Top 5 Posts of 2015: #2 Are Barre Workouts Good For You?

Hi Beauties!

Welcome back. We’re wrapping up the year by counting down the top 5 posts of 2015…


#2: Are Barre Workouts Good For You?

I receive this question a lot, to which I usually answer, “it depends.”

As you know, I recently went through a certification course to teach barre classes. As a Pilates instructor and former dancer it seemed like the natural thing to do. I was looking for a way to incorporate more variety into my teaching and bring new workouts to you here on The Balanced Life.

One of the main reasons I decided to pursue my barre certification was to bring a smart, safe, effective perspective to the barre fitness world.

If you’ve taken barre classes in person you may have noticed that they vary greatly from studio-to-studio and teacher-to-teacher. This is true for most forms of exercise, but as the barre trend is on the rise (Xtend Barre, Floor-Barre, Pure Barre, BarreConcept, Barre Method, Barre Boot Camp, Physique 57, Barre 3, etc.) I think it is important to make sure that we are being smart about our approach to these kinds of workouts, especially if you’re doing barre workouts online….CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL POST.

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate!
