Barre classes are a workout technique inspired by elements of ballet, yoga, and Pilates, that focuses on low-impact, high intensity movements designed to strengthen and tone your body. It is also designed to boost endurance, improve balance, increase range of motion, promote better posture and alignment, and help with weight management. This class is for ALL ages. We have ladies from their 20s to their 70s in our classes!
While this style of class is dance-inspired, ballet is by no means a prerequisite. Anyone can benefit from it. Barre classes are typically low impact and gentle on the joints. Plus, the moves can be modified to fit your strength and flexibility level. The great thing about this method is that it meets you where you are in life, whether you are recovering from an injury, bouncing back from a pregnancy, new to exercise, or just looking for a challenge.
Most classes mix in elements of glute and abdominal work, cardio, and stretching that take place away from the barre. A chunk of the class may be done on the floor, and incorporate balls, bands, or light dumbbells to achieve an extra burn.
“I’ve been attending Barre fit classes for over a year – in the studio and now online! These classes are fab, fun and Nina is always smiley and enthusiastic (and very fit!) I’ve learned a lot about muscle groups and how to look after my core. Nina also provides awesome massage therapies – which reminds me I need one! Must book.”
“If you haven’t experienced a Barre Fit class yet then you should definitely give it a go. I’m not the fittest or youngest but the great thing about Nina’s classes is that you can build up your strength and agility at a pace that’s right for you, something which Nina is very aware and sympathetic of. But if you want to push yourself there’s no stopping you doing that either. For me this approach is perfect as like most women we have good and bad days physically and emotionally, yet Nina is always incredibly supportive and goes out of her way to give brilliant advice and put you first. Running a professional business and being a caring, kind and giving person is not always easy to achieve but Nina balances this perfectly. We all need a bit of SWWC in our lives and I couldn’t recommend it more.”
