints & muscles.
