We change the structure of our Barre class every eight weeks to mix it up and so you don’t get bored. For you regulars we tell you what has changed, and for those of you who haven’t tried Barre, we let you know why you should.
A ballet and Pilates-inspired class to sculpt the body using isometric movements to fatigue the muscles as well as stretch and lengthen the bod, leave you feeling firm and elongated.
What Will It Do For My Body?
Who doesn’t want the body of a ballerina? If you don’t have the coordination of Misty Copeland but still want her enviable figure Frame Barre is for you. Isometric moves target the smaller supporting muscles acting like a corset to trim your waistline, lift and sculpt in all the right places.
By working each muscle to fatigue whilst incorporating lengthening stretches. Frame Barre will give you the long, lean limbs of a dancer.
FULL BODY WORKOUT
In each update the exercises have been selected and put together to work your entire body. The heat raising element fires up your metabolism ensuring calorie burn long after your workout is finished.
So, What’s Changed?
The focus is on stability and muscle activation, expect lots of small pulses while holding another body part in an isometric muscle contraction. Our focus isn’t always the limb we are moving but more the muscles that are remaining still.
The class opens with an 8 minute arm set using small weights for added resistance, all soundtracked to a special extended version of ‘Who Run The World’.
The abs section is broken down, beginning by working the deeper core layers with focus to pelvic floor and TVA abdominals, then finishing the class by working the ‘Peter Andre’ rectus abdominals.
We work through a unilateral post exhaust sequence. This means we do everything on one side first, graduating from bigger muscle groups to smaller ones until we reach a halfway point then repeat it all again the other side. This allows us to identify if we have any strength imbalances between each sides of the body. By working your muscles to fatigue you’ll not only feel the Frame ‘Barre Burn’ but improve overall muscular endurance.
Why should I come?
Barre is the perfect class for anyone wanting a low impact workout, to feel the burn and to work on posture. Especially good for those who spend hours over a keyboard as it always works the upper back and active length through the hip flexors (that get tight when you sit for long periods of time) while giving you all over body tone, a strong core and firm butt. Expect a banging playlist which changes every 8 weeks with each update.
