Barre Forty Five
Barre Forty Five a brisk-paced, calorie intensive barre workout that only takes a slim 45 minutes out of your day. Think of it as an accelerated version of our signature Ballet Physique class—but with a more confident attitude! Expect the same thorough workout from head to toe, but with simpler choreography and a sharper focus on moderate to high resistance; here, you’ll get to play with all sorts of equipment including tubes, rings, sliders, and weights to build lean and strong muscles in the same time capacity as a 1 hour class. While Barre Forty Five is 100% low-impact, you can look forward to a significant calorie burn through the use of dynamic, multi-muscular movements.
Bring a sweat towel for this 60-minute class that feels more like a dance party than a workout. Each class features three 10 minute sequences of continuous dance cardio designed to elevate your heart rate and challenge your endurance. Because cardio sets alternate with shorter intervals of seat, thigh, and ab work, you’ll always have an opportunity to catch your breath in preparation for the next cardio party. Don’t fret about not knowing the moves; our seasoned instructors will break down the choreography and commit to repeating the same routines for one month. Through repetition, you’ll gain confidence, coordination, a stronger heart, and measurable results…although, you’ll have too much fun to even realize it!
Ballet Physique®, our signature class, is a high-intensity barre workout that blends strength training with ballet-inspired movement. Designed using the principles of barre technique (fatiguing each muscle through targeted, small-range movements), this class will effectively produce an exquisitely sculpted and lean body. Prepare to chisel your arms, shape your thighs, lift your seat, and flatten your abs from a variety of positions with a mix of evolving and innovative choreography. Bonus: modifications are provided for students of every level!
Because our lives demand that we have a strong core, this is the perfect workout for beginners, barre enthusiasts, and Pilates devotees alike! Mat Physique combines the body sculpting system used in our Ballet Physique format with key concepts of mat Pilates. The goal is to target the body’s smaller, stabilizing muscle groups in order to create a figure that’s polished and balanced with a set of flat, chiseled abs as its centerpiece. As in a traditional mat class, you can expect to work your abdominals, seat, and back muscles with an emphasis on posture, alignment, and breathing techniques.
