Why your butt...and your body needs Barre class.
Words: Christy Rose
What’s all the hype about this Barre thing, anyway? Well, here at The Chrome Bar we think it’s pretty spectacular and love the results. As we’ve found out, there are plenty of reasons for your booty and your body to love Barre! Here are 5 reason to get you inspired and ready for class.
Full Body Workout: Arms, legs, abs - check! All in one 60 minute class. Rest assured you’re getting a full body workout focusing on the parts you most want to define and tone. Beginner or long-time exercisers all get a great workout, no experience required.
Quick Results: Want your cardio and no impact too? Barre gets your heart rate up for the calorie burn you want and the results you crave, without damaging impact to your knees, hips and back. It also burns fat and builds muscle at the same time. Most of us don’t have enough time to do as many separate cardio and strengthening sessions as we’d like to, so Barre is a great pick for busy people who want a lot out of a short amount of time. It’s a 2-for-1, saving you time and getting real, faster results.
Build Lean Muscle: ballerinas get it from years of ballet class, but you don’t have to be a prima ballerina to get in on Barre. Barre takes cues from ballet, yoga, and Pilates to bring you long, lean muscles with the added benefit of muscular endurance that some strength workouts don’t always have. No tutus required.
Improve Posture and Balance: Barre works on the supporting muscles of the body, allowing it to work more gracefully and efficiently. Targeting the shoulder, hip, and core stabilizers improves balance and promotes a more confident and upright posture.
Stress Relief and Endorphins: Yes, we may want to look better, but more importantly, we want to feel better in our own skin. Taking a barre class leaves you with a sense of accomplishment and knowing you gave your all. You’ve unlocked some feel-good endorphins and worked out some stress for a refreshed body and mind.
Moving your body and gaining awareness, strength and mobility is one of the greatest feelings in the world. At The Chrome Bar we love helping you on this journey.
