Life can be extremely busy and finding the time and motivation to work out is a challenge. But not to worry, because we’re about to unravel an exciting fitness trend: barre workouts, your new favorite way to work out! 

Add to that Physique 57’s dynamic approach to barre and prepare to be amazed. Physique 57 adds a unique twist to traditional barre, promising a healthy, sculpted body and a confidence boost. 

So, if you’re curious, eager, or simply looking for a change, you’re in for a treat. We’re here to guide you through the fantastic world of barre workouts and get you all set to dive in.  

What are Barre Workouts? 

Imagine a blend of ballet, yoga, and strength training — that’s the essence of barre workouts. This is not your typical high-impact gym session.  

Instead, barre workouts are a fusion of graceful movements, flexibility exercises, and muscle-toning techniques.  

But what makes barre so awesome and popular among fitness enthusiasts these days?  

First, they’re accessible to pretty much everyone. You don’t need to be a dancer or a gym buff to begin.  

Barre exercises use body weight as resistance, so you’re in control of how intense it gets. Plus, they are fantastic for toning muscles without bulking up—think lean and sculpted physique. 

But it’s not just about the physical benefits. Barre also challenges the mind. You’re coordinating your movements, focusing on your balance, all while feeling the burn in your muscles.  

It’s a dance, a workout, and a meditation session in one. 

And guess what? Barre workouts are not just for the ladies. Men can definitely experience everything barre has to offer too.  

So if you’re looking for a workout that’s as enjoyable as it is effective, barre workouts might just become your new best friend.

Getting Started With Barre Workouts 

So you’re curious about barre and eager to give it a shot. But first things first, let’s talk about how to dip your toes into this exercise form without feeling overwhelmed. 

  1. Set Your Goals 

Before you start any workout routine, it’s important to think about what you want to achieve.  

Do you want to tone your muscles? Feel stronger? Improve your flexibility? Lose weight? Or do you simply want to have fun while working out?  

Having clear goals will definitely help you stay on track.  

  1. Choose the Right Class 

Barre workouts come in various styles, from dance and ballet-inspired moves to high-energy, cardio-packed sessions. There’s definitely something for everyone!  

You can explore Physique 57 On Demand and find what clicks with you among the hundreds of barre workouts on offer.  

  1. Gear Up 

The great thing about barre is that you don’t need a lot of expensive equipment that takes up space. Your body is the machine and you are the sculptor with barre! A comfortable pair of leggings, a supportive sports bra, and grippy socks (recommended for stability) are sometimes all you need. 

A barre can be easily substituted by a chair, counter top, or sturdy piece of furniture. Barre workouts may use heavy weights (5-10 lbs. or more), light weights (2-4 lbs.), a resistance band, and a small playground ball. Get your gear at a special rate here

And don’t forget your water bottle! 

  1. Create Your Workout Space 

If you’re planning to start working out, having a designated workout area is handy. Your space need not be fancy, and with barre, you don’t need much space! 

If you’re starting out at home, roll out your yoga mat, be sure you have some space to move your limbs around the periphery, and make it your very own fitness zone.  

  1. Consistency is Key 

Consistency is always emphasized in any workout routine.  

Barre workouts can be challenging, especially if you’re new. Try incorporating barre into your routine at least three times a week or whatever fits your lifestyle.  

The more consistent you are, the more you’ll notice positive changes in your body and how you feel.  

And remember, it’s absolutely okay to modify exercises and do them at your own pace. At Physique 57 we encourage you to honor your body. The goal is not to master every move right away. 

Progress is progress, no matter your pace. Here are 3 tips when doing barre workouts at home

So, what’s the buzz about Physique 57? 

Think of it as the rockstar version of traditional barre workouts. They take all the elegance and strength-building of barre and add a splash of high energy and creativity. Imagine lively music, enthusiastic instructors, and a vibe that’s more like a dance party than a workout class. 

But it’s not just about the vibe. Physique 57 workouts are designed to challenge your muscles in new and dynamic ways. 

You’ll push boundaries, sculpt your body, work muscles you didn’t even know were there, and have a blast while doing it!  

Plus, the community energy of Physique 57 classes is contagious. You’ll find support and motivation, and maybe even make a few barre buddies.

We’ve got you covered! 

Here’s how you can make barre workouts a regular thing in your daily life and keep the benefits coming. 

  1. Find Your Rhythm

Consistency is key, but so is balance. 

  1. Bring a Friend

  1. Track Your Progress 

Keeping a workout journal or using a fitness app can be a game-changer. It helps you see how far you’ve come and gives you something to aim for.

Celebrate your achievements, whether it’s holding a position longer or mastering a tricky barre move.
