Barre Classes

We are running a number of weekly Barre classes from 14th January. Barre classes mix elements of Pilates, dance and functional training. The moves are choreographed to motivating music. In each energising and targeted workout, you will use the Barre, plus exercise equipment such as mini-balls and small hand weights to sculpt, slim and stretch your entire body.
Barre fitness is ideal if you're just getting into exercise. The classes will improve your balance, build strength, make you more flexible, burn calories and improve stability through a stronger core.  As you get more comfortable and fitter, you can increase the intensity by adding extra weights and more challenging moves.
Can you lose weight from Barre classes?
Yes. Barre is a challenging whole body workout designed to strengthen and tone all muscles of the body. It Increases muscle tone, stimulates your metabolism and enhances body awareness—all factors in weight loss.
Is Barre good for Toning?
Barre will help you build and strengthen your muscles, improve your core strength & posture and give your body a lean and toned look.  Unlike regular Pilates, Barre incorporates aerobics into each workout to strengthen your cardiovascular system and help you burn more calories.
