What is Barre Workout?
If you think "ballet" when you hear "barre" workout, think again. While there may be a barre in most studios, the workout itself has nothing to do with plies and releves.
The major benefits of barre are improved posture, muscle definition, weight loss, increased flexibility and reduced stress. Women at just about any fitness level can sign up for a class.
Barre fitness is a hybrid workout class - combining ballet-inspired moves with elements of Pilates, dance, and strength training.
Most classes incorporate a ballet barre and use fitness moves. Barre also focuses on high reps of small range movements.
But the real difference between barre and other workouts are the isometric movements you usually perform - holding your body still while you contract specific muscles, until you shake and feel the burn!
A lot of classes start with a warm up of push ups, triceps dips and planks, before moving to the barre, to focus on legs and your glutes. Then many classes end on the mat as you target the core, before a yoga-inspired cool-down. Some classes also use resistance bands' TRX, Ball, and light hand weights to make the classes tougher to and to help build lean muscle, and mats for targeted core work.
Our Barre Studio
Barre Studio established in 2018 in TLV by Ayala Levit.
I remember two things about my first barre class. One is how impossible the class was, and how sore I was for what felt like a week afterward. The other was the instructor, and how incredibly relaxed and poised she seemed throughout. That was the moment when I decided to become a Barre instructor and to bring this beautiful and special workout to the Israeli market.
I opened the first Barre Studio in Israel in Tel Aviv.
