Suppose you’ve been missing your regular barre classes; no need to worry! You have an alternative you may not have known about: barre workouts at home.
And if you’re short on time, again, don’t fret! There are many things that take 15 minutes: cooling down after a yoga class, deciding what to order for takeout, and thinking about a caption for your latest post.
Here’s another task to add to that list: a workout that will actually help transform your body!
You read that right! You don’t have to spend 30 or 45 minutes at the gym.
Doing barre workouts, even for just 15 minutes, comes with many benefits, from upping your calorie burn and working your body into shape to lessening your risk of diseases and adding years to your life!

Are 15-Minute Barre Exercises a Good Workout?
Contrary to popular belief, workouts, especially barre, don’t need to be too long to be effective.
In fact, just 15 minutes of work out per day increases your lifespan, improves cardiovascular and metabolic health, and even sharpens cognitive function.
Barre workouts look easy, especially if you’re used to strength training and HIIT workouts that look intense.
But don’t let that deter you from giving it a try! We guarantee that barre will challenge you with its low-impact movements.
Barre workouts are challenging for our bodies differently than traditional strength training.
Working for each muscle group through small, targeted movements, high repetitions, and lighter weights or just body weight found in barre workouts are great for building deep core strength and strengthening the stabilizing muscles around the joints.
When you’re strapped for time or trying to begin your health and fitness journey, you can definitely squeeze in and enjoy these 15-minute barre workouts in the comfort of your home!
15 minutes may not seem like a lot of time to you, but fitness experts and scientific studies agree it’s enough to make a difference.
Remember, any amount of exercise is better than zero.
And if you’re new to fitness or haven’t been active in a long time, a short, 15-minute workout may be best to start with.
