  • BARRE 191

    Join us for a workout that applies a combination of postures inspired by Ballet, Yoga and Pilates. This high tempo, fun and effective practice is our original class style - so be prepared to spend most of the class at the barre.

     

    A typical 60 minute Barre 191 Workout includes a warm up sequence of upper-body exercises, which include: weighted balls, resistance bands, push-ups, planks and other moves to target the biceps, triceps, chest, and back muscles. Next, we move to the Barre, utilising our own body weight for resistance to focus on the thigh and butt muscles. Our core muscles will be engaged for the entire class and we will finish the those abdominal muscles off with a targeted core session towards the end of the class. Finally, we'll cool down - moving through a series of stretches to increase flexibility and allow our muscles to recover.

    BARRE FIT

    If you love Barre 191, you’ll love Barre Fit. It’s essentially Barre 191 with a fitness twist. We’ll still be working on those small muscles - thus working on lengthening, strengthening and stabilising - but with the inclusion of some big muscle exercises, developing your overall strength and power. As such, it will be the perfect package for having toned muscles but also visible muscle, leaving you fit, confident and sculpted.

     

    Barre Fit is meant to give you self-confidence and fearlessness. It will give you these through the physical gains that you will acquire and through the abilities that you will learn. These in turn, will give you the confidence to show yourself on the beach, to try out a new sport and become completely oblivious as to what another people think of you. By working your balance, stability, strength and power you will be ready for any kind of challenge that comes your way, either physical or emotional.

     

    This fierce, challenging, energising combination of barre + fitness is designed for body + mind. Love Barre + Fitness and looking for a full workout? This is the one for you.
